Consider Her Ways and other stories

I like John Wyndham’s novels, perhaps a little dated in their characters attitudes but the storytelling is strong and inventive. Unfortunately, this selection of stories didn’t quite make the grade for me. The title story is about a time in the future when men have died out and women have survived and found a way to procreate alone. But they have created a caste society limiting the women to certain duties and stations in life. The idea was interesting, but the story was dry and dull. Of the other stories the last one providing an interesting twist on the selling one’s soul to the devil was enjoyable. The others show the seeds of Wyndham’s Sci Fi imagination but felt like early drafts, not quite hitting the mark.
