I own a copy

"Currently reading" in the sense that I started it but may never finish it...

The writing is adequate. Or, at least, more so than anything a hack like Anderson or B. Herbert could put together, but the stories I've read so far have left me pretty cold.

I think that, not having a vagina, I also lack the, um... strings that a lot of this was supposed to pull on. The pushing of Chomskian linguistic and feminist POVs get a bit wearing after a while, too.

The last story is supposed to have been award-worthy, so I plan to read it, eventually, if nothing else of the thing.
