Memories of the Body

by Lisa Tuttle
 

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This short story collection, which defies genre categories with its innovative blend of science fiction and the supernatural, explores the myriad ways in which love can go wrong. In ``Riding the Nightmare,'' Tess discovers that her ability to dispose of rivals through her dreams has been inherited by her daughter, who views her as a rival. When the Jamie of ``Jamie's Grave'' grows older and less dependent, his mother finds something else that needs her nurturing. ``The Wound'' and ``Lizard Lust'' put a new spin on the age-old battle between the sexes by showing lovers able to cross fluid gender lines. ``A Mother's Heart'' profiles a decidedly different kind of maternal love. The title story reveals a wealthy man's chillingly high-tech revenge on his ex-wife. On a different tack, ``The Spirit Cabinet'' takes its protagonist back into the past to visit a Victorian seance, while ``Dead Television'' considers an electronic future for those who have passed over. A skilled wordsmith, Tuttle ( Gabriel ) provides 15 tales that are both entertaining and thought-provoking. ( July )
