The Mammoth Book of SF Stories by Women
This anthology showcases the most exceptional science fiction stories written by women in recent decades, from classic stars like Ursula K. Le Guin and James Tiptree Jr. to science-fiction greats such Nancy Kress, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Karen Joy Fowler to new award-winning talents.
"Alex Dally MacFarland should be commended for putting together such a diversity of voices in one anthology. Amongst its pages you can find winners and nominees for Hugo, Tiptree, World Fantasy, and Nebula Awards, from established print magazines (Asimov's and F&SF), to online outlets (Clarkesworld makes a good showing, as does Tor.com) and stand-alone anthologies...There will be stories for most palates here, much to think about and argue with. An excellent showcase, subverting paradigms as well as expectations.
