    An extremely strong collection with much to recommend in it. Salmonson had a laser-like focus on exactly what she wanted, but her attitude bled through at points. Her assertive views about the state of heroic fantasy at the time--testosterone-drenched pastiche--eventually sounded like a chip on her shoulder."Wolves of Nakesht" sketches a wide world and backstory without providing details. Why is Chimquar here? Who are her enemies and why do they team up against her? Who are her wards? These ques [...]

    This collection of 13 fantasy stories centered on female heroes was groundbreaking in 1979 when it was published. I loved it when I discovered it in my teens--pre-Buffy, there were few stories of adventure with strong female heroines. This held up well. Indeed, the only story I didn't enjoy at all was the one with the most celebrated names--a piece of juvenalia by Emily Bronte edited by Joanna Russ. Russ is even one of the names featured on the cover, but she only contributes a precis of the sto [...]

    A collection of stories about s, mostly by female writers. Andre Norton and C. J. Cherryh are the biggest names here, but my favorite story was "Morrien's Bitch" by Janet Fox.

    I read this when first came out, but I wasn't as enamoured with it this time as I was in 1980. For my money Tanith Lee won, and CJ Cherryh came in second. Salmonson considers the tragic last tale "The woman who loved the moon to be the jewel in the crown." I don't have enough 'cares' to ponder why. To paraphrase Yoda, "so much anger, so much hate"

    The title should have been Agency!Titling it "s!" created the fundamental challenge with this anthology: the word "amazon" means too many different things to different people. Your enjoyment of this book will depend largely on how flexible your concept of "an " is.Is an a skilled fighting woman from a society contemporary with ancient Greece? If so, none of these stories match what you have in mind.Is an amazon a member of a matriarchal, possibly all-female, society? If so, the story "The Wolve [...]

    Along with some familiar names (C.J. Cherryh, Tanith Lee, Andre Norton, Joanna Russ) some less well-known ones in an anthology which still holds up some 34 years later. The stories range from modern day I'm-not-sure-how-to-classify-it (Michelle Belling's "The Rape Patrol") to African fantasy quest (Charles Saunders' "Agbewe's Sword") to an espionage-flavored subversion of quest (Josephine Saxton's "The Travails of Saint Jane"). There's humor of various flavors, gentleness, fury, and determinatio [...]

    Another teenager favourite, this is a sampler of female hero fantasy, from authors as diverse as Bronte to currently big name writers. Not everything here is good, but as a product of the eighties, this, along with works like the Sword and Sorceress Anthologies, were groundbreaking efforts to get female protagonists properly respected in the genre. I'm probably giving it more stars than it deserves, as much of the stuff here has a touch of the experimental and some of the stories are by now bog [...]

    This was a pretty good anthology; the stories ranged from great to mediocre, but it was one of the first of its kind. Today there are lots and lots of strong female heroines even in the S&S genre, but at the time this anthology came out, they were still pretty rare (Red Sonja aside).

    This book introduced me some of my all time favorite authors!!

    Grace
    Great characterizations (especially considering this book came out in 1979) but I thought the stories themselves were only so-so.

    This was a good one. Five stories have three or above ticks from me, which indicates great enthusiasm. Even outside of those five, there is Charles R. Saunders, writer of African-themed fantasy, who here gives us the woman Dossouye; and a narrative poem by Emily Bronte, edited from her manuscripts by Joanna Russ. s 2 didn't match up the quality of selections here.

    There were a couple completely bizarre stories in here and a couple of boring stories as well, but there were also some really great ones. Mostly the stories by authors I recognized were the good ones and the bad ones came from authors I've never heard of. Overall things kind of balanced out to about average. That's kind of the nature of anthologies though. One disappointing thing is that despite being touted as a contributor on the front cover, Joanna Russ' piece is actually just some commentar [...]

    Bought for a quarter in a second hand store. Worth a lot more, though the language has dated a little. Deffo good and interesting, though the first story (primarily a love story) is a little offputting. The end additional reading looks pretty amazing too.

    Oh my goodness, this is a blast from the past. I LOVED this book back in the day. When I was about 15. Such good stories, and I was super into short story collections. I must have gotten rid of the book in one of my drives to become a person with less stuff. I sort of wish I still had it!

    Emily Crow
    As I recall, there was some really good stories in this one.
