The James Tiptree Award is as good as the milk and cookies used to fund it. The stories in the anthology take the familiar themes of identity and sexuality and serve them spiked with humor and wit. Whether you prefer your literary palate filled by a provincial Anna Wintour, an itinerate octo-bodied poet, or a transistorized Cinderella, this latest edition has enough substance to satisfy any gender (or mix thereof).

From official release/information:

Book Description: Returning again to the fertile ground of sex and identity, this third entry in a successful and controversial anthology series continues to celebrate thought-provoking and provocative fiction that explores and expands gender. Through their subversive, engaging stories, Tiptree Award–winning authors offer fascinating speculations on the ever-increasing mutability of our public—and private—selves. James Tiptree, Jr. was the pseudonym of Alice Bradley Sheldon, whose lasting contributions to the gender-bending genre are honored with this annual award, now in its 15th year. Previous winners of the Tiptree Award include Karen Joy Fowler, Ursula K. Le Guin, M. John Harrison, Kelly Link, Joe Haldeman, and Joanna Russ.
