Gardner Dozois, from his introduction to Dangerous Women:

"Dangerous Women was conceived of 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, and that call was answered by some of the best writers in the business.... 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, and if you want to tie these women to the railroad tracks, you’ll find you have a real fight on your hands. Instead, you will find sword-wielding women warriors, intrepid women fighter pilots and far-ranging spacewomen, deadly female serial killers, formidable female superheroes, sly and seductive femmes fatale, female wizards, hard-living bad girls, female bandits and rebels, embattled survivors in postapocalyptic futures, female private investigators, stern female hanging judges, haughty queens who rule nations and whose jealousies and ambitions send thousands to grisly deaths, daring dragonriders, and many more."

Every story in this volume appears here for the first time. Included is a long novella by George R.R. Martin from the world of his Song of Ice and Fire series, telling the tale of the vast Targaryen civil war that was the original "Dance of the Dragons". Also included is a new Jim Butcher tale from the world of his wildly popular Harry Dresden novels; an original story by Lev Grossman about Brakebills, the school in his bestselling novels The Magicians and The Magician King; a new work by Diana Gabaldon about the early life of Jamie Fraser from her world-famous Outlander series; and original stories of powerful women from Megan Lindholm (known for her novels as “Robin Hobb”), Brandon Sanderson, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Joe Abercrombie, Sharon Kay Penman, Carrie Vaughn, Lawrence Block, and many others. It is a monumental collection of unforgettable work.
