Description

‘Tiptree’s narratives of alien worlds and alienation make up one of science fiction’s most vivid and influential bodies of work’ The New York Times

This landmark collection of short stories shows the feminist pioneer James Tiptree Jr. at her most inventive and daring. Here a fake girl becomes a living advertisement, women choose alien invaders over the men of Earth, a creature discovers that love means death and a pandemic engulfs the planet.

‘Feminist dystopian fiction owes just as much to this woman – who wrote as a man – as Margaret Atwood’ Vox
