Review quote

"A superior array of creative and thoughtful writing for both genders." --Booklist "The James Tiptree Award Anthology 1 will come as a surprise to those who think the award is given to stories which only celebrate the role of women and advocate its expansion. Instead the stories explore all varieties of gender in thoughtful and provocative ways. Focusing mostly on a single year, The James Tiptree Award Anthology 1 leaves plenty of room for additional volumes, which deserve to grace the shelves of all science-fiction and gender-studies fans." --SF Site "Really worth the ducats...important in the speculative fiction field."
