Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

James Tiptree Jr., the pen name of Alice Bradley Sheldon, is widely considered to be one of the most influential American genre writers ever and a pioneer of feminist science fiction.   

10,000 Light Years from Home, her brilliant debut collection, displays all her trademark humour, intensity and originality, with dark dystopian thrills, fast-paced intergalactic satire and hard-boiled tales of alien invasion. 

A startling and unforgettable depiction of humanity's experience among the stars, the collection includes some of Tiptree's most powerful stories: 'And I Awoke and Found Me Here on the Cold Hill's Side', 'The Man Who Walked Home' and 'Beam Us Home'.
