British Fantasy Award Winner in Best Collection category 2023.
Fifteen short speculative stories from author E.M. Faulds featuring female or female-coded protagonists.
Revenge. Resistance. Rebellion. Women who are ungovernable, girls who won’t stand by the status quo. Female protagonists who endure the unimaginable and come out stronger.
From deep space to the home hearth, from the far future to the mythical past. Dark magic, body horror, technology, these are women who go beyond. Complicated or straightforward, dark or light, they persist on their own terms.
Not always an easy read, but with a deep core of hope inside each tale, you will find this book has something to move you, be you woman, man, or another gender entirely.

“Bewitching and powerful; these stories strike hard and leave you reeling.” – Cat Hellisen, author of “King of the Hollow Dark”
“A scintillating cache of stories that sparkle with imagination, tenderness and hard-won truths.” – Neil Williamson, author of Queen of Clouds
