Another one to my TBR Pile. Wonderful review.
Yeah, I'm going to preorder this.

I'm looking forward to your review. Thinking back on it with respect to your usual stat collection, I think only one of the 14 stories passes the Bechdel test.
It's interesting to me that women could publish as women--less than half had male pseudonyms--as long as they wrote about and from the perspective of men.
I look at stats like that not so much as interesting in and of themselves - we know the western world was (and sometimes still is) violently sexist. I like to look at the examples of people who were able to fight there way through the BS and make themselves heard, and I try to listen to what they were saying through the disguises and self-editing necessary to get published. I've got it downloaded, so hopefully I'll get started on it sooner rather than later.
