Description

A woman meets and begins a relationship with a man who, over the course of the story, becomes a woman. A full explanation is never given for the metamorphosis. The MTF character is unsurprised, and unconcerned, by the transformation, so we are left to suppose that s/he has changed before. When asked about the transformation, s/he offers only -- from hir point of view -- s/he has not changed; that the transormation is only perceptible to a "stationary observer", whence the title of the story (after the Doppler Shift: the apparent change in frequecy of radiation emitted my a moving source, as observed from a stationary frame of reference). Well written, and interesting. One of two Gender Chage stories in the collection (Mars Conjunct Venus, by Magdelene Meretrix is the other), the rest of the stories involve trans- or differently-gendered folks, but do not feature transformations.
