on sale now: Bad Ass Moms


After a most successful crowdfund, Bad Ass Moms is now on sale from Crazy 8 Press. It was originally intended to launch at Shore Leave 42 this weekend, but instead it will be out the same weekend as the virtual Shore Leave 41.5.

You can order the book from pretty much any online dealer — Amazon (Kindle or trade paperback), Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Angus & Robertson, Monadori, and Vivlio.

Editor Mary Fan did a bunch of nifty little promo illustrations for several of the stories — the one for my own “Materfamilias” is above.

Here’s the full table of contents of these stories about mothers who kick some serious butt:

  • “Ruth” by Michael Jan Friedman
  • “Raising the Dead” by Hildy Silverman
  • “What We Bring with Us” by Derek Tyler Attico
  • “The Songbird and Her Cage” by Joanna Schnurman
  • “Hellbeans” by Jenifer Purcell Rosenberg
  • “Krysta, Warrior President” by Peter David
  • “Did They Do That?” by Denise Sutton
  • “Mama Bear” by Danielle Ackley-McPhail
  • “Jupiter Justice” by Kris Katzen
  • “The Devil You Knew: A Scoubidou Mystery” by Glenn Hauman
  • “Mr. EB’s Organic Sideshow” by Paige Daniels
  • “Materfamilias” by Keith R.A. DeCandido
  • “Pride Fight” by T.E. Bakutis
  • “Perfect Insanity” by T.J. Perkins
  • “The Art of Crafting Resistance” by Karissa Laurel
  • “The Hardwicke Files: The Case of the Full Moon” by Russ Colchamiro
  • “Come In, Sit Down, Have a Bite!” by Paul Kupperberg
  • “Shape Up, or Ship Out” by Heather E. Hutsell
  • “Shoot Center” by Robert Greenberger
  • “She’s a Real Cougar” by Kathleen O’Shea David
  • “DuckBob in: Running Hot” by Aaron Rosenberg
  • “On Moonlit Wings” by Mary Fan

I’ve had the pleasure of reading a couple of the stories in this anthology, and am very much looking forward to reading the rest of it! Mighty Mary Fan is not only the editor of the book, she also wrote the closing story, which is one of the ones I have read, and it’s a magnificent piece of work.
