Issues concerning gender, such as change, role reversal and misalignment thereof, are recurrent themes in Stine's work. Her novel "Season of the Witch" describes the ordeal of a man, a hardened seducer who lives off women, whose consciousness is transferred into the body of a woman as a legal punishment. Her short story "Jinni's So Long at the Fair" concerns a future in which a plague has wiped out all humans but those with a genetic abnormality, with male genes (karyotype XY) but female physiology (breasts, vagina). Another short story, "Herstory", describes deliberate manipulation of the timeline to change history so that every human religion in history has stressed the supremacy of woman over man.
Anthologies she has edited include The Great Women Detectives: Seven Classic Novelettes, Hearts of the West, Reel Futures: Classic Stories that Became Great SF Movies (with Forest J Ackerman), and Those Doggone Dogs.
During the late 1960s she worked as a personal assistant to Star Trek creator,Gene Roddenberry, on special projects.
