The versatile Barbara Hambly (Dragonshadow, Wet Grave and other titles in her Benjamin January historical mystery series) offers a provocative feminist fantasy, Sisters of the Raven, with a Native American-inspired background. In Yellow City, men have traditionally wielded the magic that's healed the sick and brought the rain, but in a season of drought and unrest, women suddenly acquire magical powers, for which some of the newly empowered have to pay the ultimate price. A blurb from Harry Turtledove, plus the author's high reputation in both the SF and mystery fields, should help spark sales.
