It is about the pure color of time. This color is real— it is said that the magnetic sense possessed by many animals and by humans as well, the sense which supposedly transcends time and space, is able to function only in the blue ...

The Instrumentality of Women

You can read stories about women in love, women's problems, or women's issues. Or you can read stories about the future of women... Fourteen sci fi and fantasy stories all about women by FEMALE SCIENCE FICTION WRITER author Amy Sterling Casil. This collection contains the Nebula Award-nominated story "To Kiss the Star." In the Nebula Award-nominated "To Kiss the Star," gravely disabled Mel Armstrong gets the chance to explore the stars, but doesn't want to leave the man she loves behind. In "The Renascence of Memory," nanotechnology returns 80 year old Alzheimers patient Carol Meyers to her former youth and beauty -- but everyone she knew and loved is dead, except her former young lover -- he is now too old for her. Famous female film director Helene Bacon will be the first woman to win an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award -- but she's dying of cancer and her daughter is the best donor. How will she choose? The Lady, the only daughter of the last great ruler of Copan, wishes to be a man, so she can save her father and her city. Dr. Vi Elliott believes she's discovered Early Man in the Southern California Desert -- maybe she has, and maybe she has not -- but she does run across a couple of mint-addicted intergalactic eBay traders in this sequel to "Mad for the Mints." And lawyer Lori Johnston is happily married to insurance guy Jack -- until he tells her he's committed to gender reassignment to save his job. What Jack doesn't know is that Lori appears and is female, but her biology is male: born with Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. "Amy writes like Ray Bradbury on real sci-fi ..." Tom Easton, Analog Magazine "'To Kiss the Star' was up for the Nebula Award, but didn't win. I haven't read the work that did win yet, but, again, it must have been absolutely unbelievably fabulous to beat out "To Kiss the Star." This is a beautiful, poignant, moving story of a soaring mind trapped in a damaged body. Read it." - Hugo, Campbell and Nebula award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer, author of Flashforward and other bestsellers
