Tales of Eve

Shortlisted for the Best Anthology award by the British Fantasy Society in 2014

Weird Science, Stepford Wives, that episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer… Genre fiction abounds with tales of men creating (or attempting to create) the perfect woman.

Now it’s the woman’s turn.

But being female, she’s flexible. She doesn’t just want to create the perfect man. She wants the perfect companion, be it man, beast or washing machine.

This collection brings together both established scribes and the up-and-coming for a journey into the female mind, with all the desperation, adoration, commitment, creativity and love that you would expect. From contemporary science fiction by Juliet McKenna, to high fantasy from the pen of Adrian Tchaikovsky, and every degree of speculative fiction in between, join us in this exploration of what a woman’s perfect partner can be in these, our Tales of Eve.
