Science fiction has historically been seen as a masculine domain, but from the very beginning women have made their mark. To the ranks of Mary Shelley and C. L. Moore, we should add Clare Winger Harris, whose pulp stories in the early twentieth century influenced the boom of modern writers such as Ursula K. Le Guin and Margaret Atwood. In this new collection, author and scholar Brad Ricca assembles ten of Harris's greatest short stories, including "The Fifth Dimension," "The Fate of the Poseidonia," "The Menace of Mars," and "The Vibrometer."

Clare Winger Harris (1891–1968) was an early science fiction writer whose short stories were published during the 1920s. She is credited as the first woman to publish stories under her own name in science fiction magazines. Her stories often dealt with characters on the "borders of humanity" such as cyborgs. A native of Illinois, she died in Pasadena, California at age seventy-seven.

"The tales that appear inThe Artificial Man and Other Stories are not new. In fact, they're fast approaching a century old. Yet, much like Asimov, Clare Winger Harris' stories possess something of the eternal. [...] And much like the works of Isaac Asimov, they have retained their power to spark the imagination. Fans of the genre, regardless of whether they are familiar with Harris, will most certainly enjoy this collection of short stories." —Tangent Online
