Another gem in this anthology is Richard Calder's "The Catgirl Manifesto: An Introduction," a weird story masquerading as a scholarly introduction on the origin and effects of an extremely seditious document. It successfully builds what feels like a complete reality even though it only gives us tantalizing glimpses of the alternate historical events that take place in it. The "story" raises some disturbing issues about gender, sexuality, and death making it perhaps The James Tiptree Award Anthology 1's most successful attempt at pushing back the boundaries of the gender debate. -- The SFSite

Tiptree nominated short story. Anthologized in Album Zutique, edited by Jeff Vandermeer, and in The James Tiptree Award Anthology 1 (2005).
