Colleen Mondor pointed me to an excellent column by Adrienne Martini in the current issue of Bookslut called "Science Fiction, Bake Sales, and the Feminist Cabal." It looks at the Tiptree Award itself, the two Tiptree Award anthologies and even gets into some biography of James Tiptree, Jr./Alice Sheldon. Definitely worth a look, whether you already know what all this fuss is about or not. Simply put: It’s the best award! The best!
(And Colleen’s own review column looks at some YA fantasies on the heels of Harry Potter this time around.)
