  • James Tiptree, Jr., burst onto the science fiction scene in the late 1960s with a series of hard-edged, provocative stories. What no one knew was that ‘he’ was actually a 61-year-old woman named Alice Bradley Sheldon. A feminist, she took a male name as a joke - and found the voice to write her stories.

    Based on extensive research, exclusive interviews, and full access to Alice Sheldon’s papers, Julie Phillips has penned a biography of a profoundly original writer and a woman far ahead of her time.
