Since the 1970s, many of SF's original theme anthologies have been filled with flimsy toss-offs by the editor's pals. However, there are exceptions. In Not of Woman Born (theme: conscious evolution a.k.a. reproductive technology), editor Constance Ash has collected 13 original stories and one reprint that are strong, well-written, imaginative, highly diverse, and excellent. This is no surprise when you consider the amazing list of contributors, including Patricia A. McKillip, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Jack McDevitt, Robert Silverberg, Debra Doyle and James D. MacDonald, and Walter Jon Williams. --Cynthia Ward
