This anthology is focused on sex and science fiction, and not necessarily from a feminist perspective. Most of the stories, in fact, say either nothing, or nothing good, about human gender relations. And in fact, from the ratio of male to female writers one might be forgiven for thinking this was a book about gay male sex and science fiction. (It's not.) Oh well. Especially good stories were Sturgeon's "The World Well Lost" and ALdiss' "Lambeth Blossom". I also enjoyed Yep's "Looking-Glass Sea", Yarbro's "False Dawn", Boucher's "Khartoum: A Prose Limerick", and Leibscher's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Love?" -- lq, 7/4/00
