This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the contemporary fantastic writings of Scottish women. The findings reveal the fragility of rigid parameters of thinking and highlight the possible shift to the right in politics across Europe. The analysis of the notions of three kinds of otherness explored in the book also raised further questions about the future of the ‘others’ and the aftermath of postmodernism in a post-feminist, globalised twenty-first century.

Keywords: fantastic writings; Scottish women; politics; Europe; otherness; postmodernism; post-feminist
