35. Her Smoke Rose Up Forever

By James Tiptree, Jr. (508 pp)

This is another one of those short story collections I've had for several years, reading a few stories here and there. I noticed I was about 2/3rds through and decided to hunker down and finish it. Tiptree is really Alice Sheldon. I discovered a Tiptree story called "The Women Men Don't See" in a giant science fiction collection I read a number of years ago. I still love it and re-read it fairly often. The stories in the collection are good but really grim endings so it's kind of a slog to read one story after the other. Many I should re-read since I think I missed something. Lots of vivid images that stick with you. Recommend.
