You will be subverted—and you will like it.
In these provocative tales intersecting sexuality and identity, a third-world fashionista masters the Internet, an itinerant poet collaborates with its eight selves, a four-way marriage flouts social conventions, and an ugly duckling is reinvented as a compromised swan.
The James Tiptree, Jr., Award is an annual literary prize for speculative fiction that explores and expands gender. The Tiptree Award is named for one of science fiction’s most brilliant writers, Alice B. Sheldon. Sheldon, an ex-debutante turned CIA operative, wrote for ten years as the enigmatic James Tiptree, Jr., until her true identity was uncovered.
