Fantasy Women: The literary roots of phallocentrism in modern fantasy computer games
This essay explores the reason why fantasy computer games continue to use sexist stereotypes of women including scantily-clad temptresses, Amazonian warrior-princesses and evil witches. It draws a parallel between an obscure erotic fantasy novel by Lin Carter called Tara of the Twilight and the techniques still being used in modern fantasy story-telling.
