Kit Reed has been delighting and terrifying readers for over thirty years with her darkly comic speculative fiction. This collection of short stories, drawn from a lifetime's work, shows Reed at the top of her form. First published in venues ranging from The Missouri Review to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and The Norton Anthology of Contemporary Fiction, these twenty stories deal with women's lives and feminist issues from the kitchen sink and pink dishmop era through the warlike years of the women's movement to the uneasy accommodation of the present.

She is the SF writer par excellence of the war between the generations . . . Kit Reed frees us as we read her. John Clute, Science Fiction Weekly"
Full of humor, pathos, understanding, and an insidious horror which makes laughter as wild as a scream, and makes terror an hilarious release. Worlds Ahead"
