A Dangerous Delivery

Ashford
The women are coming, and they're armed and dangerous.

Gardner Dozois and I have just delivered our latest massive crossgenre anthology, DANGEROUS WOMEN (originally FEMMES FATALE), to our editors at Tor. This one is our biggest yet... yes, even more massive that WARRIORS (though still well short of the length my fantasy writers), with another all-star lineup of bestselling and award-winning contributors.

The table of contents will look like this:

INTRODUCTION, by Gardner Dozois
SOME DESPERADO, by Joe Abercrombie
MY HEART IS EITHER BROKEN, by Megan Abbott
NORA’S SONG, by Cecelia Holland
THE HANDS THAT ARE NOT THERE, by Melinda Snodgrass
BOMBSHELLS, by Jim Butcher
RAISA STEPANOVA, by Carrie Vaughn
WRESTLING JESUS, by Joe R. Lansdale
NEIGHBORS, by Megan Lindholm
I KNOW HOW TO PICK ‘EM, by Lawrence Block
SHADOWS FOR SILENCE IN THE FORESTS OF HELL, by Brandon Sanderson
A QUEEN IN EXILE, by Sharon Kay Penman
THE GIRL IN THE MIRROR, by Lev Grossman
SECOND ARABESQUE, VERY SLOWLY, by Nancy Kress
CITY LAZARUS, by Diana Rowland
VIRGINS, by Diana Gabaldon
HELL HATH NO FURY, by Sherilynn Kenyon
PRONOUNCING DOOM, by S.M. Stirling
NAME THE BEAST, by Sam Sykes
CARETAKERS, by Pat Cadigan
LIES MY MOTHER TOLD ME, by Caroline Spector
THE PRINCESS AND THE QUEEN, by George R.R. Martin

The Abercrombie is set against his RED COUNTRY backdrop, the Holland gives us Eleanor of Aquitaine, Jim Butcher returns us to Harry Dresden's world, Lev Grossman contributes a tale of life at Brakebills, Steve Stirling revisits his Emberverse, Diana Gabaldon's story features Jamie Fraser of OUTLANDER fame, the Spector is a Wild Cards story featuring Hoodoo Mama and the Amazing Bubbles, and mine own contribution... well, it's some of that fake history I have been writing lo these many months, the true (mostly) story of the origins of the Dance of the Dragons. The stand-alone stories, not part of any series, feature some amazing work as well. For those who like to lose themselves in long stories, the Brandon Sanderson story, the Diana Gabaldon story, the Caroline Spector story, and my "Princess and Queen" are novellas. Huge mothers.

This one took longer than we thought it would, mostly because of me (mea culpa), but Gardner and I think you'll find that it was worth the wait. Some terrific tales await you. No pubdate yet, of course... this bulletin is hot off the press... but as soon as we get word from Tor, you guys will be the first to know.

((Hurrah! Another monkey off my back!!))

Thank You!
I'm sure there are better ways and places of going about this but I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks. Words can not express how grateful I am for the countless hours of excitement and even torment I have experienced reading A Song of Ice and Fire. There were times where I literally had to set the book down and take time to process the enormity of what was happening and even times when I was brought to tears. To me there is no greater joy than slipping into a new hard back and traveling off to some distant world. I hadn't found a series where I was able to do that in quite a few years. You are truly an awe inspiring writer and I am so excited to begin reading more of your (not ASOIAF related) work.
Thank you so very much and take care ^_^
