A wonderful anthology... I highly recommend Tanya Spackman' story, "Moon Fall". I am so glad I read this and I look forward to Volume 2!

This made a big splash on Kickstarter last year amongst those of us who like strong women in our spec fic, and it looked interesting enough for me to back it. I’ve had the book on my Kindle waiting for me for a few months and I finally got around to reading it this month.

I love the idea for this collection: a broad collection of sci-fi and fantasy stories about women, written and edited and designed by women. There were a wide variety of stories about a wide variety of women, which certainly kept things interesting. Stories ranged from military sci-fi to steampunk, from time travel to epic fantasy, from urban fantasy to fairy tales, from noir to ghost stories, and more. Not all the women were your typical “strong women” characters (aka action hero with a weapon), but all of them were effective protagonists in their own ways, and I appreciated that there was a lot more diversity represented than one typically finds in genre fiction. I really enjoyed the illustrations by Autumn Frederickson and Betsy Waddell for each story too.

Of the 22 stories in the collection, the ones that I appreciated the most were “White Dawn” by Nisi Shawl, in which animals previously kept as pets who have now been modified to talk go through moral debates over who is a person and what counts as intelligence; “Millie” by Janine K.

I had backed this anthology on Kickstarter, and was really excited by the concept. For me, the idea behind this book totally paid off - I thoroughly enjoyed reading these stories. I knew only a few of the authors by reputation prior to reading this, but not most of them. I was so impressed and delighted by the stories and the worlds they transported me to while I was reading that I have short-listed most of these authors for further reading. I was engaged and delighted by the characters I met in this book, and frequently lost myself wishing I was along on the adventures they were experiencing. The writing was top-notch, and I was pleased by the wide variety of people and points-of-view represented. But mostly, it was a crazy fun read, with unicorn hunters, fairies, pilots, military personnel, princesses, schoolchildren, and all sorts of amazing heroines.
