Machine Sex and Other Stories

Humanity meets advancing technology...

In this short story anthology by one of Canada’s leading figures in speculative fiction, enter new worlds where humanity meets advancing technology, space exploration and cultural change.

Of the stories featured in this collection “Sleeping in a Box”, won the 1988 Casper (now Aurora) award for best short form work in English, and “Johnny Appleseed on the New World” was selected for inclusion in Messages from Earth, a project developed by Carl Sagan and Jon Lomberg, which will be developed into a CD-ROM collection of literature to accompany a joint US-Russian Mars exploration craft.

The title story of this collection was also reprinted in the Norton Anthology of Science Fiction.

Praise:

“Dorsey is a tough, uncompromising writer. Her prose, seemingly plain and unornamented, resists narrative fiercely, and the reader is forced to construct meaning (if such is the goal of a work of art...) in different ways than the typical science fiction short story. Each story in Machine Sex is so independent-minded and robust that I found it near impossible to summarize tendencies in each kind of category.” — Challenging Destiny Magazine

“Dorsey gently exposes the passion and pain of 'whatware' survival/participation in the multiplex realities of the worlds in-/out-side our skins. The texture is silken tough.” — Judith Merril

“What differentiates Dorsey's fiction from the mass of conventional SF is the way its subtle nuances, its moods and tonalities, insist on making us not just see but feel. Slipping easily from pastoral paradoxes to futuristic fetishes. Dorsey always catches the human element, evoking a range of futures with subveersive wit, anger, and compassion. There are images here that will stick in your memory, moments that will stick in your heart,” — Douglas Barbour
