Edited by Gideon Marcus
Women write science fiction. They always have.
Rediscovery: Science Fiction by Women (1953-1957) offers, quite simply, some of the best science fiction ever written: 20 amazing pieces, most of which haven't been reprinted for decades...but should have been. Whether you are a long-time fan or new to the genre, you are in for a treat.
This collection of works - 18 stories, 1 poem, 1 nonfiction piece - are a showcase, some of the best science fiction stories of the '50s. These stories were selected not only as examples of great writing, but also because their characters are as believable, their themes just as relevant today, their contents just as fun to read, as when they were written almost three quarters of a century ago.
Dig in. Enjoy these newly-rediscovered delicacies a few at a time...or binge them all at once!
