the anthology easily demonstrates the massive range possible in the rather loose definitions of ‘speculative fiction’. Here we have poor women benefiting from a lucky find only to lose it when they make a mistake in all the best traditions of fairy tales translated to the modern day, pulpy SF adventures of manual labourers in space and the concerns of a young teenager in the future discovering his growing homosexuality in the face of being separated from his love by his parents’ relocation to a coveted off-world base.
