Zubaan Books
This collection of mind-expanding stories is now available in a brand new paperback edition as part of the Zubaan Classics series to celebrate Zubaan's 10th anniversary.

Already a name in the world of science fiction and fantasy writing, Vandana Singh presents her first collection of stories, bringing this unique imagination to a wider audience.
In the title story, a woman tells her husband of her curious discovery: that she is inhabited by small alien creatures. In another, a young girl returning home through the streets of Delhi comes across a mysterious tetrahedron: is it a spaceship? Or a secret weapon? Each story in this fabulous collection opens up new vistas — from outer space to the inner world — and takes the reader on an incredible journey to both.

“A most promising and original young writer.”
—Ursula K. LeGuin, author of The Earthsea Trilogy

“I’m looking forward to the collection despite the fact that I haven’t actually read that much of Singh’s work, or perhaps because of that fact, because everything I’ve read has impressed me—the past and future visions in 'Delhi’, the intenisty of 'Thirst’, the feeling of escape at the end of 'The Tetrahedron’...” —Niall Harrison, Vector (British Science Fiction Association)

“...attracts all the inadequate adjectives reviewers pull out when rendered nearly speechless: beautiful, evocative, mysterious,
brilliant, stunning...” —www.sfsite.com

“...the first writer of Indian origin to make a serious mark in the SF world, ... she writes with such a beguiling touch of the strange.”
—Nilanjana Roy, Business Standard

“Singh says that speculative fiction has a unique “revolutionary potential”. If so, The Woman Who Thought She Was a Planet is as enjoyable as a revolutionary text you’re likely to find.” Jess McCabe, The F Word, 4.1.2009
