Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

A king's cousin uses her magic and her blade to fight a devastating plague and the creature responsible for it in David Smeds's "Morsel for the Plague Queen," while in Resa Nelson's "Black Magic," a young woman disguises herself as a boy in order to experience life at sea and discovers more than she expected. Along with 17 other original stories featuring strong women warriors and wizards, this 23rd collection of stories begun by the late Marion Zimmer Bradley brings together veteran and new authors in a volume that belongs in most fantasy collections.

Introduction

I had forgotten how much fun it was to edit SWORD & SORCERESS. Of course, the last time I did it, I was doing three volumes at once while coping with Marion Zimmer Bradley's death, and nothing in my life was much fun at that point.

It was great to see how many of "MZB's writers" submitted stories to this anthology. I wish I could have bought stories from all of them, but by now there are over 300 of them, and we're trying to maintain Marion's goal of discovering new writers as well as publishing stories by established ones. Trying to maintain a balance between old and new writers and between swords and sorcery makes selecting a final line-up a real challenge. In the end, what I looked for most was originality. I still had to send back some stories I would have loved to keep, so I'm really hoping we'll be doing another volume next year.

Marion started training me to edit these with SWORD & SORCERESS 4, and I've worked on just about every one since. I miss her advice and support, but I spent two decades in her company, so her voice still lingers in my head. I hope she would be proud of this book. I know she would be glad that her legacy still continues.
