Excellent collection of stories. I particularly liked "Space Episode", "All Cats Are Gray", and "All the Colors of the Rainbow". The latter story, like the Doctor Who episode "Rosa", shows that we don't need to go to other worlds to find monsters...we have them right here on Earth.

This was a solid collection and well worth the read for anyone interested in female or classic SFF. I was hoping for something as phenomenal as Sisters of the Revolution edited by the Vandermeers and it wasn't quite so engaging as that but I enjoyed this.

Some of my favorite stories:

Only a Mother
The Tunnel Ahead
Contagion
In Hiding
Created He Them
