Strange Ladies Cover Final

Strange Ladies: 7 Stories by Lisa Mason
People in publishing today—editors and agents—are screaming for diversity in science fiction and fantasy. I find that a little odd. Science fiction and fantasy writers, especially women writers, have been writing diverse stories for two or three decades! That includes me, and this collection is proof. As I mulled over my published short fiction, I found seven wildly different stories with one thing in common—diverse heroines totally unlike me. I’m the girl next door from Ohio. I have no idea where these Strange Ladies came from. Enjoy their worlds in The Story Collection Storybundle.
