Something in Common

In the collection, there are a few award-winning novels by Greg such as Sisters, Scattershot, and Hardfought book. All of these novels have the things we mentioned above in common. Don’t worry, we will make sure we let you know something about each of these stories in our Women in Deep Time book review so that you can have a better understanding of what this book collection holds.


The first we have is a Nebula Award-Winning novelette called Hardfought. In this story, Greg introduces his readers to a new alien race called the Senexi who are at war with the humans. These galactic wars cause tremendous damage and no one is very keen on having them, but when there is no choice it has to be done.


Hope for peace presents itself after a young girl figures out the Senexi’s larger role in this war and that the humans still have an opportunity to save themselves from the horrible destruction and live in peace.

This young girl who has the chance to save everyone is the main reason that we are talking about Hardfought in this book review of Women in Deep Time and that it is in the collection in the first place. Moving on, the other two short stories presented in this book are Sisters and Scattershot, both of which are perfect examples of science fiction content with leading and heroic female characters.


The story in Scattershot is led by the same as all kinds of alien races meet in a neutral limbo space that is the start of a thrilling adventure that has many unexpected twists. Greg Bear has managed to maintain his unique writing style and come up with more and more unforgettable characters that make sure to leave big impressions on the readers.

Women in Deep Time is another one of his few great short novel book collections by Greg that is perfect for introducing new readers to his work. Instead of diving into a complex and long story by Greg for the first time, now they can simply go through this collection and see what Greg Bear is all about.
