Time to Fight Like a Girl

My good friends Jo Hall and Roz Clarke have a new book due out soon. It is called Fight Like a Girl, and it features women SF&F authors writing about woman warriors. Here’s the blub:

What do you get when some of the best women writers of genre fiction come together to tell tales of female strength? A powerful collection of science fiction and fantasy ranging from space operas and near-future factional conflict to medieval warfare and urban fantasy. These are not pinup girls fighting in heels; these warriors mean business. Whether keen combatants or reluctant fighters, each and every one of these characters was born and bred to Fight Like A Girl.

Featuring stories by Roz Clarke, Kelda Crich, K T Davies, Dolly Garland, K R Green, Joanne Hall, Julia Knight, Kim Lakin-Smith, Juliet McKenna, Lou Morgan, Gaie Sebold, Sophie E Tallis, Fran Terminiello Danie Ware, Nadine West

The launch event is in Bristol on Saturday. It promises to be even more spectacular that the event we put on for the Spark & Carousel launch at BristolCon. It will, after all, have a live swordplay demonstration. It will also have a discussion panel chaired by moi.

If you are in the area and would like to attend, tickets are available here (and include food).

And if you can’t, the book will be available from the usual places very soon.
