A brief word from the characters: We seem to have a failure to communicate here. Hey, it's okay with us that "Chicks in Chainmail" was so popular, and reached Number 3 on the "Locus" bestseller list, and everybody wanted more, please. But people, you need to take us sword-swinging amazons a little more seriously. After all, you think it's a picnic wearing a cold brass brassiere (let alone finding the right size)? You think it's a piece of cake keeping those chainmail accessories from rusting when it rains? You think it's a walk in the park besieging a city when you've got PMS? Think again, you wimpy noncombatants!
