From Library Journal
One of the strongest collections of fantasy short stories continues to live up to its well-deserved reputation as 26 veteran and untried authors deliver variations on the woman-as-hero theme. Highlights include Diana L. Paxson's tale of a gladiator's final battle ("Stopthrust"), Elizabeth Waters's comic look at both sides of a magical gift ("The Birthday Gift"), and Josepha Sherman's story of a bird-woman's fear of being tamed ("Red Wings"). Consistently good storytelling makes this a worthwhile purchase for most fantasy collections.

Incidentally, the cover painting here is my favorite so far of those on these anthologies: a 3/4 portrait of a female warrior against an Alhambra-like backdrop--proud, competent-looking, and sword-edged handsome. (The artist is David Cherry, who may be worth seeking out elsewhere.)
