Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Waters ably continues the feminist anthology series founded by Bradley (1930–1999) to showcase short-form fantasy with a wide variety of heroic female characters. Of the 17 stories featured, standout selections include A Curious Case by Annclaire Livoti, a literary gem of a paranormal fantasy that pits a magic-practicing PI against a serial killer targeting succubae, and Julia H. West's Soul Walls, which brilliantly fuses magic, art and Native American mysticism. A disorganized wizard and his unhappy wife are at the heart of the charming Merlin's Clutter by Helen E. Davis, and a princess solves the mystery of her father's murder through a magical tapestry in Brenta Blevins's Material Witness. Though some of the selections are less than stellar, fantasy fans looking for original stories will find much to enjoy. (Dec.)

A very nice collection of short stories where the protagonists are female. I rather enjoy the unique way the various authors have of presenting their characters and the challenges they face.

I bought Sword and Sorceress I when I was in high school, and every year since. This is one of the best anthologies in the genre.
