  • An online review of the anthology noted that 'Pete Kempshall's "Someone Else to Play With" is a disturbing dark fantasy featuring an arrogant, conceited protagonist. Its mix of suspense and dark magic are common tropes but the fine characterization makes this particular story stand out.'

    'We love them: beautiful, strong-willed women. Now read an anthology filled with stories about them. This is not a heroine's book unless the heroine knows how to do bad in the name of good. This anthology is about women across the ages overcoming all obstacles to win their prize. Beauty will have her way...even if she has to get down and dirty to do it!'
