Her Smoke Rose Up Forever

Her Smoke Rose Up Forever

"An experiment: if you DON'T know who James Tiptree Jr. was, don't turn this book over and read the back. Don't read the introduction. Just charge right into the stories. THEN read the introduction. After. Otherwise, the secret will be spoiled. No one gets to enjoy that secret anymore, and the subsequent revelation.

These are some of my favorite stories in all of science fiction—bleak, difficult, and endearing takes on what it means to be human, how we think about gender, and how very small we are in the universe. I hope these stories haunt you the way they haunt me."

There is just one great collection of Tiptree’s fiction in print . . . Her Smoke Rose Up Forever from Tachyon Publications. It contains all of her major short stories.’”
New York Times Book Review

Her Smoke Rose Up Forever collects eighteen brilliant short stories from a luminary of the science-fiction genre, James Tiptree, Jr. This updated edition is the quintessential Tiptree collection and contains revisions from the author’s original notes. Tiptree’s fiction reflects the darkly complex world its author inhabited: exploring the alien among us; the unreliability of perception; love, sex, and death; and humanity’s place in a vast, cold universe.
