5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her new collection, Story Prize finalist Maureen F. McHugh delves into the dark heart of contemporary life and life five minutes from now and how easy it is to mix up one with the other. Her stories are post-bird flu, in the middle of medical trials, wondering if our computers are smarter than us, wondering when our jobs are going to be outsourced overseas, wondering if we are who we say we are, and not sure what we'd do to survive the coming zombie plague
Mission child by Maureen F McHugh( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young Janna has lived her fourteen years on the icy northern plains of a world that has forgotten its history. Now the arrival of Earthers -- descendants of the humans who first settled the planet many centuries before -- has violently upset the fragile balance of a developing civilization. The offworlders' advanced technologies and cruel indifference to local life have brought despair and destruction to Janna's home, robbing her of family, husband, child, and self. Haunted by a dead past -- mysteriously altered by the gift of three alien artifacts -- Janna must now redefine herself on a devastated planet she no longer recognizes, as she embarks upon a remarkable, transcendent journey into an uncertain future; moving steadily through this strange new world toward a startling realization about her role in the great cosmic order
Nekropolis by Maureen F McHugh( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is life in the Nekropolis but no future. Hariba spent her youth here, among the exquisite paper flower wreaths her mother meticulously constructed, playing contentedly with other children around the rows and rows of old buildings housing the crumbling bones of the dead. But when an older brother's criminal indiscretion robbed Hariba of any possibility of a husband, she agreed to have herself "jessed", submitting to the technobiological process designed to render her docile and subservient to whomever has purchased her service. In this way, Hariba could escape the confinement of her surroundings and hopelessness of her fate though she could never again be truly free."--Jacket

Mothers & other monsters : stories by Maureen F McHugh( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 13 stories in McHugh's debut collection offer poignant and sometimes heartwrenching explorations of personal relationships and their transformative power. In "Presence," a woman helps her husband through an experimental therapy for his Alzheimer's disease and, by the story's end, is less his spouse than a nurturing mother to his developing personality. "In the Air" bridges three generations with its account of the different emotions a woman wrestles with as she anxiously tracks her wandering senile mother and her rebellious teenage daughter by means of biologically implanted homing devices. "Laika Comes Back Safe" represents so believably the feelings two school friends share about their lives in dysfunctional families that the revelation that one occasionally transforms into a werewolf seems entirely within the realm of possibility. Whether writing an alternate Civil War history in "The Lincoln Train" or a tale of extraterrestrial anthropology in "The Cost to Be Wise," McHugh (Nekropolis) relates her stories as slices of ordinary life whose simplicity masks an emotional intensity more often found in poetry

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plugged In features two stories of feminist science fiction by WisCon 32 Guests of Honor L. Timmel Duchamp and Maureen McHugh. In ''Kingdom of the Blind, '' Sydney, one of the codemonekys who maintain DMS, the software system that keeps the physical plants of the Benevola Health Network running, suspects the recent outages in the system may be a sign of the system's sentience rather than due to simple corruption of its code. Her fellow geeks view the reset button as a possible if drastic solution for restoring the system's integrity, but Sydney fears it might be a much too Final Solution. In L. Timmel Duchamp's ''The Man Who Plugged In, ''Howard Nies becomes the first male to plug into a Siemens Carapace. And as an ad in the February 2013 issue of The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology notes, the Siemens Carapace is ''a prenatal cradle of caring'' at the cutting edge of technology, ''made of the finest, strongest, most lightweight materials ever produced. Its clean, round lines and soft, silvery matte finish can t fail to reassure both the parents and the gestational carrier who wears it that the child within is getting better care and protection than any naturally gestated child''-- Amazon.com
