"She was hardly the only science fiction writer of her day to craft beautiful sentences, but she was (as her peers recognized) one of the best — and she was the only one to show at once such a power of invention, an awareness of gender and justice, and a tragic sense of life."

Well, no, but nice to try to praise her by belittling the others doing similarly.

Fortunately, Raccoona is good enough to transcend even such NPR-like praise.
