Sword and Sorceress XX ~~ Marion Zimmer Bradley

Sword and Sorceress XX by Marion Zimmer Bradley

Marion Zimmer Bradley led so many of us on the brilliant, fascinating, and endlessly inventive roads of her imagination. But though Marion was primarily known as a beloved best-selling author, she had a secret passion to edit. Here, in the pages of Sword and Sorceress, for over two•decades, she was able to bring her own personal fantasy to life -- discovering and publishing the first stories of many best-selling fantasy authors, including Mercedes Lackey and Jennifer Roberson. Here she sought stories of brave women who challenge the world around them, rising, whether with sword or spell, to claim heroic roles too often considered the exclusive province of men.

Join Diana L. Paxson, Deborah J. Ross, Phyllis Ann Karr, George Barr, Dorothy J. Heydt, and their fellow spellweavers in eighteen original stories personally chosen by the late Marion Zimmer Bradley where...

...A woman dying of a curse seeks her cure in the spirit realm, and reclaims a life far better than the one she had originally lived.

...A deal struck with a mermaid yields a far more valuable reward than mere immortality.

...A young woman is marked by the Element of Fire to be a warrior, yet she abhors violence. Will she be able to convince that fearsome Elemental that words can be her chosen weapon?

...A student sorceress who is unable to control or restrain her unusually powerful natural abilities finds out that even excess can have its uses.
