This purchase reminded me of the importance and power of actual bookshops as part of our book buying experience. I would never have read this book if I had not fallen on it by accident while browsing the science fiction shelves of an actual shop. My first reaction was: what the heck is this book that I have never heard of, with such a title, and such a cover, doing be reprinted in the SF Masterwork’s series? Then I read the blurb on the back. A future 700 years hence where the Nazi’s rule half the world but written by a feminist female author using a male pseudonym? This I had to buy and read, though I had to take it out of the shop in a brown paper bag in case anyone else had the same initial reaction to the book’s title as I did…So, future Nazis. Is this then going be a rehash of “The Man in the High Caste” or “Fatherland”? Oh look it also features a young chorister in the first chapter so maybe it’s also going to copy Kingsley Amis’s alternative future “The Alteration”. In fact the book is innocent of all these charges. Not only does its first publication date (1937) predate all the books I have just mentioned it even predates the start of World War Two. It was written in 1935 just at the moment that the Nazis had firmly established their powerbase in Germany and before the events of the war to come. This isn’t an alternative history, but rather a projection of what could have been. That projection is then used to explore the treatment and position of women in society and, to a lesser extent, look at organised religion. This really is worth a read if only for its historically unique SF viewpoint and the surprising areas it then tries to explore from that viewpoint....
