Dragon Lords and Warrior Women

edited by Phyllis Irene Radford
$4.99 (Anthology) ISBN 978-0-98284-402-1

From the concrete canyons of the modern city to the halls of ancient kings, from deepest ocean to cosy homes in sprawling suburbs, nowhere and no one is immune to magic. But as many forms as magic takes, there always arrives a hero to accept the challenge, and sometimes, to pay the price.

The hearts and imaginations of some of today’s finest writers come together to create this one-of-a-kind collection.
