In this episode, I review Esther Frisner’s Chicks in Chainmail feminist minded, fantasy fiction.

Recently, the success of Black Panther has exceeded even the most wildest of expectations, having passed 1 billion world wide, then 1.25 billion, and now has sailed past the record set by Titanic by James Cameron.
