Commissioned by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, these tales
of dangerous women by the most stellar names in fiction are
available for the first time in three-volume paperback. George R.R.
Martin is the bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the
inspiration for HBO's hit series GAME OF THRONES. This third volume
features an original short story by Joe Abercrombie. 'Some
Desperado' centres on Shy South, the protagonist of Abercrombie's
novel RED COUNTRY. Having robbed a bank, Shy is carrying 2,000
silver pieces, and she's on the run when her horse catches an
arrow. Marooned in a dusty ghost town, she faces up to a trio of
murderous, flea-bitten criminals...This volume of stories about
hard-living bad girls, killers and superheroes also includes
contributions from worldwide bestselling authors Jim Butcher,
Melinda Snodgrass and Pat Cadigan.
