A new collection from a trailblazing writer of science fiction. Part of Belt's Revival Series and with an introduction by Brad Ricca.

Science fiction has historically been seen as a man's game, but from the very beginning, women have made their indelible mark on the genre. Alongside sci-fi pioneers like Mary Shelley and C. L. Moore, we should now add Clare Winger Harris, whose pulp stories in the early twentieth century paved the way for modern woman sci-fi writers such as Ursula K. Le Guin and Margaret Atwood.

In Harris's world, you'll find gigantic insects, martians looking to steal Earth's water, and time travel to ancient Rome. Scholar Brad Ricca assembles ten of Harris's greatest short stories here, including "The Fifth Dimension," "The Fate of the Poseidonia," "The Menace of Mars," and "The Vibrometer." Their ideas are as fresh today as when Harris originally wrote them a century ago.

A wonderful collection by a little-known master of science fiction, this book will hold interest for feminist readers and scholars of sci-fi alike.
