Feminist Science Fiction Recommendation   Leave a comment

Okay, so it’s not exactly a book review. Nonetheless, read this and pass it on! “ILU-486” is brilliant near-future short SF by Amanda Ching, sprung from spectre of VA’s medical rape legislation.

Somebody’s called it “The Handmaid’s Tail 2012,” and the description is apt. It’s the best kind of near-future science fiction: radical enough to fascinate us and believable enough to scare us.

It’s short. It’s free. So if you like it, tell the writer. Even better, tell somebody else.
