Getting Even: Women’s Tales of Revenge, an anthology edited by Mitzi Szereto (to be published by Serpent’s Tail, London)
The "fairer sex_—we’ve all been screwed over in one way or the other, with the screwers often walking away unscathed. Old story, right? But what if FOR ONCE the "unfair sex" (and even some of our own) actually got what’s coming to them?
