Norilana Books presents the first volume of an exciting new annual anthology series of science fiction featuring powerful and remarkable women. Explore the truth of what it means to be female, and discover the wisdom and the strength of a woman in a grand universe without limits. Far-ranging scientific speculation meets action and adventure, grand space opera, thrilling discovery, and intelligent protagonists...

""Warrior Wisewoman" combines stories of women in struggles that range across political, biological, social, and even military lines in a future variably far away...women who may or may not fight with weapons, but always strive for something beyond the fight. Inventive, unusual, these are stories to ponder over time...whether the reader agrees that the women are warriors, or wise, or that anyone can be both."
—Elizabeth Moon, author of "The Speed of Dark, Remnant Population, " and "The Deed of Paksenarrion"

"The stories in "Warrior Wisewoman" create new ways of looking at ideas, science fiction, and living itself at a time when we are all hungry for new thoughts expressed in new ways. The stories are austere, lyrical, and fuse science with ethics and emotion in a way that is very rare. If Le Guin's people who walked away from Omelas told us their stories, they would write like this."
—Susan Shwartz, author of "Hostile Takeover, Second Chances" and "Grail of Hearts;" editor of "Sisters in Fantasy
