Publisher Description

Tor.com's science fiction and fantasy flash fiction collection originally published in 2017 inspired by the now-iconic statement, now available in e-book format.

She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

Three short lines, fired over social media in response to questions of why Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced on the floor of the United States Senate, for daring to read aloud the words of Coretta Scott King. As this message was transmitted across the globe, it has become a galvanizing cry for people of all genders in recognition of the struggles that women have faced throughout history.

Three short lines, which read as if they are the opening passage to an epic and ageless tale.

We have assembled this flash fiction collection featuring several of the best writers in SF/F today, including Seanan McGuire, Charlie Jane Anders, Maria Dahvana Headley, Jo Walton, Amal El-Mohtar, Catherynne M. Valente, Brooke Bolander, Alyssa Wong, Kameron Hurley, Nisi Shawl and Carrie Vaughn. Together these authors share unique visions of women inventing, playing, loving, surviving, and – of course – dreaming of themselves beyond their circumstances.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Themed Flash Fiction from Women Writers

This short anthology of short works of flash fiction was offered by Tor for International Women’s Day in 2020. It contains interesting works by some of the most celebrated women authors of our time. Each is based around the famous quote related to US Senator Elizabeth Warren, who nevertheless persisted.

These short short stories each tells a tale of a woman who will not be stopped. These range from ordinary women to She-Minotaurs. They all give a small glimpse of hope.
