Brightness falls from the air by James Tiptree( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They have gathered now on Damien and are about to witness the last rising of a manmade nova. They are 16 humans in a distant world about to be enveloped by an eruption of violence--horror and murder oddly complemented by a bizarre unforgiving love. But justice is not all that's about to be found. Judgment is coming and the 16 unsuspecting ones are on the threshold of the murdered star
Up the walls of the world by James Tiptree( Book )

20 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Tiptree Jr. tells a fascinating tale of bizarre aliens and flawed humans in the novel "Up the Walls of the World". On Earth, a burned-out doctor leads a government project to test a group of higly dysfunctional human telepaths. On the wind-world of Tyree, a group of aliens try to stave off the destruction of their sun by a creature know as the Destroyer. To save themselves, they could jump into the minds of the human psychics, but should they? Should they sacrifice the lives of a few people to save their own race from destruction? Such moral questions lie at the heart of Tiptree's work. Tiptree (aka Alice Sheldon) does a fantastic job of portraying the pain and pathos of the humans, and the society and culture of the Tyree, all with the intense, poetic prose that she is so well known for. A deep and beautiful work. --A Customer at Amazon. com
The starry rift by James Tiptree( Book )

20 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Starry Rift presents three adventure stories of the human exploration of the Rift, a starless region of our galaxy beyond which lie non-human civilizations. In the first, a 15 year-old girls' wanderlust leads her to a friendship with an alien and a dilemma they must face together. The second is a tale of a free-spirited man who roams space assisting those in trouble or salvaging their ruins. His work brings him face to face with his past and the need to choose between love and freedom. The last story is that of a clash of cultures, two super powers engaging across the rift zone. We watch from both sides as events escalate toward war and individuals struggle to avoid that dire outcome. The stories are framed with encounters in a library, where an amphibious librarian assists two students, also alien to human eyes, in their exploration of human history

The color of neanderthal eyes by James Tiptree( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in Spanish and English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El Color de los Ojos del Neandertal: El Color de los Ojos del Neandertal es la obra póstuma de James Tiptree, jr. Publicada tras su muerte, en 1988, en el Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, constituye todo un testamento. Todos sus temas están aquí: el sexo, el feminismo, la exogamia, la ecología, las relaciones hombre/mujer, las crisis de identidad…, y sobre todo la muerte. La muerte en todas sus formas: física, ideológica, del espíritu, de las esperanzas, incluso de toda una raza. Es una auténtica obra maestra, que debería hacernos pensar sobre nuestra historia y sobre nuestro papel en este mundo y en todo el universo. La Plaga de Midas: Dentro de la obra de Frederick Pohl, La Plaga de Midas es, en la misma línea que Mercaderes del Espacio, una de las obras más celebradas del autor, y otro de los clásicos indiscutidos de la ciencia ficción universal. En una subersión absoluta de las leyes de la oferta y la demanda, Pohl nos plantea un mundo en el que el consumo está absolutamente esclavizado por la producción, y los conceptos de rico y pobre han sufrido una inversión total. Puede que el "consumo obligado" nos parezca una solución absurda al problema del exceso de producción, pero, si miramos con atención a nuestro alrededor, ¿lo es realmente?
Letters to Tiptree( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly a decade, a middle-aged woman in Virginia (her own words) had much of the science fiction community in thrall. Her short stories were awarded, lauded and extremely well-reviewed. They were also regarded as "ineluctably masculine," because Alice Sheldon was writing as James Tiptree Jr. In celebration of Alice Sheldon's centenary, Letters to Tiptree presents a selection of thoughtful letters from thirty-nine science fiction and fantasy writers, editors, critics, and fans address questions of gender, of sexuality, of the impossibility and joy of knowing someone only through their fiction and biography
