3.0 out of 5 stars New book about us chicks
The chicks are back and as good as ever. If you liked the first three books in the series, you will like this one. Many of our favorites are back including the Ladies' arms and auxiliary, our contract fighter turned writer on Paper-Pushers. Additionally, there are many new contributors, including a very funny and true short poem to lead off the collection. And, don't miss...

4.0 out of 5 stars Addicting . . . but in a good way, Oct. 9 2000

This review is from: The Chick is in the Mail (Mass Market Paperback)
I've been reading this series since the original "Chicks in Chainmail", and they're all wonderful, addicting. Here's the thing: they've almost gotten so that you have to read them in order. Several stories in this won't make as much sense unless you know the setup -- especially the Ladies' Aid and Armor Society one and the one about Riva Konneva et al.
I won't say this is a terrible thing. You really should read them all. (In other words, this is a great book, but not the place to start.)
That said, the stories in here are witty beyond belief. They've stereotyped the stereotype. They've also exploded the stereotype. There's nothing the authors leave sacred involving the Xena-type warrior, the hulking male barbarian, what REALLY happened in fairy tales . . .
My favorite story out of this bunch has to be "The Case of Prince Charming". It's obviously a rewrite of the fairy tale, but the extras thrown into it, and the pun in the title, make it wonderfully amusing.
In summation: get the other ones first, but DON'T FORGET THIS ONE!

And, don't miss the author's bios which are written in a style nearly as humorous as the stories.
