“Women and Ladies, Blood and Sand”

The original Nalah story, written at Clarion in 2000, “Women and Ladies, Blood and Sand” played a big part in inspiring God’s War (and Nalah even shows up in Rapture, the third book in the series).  This story made the rounds to all the major (and a lot of the minor) magazines, but never found a home until it was collected in Brutal Women: The Short Stuff.
