Product description

Review

"Including stories from the 1970s to the present day, the collection seeks to expand the conversation about feminism while engaging the reader in a wealth of imaginative ideas. From the literary heft of Angela Carter to the searing power of Octavia Butler, Sisters of the Revolution gathers daring examples of speculative fiction's engagement with feminism." --Buzzfeed

"The respected editorial team presents 29 stories of feminist speculative fiction from the 60s to now, by a very impressive roster of writers including Octavia E. Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin, Angela Carter, Nalo Hopkinson, and James Tiptree, Jr." --Locus Online

"Ann and Jeff VanderMeer are responsible for some of the best anthologies of recent years, and in Sisters Of The Revolution they look to have done it again. The book is a comprehensive, genre-spanning collection of horror, fantasy and science-fiction from female authors. --This is Horror

"This book is a must-read for fans of speculative fiction, feminist or not, and would be an exciting text to build a women's studies course around." --World Literature Today

"This 'highly curated' collection of feminist speculative fiction definitely bears the VanderMeer stamp: not only choosing their stories from every genre of the fantastic, including horror and fantasy but offering a greater preponderance of the surreal and the richly grotesque than one might expect in an anthology on this theme." --The New York Review of Science Fiction

"The stories here were written between the 1970s and the present day, with emerging authors such as Nnedi Okorafor side by side with established voices including Angela Carter and Octavia Butler. Highlights include Kelley Eskridge's tale of an actor equally at home playing John the Baptist or Salome, a story of gender fluidity heavy with desire; James Tiptree Jr's 'The Screwfly Solution', a chilling account of society falling apart as men's sexual and violent impulses combine; and Carter's masterful examination of the Lizzie Borden case, a vivid depiction of life in the 19th century, when three women could be owned by one man through marriage, birth or contract. This is a fine anthology." --The Guardian

"I like this book. I like this book a lot: there is not a bad story in the collection, and very few that feel slight or weak." --Strange Horizons
