A collection of short stories that challenge the traditional image of female fighters in the fantasy genre. From the title, this is obviously handled rather tongue-in-cheek.
As with most short story collections, this is a mixed bag. Some good, some indifferent. I didn't feel there were any *bad* stories in the collection, but none of them stood out in my mind, with one exception. "On the Road of Silver," by Mark Bourne struck a note with me, though I'm not sure I could tell you why. Perhaps because I could identify with how all of the little frustrations in life can build up. At any rate, this is a rather fun and quick read, even if parts are somewhat forgettable.
