Collaborators by Deborah Wheeler (that's me, writing under my former name) (Dragon Moon Press, 2013) has been honored by the James Tiptree Jr Award jury with inclusion on the "long list" of notable works. The awards are presented annually to works of science fiction or fantasy that explore and expand gender roles. Read more about them here.
The back cover copy reads:
When a crippled Terran spaceship makes landfall on an alien world...
The Terrans land, unaware that their advanced technology threatens the fragile balance of power for the native race. Aliens, for whom gender has a very different meaning and whose instincts can drive a crowd to madness.
