Ten Thousand Light-Years From Home by James Tiptree Jr.
'Unquestionably one of the brightest-burning talents in the constellation of science fiction' The New York Times
Written under the pseudonym James Tiptree Jr., the pioneering and outlandish tales of Alice B. Sheldon are some of the greatest science fiction short stories of the twentieth century, telling of dystopian chases, alien sex and the loneliness of the universe.
'What her work brought to the genre was a blend of lyricism and inventiveness, as if some poet had rewritten a number of clever SF standards and then passed them on to a psychoanalyst' Brian Aldiss
'Feminist dystopian fiction owes just as much to this woman - who wrote as a man - as Margaret Atwood' Vox
