Item Description...
Kit Reed has been delighting and terrifying readers for over thirty years with her darkly comic speculative fiction. This collection of short stories, drawn from a lifetime's work, shows Reed at the top of her form. First published in venues ranging from The Missouri Review to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and The Norton Anthology of Contemporary Fiction, these twenty stories deal with women's lives and feminist issues from the kitchen sink and pink dishmop era through the warlike years of the women's movement to the uneasy accommodation of the present.

Kit Reed has been one of science fiction's strongest voices since she published her first short story in 1958, a tale called "The Wait" that appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Much of her work since has focused on women and women's issues, subjects Reed both has a passion for and has much to say about. As the title of this book suggests, it's a collection of Reed's stories dealing with women--a total of 19 starting with "The Wait" and ending with "Whoever." Although Weird Women, Wired Women has been described as a "needed contribution by an important feminist fiction writer," on a more basic level it's an excellent collection by a gifted author. Reed's crisp prose and focused plots complement her insights into society, whether she's dealing with the treatment of women in a male-dominated culture or the relationship between a mother and daughter. --Craig Engler

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Simplistic  May 24, 2002
The book has a very interesting title but the stories just don't live up to it. They wind around and around without going anywhere, they messages at the end of each story are just not interesting.
Weird Women, Wired Women  Mar 28, 2000
I saw this book in a local library, it was sitting on the bottom shelf and it caught my eye. I checked it out because it was a compilation of short stories, and I didn't have to set aside the time to be involved in a book. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO MISTAKEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! The stories are fantastic and they leave you pondering for weeks. I loved this book so much that even before finishing it, I was searching the internet for more titles by Kit Reed. YOU WANT THIS BOOK!
