Reviews

"Make no mistake: The quality of the stories here is unassailable." -Kirkus Reviews "Valuable ... educational and enjoyable, a significant retrospective of science fiction's foremothers." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An impressive and super fun-to-read collection that's well worth picking up, and what it will leave you with (other than the notion that the future ain't what it used to be) is the sense that women have always been into sci-fi--and they've been good at it." --Marie Claire "Lisa Yaszek's fascinating and well-researched anthology presents a trove of writers who helped define the genre...what all the stories have in common is sheer readability and a delicious sense of discovery." --Gary K. Wolfe, The Chicago Tribune
