About the Author

Elisabeth Waters sold her first story in 1980 to Marion Zimmer Bradley for The Keeper’s Price, the first of the Darkover anthologies. She went on to sell dozens of short stories to a variety of anthologies. Her first novel, a fantasy called Changing Fate, was awarded the 1989 Gryphon Award. She is working on a sequel to it, in addition to her short-story writing and editing the Sword and Sorceress anthology series. She has also worked as a supernumerary with the San Francisco Opera, where she appeared in La Gioconda, Manon Lescaut, Madama Butterfly, Khovanshchina, Das Rheingold, Werther, and Idomeneo. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is a pretty standard entry in this series, and since I've enjoyed this series enough to still be reading it at entry 25, that says something, I suppose. For those of you who have followed the series all along, or even who have simply read one or more of the previous entries, all I need say is that this book holds up well to its predecessors. For those who are new to the series, this is a collection of short stories in the heroic fantasy genre in which each story centers on a female character. That does not mean that there are no men in the stories, or that all of the authors are women. It simply means that the primary character is female. There is no reason to feel that you can't read this book until you've read the previous 24 books; most of the stories are one-shots, and even those that continue the stories of characters established in previous anthologies give enough backstory to be perfectly understandable without having read the previous stories. Not to say that the previous anthologies aren't worth reading; they are. But there's no particular reason to have to read them chronologically.

Elizabeth Waters is a worthy successor to Marion Zimmerman Bradley. The Sword and Sorceress series ALWAYS has good stories You may not enjoy everyone of them; but there's no doubt every reader will find several to their taste. Well worth buying - not only for those stories but for the opportunity to discover new authors. To paraphrase (and I promised myself that I wouldn't) this anthology 'is like a box of chocolates'...Happily there are very few chocolates that I don't like!
Enjoy!

I'm hooked. What else can I say? As far as I know, I have all of them. Just recently found out they had continued to publish yearly.

Love the editor's choices. A bit lighter fare than when MZB was editing, but that suits me just fine.

Sword and Sorceresses XXV is another in the great collections of stories that began under Marion Zimmer Bradley's editorship with women as the main character/s. Women are shown as being able make as good decisions as men and also defend themselves when necessary. This volume brings together both old and new authors with many fine tales in varied settings. I highly recommend it to any reader of SF&F.
