Come listen to authors Alma Alexander, Jennifer Brozek, Nathan Crowder, Erik Scott de Bie, Spencer Ellsworth, Keffy Kehrli, and Shannon Page read from Dark Quest science fiction anthologies Beauty Has Her Way, Human Tales, & No Man's Land.
Beauty Has Her Way
An anthology filled with stories of strong-willed women who know how to do bad in the name of good. This anthology is about women across the ages overcoming all obstacles to win their prize.
Beauty will have her way…even if she has to get down and dirty to do it!
Be wary and beware. These are tales of warning and terror; saving the lovely princess from a prince that is much less than charming, rescuing babes from parents not fit to raise them, and the reasons no supernatural can truly win a bargain with such creatures. These are Human Tales.
No Man’s Land
In the wars of the future, women cross the hell of No Man's Land to close with the enemy; explore the futures of fourteen all-new military science fiction stories from women in science-fiction, with an introduction by David Weber, bestselling author of the Honor Harrington novels.
