Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From Janet Berliner's elegant version of a Zulu folktale ("Marimba: A Retelling") to Esther Friesner's comic portrayal of a warrior princess's determined escape from an unwanted suitor ("Twelve-Steppe Program"), the 20 original stories in this collection pay tribute to the sword-wielding, self-empowered heroines of fantasy and legend. Including contributions by Morgan Llywelyn, John Helfers, Tanya Huff, Jane Yolen, and other genre veterans, this volume belongs in most libraries' fantasy or short story collections.
