Product Description: Here they come, and they're out for blood. For too long, they say, have hot blooded babes in brass bras and chain link bikinis been held up to scorn as the embodiment of male fantasy wish-fulfillment and non-fictionality. You think their swords won't cut, their clubs won't crush? You think they look cute?
It's time to take sword-swinging amazons more seriously. Well, maybe not too seriously. After all, the popular Chicks in Chainmail series wasn't known for stark drama and solemn think-pieces. In fact, they made a lot of people laugh. And now the first three books in the series are combined in one attractively-priced Omni-Trade Paperback volume.
Chicks in Chainmail (The look at the lighter side of amazons that started it all.), Chicks 'n Chained Males (Those men just can't take care of themselves, so send in the amazons!)
It's all right to have a laugh or two. The swordswomen like a good laugh as much as the next amazon. Just don't let them get the idea that you're laughing at them, instead of with them—if you know what's good for you . . .
Stories of fierce female fighters by Harry Turtledove, Roger Zelazny, Elizabeth Moon, Jan and S.M. Stirling, K. D. Wentworth, Lawrence Watt-Evans and more—including Esther Friesner herself.
