|The Lorelei Signal is aweb based magazine dedicated to featuring strong female characters in Fantasy short stories.
This does not mean I don't want to see strong men either, balance is the key. I just don't want to see female
characters who are weak, having to be constantly rescued, etc. Females in the story should have the same strength
of character as their male counterparts and not be there as window dressing. This has been changing over the years
in fantasy writing - the idea of the female character being nothing more than a sidekick, the princess to be rescued,
etc has faded significantly. But, she still shows up occasionally.
The title of this magazine was taken from the Animated Star Trek episode by the same name. In that episode the
men of the Enterprise fell under a siren song and it was Lt. Uhura who had to take command of the Enterprise.
It was a pretty hokey set-up to finally get a female in the command chair of the original Enterprise,
but at least she got there.
So tell us your fantasy stories, but remember you have to include a strong female character in an important role.
