    Sheldon/Tiptree myself. Anyone familiar with her can recommend a good book to start?

    The short stories are best by far - she wasn't a natural novelist.
    Ten Thousand Light Years from Home is lighter and more conventional - which doesn't mean I don't love it dearly.
    Warm Worlds and Otherwise is later work and generally grimmer - and great.

    If you do end up really liking her, the biography by Julie Philips "James Tiptree Jt: The Double Life of Alice B Sheldon" is excellent.
