I really liked this! Its a collection of short stories written by female science fiction writers betwen the 40's and 70's. Even though I read a lot of sf and have a strong interest in female writers, several of these were still new to me. Almost all of them were really strong stories, and I enjoyed Pamela Sargent's introduction and notes too.

Why do I not read more short fiction? I usually like it, and yet somehow I forget to look for anthologies. Thanks for recommending this Sarah Pi! ( )
