Women Up to No Good Cover Final

Women Up to No Good by Pat Murphy

Pat takes on some of her favorite themes here—women outwitting conventional patriarchal society and friendship between women. But with her gracious, multi-award-winning voice, Pat explores other disturbing themes in Women Up to No Good—troubled marriages, werewolf legends, and a dark retelling of a classic fairytale. You’ll be intrigued, as I was, to explore this multi-textured collection in The Story Collection Storybundle.

Long and Short Reviews
Women Up to No Good is the most imaginative anthology I’ve read in 2013. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves science fiction and fantasy that bends the rules and sometimes even breaks them.

Ravenswood Reviews
Reading Pat Murphy’s outstanding science fiction is always mind-expanding, the equivalent of traveling to other worlds from the comfort of my armchair.

About “A Cartographic Analysis of the Dream State,” a story in Women Up To No Good
This is science fiction at its best. Peel away the technology, otherworldly setting and burgeoning mystery and the reader is left with a close-knit band of resourceful humans charting an unforgiving land. In order to achieve their goals and keep the group safe they’ll muster strength they never knew dwelt within them…. A Cartographic Analysis of the Dream State kept me guessing until the final sentence. This is the perfect book for anyone who has ever looked up at the night sky and wondered what adventures await the next person to fly up there.
