Summary

Groundbreaking, provocative novels that challenge gender assumptions—in stories of aliens and humans, women and men, and the shifting nature of identity.   The James Tiptree, Jr. Award was established to acknowledge works of science fiction or fantasy that expand or explore our understanding of gender. The three novels in this collection each embody that continually evolving challenge in boldly original and highly imaginative ways.   A Woman of the Iron People: The inaugural winner of the Tiptree Award in 1991, this “excellent, anthropologically oriented SF tale” (Publishers Weekly) examines the fear and fascination on both sides when a group of human scientists discovers an advanced yet seemingly primitive alien culture.   “Fascinating . . . Very wise and funny . . . Full of complicated and irresistible people, some of them human.” —Ursula K. Le Guin   Waking the Moon: Nebula Award–winning author Elizabeth Hand serves up a seductive, post-feminist thriller in which a college freshman accidentally discovers the existence of the Benandanti, a clandestine order devoted to suppressing the powerful Moon Goddess and secretly manipulating the world’s governments and institutions.   “A potent socio-erotic ghost story.” —William Gibson   Larque on the Wing: A middle-aged housewife’s thoughts become reality when her rebellious inner child takes control, and she transforms herself into a fearless gay man. This is a moving, funny, surprising, and transcendent tale of one woman’s unusual quest to come to terms with who she truly is.   “Springer effectively uses fantasy to evoke midlife soul-searching. . . . An engrossing novel about gender and self-formation.” —Publishers Weekly

    The Bear's Virgin Darling  
    Hope moves to Honeypot to escape a bad breakup. She gets a job as a ranch hand doing menial labor. It's hard work, but she doesn't mind. It gives her something to focus on besides her pain.  
     
    It takes her mind off her loser ex and focuses it on something useful, like gardening and feeding chickens.  
     
    But there's something strange about the Blair brothers. They're always whispering among themselves, sneaking off at night, and talking about things that don't make sense to her.  
     
    Before Hope can figure out what they're hiding, she finds herself falling for the oldest brother, Wyatt. He's tall, dark, handsome, and incredibly charming, but there's something more to the quirky cowboy.  
     
    Can Hope handle his secret?  
     
    Can he handle hers?  
     
     
    The Bear's Virgin Mate  
    Carter Blair has seen his share of bad days, but nothing compares to the day he's notified that his ex-girlfriend has died and left him a son: his son.  
     
    When Cherise left for graduate school after college, she promised to keep in touch with Carter, but she didn't.  
     
    He thought she'd gotten bored and moved on.  
     
    He couldn't have been more wrong.  
     
    Now he's got a 5-year-old son he knows nothing about, a ranch he's trying to promote, and his parents about to return from their retirement vacation.  
     
    He doesn't know what he'd do without his best friend, Savannah, to keep him grounded.  
     
    But Savannah is hiding something and Carter doesn't know what it is.  
     
    Will he be able to pry the truth from her before it's too late?  
     
     
    The Bear's Virgin Bride  
    Micah doesn't fit in.  
     
    He's always been the odd one out when it comes to his brothers. Instead of spending time in the fields with Wyatt and Carter, Micah prefers to work on his computer. Programming and coding makes sense to him.  
     
    Fixing fences doesn't.  
     
    When their family opens the ranch to visitors, not much changes for Micah. He's still in charge of the ranch's Internet presence and online marketing. He still spends most of his time in front of a computer. Then one night, a young woman in trouble shows up on his cabin porch, and Micah just can't turn her away.  
     
    Evelyn is soft, sweet, and completely human.  
     
    Can Micah save her from her past?  
     
    Can she save him from his?
