Valor and strength can be attributes of women as well as men. Although fantasy tales demonstrating these truths were uncommon 25 years ago when Marion Zimmer Bradley put together the first in this anthology series, such stories still resonate today. This latest edition, Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress XXIV, features seventeen short stories from authors both new and well-known. The protagonists range from a wizard's long-suffering wife to a suddenly-orphaned princess, from scholar to secret agent, but all eventually find some way to surmount the obstacles or disasters in their lives. From official release/information:
From Press Release: Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress XXIV edited by Elisabeth Waters, the twenty-fourth volume of the classic fantasy anthology series featuring stories of powerful and remarkable women, both warriors and power-wielders, who bravely act to change their worlds with magic or sword or sheer willpower and inspiration.
