Back Cover Copy

There is a sound that cannot be resisted.
Whether released in a whisper or a whirlwind,
to be seductive or vengeful, mysterious or the breaching cry of Armageddon,
it is the herald of the unstoppable, the invincible—it is the sound of woman...
...And it is magnificent.


Finally, a collection that crosses all boundaries, that covers all genres to bring you the greatest new stories about bold and triumphant women in the marketplace today. A beautiful young shapeshifter must decide where her loyalties belong: with the parents she never knew, or the man who may have killed them. A PR woman stands as the lone force against the Apocalypse. In a hardboiled sword-and-sorcery setting, murders must be solved, sometimes by the most unlikely of officers.

And that's just the beginning. Whether it's the last woman on Earth fighting to save what's left of civilization, or a flashy East Coast gal trying to save her gaming pals from a murder rap, this is the collection for you!

Editors Henderson and Thomas have gathered best-sellers like the irrepressible Keith R.A. DeCandido, Bram Stoker award-winners such as the gracious Linda D. Addison, along with a host of today's finest established writers and one incredible young lady making her print debut in this volume!

So, whether your bag is fantasy or mystery, horror or science fiction, if you're looking for the best collection of stories about cool dames who are extra tough and don't take no guff, then join Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Linda D. Addison, Michael Amorel, James Chambers, Keith R.A. DeCandido, John L. French, Bruce Gehweiler, C.J. Henderson, Gerard Houarner, R. Allen Leider, Edward J. McFadden III, K.T. Pinto, Diane Raetz, John Sunseri, and Patrick Thomas as they bring you an absolute treasure trove of the best, knock-your-stockings-off fiction written about the fairest sex in years!
