MORE WOMEN OF WONDER: Science Fiction Novelettes by Women about Women

Seven sf stories--here classily called novelettes--prefaced by a leaden introduction. There are two oldies: one of C. L. Moore's lush sword-and-sorcery Jirel of Joiry stories and Leigh Brackett's florid but magical ""Lake of the Gone Forever."" The rest are contemporary, including Ursula K. LeGuin's celebrated brief portrait of an aged woman revolutionary; Kate Wilhelm's terrifying story of a young girl in an authoritarian school in a sexually regimented future society; Josephine Saxton's sad, funny split-time narrative of two very different loves involving New York City and two British women. A fine companion to Sargent's Women of Wonder (1975).
