Dangerous Women

October 11th, 2013

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but just a reminder that the GRRM and Gardner Dozois edited mammoth cross-genre anthology Dangerous Women is coming December 3rd, with stories not about safe men from me and, well, some other authors whose names you’re probably not that bothered about.  What?  You are bothered?  Alright, then – Jim Butcher, Diana Gabaldon, Lev Grossman, Robin Hobb, Sherrilynn Kenyon, Brandon Sanderson, Sharon Kay Penman, Carrie Vaughan, and many more. Oh, and some GRRM guy too:


Perhaps you’re looking for that perfect gift for a dangerous loved one this yuletide?  Problem SOLVED.  I haven’t read the other stories, but I can guarantee that mine, featuring an episode from the early career of Shy South, is DANGEROUS.  You could preorder the US edition somewhere around here (and I daresay from other outlets), and the UK edition over there.

    I am married to a dangerous woman.

    Apparently I already have it pre-ordered. It’s a good thing Amazon tells me that, or who knows how many copies I’d be absentmindedly ordering?

  • Morrigan says:

    I’m an unashamed, unapologetic GRRM fangirl, and I nodded absently at this post, until I read “early career of Shy South” and proceeded to rub my hand excitedly. What does this mean? I’m confused!

  • Patrick89 says:

    Shy South is the name of the main character in his last book, Red Country. Early career means, the story in Dangerous Women plays before it. Nothing to be confused about. I am excited to read it, too

  • Joe Abercrombie says:

    Yeah, what Patrick said.

  • AntMac says:

    When is the companion piece coming out?. Need I finish the thought?. 😛

  • De says:

    I shall add it to my wish list along with Red Country ( the only one I haven’t read yet) . I’m dangerous and therefore I’d better be opening both on Christmas morning! Hello Aoife take note!

  • Stephen says:

    Red Country is pretty much a Must. It makes one wonder why pretty much all Westerns aren’t done in a Fantasy setting.
