Introduction and Notes by Brian Stableford.

The World Turned Upside Down: The earliest fantasy of gender role reversal ever penned. An idealized woman, Celestine, climbs out of her circumscribed existence to rule a foreign kingdom, only to mandate the subjugation of men by women.
A Voyage to the Isle of Utopia; When a shipwreck strands a man in a perfect island civilization, he, after confronting a parade of didactic lectures, accepts that the rigors of logic have rendered obsolete human individuality.
