Publisher Description

Who are the Ultra Fabulous Glitter Squadron? If you need to ask then you have not been anywhere near a television, computer, or disco recently. No other superheroes are as dedicated or dazzling as these gals. Some of them tuck, some of them are pure trout, but they kick ass in high heels and rollerskates. A.C. Wise's debut collection of heroic tales is half whimsy and half 1950s pulp reborn for the 21st century.

''I didn't realize how much I needed these women and their stories in my life until I started reading, at which point I found it very difficult to stop. Thank you, A. C. Wise!'' - --Jim Hines, Hugo Award winner and author of the Magic ex Libris books

''What Wise does in this book is build a deeply unconventional though not unfamiliar, at least to those of us who are queer--chosen family. She pits them against a range of monsters disguised as comic and film tropes...or perhaps they're tropes disguised as monsters. There are times when the storytelling veers ever so slightly into metafiction. Like its unabashedly long title, The Ultra Fabulous Glitter Squadron Saves the World Again gives the reader so many things. It's your basic superhero-drag show-family drama-Fifties monster movie-bittersweet coming out story-archaeology adventure-political thriller-alien invasion-mash-up.'' --Alyx Dellamonica for Tor.com
