Strange Horizons Reviews, May 30-June 3
In honor of Carol Emshwiller's recent 90th birthday, this week's Strange Horizons issue is dedicated to Emshwiller's work. The reviews department kicks off the focus week with L. Timmel Duchamp's review of the recent Collected Stories of Carol Emshwiller, Volume 1, in which she charts the development of Emshwiller's voice and prevailing themes through her short fiction. Paul Kincaid reviews Emshwiller's first novel, Carmen Dog, a work of feminist SF, and Maureen Kincaid Speller reviews the novels Ledoyt and Leaping Man Hill, Emshwiller's forays into the Western genre.
