The Nebula Awardwinning short story Love Is the Plan, the Plan Is Death, the Hugo Awardwinning novella The Girl Who Was Plugged In, and the Hugo and Nebula Awardwinning novella Houston, Houston, Do You Read? are included.
Her Smoke Rose Up Forever collects eighteen brilliant short stories from a luminary of the science-fiction genre, James Tiptree, Jr. This updated edition is the quintessential Tiptree collection and contains revisions from the authors original notes. Tiptrees fiction reflects the darkly complex world its author inhabited: exploring the alien among us; the unreliability of perception; love, sex, and death; and humanitys place in a vast, cold universe.
