Reviews

"Lisa Morton and Leslie S. Klinger offer another thought-provoking collection of 16 short horror and science fiction stories by both iconic and overlooked women writers. Weird Women: Volume 2 offers a tasting flight of sorts for English-language horror and science fiction enthusiasts. A testament to the value of those short pieces that don't conform to the literary norm, Weird Women: Volume 2 is an eclectic collection of haunting stories."-- "Shelf Awareness"
"Morton and Klinger deliver another strong installment featuring 'classic supernatural fiction by groundbreaking female authors. The stories are as creepy as they are varied. Weird fiction fans won't want to miss this excellent survey of the genre's female pioneers."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Horrors and mysteries abound here, with well-known writers like Charlotte Perkins Gilman. If the difficulties of enforced domestic life take their toll, it might be worth reading the supernatural dread and unexplained occurrences women imagined from an earlier time of homebound life."-- "Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine"
"Presents a brilliant and wide-ranging selection of stories. All of them challenge literary scholars and popular readers alike in new and exciting ways to see connections across the genre of the supernatural story."-- "Supernatural Studies"
Praise for Weird Women (Vol 1 and Vol 2):
"It is an absolute must-own for those interested in the women who helped shape the horror genre. Weird Women ultimately works because of the stories and authors Klinger and Morton chose. The focusing is on tales that are not only well-written but are also genuinely creepy."-- "iHorror.com"
