    "Great stories"

    A couple of the performances were uneven, but all in all, a great listen. I enjoyed it very much

    "Women really do excellently destroy sci-fi!"

    I found Women Destroy Science Fiction to be a wonderfully diverse anthology of some of the many different genres of sci-fi written by women authors (and excellently destroy it, they did!). I was thrilled to find a story included by James Tiptree, Jr., who wrote one of my favorite shorts (The Screwfly Solution). Without a doubt I'll checking out others titles by many of the authors, as well as the Women Destroy Fantasy anthology.
