    1. Although it is IMO questionable as to whether all these stories are really science fiction, or even proto sci fi, they are all very interesting and I enjoyed reading them A worthy companion volume to the editor s prior collection of Victorian Edwardian women writers, The Darker Sex Tales of the Supernatural and Macabre by Victorian Women Writers.The Stories are The Blue Laboratory by L.T Meade Mad doctor, abominable medical experiments, young woman in mortal danger in a countdown to death A good [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this collection of 19th and early 20th century short stories by women The phrase tales of scientific imagination is definitely accurate than science fiction many of these deal with invention and discovery It s great to explore the work of authors whose work has often fallen by the wayside, even though it may have been popular in its day, and to gain perspective on the attitudes of the time Plus, many of these stories are just purely enjoyable The Blue Laboratory by L.T Meade 18 [...]

    4. Some of these stories, early science fiction and other imaginative tales by 19th and early 20th century women, are amazing I especially enjoyed L T Meade s The Blue Laboratory and Roquia Sakhawat Hossein s The Sultana s Dream , as well as familiar, but high quality, anthology fare like Mary Shelley s The Mortal Immortal and Mary Elizabeth Braddon s Good Lady Ducayne Probably my favorite was Alice W Fuller s A Wife Manufactured to Order , which has essentially the same plot as a late episode of [...]

    5. Women are unilaterally excluded from and erased from the contributive narrative of our history Pick any aspect of culture, be it art, history, military strategy, or in this case, the burgeoning of science fiction, and you ll find women who are underrepresented or forgotten despite their often titular contributions to our world It s unfortunate that science fiction, then, is also assumed to have always been a male dominated film Ideas like this perpetuate a myth that women today dreaming, working [...]

    6. 1 2The subtitle to this book Early tales of scientific imagination by women is a pretty good description of this anthology, which brings together 11 proto scifi short stories by female authors of the 19th and early 20th century Is such a gender based collection still needed in our day and age Frankly, yes, and there are some very good reasons for this First of all, in the early days of speculative fiction, women writers were at forefront of the genre, going beyond the frontiers of reality whethe [...]

    8. Another book picked up in the recent Sci Fi exhibition in the British Library, this is a selection of stories by fourteen different writers, dating from 1868 to 1928.Apart from a couple of stories which I found weakly thought out and, over, weakly told, the stories in this collection are fascinating in being imaginative and thrilling than I d expected.The short introductory texts were a good idea, too, giving some little information about the writers, most of whom are entirely obscure.

    9. The most interesting thing about this book is imagining the female writers at their desks putting their thoughts and ideas on paper I like many of the short stories L.T Maude The Blue Laboratory M E Braddon Good Lady Ducayne R.S Hossein The Sultana s Dream and others not so much But it s definitely a keeper for my bookshelf.

    12. Some of the stories are uneven, and the endings tend towards the abrupt Really interesting concepts, though, and a truly beautiful piece at the end.
