"Waiting on Wednesday" #2: Dangerous Women

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is 
Dangerous Women an anthology edited by George RR Martin and Gardner Dozois.

From Goodreads:

The Dangerous Women anthology contains following stories:
- Introduction by Gardner Dozois
- “Some Desperado” by Joe Abercrombie - A Red Country story
- “My Heart is Either Broken” by Megan Abbott
- “Nora’s Song” by Cecelia Holland
- “The Hands That Are Not There” by Melinda Snodgrass
- “Bombshells” by Jim Butcher - A Harry Dresden story
- “Raisa Stepanova” by Carrie Vaughn
- “Wrestling Jesus” by Joe R. Lansdale

- “Name the Beast” by Sam Sykes
- “Caretakers” by Pat Cadigan
- “Lies My Mother Told Me” by Caroline Spector - A Wild Cards story
- “The Princess and the Queen” by George R.R. Martin - A Song of Ice and Fire story

This looks like a great anthology with a lot of well- known authors. It's a little ways out yet, not releasing until December, but I'm looking forward to it. The biggest draw for me, of course, is the new Ice and Fire background story by George RR Martin. With such a long wait between books it's nice to get a little tide-me-over once in a while...
