Very fun collection of short stories. There are some real gems in this book. ( )
  Carmentalie | Jun 4, 2022 |
Skemmtilegt smásögusafn. Þrátt fyrir heitið hættulegar konur fjalla sögurnar í raun fyrst og fremst um snjallar og úrræðagóðar konur, stundum skaðræðisgripi en einnig hetjur. Fjölbreytnin er mikil, allt frá fantasíum og vísindaskáldsögum til sagnfræðilegra skáldverka. Stundum er sögurnar í fyrstu persónu en einnig eru söguhetjurnar aðrar og oft karlar sem glíma við sterkar kvenpersónur. Ekki var verra að kynnast sögupersónum sem mér voru að góðu kunnar úr öðrum sagnabálkum þótt þar hefðu þær stundum verið í aukahlutverki. ( )

A good collection of short stories, but you may want to be aware of the following:

1) When I saw names like Sanderson, Martin, and Butcher on the cover, I was expecting a fantasy collection. While there is some fantasy, you will also find sci-fi, coming-of-age, historical, neo-noir, and more. There is enough variety to almost guarantee that any given person will absolutely loathe at least one story and be wholeheartedly meh on at least one other. Abercrombie even magnificently breaks genre to produce a Western short that I enjoyed tremendously despite having no real interest in that style. If you strictly want fantasy, you are going to be disappointed.

2) Here there be spoilers. No, not the A Song of Ice and Fire novella "The Princess and the Queen, or, the Blacks and the Greens." That is a history of the war known as the Dance of the Dragons. However, you don't even want to read the introduction to Jim Butcher's "Bombshell" if you are not up-to-date on The Dresden Files.You might also want to skip Diana Gabadon's "Virgins" as it has something to do with her Outlander series. I'm not 100% about that, however. I didn't finish the story and am unfamiliar with the series because I don't like romance.

3) There are also stories that contain triggers for victims of sexual assault. They are good stories, but I'll put the titles in a spoiler tags just in case someone needs to skip those. S.M. Sirling's "Pronouncing Doom" and Carolina Spector's "Lies My Mother Told Me." ( )
