Analog raves about The Other Half of the Sky

The Other Half of the Sky cover

Hot on the heels of Aliette’s Nebula win comes a glowing review of the full anthology in Analog! Here’s a glimpse at what the review has to say – but it’s worth checking out for the full, thoughtful analysis of several stories in the antho!

This book nicely fills the void left by the demise of Roby James’s late, lamented Warrior, Wisewoman anthologies. If anything, it’s better.
Look at this lineup of authors: Alexandr Jablokov, Ken Liu, Jack McDevitt, Cat Rambo, Melissa Scott, Joan Slonczewski, Martha Wells . . . and nine other names perhaps less familiar. In all there are 460 pages packed with a great selection of cutting-edge SF stories, most of which wouldn’t be out of place in the pages of Analog.

It’s hard to select standout stories; they’re all of such good quality.

    That is a superb review. I recall being introduced originally to both Jablokov and McDevitt from an anthology out of a Boston-area writer’s collective.

    I met them both at Readercon two years ago and was very impressed – all the more reason I was excited when Athena came to us with this anthology!
