This book gets almost a solid 'WTF?'
I thought 3 stories good, and a few ok, the rest pretty much gave me a headache from my eyes being crinkled at the WTF'ness of them. ( )

I can see why this was for sale second-hand. Most of the stories are dull, some not even remotely science-fiction. I would have felt aggrieved if I'd payed full price for this.

“Girl Hours” by Sofia Samatar - dreadful, amateurish
“Excerpt from a Letter by a Social-realist Aswang” by Kristin Mandigma - poor
“Somadeva: A Sky River Sutra” by Vandana Singh - dull, didn't finish
“The Queen of Erewhon” by Lucy Sussex - dull
“Tomorrow Is Saint Valentine’s Day” by Tori Truslow - dull
“Spider the Artist” by Nnedi Okorafor - ok
“The Science of Herself” by Karen Joy Fowler - dull
“The Other Graces” by Alice Sola Kim - quite good but would have worked just as well without the "science-fiction" element.
“Boojum” by Elizabeth Bear & Sarah Monette - already read, excellent
“The Eleven Holy Numbers of the Mechanical Soul” by Natalia Theodoridou - dull
“Mountain Ways” by Ursula K. Le Guin - already read, dull
“Tan-Tan and Dry Bone” by Nalo Hopkinson - already read, ok
“The Four Generations of Chang E” by Zen Cho - dull
“Stay Thy Flight” by Élisabeth Vonarburg - don't care for her work so didn't read
“Astrophilia” by Carrie Vaughn - ok
“Invisible Planets” by Hao Jingfang - dull, didn't finish
“On the Leitmotif of the Trickster Constellation in Northern Hemispheric Star Charts, Post-Apocalypse” by Nicole Kornher-Stace - ok
“Valentines” by Shira Lipkin - excellent
“Dancing in the Shadow of the Once” by Rochita Loenen-Ruiz
“Ej-Es” by Nancy Kress - already read, ok
“The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees” by E. Lily Yu - already read, dull
“The Death of Sugar Daddy” by Toiya Kristen Finley
“Enyo-Enyo” by Kameron Hurley
“Semiramis” by Genevieve Valentine
“Immersion” by Aliette de Bodard - already read, excellent
“Down the Wall” by Greer Gilman - already read, dull
“Sing” by Karin Tidbeck - ok
“Good Boy” by Nisi Shawl - dull, didn't finish
“The Second Card of the Major Arcana” by Thoraiya Dyer
“A Short Encyclopedia of Lunar Seas” by Ekaterina Sedia
“Vector” by Benjanun Sriduangkaew
“Concerning the Unchecked Growth of Cities” by Angélica Gorodischer
The Radiant Car Thy Sparrows Drew” by Catherynne M. Valente ( )
