'Sword and Sonnet contains twenty-three fantasy and science fiction stories featuring battle poets. A poet in search of the dragon her mother banished. A labyrinth that is the last sanctuary against the hunger consuming the world. A gunslinger who kills with a single word. A machete-wielding poet defending her street against the children of revenge. A spaceship-devouring poet who sings to the stars.'
