Warm Worlds and Otherwise
A wildly imaginative short story collection from one of the greatest female science fiction writers ever
Daring, energetic, and struck through with linguistic inventiveness, Warm Worlds and Otherwise is one of the most influential short story collections in all of science fiction, and one of the principle achievements of James Tiptree Jr – the pen name of Alice Bradley Sheldon.
Demonstrating Tiptree’s eye for unnerving future dystopias and her unparalleled depiction of strange worlds and mysterious creatures, Warm Worlds and Otherwise also traces a movement toward ground-breaking explorations of sexuality, gender and race. Included in this collection are the Hugo and Nebula award-winning ‘The Girl Who was Plugged In’ and ‘Love Is the Plan the Plan Is Death’, as well as the extraordinary ‘The Women Men Can’t See’.
