All new and basic to this supply, the 21 stories in Perilous Women take in calling by 12 New York Times best sellers, and seven stories set in the authors’ best-selling continuities — including a new «Outlander» report by Diana Gabaldon, a lie of Harry Dresden’s times a deliver by Jim Cutthroat, a report from Lev Grossman set in the times a deliver of The Magicians, and a 35,000-little talk novella by George R. R. Martin about the Romp of the Dragons, the huge public war that tore Westeros apart nearly two centuries before the events of A Artifice of Thrones.

Also included are basic stories of perilous women — heroines and villains similar — by Brandon Sanderson, Joe Abercrombie, Sherilynn Kenyon, Lawrence Barricade, Carrie Vaughn, S. M. Stirling, Sharon Kay Penman, and many others.

Writes Gardner Dozois in his introduction, «Here you’ll get no hapless victims who allow by whimpering in terror while the manly star fights the brute or clashes swords with the villain, and if you want to tie these women to the railroad tracks, you’ll get you have a honest contend with on your hands. Instead, you will get sword-wielding women warriors, audacious women fighter pilots and far-ranging spacewomen, harmful female serial killers, appalling female superheroes, sly and circe femmes fatale, female wizards, involved-living bad girls, female bandits and rebels, embattled survivors in advertise-apocalyptic futures, female covertly investigators, unremitting female hanging judges, la-de-da queens who resolve nations and whose jealousies and ambitions send thousands to appalling deaths, intrepidity dragonriders, and many more.»
