Her Smoke Rose Up Forever

Her Smoke Rose Up Forever by James Tiptree, Jr (Arkham House, 1990) SF Masterworks Edition (Gollancz, 2014) A 500-page collection of dark, dreamy, dense, often dismal short stories. Tiptree (aka Alice Sheldon) wrote challenging SF that juxtaposed male POVs with uncensored, damning depictions of how men treat women. Plenty of big ideas. Highly regarded though not always pleasant reading.
