Many human cultures and races appear in this collection, represented by lots of resilient female characters. Always nice to see in speculative fiction!

This collection of 20 sci-fi/fantasy stories gives you a good short read when you want an escape from the mundane. They are all different, rather than a series and I enjoyed the variety and the imaginative characters.
