Provide a space between each one. No need for essay formatting. Reader Response 1: Varley, “Air Raid” (Wesleyan 525). The use of prosthetics is widespread in the future era of Varley’s story, which also emphasizes that one of Mandy’s friends, Dave, can easily be fitted up to double for Diana, a female flight-attendant. For Varley, evidently, a person’s spirit/character/essence is not dictated by the anatomical details of his/her body. Debilitated and slowly deteriorating Mandy says scornfully of the healthy but unfit twentieth-century passengers, “Muscles like horses, all of them, but they can hardly run up a flight of stairs” (533). Despite her multiple disabilities, Mandy is clearly this story’s hero. In what traits does Varley suggest that her heroism lies? What details of Mandy’s behavior on this mission belie her tough-talking persona? Finally, if the captured twentieth-century passengers and crew are to survive as far-future colonists, what traits does Varley suggest that they will need? Reader Response 2: Kessel, “Invaders” (Wesleyan 654). At the end of the story, the author/narrator fulfills one of the most powerful fantasies of science fiction, that is, he goes back into the tragic past and he changes it. What is the effect of presenting the story’s “happy ending” in the conventional words of the fairy-tale? Reader Response 3: Russ, "When It Changed" (Wesleyan 507): How are the returning men described? How does the narrator succeed in “defamiliarizing” them, in making the reader view them as repulsive “aliens”? Reader Response 4: Leslie F. Stone's “The Conquest of Gola” (Wesleyan 96) is about, among other things, “the battle of the sexes.” How does the narrator contrast the women of Gola and the men of Detaxal?
