The James Tiptree Award Anthology 3
by Karen Joy Fowler, Pat Murphy, Debbie Notkin, and Jeffrey D. Smith, eds.
Available Format(s): Trade Paperback
In this provocative third volume, award-winning tales explore, expand, and intersect biology, sexuality, identity, and more. Here you’ll find a third-world fashionista who masters the internet, an itinerant poet that collaborates with its eight selves, a four-way marriage flouting social conventions, and an ugly duckling reinvented as a compromised swan.
The Otherwise Award, formerly the James Tiptree, Jr., Award, is an annual literary prize for speculative fiction that explores and expands gender. “Otherwise” is described on the award’s website as: “finding different directions to move in—toward newly possible places, by means of emergent and multiple pathways and methods. It is a moving target, since to imagine otherwise is to divert from the ways of a norm that is itself always changing.”
