I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

According to the introduction, in all of these stories, the pivotal moments revolve around what the characters know. And nothing is more frightening to the world than a woman who knows things. We all know that knowledge is power, but knowledge is also a very versatile and broad concept, which means that the stories in this anthology were also very versatile.

Overall, I have to say that most of the stories were a solid 3-4 stars

Broad Knowledge is an anthology of short stories from the Upper Rubber Boot "Women Up To No Good" collection, edited by Joanne Merriam. It contains 35 speculative fiction stories with female protagonists who get into or out of trouble because of their esoteric, scientific or other knowledge.

As with most short story collections, I enjoyed some contributions a lot more than others. There was an excellent one about a sex robot engineering a better life for herself, an atmospheric one about a group

I did not slip; that's five stars. And yes, this means this anthology has hit my "I don't care if you don't usually check out the genre, I really think you should check out this book" threshhold. This latest entry in the series is fantastic; dark, weird, hopeful, and funny by turns. Highly, highly recommended.

I really liked this short story collection. I have been reading these in reverse order and this one is much stronger than the third. Several of these stories will be staying with me for quite a while.

I was drawn to this compilation because I greatly enjoy the writing of Minghao Xu. After reading her previous short story, "Mr. Kim" I was excited to read her next offering. The author did not disappoint with her present story, "Think, Baby Turtle," and again I was immersed in a story that made me invested in the characters and the outcome of their lives. The depth of feeling evoked by the author's character development is what keeps me wanting to read more from her.
