Product description

Product Description

As Lisa Mason mulled over her previously published short fiction, she found seven wildly different stories with one thing in common--a heroine totally unlike her. Mason is the girl next door. She has no idea where these Strange Ladies came from.

In The Oniomancer (Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine), a Chinese-American punk bicycle messenger finds an artifact on the street. In Guardian (Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine), an African-American gallerist resorts to voodoo to confront a criminal. In Felicitas (Desire Burn: Women Writing from the Dark Side of Passion [Carroll and Graf]), an illegal immigrant faces life as a cat shapeshifter. In Stripper (Unique Magazine), an exotic dancer battles the Mob. In Triad (Universe 2 [Bantam]), Dana Anad lives half the time as a woman, half as a man, and falls in love with a very strange lady. In Destination (Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction), a driver takes three strangers from a ride board on a cross-country trip as the radio reports that a serial killer is on the loose. In Transformation and the Postmodern Identity Crisis (Fantastic Alice [Ace]), Alice considers life after Wonderland.

"I'm quite impressed, not only by the writing, which gleams and sparkles, but also by [Lisa Mason's] versatility . . . Mason is a wordsmith . . . her modern take on Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland is a hilarious gem! [This collection] sparkles, whirls, and fizzes. Mason is clearly a writer to follow!"
--Amazing Stories

Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book), The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book), The Garden of Abracadabra, and Celestial Girl, The Omnibus Edition (A Lily Modjeska Mystery).
