Top customer reviews
Unless you're very widely and deeply read in sci fi, many if not most of these short stories are going to be new to you - and the notes on the pen names will have you going "I've heard of that author! And that one, and that one, and yes, that one too, but I never found anything by them by the time I started looking..." And in the opening, you'll learn why you couldn't find them - and more thoughtful, incisive history of the field from one of its top editors.
Even if you're coming for the McCaffrey and the Bujold stories, you're going to enjoy the rest of the book, and walk away both entertained and wiser. What's not to like?
If you are new to SF, or worse, have bought the info the lie that the genre colonizers have spread, that SF was a boy's club, the stories in this book are not only entertaining but should prove eye-opening.
