“Tabula Rasa.” The words came from the other side of the white door. “She’s a blank slate. Everything has been completely wiped—like a newborn.”
“Is she dangerous?” The second voice was lower, clipped.
“I hardly think so,” answered the first voice, dismissively. “Not now, at any rate!” There was a short laugh. Then the door handle turned, and the woman lying on the white bed realised they were talking about her.
In Vera Loy’s second collection of five science fiction stories, a woman wakes to discover she knows nothing– except how to kill; the latest version androids prove to be all too human; and humanity discovers that only women can explore deep space, and remain sane. Although the settings are different for each story, they share a common theme of strong female characters, smashing through that glass ceiling.
Each story a different represents a different sci-fi sub-genre. Tabula Rasa (Spy-fi), Kate and Peter (Bardpunk – based loosely on Shakespeare’s famous play, The Taming of the Shrew), Immortality (Biopunk), To Boldly Go (Space Exploration), and Space Opera.
