Less a collection of science fiction royalty (although Ursula K Le Guin is included), more a multicultural snapshot of great speculative fiction stories written by women. A must for anyone who likes challenging fiction! (sweet pea)

Why this novel isn't in the pantheon of classics confounds me. Brilliant. Illuminating. Inspirational in parts, disheartening in others. An interesting slice of Harlem in the 1940s. (sweet pea)

Horrifying...ly awesome! While there are some specimens intentionally humorous, most were just done by people who had no clue what they were doing. Sick fun. (sweet pea)

This novel is a slow simmer that comes to a furious boil for the last quarter. A unique, and freaky, take on the crime novel. Beukes is one of my favorite authors. She leaves me breathless and wanting more. Plus, such great characters! (sweet pea)
