Letters to Tiptree

TiptreeIt is Tiptree month, because yesterday Alice Sheldon would have turned 100. I am completely ensnared in All Things Sheldon/Tiptree at the moment because of Letters to Tiptree, which was launched yesterday for Sheldon’s birthday and which has been consuming much of my time over the last few months. I’m immensely proud of this book and still incredibly honoured that Alisa asked me to co-edit it with her.

A few people have written articles about Sheldon and Tiptree, so here – have some links:

Leah Schnelbach on What James Tiptree can teach us about the power of the SF Community

Brit Mandelo on Where To Start with the Works of James Tiptree, Jr 

Tansy Rayner Roberts on Raccoona Sheldon’s “The Screwfly Solution”

Galactic Suburbia on the amazing biography written by Julie Phillips a few years ago

Alisa talked about Tiptree and other things over on the Three Hoarsemen podcast

Not sure you’re interested in reading a whole bunch of letters to Sheldon/Tiptree? Here are some examples:
