21 original stories of Dangerous Women by top genre writers, brought together in a new anthology edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois.
Intrepid warriors, far-ranging spacewomen, formidable superheroines, hard-living Bad Girls, embattled survivors, private investigators, seductive femmes fatale and haughty queens; as Gardner Dubois writes in his introduction, 'if you want to tie any of these women to the railway tracks, you'll have a real fight on your hands!'
This thrilling collection features both standalone tales and familiar worlds and characters, including Joe Abercrombie's Red Country backdrop; Jim Butcher's world of Harry Dresden; Lev Grossman's Magicians; Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series; and a story by Caroline Spector in the Wild Cards shared universe.
Return to Westoros in The Princess and the Queen, a new novella from George R. R. Martin about the Dance of Dragons, a bitter civil war that divided the kingdom nearly two centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones.
