A deplorable story written by a man in which women enjoy being abused by men yeah no future settings where everything has gone to hell in a hand basket doesn t really cut it for me although i appreciate that for some sci fi readers it s paradise i prefer the uality of life the star trek series portrayed of the future and often wish that we could skip our current political angers and move to the trekkies portrayed of the future and often wish that we could skip our current political angers and move to the trekkies view immediately Good but depressing short story set in a post apocalyptic radiation affected New York Rather thinly veiled allusions to Heaven and Hell with reference to Inferno Fictional take on allusions to Heaven and Hell with reference to Inferno Fictional take on BDSM community where partners consent to violence amongst each other Without the few futuristic elements including genetic mutation this is merely a tale of a man who gets Dystopian post nuke uniue development as far as I now Something hard boiled fragmented One of my favorite stories from Fritz Leiber 40 to 45 stars A classic science fiction short story that deserves the title One of my favorite pieces by Leiber The story was named one of the best short stories of all time. A future New York City has changed since a nuclear bomb left areas of radiation that threaten the residents Women wear coverings E of the boyfried It turns our her flirting was intended only to arouse the anger of her boyfried as she craves His Abuse Turner Finally Tears abuse Turner finally tears mask away and is repulsed by her expression of hatred for him Confused and disheartened in the state of society Wynsten uickly leaves America to return home Highly Recommended The tag line is Women will always go on trying to attract men even when the future seems to have no future Yup Surprisingly good classic short story The setting is a bit dated WWIIIpost WWIII cold war between US an USSR but the theme atmosphere is not the fall of the western world to depravity and immorality The idea that the Americans have sexualized a woman s face so much that all women wear masks is very intriguing You now if masks really were fashion trends the whole world would be a whole lot easier right now This story was weird I m not really sure if there s a reason it needed to be sci fi besides the oh reveal at the end and even then that
Could Be Fixed If The 
be fixed if the just had a poker face But then again if it wasn t sci fi then I wouldn t be reading it hu. Nder He finds himself attracted and repelled by the girl in this classic story of future shock from a science fiction grand master. .
