Hard to believe this was written in 1905! Very brief, but an interesting depiction of a feminist utopia called Ladyland. The author was a Bengali woman who was clearly WAY ahead of her time and culture!

This is headed out as a RABCK to another BookCrosser who I thought might enjoy it.

The RABCK package arrived today - thanks so much! (The package had been opened for media-mail inspection; I think all the original books were still in it, but if I fail to journal one, please let me know, as that might indicate an escapee.) This one looks fascinating, early feminist SF...

Later: Yep! Quite a charming spin on a women's utopia, with its emphasis on solar power (very forward-thinking for 1905) and cloud-harvesting. (There's a TV Tropes page on works featuring women-only or women-in-charge societies, including a reference to this story.)
