      I was born in Bloomington, Indiana I was due on Valentine s Day but arrived a week early my mother blamed this on a really exciting IU basketball game My father was a psychologist at the University, but not that kind of psychologist He studied animal behavior, and especially learning He ran rats through mazes My mother was a polio survivor, a schoolteacher, and a pioneer in the co operative nursery school movement Along with basketball, my family loved books The day I got my first library card there was a special dinner to celebrate And before I could read myself, I remember my father reading The Iliad to me, although really he was reading it to my older brother, I just got to be there A shocking book And I remember Mary Poppins and Winnie the Pooh in my father s voice and a bunch of other things that weren t movies yet My parents strongly disapproved of the Disney version of things Pooh believed in a spoonful of honey, but Mary Poppins did not.I have great memories of Bloomington Our block was packed with kids and we played enormous games that covered whole blocks of territory, with ten kids to a side One of my childhood friends was Theodore Deppe, who s now an outstanding poet I planned to grow up to be a dog trainer myself.Both my parents were raised in southern California and so regarded our time in Indiana as an exile When I was 11 years old my father was offered a job with Encyclopedia Britannica that necessitated our moving to Palo Alto, California My parents were thrilled to be coming back My older brother, for reasons that escape me, was equally pleased I was devastated.Palo Alto was much sophisticated than Bloomington At recess in Bloomington we played baseball, skipped rope, played jacks or marbles depending on the season In Palo Alto girls my age were already setting their hair, listening to the radio, talking about boys I considered it a sad trade The best thing about the sixth grade was that my teacher, Miss Sarzin, read The Hobbit to us.After reading many books, I graduated from Palo Alto High in 1968 and went to Berkeley I was a political science major and an antiwar activist I was in Berkeley during People s Park, when the city was occupied and there were tanks on the street corners, and I was there during the Jackson State Kent State killings I met my husband there He d been part of the free speech movement that was my idea of glamor We got married the year I graduated and we came to graduate school at UC Davis together.As an undergraduate I had a special interest in India and Gandhi, and a general interest in imperialism I find the intersection of cultures fascinating, the misunderstandings that occur, the mistakes that are innocently made I m not so fascinated by the mistakes that aren t innocent, although there are a good many of the latter kind As a graduate student I focused on China and Japan It s not clear to me what my career goals were whatever, I had my first child during spring break of the last year of my masters Six days less than two years later I had a second child My husband and I still live in Davis, although the kids have left for college and beyond.I decided to try to be a writer on my 30th birthday.All questions answered

    1. I wrote my senior thesis for the KU Women's Studies department on James Tiptree, and I had been wanting the anthologies ever since. I mean, the titles alone would have sold me. :)In this anthology, you'll find short stories, critical essays, even letters from Alice Sheldon (James Tiptree) herself. If you don't know who James Tiptree is, go now and Wiki it. I'll wait.Fascinating stuff. So much in the Tiptree stories turns gender on its head. They're exciting, bright, well-crafted stories, and wel [...]


    2. From the cover blurb: "The James Tiptree Award Anthology 1 features stories and essays chosen by judges for the Tiptree Award. Thought-provoking, imaginative, and infuriating — fiction that may change your view of the world."Right on.Reading this amplified my growing readerly infatuation with works by Geoff Ryman (Air, "K is for Kosovo (or, Massimo’s Career)" and, in this anthology, "Birth Days") and Carol Emshwiller (The Mount, "Abomination," and, in this collection, "Boys"). Swoon!And it m [...]


    3. This anthology brings together short fiction that was nominated for, and some that won, the James Tiptree Award for "science fiction or fantasy that expands or explores our understanding of gender". As well as that, there are a number of essays both relating to the award itself and the wider genre. There were a number of stories here that I enjoyed a lot, and some less so.Looking Through Lace, byRuth Nestvold, was probably my favourite story in the collection. This is about a young xenolinguist [...]


    4. This one is by far the best of the first three.The stories that I really liked were Dearth, a parable about finding and choosing family and throwing "oddness" out the window, (I had read it before somewehere), Liking What You See, a mix of Kurt Vonnegut and a journalism student, dove deeply into ability, dis/Ability and assumptions made about both, capitalism, lookism and science (and I am still unpacking it)and The Glass Bottle Trick, a great mix of deep culture where the introduction to the cu [...]


    5. The stories in this book varied wildly in quality, from "that was an hour of my life I'll never get back" ("Birth Days" by Geoff Ryman - they had to put it first and scare off a lot of potential readers with this all-agenda, minimal-plot, unrealistic/unlikable characters and graphic unrealistic plot devices) to the amazing Snow Queen trio (the original by Hans Christian Andersen and two beautiful and creative versions by Kara Dalkey and Kelly Link). Most of the stories were pretty good, but they [...]


    6. A somewhat random collection of past Tiptree Award winners, most of these stories were at least somewhat interesting. One bored me to tears; one, Ruth Nestvold's "Looking Through Lace," absolutely blew me away; and one contained assbabies. Like, seriously, hardcore assbabies, gestated IN THE ASS. Geoff Ryman looks at fandom and goes, "Beat that, punks!"Anyway, this was mostly a really interesting and worthwhile collection. I hope I can get my hands on the next two volumes.


    7. Anthologies always have some pieces I like better than others, including some I could easily have done without altogether; so my rating is necessarily an average. In fact, it was worth reading the entire book just to happen on the novella Looking Through Lace by Ruth Nestvold. This book also mixes fiction with non-fiction, articles about the Tiptree Award itself or by award winners. I found them moderately interesting.


    8. This is an odd assortment of stories, some better than others. I liked the one about the lace and the linguist. I skipped the book excerpt (I'd already read the book, and hate book excerpts - if I want to read the book, I want the whole book) There is a Snow Queen trilogy of stories 2 out of 3 that I liked. I might read the other anthologies in the series in hopes that some of the stories are good.


    9. I picked this up to read "The Snow Queen" and related stories in order to get a background for the Joan Vinge's Hugo winner. There were a number of other interesting authors, essays, and stories here, so I ended up reading the whole thing. Like many collections, it's a mixed bag, but generally a very strong collection of sci-fi stories about gender and sexuality.


    10. I'm skipping around in this. Reading the short stories. The "Set this house in order" excerpt was cool - especially since I like "United States of Tara" so much."Looking thru Lace" resonated a lot. Still thinking about it several weeks later.


    11. Fine anthology of fiction and critical essays exploring gender issues in speculative fiction. S.F. anthologies can be pretty hit-or-miss, but this one is well thought out and showcases some strong writers.
