  2. Not a big fan of the anthology or this genre but my husband would love 21st Century Science Fiction whereas I'd lean more towards Dangerous Women.

  5. I'm with Jenny on the last one looking impressive but I saw some great names on that first anthology. Valente wrote the Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland Books. I'm not real familiar with the genre, but I'm getting more interested in it.

    Great giveaway! I love anthologies!

  17. I love reading anthologies as I find they are a fantastic way to introduce yourself to authors that you might not have chosen to read yourself. I have discovered several authors, who are now favourites, by reading anthologies but one stands out more that the rest and that is George R.R. Martin who I discovered after reading the Legends (I and II). This is a great giveaway by the way and I love your blog!
