Turn the Other Chick - Chicks in Chainmail
Author: Esther Friesner
One good turn deserves another and those unpredictable amazons are back, swords sharpened, chainmail polished, and makeup in place, ready to fight the good fight on the field of battle (and also on the bookstore shelves). And if you think they're just male wish-fulfillment fantasies, you'd better say it under your breath where they can't hear yo...  more »

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.

One of Friesner's anthologies of short stories that are a humorous take-off on the cliches of scantily-clad sword-and-sorceress adventures. Enjoyable, but no real amazing standouts.
