Commissioned by editors George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, these tales of dangerous women by the most stellar names in fiction are publishing this autumn from Tor Books as a three-volume paperback!
Dangerous Women: Voume Two—available October 28th—includes stories by Lev Grossman, Sharon Kay Penman, S. M. Stirling, Sam Sykes, Caroline Spector, and Nancy Kress, as well as a new Outlander novel by Diana Gabaldon.
In “The Girl in the Mirror,” Lev Grossman takes us to Brakebills, an ancient, venerable school for wizards, one haunted by a thousand age-old traditions as well as spirits of a different kind, to show us that even the most innocent of pranks can end up having dangerous and even deadly consequences. Read an excerpt below, then join Stefan Raets for his review and analysis of the full story.
