A solid anthology of stories featuring female protagonists who conquer the odds, this volume didn't strike me as being as strong as some of the others ... it had some weaker stories, and fewer "wow" moments. That said, there were some strong tales, in particular Leslie Ann Miller's "Sun Dancer" - and both Marella Sand's "Tortoise Weeps" and Diana L. Paxson's "Twilight" came to life with their well-researched, deftly incorporated historical settings.

I think what struck me about this anthology is

This was the first edition of Sword and Sorceress that I'd ever read, and it didn't have a single story in it that I didn't like. It started me on the series, and I've read every one since. This one also contains two of my favorite short stories.

Notable stories include:

"Patience" by Jo Clayton.
"Spider's Offer" by Charles M. Saplak
"More than One Way" by Heather Rose Jones
"Jewel-Bright" by Stephanie D. Shaver

"Tortoise Weeps" by Marella Sands
"Personal Need" by Lynn Michals
Some stories were great and some were too short. I personally like a fleshed out story but these were great. Now I want to read the whole series. Marion Zimmer-Bradley is my favorite author.
No my favorite of the series. Most of the stories were just average even by some of my favorite old and new writers.
My mom has a story published in here. I loved some of the stories and didn't like others.
