LIGHTSPEED is an online science fiction and fantasy magazine. In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF—and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales.

This month, we present our special anniversary issue, Women Destroy Science Fiction!, an all-science fiction extravaganza entirely written—and edited!—by women.

Guest-edited by long-time LIGHTSPEED assistant editor Christie Yant, our Women Destroy Science Fiction! Issue contains eleven all-new, original science fiction short stories, plus four short story reprints, a novella reprint, and for the first time ever, an array of fifteen flash fiction stories. In addition to all that goodness, we also have more than two dozen personal essays by women talking about their experiences reading and writing science fiction, plus seven in-depth nonfiction articles.

Here’s what we’ve got lined up for you in this special issue:

Original science fiction by Seanan McGuire, N.K. Jemisin, Charlie Jane Anders, Maria Dahvana Headley, Amal El-Mohtar, Kris Millering, Heather Clitheroe, Rhonda Eikamp, Gabriella Stalker, Elizabeth Porter Birdsall, and K.C. Norton.

Original flash fiction by Carrie Vaughn, Ellen Denham, Samantha Murray, Holly Schofield, Cathy Humble, Emily Fox, Tina Connolly, Effie Seiberg, Marina J. Lostetter, Rhiannon Rasmussen, Sarah Pinsker, Kim Winternheimer, Anaid Perez, Katherine Crighton, and Vanessa Torline.

Reprints by Alice Sheldon (a/k/a James Tiptree, Jr.), Eleanor Arnason, Maria Romasco Moore, Tananarive Due, and a novella reprint by Maureen F. McHugh.

Nonfiction articles by Pat Murphy, Stina Leicht, Tracie Welser, plus a roundtable interview by Mary Robinette Kowal with Ursula K. Le Guin, Pat Cadigan, Ellen Datlow, and Nancy Kress, and a feature interview with comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick by Jennifer Willis. Our cover for this issue is brand-new art from Galen Dara, who also conducted our artist showcase interview this month.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Let the destruction commence! 12. Juni 2014
Von Shannon Barnsley - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I was excited about this project from its earliest days on Kickstarter and just got my copy yesterday. It's so much bigger than I realized. Between the original stories, the flash fictions, the reprints, and the fascinating essays (I mean it! Read them! Even if you're an intro/essay skimmer), this meaty tome will keep readers busy and may just even out the gender ratio on their bookshelf to boot. Women have been writing sci-fi since the very first proto-sci-fi story was penned by seventeen-year-old Frankenstein author Mary Shelley. It's time to recognize those contributions and shake up the space age sausage fest that is modern sci-fi.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If the apocalypse comes, beep me. 5. Juli 2014
Von Kelly Garbato - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This special double issue of LIGHTSPEED magazine is easily one of my all-time favorite science fiction collections – and not just because it was written, edited, and illustrated (etc.) entirely by women (109 women, to be precise, not counting the one thousand ladies+ who submitted stories!). The writing isn’t merely solid, but oftentimes downright spectacular – and at just $3.99, it’s practically a steal.

Many of the short stories are worth the purchase price by their very lonesomes. Off the top of my head, there’s “Like Daughter,” by Tananarive Due (a woman gives birth to a clone of herself in order to right the many wrongs done to her in childhood); Maria Romasco Moore’s “The Great Loneliness” (a post-apocalyptic world populated by painfully lonely human-animal-plant hybrids); and Alice Sheldon’s “Love Is the Plan the Plan Is Death” (in which two spiders fall in love, the captor becoming the prey, the son the absent father). Eleanor Arnason’s “Knapsack Poems: A Goxhat Travel Journal” introduces a complicated and exciting vision of sexuality and gender in multiple bodied beings (the titular Goxhats).

While these are reprints, there’s quite a bit of original fiction to savor as well. Seanan McGuire’s “Each to Each” is a true gem (a mermaid Navy!) – it’s one I can see myself returning to time and again in the future – as are “The Case of the Passionless Bees” (a scifi reimagining of Sherlock Holmes by Rhonda Eikamp) and K.C. Norton’s “Canth” (a perpetual motion submarine powered by the heart of the Captain’s mother seemingly runs away from its owner/daughter). And Amal El-Mohtar’s “The Lonely Sea in the Sky” is heartbreakingly beautiful. Diamonds from the planet Triton “blink” towards one another – a talent humans rapidly learn to exploit for teleportation, spawning the rise of Meisner Syndrome and the Melee Liberation Front (“Friends of Lucy”).

Though I’m not as much as fan of flash fiction, a number of these stories managed to grab my imagination and pull on ye old heartstrings. “The Hymn of the Ordeal” (“How else do you see the stars, but to join the war?”); “The Sewell Home” (an old folk’s home for “timeslingers”); and “Ro-Sham-Bot” (about a faulty chore bot endowed with a “pesky” personality) are all worth a read or two or three.

Along with the reprints, original short stories, and flash fiction, there’s also an excerpt from Jane Lindskold’s recently published novel, ARTEMIS AWAKENING (which I skipped seeing as the ARC is in my to-read pile), as well as author spotlights, nonfiction (including artist galleries and a roundtable talk with Ursula K. Le Guin, Pat Cadigan, Ellen Datlow, and Nancy Kress), and a plethora of personal essays, written for the project’s Kickstarter fundraiser. It wasn’t my plan to read the nonfiction – I’m just not into NF as of late – but much to my surprise, I plowed through it all. The personal essays are a little more hit or miss than the short stories, but overall I was engaged, excited, nodding my head in vociferous agreement.

I jumped at this collection the second I saw Maureen McHugh’s name in the blurb. I’m 99.9% sure that I’ve read everything she’s published – usually in multiple formats – but I can always wish for more, right? As it turns out, hers is a reprint of “The Cost to Be Wise” (which went on to become the opening chapters of MISSION CHILD, a book I cannot recommend highly enough), leaving me bummed but not surprised. (I still read it anyway, for the cagillionth time!) I was however both shocked and delighted to find an interview of McHugh (by Jude Griffin) in the Author Spotlight section – and she hopes to start a new novel soon. (Yay!) So it wasn’t a total wash on the McHugh front.

5/5 stars. Most of the stories found here are amazing and stand on their own. There are very few “duds” to be found, and even these fall in the 3- to 4-star range. (It’s relative, yo.) 490 pages of grade-A, woman-made science fiction for just $3.99 – what are you waiting for? You need this magazine!

(No, I don’t work for LIGHTSPEED. I’m just crazy excited about this project, okay! Destroy ALL the genres!)

5.0 von 5 Sternen So good I rant about it 3. Juli 2014
Von Susan Jane - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Wow o Wow! This is a big chunk of science fiction. That it all women authors is even better. Everything from all slices of the science fiction universe: hardware, speculative science, space ships, aliens, the bad guys, the good guys, tons of we have no idea, cultural conflict, psychological nightmares, language problems, and a few explosions for good measure. And it's all beautifully put together without heavy editing or limitations. More people need to find this book and be so delighted that they buy some for gifts and a few anonymous "SO THERE!" Saying women can't write science fiction is the same thing as saying we are "only" good enough to pop out babies. If you can't deal with it go back to your cave and your palieo diet, and leave the world to those who are writing the real future.
