This felt like an older anthology but I recognized a lot of the authors in it and I was excited to see a sci fi anthology centered on war but starring women The book is divided into five sections; Swords Spears Arrows Axes and Sorcery focuses on the standard fantasy warriors knights and mages and the like in fantasy worlds The next section Just Yesterday Perhaps Just Beyond Tomorrow is closer to contemporary fiction with a story set during WWII and a drone pilot and then an alien invasion of Earth Somewhere Between Myth Possibility is like a combination of sci fi and fantasy; there are space ships and alternate dimensions and witches The fourth section is Space Aria and it is what it sounds like space opera Pretty straight sci fi It's the fifth section that has the most thought provoking pieces Will No War End All War centers stories about the cost of war And it's a little depressing to be honest It's a heavy topic so that's unsurprising but it left me in a low emotional place when I shut the bookWarrior Women is a really interesting book with twenty four different stories examining different aspects of war Some stories are told by soldiers some by scientists some by commanders some by the sisters and daughters of soldiers The book does a really good job of examining the subject from all angles I am eager to see what my husband as a former Marine thinks of the book I can't say that I enjoyed the book exactly but it gave me a LOT to think about And books that do that are just as important as escapist fantasyYou can find all my reviews at Goddess in the Stacks

From fantastic legends and science fictional futures come compelling tales of powerful women or those who discover strength they did not know they possessed who fight because they must for what they believe in for those they love to simply survive or who glory in battle itself Fierce or fearful they are courageous and honorable occasionally unscrupulous and tainted but all warriors worthy of the nameCONTENTSwords SorceryNorthern Chess by Tanith LeeAnukazi's Daughter. So I only really liked about three stories in the entire anthology The very first one I read Northern Chess by Paula Guran I loved the ending I can't help but chuckle view spoiler even if it's a total trope now that a woman can succeed where a man can't due to the wording of a curse Or you know having someone actually named Nobody or No Man hide spoiler
