Kort biografi
Alice Bradley Sheldon, better known as James Tiptree, Jr., was born in Chicago, Illinois. At age six, she was taken by her parents on safari in Africa. Her mother, author Mary Hastings Bradley, wrote several books about their travels, including Alice in Jungleland (1927), a children's book that featured photos of her daughter. In 1934, Alice eloped with William Davey, a Princeton student she had met only five days earlier. The couple divorced in 1941 and Alice returned to Chicago, where she got a job as art critic of the Chicago Sun. During World War II, she joined the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps and worked at the Pentagon in photo intelligence. At the end of the war, she was transferred to a different unit, where she married her commanding officer, Colonel Huntington Sheldon. In 1952, they both joined the CIA, where she again worked in photointelligence and studied political changes in Africa. Alice left the CIA in 1955 and resumed her education, earning a B.A. from American University in Washington, D.C., in 1959 and then a Ph.D. in experimental psychology at George Washington University. While completing her dissertation, she wrote several science fiction stories, which she published under the pseudonym James Tiptree, Jr., in order to separate them from her academic career. She became one of the most-respected writers in the sci-fi field, winning the Hugo Award for her novella The Girl Who was Plugged In (1973). During the period 1970 to 1977, she wrote prolifically and at great speed. Her stories were collected in several volumes, including Ten Thousand Light-Years from Home (1973), Warm Worlds and Otherwise (1975), Star Songs of an Old Primate (1978), Out of the Everywhere, and Other Extraordinary Visions (981), and Her Smoke Rose Up Forever: The Great Years of James Tiptree, Jr. (1990). She also wrote several sci-fi stories as Raccoona Sheldon, and some non-sci fi under other names. Her true identity came to light in 1977. She killed herself and her second husband in 1987. She received a posthumous Solstice Award and was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2012.

Et fly styrter ned i en sump. Mrs Persson og hendes datter slipper sammen med en Maya-indianer og en anden mand relativt uskadt fra styrtet. De er imidlertid strandet på ubestemt tid, men Mrs Persson og datteren tager et lift på ubestemt tid med et hold aliens, de støder på.

Indeholder "Robert Silverberg: Who Is Tiptree, What Is He?", "All the Kinds of Yes", "The Milk of Paradise", "And I Have Come Upon This Place by Lost Ways", "The Last Flight of Dr. Ain", "Amberjack", "Through a Lass Darkly", "The Girl Who Was Plugged In", "The Night-blooming Saurian", "The Women Men Don't See", "Fault", "Love Is the Plan the Plan Is Death", "On the Last Afternoon".

"Robert Silverberg: Who Is Tiptree, What Is He?" er Silverbergs forsøg på at analysere sig frem til at pseudonymet James Tiptree Jr. selvfølgelig er en mand. Morsomt nok viste det sig kort tid efter offentliggørelsen af forordet at James Tiptree Jr. dækkede over Dr. Alice Raccoona Sheldon.
"All the Kinds of Yes" handler om en alien, der kommer til Jorden og møder Filomena og Barlow og bliver gravid.
"The Milk of Paradise" handler om ???
"And I Have Come Upon This Place by Lost Ways" handler om ???
"The Last Flight of Dr. Ain" er en skræmmende beretning om Dr. Ain der fortæller en forsamling af mikrobiologer om den pest, han har udviklet. Den spredes af alle varmblodede dyr, men dræber stort set kun de højere primater. På flyveturen til kongressen har han flittigt brugt sin lille inhalatorspray og fodret fugle med brødkrummer han har med. Fugle er jo varmblodede, som han fortæller sikkerhedsfolkene, da de arresterer ham. For at redde Jorden har han dømt menneskene til undergang.
"Amberjack" handler om kærlighed mellem pigen Rue og et uheldigt anfald af fremsynethed.
"Through a Lass Darkly" handler om ???
"The Girl Who Was Plugged In" handler om ???
"The Night-blooming Saurian" handler om ???
"The Women Men Don't See" handler om et flystyrt, hvor Mrs Persson og hendes datter sammen med en Maya-indianer og en anden mand slipper relativt uskadt fra. De er imidlertid strandet på ubestemt tid, men Mrs Persson og datteren tager et lift på ubestemt tid med et hold aliens, de støder på.
"Fault" handler om en mand, der lemlæster en alien og bliver straffet af dem ved at blive skubbet til, så han tidsmæssigt kommer mere og mere bagud i forhold til resten af verden. Ret grusom straf, men hans handling var også grusom.
"Love Is the Plan the Plan Is Death" handler om Moggadeet og Leelyloo, der elsker hinanden, hvilket er helt efter planen.
"On the Last Afternoon" handler om en koloni der er i stor fare og måske kan reddes af en noion. Den giver tre ønsker, men de må ikke være andet end helt sikkert ment.
