eBook by Elisabeth Waters

eBook Description: Women of Magic and Valor ... For over two decades, the late Marion Zimmer Bradley, best-selling and beloved author, discovered and nurtured a grand generation of popular and acclaimed authors including Mercedes Lackey, Jennifer Roberson, and a host of others. Authors who have appeared within the pages of Sword and Sorceress represent the full spectrum of some of the brightest talent working today--from C.J. Cherryh, Charles de Lint, and Emma Bull... to Laurell K. Hamilton, Diana L. Paxson, and. Deborah J. Ross. Here are sixteen original stories of powerful women, swashbuckling and magic, duels and spells, arcane sorcery and heroic sacrifice, written by familiar spell weavers of adventure and bright newcomers who are sure to become favorites.

"From Esther M. Friesner's heartfelt tale of a woman's choice to do right rather than uphold tradition ("Edra's Arrow") to Sarah Dozier's fiction debut about a unique way to end a war ("The Menagerie"), these 16 original stories demonstrate the unending variety of tales featuring women of might and magic. Including stories by Patricia B. Cirone, Robert E. Vardeman, T. Borregaard, Catherine Soto, and other both veteran and new genre authors, this well-balanced anthology edited by the late Marion Zimmer Bradley's longtime associate Waters belongs in most libraries."--Jackie Cassada, Asheville Buncombe Lib. Syst., NC--Library Journal, 10/15/2007


I had forgotten how much fun it was to edit SWORD & SORCERESS. Of course, the last time I did it, I was doing three volumes at once while coping with Marion Zimmer Bradley's death, and nothing in my life was much fun at that point.

It was great to see how many of "MZB's writers" submitted stories to this anthology. I wish I could have bought stories from all of them, but by now there are over 300 of them, and we're trying to maintain Marion's goal of discovering new writers as well as publishing stories by established ones. Trying to maintain a balance between old and new writers and between swords and sorcery makes selecting a final line-up a real challenge. In the end, what I looked for most was originality. I still had to send back some stories I would have loved to keep, so I'm really hoping we'll be doing another volume next year.

Marion started training me to edit these with SWORD & SORCERESS 4, and I've worked on just about every one since. I miss her advice and support, but I spent two decades in her company, so her voice still lingers in my head. I hope she would be proud of this book. I know she would be glad that her legacy still continues.
