Dangerous Women

Product Description

.com Review
-----------

An Best Book of the Month, December 2013: The sci-fi and fantasy genre is known for going big: epic
series, massive tomes, epic series comprised of massive tomes. And even here, short stories--21 original tales in
total--combine to form a tremendous 800-page genre-crossing collection. Co-editor George R.R. Martin contributes a story
set in Westeros, nearly 200 years before A Game of Thrones begins. Likewise, other authors offer glimpses into their
signature worlds. Jim Butcher gives the Dresden Files a twist by focusing on his protagonist's assistant. Lev Grossman
hones in on a group of girls at the wizarding school that's central to The Magicians. Diana Gabaldon, Brandon Sanderson,
Megan Lindholm... A range of fantastic writers, both male and female, offer an equally exciting range of ways to talk
about "Dangerous Women"--from an unlikely bounty hunter to a gunslinger, a mother accused of the unthinkable to a young
princess on the run. Dangerous Women is perfect for clamoring fans, as well as new readers, who may find these
bite-sized stories an undaunting way to get to know new authors. --Robin A. Rothman ( http://www..com/gp/feature.html?docId=1001046481 )

----------------------------------------------------

Dangerous women of all kinds—warriors, fighter pilots, queens, wizards, PIs, and more—are the subject of
this cross-genre anthology, curated by experienced editors Martin and Dozois. Several high-profile authors set stories
in the worlds of their best-selling series. Molly, Harry Dresden’s smart-talking, long-suffering apprentice, narrates
Jim Butcher’s urban-fantasy detective story “Bombshells.” Lev Grossman’s wry tale follows a young wizard-in-training as
her innocent prank against a fellow Brakebills student misfires in “The Girl in the ­Mirror.” Martin’s prequel story is
set in Westeros centuries before A Game of Thrones, while Diana Gabaldon’s follows a young Jaime Fraser before the start
of the Outlander series. Other tales range from hard-bitten western (Joe Abercrombie’s “Some Desperado”) to bleak
dystopia (Nancy Kress’ “Second Arabesque, Very Slowly”) to historical drama (Sharon Kay Penman’s “A Queen in Exile”).
Some tales defy classification, such as Megan Lindholm’s poignant but fierce story of aging and discovering new life in
the fringes. With 21 stories of this caliber, readers will be sure to find several favorites. --Krista Hutley
