WOMEN OF WONDER

Penguin SF paperback, 1978. Cover illustration by Candy Amsden.

"'Women are writing many of the things male sf writers thought could never be written; they are making us examine tenets and shibboleths we thought were immutable. The mightily thewed warrior trip is one of these. People like Ursula Le Guin, Joanna Russ, Kate Wilhelm...are making that seem hideously ridiculous' 
-Harlan Ellison. 
In Women of Wonder, Pamela Sargent has assembled a collection of amazing stories which show that some of the most exciting and innovating writing in science fiction is being produced by women."
