Product Details

Praise

Some of the best contributions, many of them by women, include nuanced examinations of gender-based oppression. In Charlie Jane Anders’s astoundingly good “Don’t Press Charges and I Won’t Sue,” the narrator is forced by the government into a body she doesn’t want and didn’t ask for. Maria Dahvana Headley’s “Memoirs of an Imaginary Country” explores the connection between the colonization of women’s bodies and colonization of non-Western countries. Tananarive Due’s “The Reformatory” reveals a single moment of horrific abuse in a young black boy’s difficult life. Maureen McHugh’s “Cannibal Acts” and Nalo Hopkinson’s “Waving at Trains” are both excellent stories of viral apocalypses and their aftermath.—Publishers Weekly
