Warrior Women
by Paula Guran


Overview - "Each story contains strength and compassion, even when the personal cost is high. The depictions of battle and trauma are rarely graphic, but they're as hard-hitting as the subject demands. This is a truly impressive accomplishment for Guran and her contributors." - Publishers Weekly (STARRED)

From fantastic legends and science fictional futures come compelling tales of powerful women-or those who discover strength they did not know they possessed-who fight because they must, for what they believe in, for those they love, to simply survive, or who glory in battle itself.  Read more...

"Each story contains strength and compassion, even when the personal cost is high. The depictions of battle and trauma are rarely graphic, but they're as hard-hitting as the subject demands. This is a truly impressive accomplishment for Guran and her contributors." - Publishers Weekly (STARRED)

From fantastic legends and science fictional futures come compelling tales of powerful women-or those who discover strength they did not know they possessed-who fight because they must, for what they believe in, for those they love, to simply survive, or who glory in battle itself. Fierce or fearful, they are courageous and honorable-occasionally unscrupulous and tainted-but all warriors worthy of the name.

Join bestselling authors, Elizabeth Bear, Nancy Kress, George R. R. Martin, Elizabeth Moon and many others as they celebrate the STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST in what Publishers Weekly calls an "epic anthology."

Two dozen stories of women warriors form this epic anthology of stories about those forced to fight, those who chose to fight regardless of odds, those who ran from their destiny as warriors, and those who will end war at any cost. In Caitlín R. Kiernans The Sea Trolls Daughter, the titular daughter of a fearsome beast reluctantly confronts the woman who slew her father. In Carrie Vaughns nonspeculative The Girls from Avenger, a WWII pilot tries to determine the cause of her friends mysterious crash. An immortal wandering warrior meets an immortal prisoner in George R.R. Martins hopeful but bleak The Lonely Songs of Laren Dorr. Spaceship captain Tory Sabin must battle bureaucracy and physics to locate a missing friend in The Application of Hope by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. The warriors include girls as well as grown women: young Thien Bao is offered the chance to end a cataclysmic war at an unimaginable cost in Aliette de Bodards The Days of the War, as Red as Blood, as Dark as Bile, and a girl who discovers her father is a monster grows into a woman who tries to save others from his fate in Ken Lius In the Loop. Each story contains strength and compassion, even when the personal cost is high. The depictions of battle and trauma are rarely graphic, but theyre as hard-hitting as the subject demands. This is a truly impressive accomplishment for Guran and her contributors. Agent: Jennifer Jackson, Donald Maass Literary Agency. (Dec.)
