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 hardboiled 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'.

Brilliantly imaginative collection
This is a fantastic, varied collection of SF with sometimes overwhelmingly detailed descriptions of strange worlds, tech and aliens crammed into them. Some really original but relatable characters too. Major kudos to the reader Catherine Bailey for performing a huge range of (sometimes totally off the wall) roles and describing Tiptree's weird worlds and ideas with total conviction.
