Summary
  • "Dangerous women was conceived as a cross-genre anthology, one that would mingle every kind of fiction, so we asked writers from every genre--science fiction, fantasy, mystery, historical, horror, paranormal romance, men and women alike--to tackle the theme of Dangerous Women... here you'll find no hapless victims who stand by whimpering in dread while the male hero fights the monster or clashes swords with the villain..."--Jacket
  • "All new and original to this volume, the 21 stories in Dangerous Women include work by twelve New York Times bestsellers, and seven stories set in the authors' bestselling continuities--including a new "Outlander" story by Diana Gabaldon, a tale of Harry Dresden's world by Jim Butcher, a story from Lev Grossman set in the world of The Magicians, and a 35,000-word novella by George R. R. Martin about the Dance of the Dragons, the vast civil war that tore Westeros apart nearly two centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones. Also included are original stories of dangerous women--heroines and villains alike--by Brandon Sanderson, Joe Abercrombie, Sherilynn Kenyon, Lawrence Block, Carrie Vaughn, S. M. Stirling, Sharon Kay Penman, and many others."--
