The other stories are shorter but equally clever, especially the one about "alternative universes", a prescient tale that seems to be based on the "many worlds theory" of quantum mechanics ! A very profound and intriguing idea
The only story I didn't much like was the very short "Oh where, oh where is Peggy McRafferty ? " which wasn't science fiction and didn't seem to belong in this collection. But don't let that put you off - it's a tiny niggle, and all the other stories are brilliant
If you like Wyndham's novels, you will certainly enjoy this clever and thought-provoking collection
For instance,Oh, Where, Now, is Peggy Macrafferty? about a fresh young girl from the Irish bogs who is schooled to become a film star.This is not science fiction at all,more wicked social comment,but I love it!
The title story, Consider Her Ways,is a thought-provoking tale set in a future where all men have been wiped out by a plague,and women have learned to do without them,even adapting their reproductive processes by basing them on those of insects.
The other stories have to do with various types of time travel,and are very good,then the last is another funny one. Here is John Wyndham as you may never have seen him before,but I urge you to try,and,if you like this book,read The Seeds of Time and Jizzle as well.
