Heaven has no rage, like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury, like a woman scorned.

The quote above is from The Mourning Bride by William Congreve and it's the origin of the quote everyone is familiar with, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." The quote from Congreve has been misunderstood and changed. In a similar way the importance of women has been misunderstood and changed over the years. It's laughable for many people living now to believe that women are simply good for cleaning,
Wow, what a strange journey this book has taken. I remember when Hath No Fury was launched as a Kickstarter way back in 2016. It got caught up in the collapse of Ragnarok Publications, saw a few anticipated release dates go by, lost an editor, and then finally saw the light of day through Outland Entertainment.

I had landed an advance review copy in November of last year, and read it in anticipation of reviewing it for what was (at that point) an anticipated May release. When that got pushed out

Really interesting anthology with a diverse mix of essays, stories, and biographies. Will write a more extensive review later!

Very short story from the author, that promoted my purchase.

This rating is the average of all the ratings I assigned for the individual stories (and those ratings varied widely. I had some of each star ranking, from one to five, with most being about 3).

A few notes to begin with:
The blurb notes that the anthology contains "approximately 20 meaningful stories". There are actually thirty pieces here, and they include short biographies of historical women, creative nonfiction,

This is a compilation of short stories, the average score is 2.5 and I rounded down because between the stories that for the most part were ok where random article blurbs with a significant liberal slant. I dislike reading any fiction book with a political agenda or viewpoint, especially when it is so blatant. Also, short stories are hard to pick up because they have to build a diverse but understandable world, an interesting character, and explain things that are going on; as such some of these ...more

Anthologies are always tough to rate. No matter how many writers or stories you have, there are always going to be some that stand out above the rest. Unfortunately, in this particular anthology, the number of stories I loved was far smaller than I had hoped. This is particularly disappointing because I love female protagonists, especially angry female protagonists. I think my main problem with short stories is there’s just not enough time to delve into the nuances of female anger. As a result, ...more

I loved the fiction in this anthology and the idea behind it - to embrace our more powerful emotions, but it lost me in the other pieces of writing - such as the biographies. Maybe if it had been more organized, I totally understand the reasons behind it, but it was just a little stop and start to have larger pieces of fiction then small biographies

This is an eclectic anthology -- my favorite kind! -- filled with stories, history, essays revolving around greater representation. A few of the standout stories were Carol Berg's (the only flaw in the Book of Rowe was that it was not nearly long enough), Melanie Meadors's, Seanan McGuire's, and Monica Valentelli's essay. It's great, and a must have. ...more

A primarily fantasy or scifi collection of stories featuring strong women. Some are new spins on old stories, some offer dystopian futures, and some look at alternate pasts. Also included are essays on women of note and women's issues. ...more

This anthology was brilliant. Beautiful and bold stories about the strongest women in the most amazing roles. I don't know if I'll ever read another one like it. I hope to all the Gods they make more. Everyone, buy this book. Read this book. It will enhance everything about your reading life. ...more
I'll call this Mostly Read - and I'll likely go back over time & finish all the stories. Anthologies can be tough to rate/review, but I like the premise, many of these authors are faves, and I got it from my library. How terrific is that? ...more

The story is quite interesting, but probably will be revealed better in the future sequels (hope there are more)

Like all anthologies, there were some stories I loved, some I passed on. Overall, though, this was a fantastic anthology. Loved the smaller essays scattered throughout it as well. ^_^

Every story may not appeal to any single reader but some of them will. I am very happy this book exists; that it survived its challenges to be published.

Full review and more up on my blog:



I mean. I have reviewed quite a few anthologies this year, all of which tend to have some kind of theme and this was the first one where that theme called to me 100%. It’s no secret that I adore female characters and stories that are women centric. This was a wonderful addition to my reading schedule and I need everyone to read it.

I have to add that this is a fabulously diverse collection as well. It’s clear that
