Ten stories from Asimov's and Analog magazine- including some giants of feminist speculative fiction.
Some are short stories set in existing worlds, some are stand alone.
The title story (which is more a novella) resonated a lot for me, as did "Rachel in Love" and "Speech Sounds." Most are pretty "heavy" reading: addressing the issues of sexism/racism/humanity (with the exception of "Even the Queen" - which is just silly.)
