    These were very good short stories about strong women in difficult situations Very well written by first class authors from many genres Some stories are from established universes, and others are standalone tales The only real disappointment is that almost all of the stories were sad, with the endings being just a little less sad.Note some of the stories are

    This review is based only on the following stories.The Girls from Avenger by Carrie Vaughn This one made me sad, mostly because a man s ego caused great harm I was glad that Em found out what happened, just wish the guy was punished.Dying with her Cheer Pants On by Seanan McGuire This author does horror in a way to make it seem real I like the idea that the girls came

    So I only really liked about three stories in the entire anthology The very first one I read Northern Chess by Paula Guran I loved the ending I can t help but chuckle view spoiler even if it s a total trope now that a woman can succeed where a man can t due to the wording of a curse Or you know having someone actually named Nobody or No Man hide spoiler I liked that Jaisel cou

    This felt like an older anthology, but I recognized a lot of the authors in it, and I was excited to see a sci fi anthology centered on war but starring women The book is divided into five sections Swords Spears Arrows Axes and Sorcery focuses on thestandard fantasy warriors knights, and mages, and the like in fantasy worlds The next section, Just Yesterday Perhaps Just Beyond Tomorrow, is closer to contemporary

    This book was terrible It s an anthology, but I couldn t get through it even so The preface was extensive, and basically stated, in a very long winded way, that the editor personally picked out stories that exemplified strong women Sounds good Story one Lame Seemed well written, with a kick butt warrior woman taking on a necromancer s castle when an entire cadre of male knights had failed Unfortunately, it was all a set up for the old onl
