Shaking the Tree (1997)

Edited by John Benson and Tina Reigel

“We’d like to claim that we deliberately set out, with a title already in mind, to design a collection of stories written by women about different forms of relationships. But we didn’t…. The stories here deal with four female relationships: woman/snake and man/snake; woman and machine (without sex); woman and robot; and woman and woman.”
