StoryBundle: "Feminist Futures"

This time around it's sci-fi written by women. Comments for three of them:


Happy Snak - Nicole Kimberling - I read this back when it was published by Samhain Publishing, and I'm glad to hear that it survived Samhain's shutdown. A snack shop owner becomes the guardian of a "ghost." I need to reread this sometime.


The Steerswoman - Rosemary Kirstein - I haven't read this, although I've heard good things about it. I already have a copy in my collection (that I still haven't gotten around to reading).


Spots the Space Marine: Defense of the Fiddler - M.C.A. Hogarth - I've read a bunch of Hogarth's works and have enjoyed most of them. The main reason I haven't read this one, although a lot of her fans love it, is because of its unusual format: it looks a lot like a script.


I need to take a closer look at the other ones before I decide whether or not to get the bundle.
