In a world where we all got filled in on the specifics of our genitals really well, it'd be an obvious question. But since most people don't, a lot of people have questions like this, all the time. It's no sweat, and there's no reason to feel foolish for asking.

Here is your vulva , the entirety of your external genitals. A lot of people call the vulva the vagina , because we were simply taught the wrong word for your genitals. If you need to understand more about what's what, click here . if you click on that link, you'll see another illustration which is a cross-section of the female pelvis, and on which you can see where the vagina really is.

As you can see -- or rather, as you CAN'T see -- your vagina is part of your internal reproductive anatomy. We can see the opening from outside, but that's it. Most of the vagina is a tubular muscle that runs from the vaginal opening to behind the cervix , deep inside your body.

In 2013, Paul McAuley completed The Quiet War sequence, one of the major hard science fiction series of the last decade. Something Coming Through , set in the same milieu as a recent slew of short stories, marks not only a new series of novels, but also a clear change in tone and direction. Whereas The Quiet War books were brooding space operas about massive conflicts across time and space set in the mid- to long-term future, Something Coming Through is a lighter, near-future thriller set just after first contact with aliens, which blends SF and police procedural elements with lashings of satire and pastiche.

McAuley very well could be an emissary from another planet. Over a long career he has imagined unlikely worlds with the uncanny ease of an alien prophet, to become one of the major hard science fiction writers working in the field today. Even if Something Coming Through feels like a minor work in his oeuvre when compared to landmarks of the genre such as Fairyland or The Quiet War series, it is still a considerable work that I would recommend to anybody interested in the contemporary state of science fiction. I, for one, will gladly seek passage on any intergalactic shuttle McAuley cares to pilot into the future.
