"As Women Fight" Asimov's Dec 09

The December issue of Asimov's is hitting stores and mailboxes as we speak and, along with stories by some very cool authors, is my own humble offering. "As Women Fight" is another gender story (no, I'm not bored with that yet) set in a pretty alien culture.
I can't wait to see how people like it.

I liked it tremendously :) Your story is subtle and intelligent, and unsettling in an exquisite way. Keep it up.

Thanks Vera,

I'm glad you liked the story. I have another story coming out in Asimov's in a few months. "Malick Pan", quite different in its theme but also quite unsettling (I hope).

I'm glad that there are people in Europe reading SF in English. I live in Spain myself.

I am looking forward to it. I already enjoyed your previous one (Shoes To Run).
I think there is a fair number of non-English speakers in Europe who read SF in English, as a lot does not get translated.
I have always enjoyed SF, and write my PhD on LeGuin, so I regard it as my - enjoyable - job to keep myself updated via Asimov's and the like :)
Spain, I am told, is a beautiful country.

A very well done, thought-provoking story. I started trying to understand too much early on, to get ahead of the narrative. This is not that kind of story. The world of the story is never well-explained, but this is a short story, and the trappings of the world are not important. The gender issues explored are fascinating, and for me, the mark of a good story is that it stays with you. This one will stay with me for a long while.
