Synopses & Reviews
One good turn deserves another and those unpredictable amazons are back, swords sharpened, chainmail polished, and makeup in place, ready to fight the good fight on the field of battle (and also on the bookstore shelves). And if you think they're just male wish-fulfillment fantasies, you'd better say it under your breath and out of their earshot, because these barbarian babes were born to battle. All new adventures of fearless women warriors by Eric Flint, author of 1632; Nebula-winning author Harry Turtledove; Jody Lynn Nye, co-author of the best selling The Ship Who Won; Campbell Award-winner Wen Spencer, and many more, including the inimitable Esther Friesner herself, as fantasy adventure takes a turn for the lighter side.
In this new compilation of rambunctious yet humorous adventures penned by some of fantasy's top writers, Nebula Award winner Friesner brings back those unpredictable amazons with their swords sharpened, chainmail polished, and makeup in place.
