I don t quite remember how I found out about this Kickstarter, but Elly Blue, a Portland based publisher of cycling books and a regular zine, was requesting funding for her second anthology of feminist, cycling, science fiction Bikes in Space Volume II Or that dykes on bikes book as a colleague hilariously referred to it when it arrived in the post While it s certainly not my usual fare, it sounded like an intriguing enough combination and I do like cycling, science fiction, and women so I signe [...]
T ss toisessa Bikes in Space antologiassa on pitk lti sama meininki kuin ensimm isess kin synkki postapokalypseja tai dystopioita Juonenkehittely tuntuu monissa novelleissa j neen v h n vajaaksi.
What a great little book The book is a series of short stories The stories are all set in the future and all have bikes in someway I enjoyed this book a lot Now I want to find an old bicycle, start riding again while singing Born to be Wild as I pedal away Thank you Giveaway.
I won this book in a GoodReads giveaway I wasn t sure what this book was all about when it arrived, but bicycles feminism turns out to be really great for story telling It s a small book with little stories, but they all pack a serious punch in such a small space I hope there are volumes of this series
Super fun and creative and thoughtful
Bikes in Space is back with another dozen smart, intersectional takes on the future, from near to distant, hopeful to disastrous, tragic to hilarious all inhabited by badass women on bicycles A bike messenger races toward glory, fueled by vegan donuts A woman pedals across a nuclear wasteland for the chance to choose her own future and identity A young girl is the only person in her village who doesn t ride a bike The world must face the consequences of most epic butt dial in the history of the [...]
I really enjoyed and recommend this engaging collection of 12 short stories Although labeled feminist Sci FI because the stories are by women and about female characters, this collection is for all Sci FI and short story fans Subjects span where old is new again, young coming of age, or a race against the drones Of course the stories include multiple ages, times, status and locations Enjoy
I received a copy of Bikes in Space More Feminist Bicycle Science Fiction through giveaways Flash fiction at the intersection of feminism and bicycling Intriguing starting point, very Portland I struggle to have strong opinions about flash fiction as it s too short for me to get emotionally invested and few writers have the skill to pull it off in the first place I wish some of the stories were much longer.
I won this little zine in a giveaway and I loved it The volume is the perfect size for pocket or bag The stories are the perfect length for taking a fun break or waiting for an appointment Each story was well written with likeable main characters and enough plot twists to keep me entertained I will keep an eye out for other works by these authors.
Good short stories Book is rather small, can finish in an hour Support the small puplisher.
This is a win review This is another collection of stories that are science fiction, bikes and women A different type of book from what I usually read.
I won a copy of this book.12 short science fiction stories about women and bicycles Grandma Takes Off was my personal favorite.
Solid set of feminist sci fi short stories, with a running theme of bikes A couple of them definitely left me wanting
More of a 3.75 4 Beautifully compiled and a great range of voices I didn t think I was much of a sci fy person but this zine has me second guessing that assumption Locally published in Portland is a cool perk
