Report to the Men's Club and Other Stories

Carol Emshwiller, Author Small Beer Press $16 (282p) ISBN 978-1-931520-02-7

Carol Emshwiller (Carmen Dog, etc.) lends her elegant wit to Report to the Men's Club, a collection of 19 fantastic short fictions treating the war between the sexes. Such tales as ""Grandma,"" ""Foster Mother"" and ""Prejudice and Pride"" are brim-full of wry insights into male-female relationships. Testimonials from Samuel R. Delaney, Maureen McHugh, Terry Bisson and Connie Willis, among other big names, should send this one into extra printings. Emshwiller is also the author of a new novel, The Mount (Forecasts, July 8).
