    y Evolution Annie : And Other Stories Rosaleen Love , London : Women's Press , 1993 Z189013 1993 selected work short story satire science fiction humour A 'superbly ironic collection of ten short stories and one novella. The title story is a pastiche of Roy Lewis's novel The Evolution Man , which provided a male viewpoint of human evolution. Love traces the 'real' story via female intuition and initiatives, although man, as always, claims the credit. Other stories cover topics as diverse as the darkness of Chernobyl and the loss of childhood innocence and wonder in 'Hovering Rock' (Colin Steele, SF Commentary No 77 2001, p.52). London : Women's Press , 1993 pg. 64-75

    y Alien Shores : An Anthology of Australian Science Fiction Peter McNamara (editor), Margaret Winch (editor), North Adelaide : Aphelion Publications , 1994 Z296377 1994 anthology short story science fiction satire Comprising only seven reprints, the new stories are from SF luminaries such as George Turner, Lucy Sussex and Sean McMullen. 'Several of the stories have an almost 1950s golden age tinge to them - for example, George Turner's first-contact story 'Flowering Mandrake,' in which humanity and aliens find they have little in common. In 'The Miocene Arrow Sean McMullen continues his stories in which prehistoric cetaceans take revenge on humanity. In 'Kay and Phil,' Lucy Sussex produces a wonderful vignette of Philip K. Dick in 1961 and the imaginary influences on his cult novel The Man in the High Castle... Fascinating is [Damien Broderick's] short introduction [to 'The Magi'], which tells of his meeting with a prostitute who loves science fiction at a seminar at the Humanities Research Centre at ANU (Colin Steele, SF Commentary No 77, p.53).
