Flying under the Radar : the WOW stories

p1100005-fleurnenupharweb

You don’t see them.

But they know you.

They could be your excentric aunt, your doting grandmother, your thoughtful – or adventurous- mother, your spinster cousin, your manic sister…

Most stranger don’t give them a second glance as they walk around, except those smart enough to notice the twinkle in the eye, the purposeful gait, the hidden strength of their smile.

Mature, older, bolder: though-as-nails or deceptively frail, meet feisty and fearless Lady Byrd, Running Jane, Cougar Sue…

Those are the wonderful odd women in your life, starring in the WOW series brought together by Echofictions.

The WOW acronym is a nod to the 1974 anthology collection Women of Wonder, edited by Pamela Sargent.

Wow can mean Wonderful Older Women, as those protagonists are still so rare in our mainstream fiction.  But there are countless invisible women around us: the  different, the marginalized, the shamed, the rejected, their inner strenght buried under unflattering physique, addiction, infirmity or unpopular tastes.

Those are the ones you pass in the street, without seeing them. Because they dwell so far from the center of the bell-shaped normal curve of standardized beauty that they don’t make a blink on your radar.

Those are the strange, the misfit, the shy, pushed aside but shoving back with all their might, none of them willing to accept to stay a doormat.

Ligia, a caustic geologist, overweight on Mars; Mistress Theodora, ruler of Gany City; Marilyn, a gen-altered Monroe look-alike slave burning to get freedom; Carmilla, a friendly and bumbling vampire orderly working at the the Icarus Nursing Home… and Armelle, a frail-boned and shy Martian born of two mothers.

Together, the older and bolder compose the Wonderful Odd Women, a series of novels, short-stories and novelettes in different genres, but celebrating the diversity of life, with humor, drama and gusto!

 

The first WOW story is coming out this month on Oct 20th: in French as well as in English
