Synopsis

Tiptree- and Sturgeon-nominated Novelette

Imagine a race of marsupial-like aliens who have not two, but three sexes: father, birth-mother, and nurture-mother. The difficulties of married life are further complicated by adding another partner, but this culture has worked out its own unique solution. The arrival of a new race of space-faring aliens, however, will change everything.

This story was first published in Asimov's Science Fiction in June 1998, later collected in Isaac Asimov's Mother's Day (2000), Strange But Not a Stranger (2002), Infinity Plus: The Anthology (2007) and Masters of Science Fiction: James Patrick Kelly (2016).
