A collection of three novellas that are not what you’d expect from Martin. I’ve never read anything by his co-author here, Lisa Tuttle, and maybe that’s why I was very surprised by the book. I constantly re-checked the front cover to make sure it’s Martin on it and not Ursula Le Guin 😉 After that I’ve read that Tuttle wrote a book with straightforward title Encyclopedia of Feminism and the world made sense again. I don’t want to imply it’s not a good book, I love Le Guin and feminist is not an insult in my vocabulary. But it’s no Game of Thrones, in small scale political conflicts we encounter here hardly anybody dies and the reader is left feeling nostalgic, but optimistic about human nature.
