"I am a woman between worlds. Civilian and military. Seamstress and soldier. The Grande Armée I serve stands between tradition and merit. France itself between republic and monarchy. I stand between comfort and a wall of iron. Between progress and the world of dragons. Between grief and freedom."
--Blake Jessop, "Cuirassiere"

No one understands leadership like those who have

So when a dude with a love of strong female leads (that's me) gets a chance to review a book named Battling in All Her Finery: Historical Accounts of Otherworldly Women Leaders he takes it. I mean, why not right? If it's what I love and someone is going to give it to me, why wouldn't I take it? I'd have to be stupid to turn down a chance like that. I'm glad I took the chance too, because I really enjoyed this anthology.


I'll get into the individual stories in a minute but I just wanted to include

So many amazing stories that I would read if they were turned into full novels.

The editors of this collection are friends of mine, and I was a Kickstarter backer of this book as well as their previous four collections, so perhaps I'm a bit biased. But I have to say I thought this is their strongest collection yet. The previous anthologies were themed by situation (apocalypse, haunted/weird locations, "monsters" in society, ...), but since this collection's theme is women leaders, there is a breadth of style and genre I haven't seen in these before, and it's delightful.

I'm in this anthology but am trying not to let it sway my opinion.

I forgot to make notes as I read, but I loved so many of the stories! Disabled people in an apocalyptic society, a group of time travelers' forgotten companions, imaginary friends and mythical creatures!
Some didn't super-duper grab my attention, and I skimmed them. No fault of the authors. Just not my thing, you know?
I only skipped one story entirely, for using the word "cr*pple," not in a "disabled person reclaiming the word" way

**Disclaimer: I do have a story in this collection, so I'm not exactly unbiased. I recently promised myself to read every anthology I have to good fortune to be a part of and I'm glad I did.

Mad Scientist Journal's Battling In All Her Finery is a delight, eclectic collection of women kicking butt throughout time and space.

The stories range from somber, to epic, to hilarious, to thrilling, and more. The book's art is wonderful and the layout is great as well. Very proud to be part of this anthol
