Review of Distaff

Distaff (2019) is an anthology of nine science-fiction stories by women authors who are members of the sffchronicles community forum. The result is an eclectic collection ranging across the spectrum of science fiction.

Two of the stories stood out particularly for me. “The Broken Man” by Jane O’Reilley is told in simple language, but this simplicity made this story a charming one. “The Ice Man” by Rosie Oliver is a high-tech police procedural story, with a bit of noir flavor, and a surprising (but still logical) conclusion. It’s also one of several winter-themed stories in the anthology, which was one of the several threads that helped hold them all together.

If you’re a fan of sci-fi stories and women authors, check out Distaff for a lovely anthology of both. The book releases tomorrow (August 15) at WorldCon in Dublin, but is also available to purchase online.

An author included in this anthology provided us a copy of the anthology for review consideration.
