"Sisters of the Revolution gathers a highly curated selection of feminist speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, horror, and more) chosen by one of the most respected editorial teams in speculative literature today, the award-winning Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. Including stories from the 1970s to the present day, the collection seeks to expand the conversation about feminism while engaging the reader in a wealth of imaginative ideas. From the literary heft of Angela Carter to the searing power of Octavia Butler, Sisters of the Revolution gathers daring examples of speculative fiction's engagement with feminism. Dark, satirical stories such as Eileen Gunn's "Stable Strategies for Middle Management" and the disturbing horror of James Tiptree Jr.'s "The Screwfly Solution" reveal the charged intensity at work in the field. Including new, emerging voices like Nnedi Okorafor and featuring international contributions from Angelica Gorodischer and many more, Sisters of the Revolution seeks to expand the ideas of both contemporary fiction and feminism to new fronts. Moving from the fantastic to the futuristic, the subtle to the surreal, these stories will provoke thoughts and emotions about feminism like no other book available today." -- Publisher's description.

An excellent variety of stories from new writers and seasoned veterans. It's also an excellent place to start if you're looking to diversify your sci-fi or find new women authors to adore.

If you enjoy science fiction, fantasy, dystopian fiction, or just good storytelling, pick up Sisters of the Revolution. It’s a solid anthology of stories written by women authors from around the world. The selections run the gamut from humor to horror, and each one is a gem.

Sisters of the Revolution includes renowned writers such as Ursula K. Le Guin, James Tiptree, Jr., and Octavia E. Butler. I found new favorites such as Vandana Singh, Carol Emshwiller and Susan Palwick. You’ll have a difficult time picking a favorite!
