Women Up to No Good: A Collection of Short Stories - Pat Murphy

*Book source ~ Many thanks to Untreed Reads for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.


In this anthology there are 16 short stories in the sci-fi and fantasy category. While I enjoyed each well-written tale I liked some more than others. And if asked to pick a favorite I would say it is True Story.


A Flock of Lawn Flamingoes ~ There’s always that one rebel…

One Odd Shoe ~ An interesting tale about Coyote

On the Dark Side of the Station Where the Train Never Stops ~ Men *sigh*

Love and Sex Among the Invertebrates ~ Hmmm…next evolutionary plane?

The Eradication of Romantic Love ~ Very creative

Points of Departure ~ This one I didn’t get. There’s always one of these for me in an anthology.

South of Oregon City ~ Liked this one

Ménage and Menagerie ~ My 2nd favorite

The True Story ~ My favorite

Dragon’s Gate ~ This one could be a tie for 2nd place.

A Cartographic Analysis of the Dream State ~ Ooooh…interesting.

Exploding, Like Fireworks ~ This reminds me a little bit of Anne McCaffrey’s Brainship series.

Recycling Strategies for the Inner City ~ I’m not quite sure I understood this one.

Games of Deception ~ Meh

Iris Versus the Black Knight ~ I’m interpreting this in a certain way, but I’m not sure it’s the right way. lol

Going Through Changes ~ Ok, this was a bit creepy.
