What do you get when some of the best women writers of genre fiction come together to tell tales of female strength? A powerful collection of science fiction and fantasy ranging from space operas and near-future factional conflict to medieval warfare and urban fantasy. These are not pinup girls fighting in heels; these warriors mean business. Whether keen combatants or reluctant fighters, each and every one of these characters was born and bred to Fight Like A Girl.

Two things that are close to my heart are women in fiction and women fighting, so this anthology is pretty much a perfect thing right out of the gate. Whether it’s in the cage, on the streets or on a spaceship, women can and will fight for survival, for those they love and for what they believe in. This collection explores the how and why of girls battling across a range of genres and cheerfully tramples all over female fiction archetypes, to which I say hurrah! – Adele Wearing, Fox Spirit Books.

Fight Like A Girl will be available from all good book retailers in March 2016.
