The Tiptree Award has published four anthologies, one originally with Edgewood Press and the other three with Tachyon Press. In addition, we’ve published two cookbooks, reprinted the legendary Khatru symposium on gender with (among many others) Tiptree him/herself, Vonda N. McIntyre, Suzy McKee Charnas, Samuel R. Delany, and Joanna Russ, Raylyn Moore). This symposium was edited by Tiptree’s literary executor (and Tiptree motherboard member) Jeffrey D. Smith. We also have Space Babe tattoos and award winner lists for sale.

The Tiptree Quilt Story

The Tiptree Quilt Story by Jeanne Gomoll

The Tiptree Quilt is based on James Tiptree, Jr.’s science fiction novel, Brightness Falls from the Air, which tells the story of humans and aliens who witness the spectacular passing of a fiery wave-front, and the incineration of the planet Damien, caused by the nova of The Murdered Star. 1,248 squares of fabric were used to construct this 100″ x 121″ textile painting of this fantastic scene. Except for two small pieces, the swirling image is constructed with only straight-cut pieces. Work spanned ten years and the combined effort of 65 people from around the world, many of whom had never quilted before. Elspeth Krisor directed and coordinated work on the quilt; Jeanne Gomoll and Tracy Benton designed it.

Edited by Jeffrey D. Smith, 1975; Revision edited by Jeanne Gomoll, 1993

Originally published and edited by Jeffrey D. Smith in 1975, this symposium on women in SF included writing by some of the most well-known authors (plus an agent) of 70s feminist science fiction: Vonda N. McIntyre, Virginia Kidd, Suzy McKee Charnas, Kate Wilhelm, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, (the still mysterious) James Tiptree, Jr., Samuel Delany, Joanna Russ, Raylyn Moore, Luise White and Jeffrey D. Smith. The opinions expressed by Khatru’s participants are still amazingly radical.

This version of Khatru 3 & 4 was published by the 1993 Corflu 10 committee, commemorating the role of feminist SF in Madison fandom. This version includes new material by original participants and commentary by others, including Jane Hawkins, Mog Decarnin, Pat Murphy, Karen Joy Fowler, Gwyneth Jones, and Jeanne Gomoll. New illustrations by Georgie Schnobrich.

T-Shirts

James Tiptree, Jr. 25th Annual Award T-Shirt

Freddie Baer has created and donated a Tiptree T-shirt design each year of the Tiptree Award’s life. A limited number are silkscreened and made available at the site of the Tiptree Ceremony; they sell out very quickly, though sometimes Tiptree shirts do show up at auctions, where they inspire wild bidding.
