I have this Seanan McGuire problem; she’s my favourite author, so of course I need to read everything she’s ever written. This is both a blessing (she’s so prolific!) and curse (she’s so prolific!).
So many of her short stories make their way into anthologies, so I wind up committing to read anthology after anthology when all I wanted to do was read some Seanan. Oftentimes I find the majority of the other stories in these anthologies disappointing. Thankfully this wasn’t the case here.
This anthology, with a theme of female empowerment, contains both fiction and non-fiction. While there were a few contributions where I felt like I could almost hear the author thinking, ‘Okay, so I know the point I want to make but how do I get from here to there?’, overall I was surprised by how much I found to love. Below are quotes from the contributions that either resonated with me the most or that I absolutely loved.
The New Girl by Alexandra Sokoloff
“Why doesn’t somebody do something about them?”
Welcome to the Sisterhood by Ellen Kirschman
““Edwin is a legacy,” he said. “Take what you need from him, leave the rest behind and move on.””
Look at the Water, How it Sparkles by Seanan McGuire
“If I told you that you could make everything good for this family forever, if you’d just agree to take a little walk one day, what would you say?”
Living Alone by Eric Beetner
“I can handle myself.”
Signs by Jess Lourey
“Whenever things get really bad in my life - really bad - I receive a sign that lets me know I’m not alone.”
The Elephant in the Room by Wendy Corsi Staub
““No tengas miedo. Estará bien.”
Don’t be afraid. It’ll be okay …”
Mother Church by Joshua Corin
“The spirit of a thing never wavers.”
The War Never Ends by Kate Thornton
“But nightmares you have at night are a lot different from the ones you have during the day.”
Wild Womb by Sandi Ault
““Never mind,” she said. “I’m a dead woman anyway.””
