    "A treatise on sexual preconceptions and gender fluidity. If you're into that kind of thing then this will be fine. If not, it feels like a sermon."

    "The writing in this book is impeccable. I was engaged throughout and the stories are quite good. I love reading books with great wording and language and this is definitely one of those books. It's like poetry in motion really; I couldn't put it down. The book is inspiring, thoughtful, and I found myself questioning things in my own life and how society is now. Each story is unique and interesting. "

    "This is a collection of stories by a Hugo award winning author who presents aliens and otherworldly creatures in a way that makes them as real as you or me. I had never read anything by her before, but after going through this book, I'm going to start. Her accolades are well-earned."

    "If you enjoy books by Ursula Le Guins this is a great purchase. It is 3 books in one and all are wonderfully written science fiction books. So many books these days are poorly written and churned out as quickly as possible and this is not the case with these stories. Grab some coffee, turn off your cell phone and enjoy the fantasy world these books take you to!"
