Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This annual female-centric science fiction anthology series seems to have hit its stride and found both figurative and literal balance: nine of the 19 stories were written by men, an unintentional result of James's blinded selection process. That same process has garnered a few standouts, no obvious clunkers, and enough variety to balance the recurring theme of motherhood (by turns realized, defied, defined, and denied). Joel Richard's "Heart of Stone" is a clever update on a well-known Greek myth. Aimee C. Amodio's "Tourist Trap" is gently romantic yet heart-wrenching. William Highsmith's "Mater Luna" bounces between the near and far futures to reveal humanity's tragic last moments. Swapna Kishore's introspective "What Lies Dormant" looks at an India of the future, while Susanne Martin's "Katyusha's First Time Out" is set in a Russia ruined by global climate changes. The overall vibe is thought-provoking without being preachy, and easily accessible for even casual, apolitical readers. (Aug.)
Library Journal
From Gwendolyn Clare's dystopian vision of a world run by women because male births are dwindling ("Driving X") to Douglas Smith's tale of a bizarre unfolding in a secret government test lab ("A Bird in the Hand"), the 19 stories in this annual anthology highlight women protagonists in tales that blend hard science with issues of human ethics, political intrigue, and interpersonal drama. VERDICT Including original tales by Bruce Golden, Jennifer R. Povey, and other contemporary short story authors, this volume offers solid appeal for fans of female-oriented sf.
