The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Silk & Steel: An Adventure Anthology of Queer Ladies
Cantina Publishing




Description
Princess and swordswoman. Scholar and mecha pilot. Warrior women… and the courtly ladies who love them.

The Silk and Steel anthology was initially inspired by artwork from Al Norton (see below). She’s put so much tension into these characters! Yet, among all that edginess and conflict, there are also romantic feelings… and a definite sense that both women have the upper hand.

We’re looking for stories of high adventure that feature one weapon-wielding woman and one woman whose strengths lie in softer skills, but who is just as powerful in her own right. You’re free to choose any setting – from historical to modern to wildly futuristic.
