Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Popular male writers provide engaging new tales in this anthology and successfully do so from a female perspective. The concept is intriguing, but obviously gimmicky too. The tales are well written entries that cross (no pun intended the gamut of sub-genre lines. Each one provides a first person account starring a female protagonist (in some cases antagonist might be a more apropos term). However, the fun in this nineteen tale anthology is not the gender switching, but in observing how males see females. Mike Resnick summarizes the tales best in his introduction to this collection when he quotes from his novel Outpost: ¿What¿s the most dangerous race you ever came across? Women! I mean an alien race. So do I.¿ Readers will have a fine time seeing favorite writers switch from pants to skirts in an entertaining compilation. Harriet Klausner
