Posted by demonik on December 1, 2009

Cynthia Asquith – “God Grante That She Lye Stille”

Agatha Christie – The Last Séance (The Woman Who Stole a Ghost)
Miriam Allen deFord – Against Authority
Zenna Henderson – J-Line to Nowhere
Anne McCaffrey – The Ship Who Disappeared

C. L. Moore – The Dark Land

Blurb

A medium evokes a vision so real it threatens her very existence …

A dying woman is snatched into another time dimension ….

A long dead spirit fights to inhabit a living body ….

These are but a few of the chilling and gripping ideas contained in The Venus Factor, an anthology of science fiction stories written about women by some of the top women SF writers.

i’ve had enough arguments for one year, so i’ll leave you to decide for yourselves whether or not the Christie, Asquith and Atherton stories actually constitute “science fiction” ….
