I know there's lots out there, but i'm drawing a bit of a blank for myself right now. Suggestions of book titles & character names?
If you post 'em here I'll add them to the wiki, or, feel free to add them to the wiki yourself.
Alanna from The Song of the Lioness quartet and Keladry from Protector of the Small series (both by Tamora Pierce).
Cimorene from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles (Dealing With Dragons etc) by Patricia C. Wrede.
Jessica Amanda Salmonson - Amazons etc., actually you should probably look at her website, etc., she would be your preeminent expert I would think as far as fantasy goes and could likely help you out with questions.
Robert E. Howard's Dark Agnes and Sonya of Rogatino - Sword woman and Shadow of the Vulture, and of course descending from Sonya is Red Sonja.
Swordspoint - Ellen Kushner
Sethra Lavode et. al. that series by Steven Brust (several here)
Chicks In Chainmail etc. by Esther Friesner
The Adventures of Alyx by Joanna Russ
Hawk Queen by David Gemmell (and others in series)
Jalav etc. by Sharon Green
As soon as I saw the topic, I thought "That's swordsperson." :-)
thanks - this is awesome. i'll add them tomorrow (unless y'all have already done so)
If you want to give Ms. Birnbaum a friend, Makri, from the Thraxas series.
Valeria of the Red Brotherhood, from Red Nails.
Oh yeah, a whole series about a swordswoman I completely forgot :-
Rogue Angel by Alex Archer, bunches of these so far.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer of course, is happy to use many weapons, swords included.
In A Taste For Death by Peter O'Donnell Modesty Blaise is involved in a fencing match for their lives - one of the major parts of this book compared to the others, the sword thing.
Elektra by Yvonne Navarro another obvious one I suppose, being a ninja assassin and all, basically.
A few in the Deathstalker series by Simon R. Green carving up plenty, Hazel D'Ark and others.
As well as Steven Brust's musketeer satire mentioned before in the Viscount of Adrilankha series which will obviously have lots of swords - some of them wielded by female experts, his Vlad Taltos series has swordswinging dragonlord women (Aliera et. al) and other characters that appear in the one already mentioned.
Also published in 4 parts: A Secret History: The book of Ash, Carthage Ascendant, The Wild Machines, Lost Burgundy
And I see book 1 has been folded into the complete volume again, time to go do some uncombining...
Also Jo Walton's King's Name and King's Peace - an alternate world Aurthurian style fantasy from the point of view of a female knight.
Jaran and sequels by Kate Elliott, science fiction but the heroine ends up riding with the men of a vaguely Russian steppe like nomadic people and wielding a sabre.
Lorimal's Chalice and sequels by Jane Fletcher
The Xena tie in novelizations and short story books.
Tags to explore for more - female warrior, swordswoman, women warriors,
And less selective - strong heroine, powerful women, strong women
Also here is a useful mashup:
