This is another book I got because it's currently free for KindleSome of the short stories are really fascinating and some of them are really unpleasant I haven't finished the book but I can tell you this skip the The Earth of Nenkunal section Just skip it It would be hard to make it misogynistic if you tried and that's before the main character rapes someone The details make it even worse Just don'tAlso Eugenics And silly eugenics at that No dude being a lazy or clumsy or unmotivated engineer is not genetic People are too complicated to categorize on a straight line from good to bad and success in business does not necessarily correspond to even what you think you're talking about Undesirable strains low survival types losers freakish types he says Not to mention genetic barbarians And then there's the shiny new advanced subspecies of humans whose most obvious distinguishing feature is having solid bone in the bridge of the nose instead of just cartilage Sounds like something picked at random right Nope One step farther from the primordial flat faced apeman says the character who has it Sure go ahead that argument's never been used by racists sarcasmBut I still couldn't help but like Gweanvin until I got to the part where even though it's many thousand years in the future and he's just explained how none of the people involved are actually human men just inherently have polygamous instincs and women are the oppositeIn 19 short stories we get two female POV characters Neither is human The author has a huge amount of imagination and creativity clearly but somehow he can't conceive of women EVER growing beyond what he thinks they are in 1970 The main thing I got out of this book is a greater appreciation of female SF writers
