Turn the Other Chick is the fifth book in the Chicks in Chainmail series edited by Esther Friesner. The book is a collection of 22 short stories by fantasy authors (including one by the editor) that almost all involve at least three elements: a chick (er, woman), chainmail (or other body armor), and adventure with the chick wearing said chainmail. Most of the stories are told tongue-in-cheek, with some more entertaining and coherent than others. My favorites are as follows:
The Girl's Guide to Defeating the Dark Lord by Cassandra Claire - Being kidnapped by a Dark Lord can have a happy ending.
The Gypsy Queen by Catherine H. Shaffer - Transgendered barbarian swordspersons find true love.
Over the Hill by Jim C. Hines - Grandma Guardswoman isn't ready to retire just yet.
Defender of the Small by Jody Lynn Nye - Be kind to your small fury friends.
This book was a light read, yet it took me longer than usual to finish because the majority of the stories were just so-so. My favorite was Defender of the Small by Jody Lynn Nye. It had a few laughs, but not as many as I was hoping for.
collection of amusing stories playing with the idea of the warrior woman--the Xena the Warrior Princess or Buffy the Vampire Slayer type. Some of the stories are pretty slight, but the collection as a whole is a fast, relaxing read
