Women of War

About the Anthology

In the real world, many women are still struggling for equality, but science fiction and fantasy provide a stage for the portrayal of women who have come fully into their own. Here, a talented group of writers has taken up the challenge of creating strong, well-rounded female protagonists, more than able to defend themselves and take the helm-whether in space, on distant worlds, in our own future, or in fantasy realms where a civilization's fate hangs in the balance.

Jana’s Notes

My story, “The Last Hand of War” tells the tale of SauriLaana, the leader of the elite Castelon guard, who is forced to hunt down her young protégé because he has been bound to the spirit of a traitor.
