Distaff: A Science Fiction Anthology by Female Authors, eds. Rosie Oliver & Sam Primeau

Second paragraph of third story (“The Ice Man”, by Rosie Oliver):
“What do you want?” she moaned into her pillow.
A short collection of short stories by women, a number of which ended up on the BSFA long list last month, so I expected value for money - and got it. I must say the knockout story of the lot is co-editor Rosie Oliver's “The Ice Man”, which takes the Scandinavian noir sub-genre and adds a very well crafted sfnal tweak to it. But they were all good. You can get it here.
