The Hands That Are Not There, by Melinda Snodgrass
The Hands That Are Not There is another story that is only available in the Dangerous Women anthology. It's a bit of a throwback--exotic aliens conquered by humans, serving in low class positions. A highly class and gender conscious (and conservative) society. A story from the point of view of a fallen aristocrat, describing a threat from within. OK but a little clumsy, very spelled out like a not-that-ambitious TV script (Snodgrass writes for television). 2 stars from me.
