Quotes

  • “The reigning king of the anthology world.”

    - Barnes&Noble.com, praise for John Joseph Adams
  • “It’s more than just an extra-large and particularly great issue of an already good magazine. It’s a master class on all the ways in which women are writing—and have written—some of the best science fiction available…In destroying it, women are creating a larger space for themselves within science fiction, one filled with their voices, dreams, experiences and realities.”

    - NPR
  • “This collection grew out of a special project of Lightspeed magazine that drew submissions from more than a thousand women. The audio edition is composed of fictional stories written for the project or selected for reprint. This impressive group of professional narrators has styles as diverse as the stories. Most present more than one story; a number of them combine to form the casts for two pieces. The narrators are well matched to their stories—whether they tell the tale of a sculptor in a spaceship, a genetically modified soldier, a futuristic burglar, or some other character in a unique world and situation.”
