What Broads can do



A long time ago, the realms of science fiction, fantasy, and horror endured a debate over whether women could write as well as men. For example, could a woman really write as well as James Tiptree Jr.?

It turned out that Tiptree was really Alice B. Sheldon. That almost ended debate then and there, except for occasional nonsense like this:

Of course women can write, and here’s a chance to see what they can do. Broad Universe, an organization that promotes women in gender fiction, has published an anthology of twenty-nine short stories and fiction excerpts. Broad Spectrum, The 2012 Broad Universe Fiction Sampler even includes a story by me.

The anthology is free. Get the ebook here:

Available in multiple formats: online in HTML and JavaScript, or in Kindle, Epub, PDF, RTF, LRF, and Palm Doc PDB.
