It starts with a story, written as a news report, about a woman whose words are considered so dangerous no one is allowed to report them.
I had only read one of the stories previously, one by Octavia E Butler, which was also in her Bloodchild short story collection, and it was a joy to read again. Other highlights were "The Woman Who Thought She Was a Planet" by Vandana Singh and "The Screwfly Solution" by James Tiptree Jr.
The "Glass Bottle Trick" was a wonderful modern version of the Blackbeard tale with a heartbreaking twist. "The Perfect Married Woman" was the funniest and perhaps the strangest tale, about the nature of doors.
But really there are no weak links here. Each story is well chosen and adds something new to the conversation. Very well done.
Hay algunos cuentos simplemente fabulosos, de autoras de las que cabe preguntarse por qué no son más conocidas.

That said, there weren't any stories in here that were so inspiringly excellent that I immediately wanted to track down everything the author ever wrote- that's why I'm giving it four rather than five stars. The Grammarian's Five Daughters by Eleanor Arnason was close though.
