Daughters reviewed

Remember the anthology I published a couple of months ago? Daughters of Earth?

Well, at long last, it’s been reviewed and the review’s a lovely one.

Here’s what Nancy Jane Moore at sfrevu has to say about Daughters:

    In Daughters of Earth, eleven feminist science fiction scholars look at eleven feminist science fiction stories. Given that the field of science fiction scholarship is a small one, it is a joy to find eleven very good feminist scholars among them. Combining the microcosm of each story with the macrocosm of the Twentieth Century, these scholars provide us with a depth of experience we can’t get just reading the stories themselves.

A ridiculous amount of work (tracking down copyright holders, arguing with agents, wrangling stories out of the essayists and etc.) went into Daughters and I’m crazy proud of the end result: from the gorgeous cover by Cat Sparks to the awesome essays. If you’re at all interested in science fiction you should really check it out.

    Hey, Justine, so when is the chapbook with the 1940s story and essay coming out?

    I have so many books to read, I was trying not to look too hard at DOE. Now, dammit, I have to get it. *clicks tongue with annoyance*

    Just got a copy for review purposes – watch out for it in SFSite – but right now I”m trying to finish the last couple of chapters of the #2 book in teh YA series, so everything else has taken a secondary importance – I will be reading this book next, though! And I look forward to it!
