Product Description

Review

"Stereotype-busting stories and gender-bending romances...immense, surprising and utterly delightful." -SciFi.com "A dozen award-winning and short-listed pieces probe the boundaries of sexual identity in today's world and in imaginatively rendered futures. Nalo Hopkinson recounts the macabre fate of a superstitious man's third wife, who mistakenly becomes pregnant. Ursula Le Guin fashions a world in which marriage involves four bisexual partners and predictably complex interrelations. In honor of its namesake, the volume includes Tiptree's brilliant 'The Girl Who Was Plugged In,' envisioning a future in which advertising is illegal, and remotely manipulated starlets push products using their celebrity alone. While some selections focus more on racial concerns than gender issues, the resulting collection is both entertaining and thought-provoking." --Booklist "The James Tiptree Award Anthology 3 is absolutely recommended for everyone who is interested in a wide range of fantastic fiction with a taste for the experimental." --SF Site, featured review "And lo and behold, it is quite brilliant." --Strange Horizons "I had so much fun escaping into the short stories in this collection of SF... As I read this book, it seemed as though the stories just got better and better." --BookLoons "This is science fiction, speculative fiction, weird fiction, and fiction that will take you places you thought you were not meant to go." --The Agony Column "Whether you prefer your literary palate filled by a provincial Anna Wintour, an itinerate octo-bodied poet, or a transistorized Cinderella, this latest edition has enough substance to satisfy any gender (or mix thereof)." --SF Revu "A dozen award-winning and short-listed pieces probe the boundaries of sexual identity in today's world and in imaginatively rendered futures." --Booklist "...go[es] beyond whatever imagined boundaries may be placed around 'feminist science fiction'..." --New York Review of Science Fiction

An excellent study in science-fiction. 24 Jan. 2008
By B. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a sci-fi class I was taking and was very impressed. The stories selected are each unique in their own way and make a statement not only about science fiction, but about gender and women's issues.
