    Summary

    Ahh, Barbara Walker's Amazon: A Novel. A book that stars Antiope, a time-traveler from a mythological matriarchal past who finds her way to what seems like the 70s but is supposed to be the 90s. Upon her arrival, she meets a writer named Diana, who gives her room and board for the price of Antiope's image and story. Diana's write-up of Antiope's supposed life and customs leads to a nationwide fad, where people try to emulate Antiope's customs, which include mother goddesses, a hodgepodge of rituals belonging to different pagan groups past and present and possibly non-existent, vigilantism, bodily mutilation for those accused of violence against women, abandoning babies with disabilities to have them slowly starve to death, rampant sexual assault against men, possible child grooming, disabling craftspeople so that they can't escape, gender essentialism, equating womb-ownership with womanhood, and genocide against the Greeks.

    Yes, this is supposed to be a feminist novel, why do you ask?

    This story takes place after the establishment of Bloodworth's Temple, in which the universe corrects itself.
