Meryl Stenhouse is an author of short-to-medium sized fiction, and a huge fan of the short form. She grew up on a diet of fantasy novels and B-grade science fiction movies, from which she learned many things, such as, 'heroes only like beautiful women' and 'female characters should be cute and womanly and good with children' and 'highly sophisticated future societies still require women to wear impractical, revealing clothes and makeup' so it's no wonder she grew up to be a feminist.

VigilVigil by Angela Slatter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve read quite a bit of urban fantasy and Slatter’s contribution fits right in. Snarky heroine, mythical activity, kick-ass female saves the day. It was nice to read UF set in Australia (Brisbane, no less!) and I was excited to get this book.

The story starts out at a leisurely pace, and continues that way up until about the two-thirds mark, when...

Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
"Three stars: Five stars as a period piece, one as a work of literature.

Mine is the 1979 edition whose preface claims it is still relevant. Perhaps that, too, is an indication of a past phase of feminism, because the story has really not aged very..." Read more of this review »

What a load of ignorant, misogynist claptrap. I want those hours of my life back. There was absolutely nothing to like about this story. It wasn't even well executed.

“When the fabulously rich died – as they still did, no matter what treatments and augmentations they had – most of them opted to be uploaded into a computer somewhere. Some had their own facilities, built just for that purpose, but many chose to join one of the transhuman communities and to live in virtual worlds among their peers. The biggest, most expensive and most powerful of those communities was Omega Point.”
Graham Storrs, The Credulity Nexus

“the pioneers of transhumanity would face difficulties as emotionally challenging as any human has ever faced, as they pried themselves free of their ancient biological heritage.”
