Did not get past the first three stories. Found the perspective to be weak. Knowing the women were writing intending to pass it off as a man's point of view weaked my tolerance for the comments thrown in to make it appear a man's perspective -- thoughts on sex etc. Had it just been a gathering of stories and not an attempt to write in another's frame of reference these stories might have gone over better for me.

In the early days of Science Fiction, it was considered to be a strictly male field. Women that wrote in the genre used men's names, such as Andre (Alice) Norton.

The stories in this book were written as a challenge to modern woman SF writers, to write as men, with make protagonists. It turned out very well, with 16 excellent stories.
