Science fiction and fantasy often deal with war, violence and military life. What clichés have developed in this genre, and why? And can things be done differently? Three books by women in the 21st century that deal directly with war – Naomi Novik’s His Majesty's Dragon, Karin Lowachee’s Warchild, and Kameron Hurley’s God’s War – present alternative visions of violent conflict and point to new ways of subverting familiar narratives.
