Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The stories of Alice Sheldon, who wrote as James Tiptree Jr. ( Up the Walls of the World ) until her death in 1987, have been heretofore available mostly in out-of-print collections. Thus the 18 accomplished stories here will be welcomed by new readers and old fans. "The Screwfly Solution" describes a chilling, elegant answer to the population problem. In "Love Is the Plan the Plan Is Death," the title tells the tale--species survival insured by imprinted drives--but the story's force is in its exquisite, lyrical prose and its suggestion that personal uniqueness is possible even within biological imperatives. "The Girl Who Was Plugged In" is a future boy-meets-girl story with a twist unexpected by the players. "The Women Men Don't See " displays Tiptree's keen insight and ability to depict singularity within the ordinary. In Hugo and Nebula award-winning "Houston, Houston, Do You Read?" astronauts flying by the sun slip forward 500 years and encounter a culture that successfully questions gender roles in ours.

Review

Praise for Her Smoke Rose Up Forever

“‘There is just one great collection of Tiptree’s fiction in print...Her Smoke Rose Up Forever from Tachyon Publications. It contains all of her major short stories.’”
New York Times Book Review

“Tachyon’s handsomely produced catch-all collection Her Smoke Rose Up Forever is the perfect place to begin: a lovely piece of book production, from its attractive John Picacio cover art through each of its eighteen indispensable stories printed across well-laid-out pages. It’s a beaut, and you need to read it. Or to reread it.”
Strange Horizons

Her Smoke Rose Up Forever showcases what are undoubtedly the best of Tiptree’s stories.”
SF Site

“One of the first hardbacks I ever bought and still one of my most read.”
Locus

“I can’t recommend this book enough, and we are so lucky to have had Tiptree in our genre.”
