Kort biografi
Alice Bradley Sheldon, better known as James Tiptree, Jr., was born in Chicago, Illinois. At age six, she was taken by her parents on safari in Africa. Her mother, author Mary Hastings Bradley, wrote several books about their travels, including Alice in Jungleland (1927), a children's book that featured photos of her daughter. In 1934, Alice eloped with William Davey, a Princeton student she had met only five days earlier. The couple divorced in 1941 and Alice returned to Chicago, where she got a job as art critic of the Chicago Sun. During World War II, she joined the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps and worked at the Pentagon in photo intelligence. At the end of the war, she was transferred to a different unit, where she married her commanding officer, Colonel Huntington Sheldon. In 1952, they both joined the CIA, where she again worked in photointelligence and studied political changes in Africa. Alice left the CIA in 1955 and resumed her education, earning a B.A. from American University in Washington, D.C., in 1959 and then a Ph.D. in experimental psychology at George Washington University. While completing her dissertation, she wrote several science fiction stories, which she published under the pseudonym James Tiptree, Jr., in order to separate them from her academic career. She became one of the most-respected writers in the sci-fi field, winning the Hugo Award for her novella The Girl Who was Plugged In (1973). During the period 1970 to 1977, she wrote prolifically and at great speed. Her stories were collected in several volumes, including Ten Thousand Light-Years from Home (1973), Warm Worlds and Otherwise (1975), Star Songs of an Old Primate (1978), Out of the Everywhere, and Other Extraordinary Visions (981), and Her Smoke Rose Up Forever: The Great Years of James Tiptree, Jr. (1990). She also wrote several sci-fi stories as Raccoona Sheldon, and some non-sci fi under other names. Her true identity came to light in 1977. She killed herself and her second husband in 1987. She received a posthumous Solstice Award and was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2012.

Beautifully produced book and an interesting collection but not a patch on Her Smoke Rose up Forever. Every story in the latter was a winner - this is much more of a mixed bag.

She's a bit savage and dark, but this book really delivered. I had only read one of these stories before, in an old anthology, but it had stuck with me--so it was nice to return to the accomplished style and craft of the woman behind the pseudonym.

Ce roman court de James Tiptree, pseudonyme d'Alice Sheldon, est un classique de la science-fiction. Paru en 1976, il met en scène trois astronautes américains dont le vaisseau s'est perdu dans l'espace et le temps. Ils sont secourus par un vaisseau venant de la Terre mais trois siècles plus tard. À cette période, la population de la Terre a été réduite à une portion congrue, une épidémie fulgurante n'ayant laissée que onze milles femmes survivantes et aucun homme. Le vaisseau qui récupère les trois astronautes n'est donc peuplé que de femmes. Ces dernières tentent de préserver les trois hommes en leur cachant la réalité. Mais l'un des trois hommes, le seul scientifique, découvre petit à petit la vérité. Puis il comprend que les femmes, vivant sans hommes depuis si longtemps, ne peuvent et ne veulent que leur société, dont elles sont pleinement satisfaites, réintègrent la masculinité. Les trois hommes sont alors assassinés par absorption d'une drogue mortelle.
Le roman est très bien construit et on comprend pourquoi il a obtenu de nombreux prix car il dénote vraiment de la production de l'époque où la masculinité était prépondérante et les voix féminines très peu nombreuses. Alors certes, par moment, le texte, dont la traduction a pourtant été actualisée en 2023, et les idées qu'il véhicule, semble un peu daté. Mais cela reste un tout petit point négatif qui ne gêne que très peu la lecture. Merci aux éditions Le Bélial' d'avoir réédité ce roman court qui a marqué une génération.
