Did You Say Chicks?!(1995)
(The second book in the Chicks in Chainmail series)
An anthology of stories edited by Esther Friesner
A brief word from the characters: We seem to have a failure to communicate here. Hey, it's okay with us that Chicks in Chainmail was so popular, and reached Number 3 on the Locus bestseller list, and everybody wanted more, please. But people, you need to take us sword-swinging amazons a little more seriously. After all, you think it's a picnic wearing a cold brass brassiere (let alone finding the right size)? You think it's a piece of cake keeping those chainmail accessories from rusting when it rains? You think it's a walk in the park besieging a city when you've got PMS? Think again, you wimpy noncombatants!
Sure, you're entitled to a laugh to two. Hey, we like a good joke as much as the next amazon. But hard experience has taught us that swordswomen don't get no respect. So, while you're chuckling, show some respect. You can start by buying this book. You were going to buy the book, weren't you? Pardon us a moment...have to wash the blood stains off these swords before they set...
