Modern Ranch Living – by Mark Poirier
Features a 17 year old female bodybuilder as one of the main characters.  An unusual read but good all the same.


Happy reading....

Got the chance to read it over the weekend. Was an interesting experience.

Robert E. Howard described Valeria in "Red Nails" as follows:

She was tall, full-bosomed, and large-limbed, with compact shoulders. Her whole figure reflected an unusual strength, without detracting from the femininity of her appearance. She was all woman, in spite of her bearing and her garments. The latter were incongruous, in view of her present environs. Instead of a skirt she wore short, wide-legged silk breeches, which ceased a hand's breadth short of her knees, and were upheld by a wide silken sash worn as a girdle. Flaring-topped boots of soft leather came almost to her knees, and a low-necked, wide-collared, wide-sleeved silk shirt completed her costume. On one shapely hip she wore a straight double-edged sword, and on the other a long dirk. Her unruly golden hair, cut square at her shoulders, was confined by a band of crimson satin.

Does anyone have a master list anywhere of fantasy/action literature which has protagonists or major characters which are muscular females?  There are a number of good ones in this thread. The ones I've read that are worth reading:
Body - by Harry Crews
Chemical Pink - by Katie Arnoldi (though super negative toward msucle lusters)
Achlles Choice - comes with drawings too
Modern Ranch Living - well written
Iguana Love - unlikeable character but bodybuilder in training

Modern Ranch Living:

 Editorial Reviews
From Publishers Weekly
Short story writer and novelist Poirier (Naked Pueblo; Goats; etc.) is making a name for himself as a chronicler of the surreal everyday life of the suburban Southwest. In his panoramic, essentially plotless second novel, he captures the aimless, air-conditioner-blasted, pop-culture-saturated nature of existence in Tucson, Ariz. During the summer of 2001, Kendra Lumm and Merv Hunter have nothing in common except proximity. She's a teenaged fitness fanatic, he's the 30-year-old manager of a Splash World, and they both live with their parents in Rancho Sin Vacas, a sprawling gated community in the desert outside Tucson, where growth occurs "at the rate of an acre an hour." Kendra is seeing an anger management therapist, and Merv is trying, halfheartedly, to determine whether he'll always be a loser who lives with his sleepwalking insomniac mother. When a Magic Marker–sniffing juvenile neighbor suddenly disappears, filling everyone with concern and foreboding, the protagonists begin to address their own problems. Kendra and Merv cross paths only occasionally, but their parallel pursuits of happiness are similarly baffled and good-natured. Kendra's strange Valley Girl–like speech patterns ("plussing as which") add a baroque touch to this deadpan expedition into a weird corner of the American psyche.

From Booklist
Summer in Tucson, Arizona, is hot and lazy, and strange things are happening in the neighborhood of Rancho Sin Vacas ("ranch without cows"). Kendra is a 16-year-old fitness fiend who spends her days focused not on school^B but on muscle growth and trying to control her violent nature. Her wimpy brother is soon off to college at Columbia, but he fails to find a personality, just moping around and occasionally hanging around a strange girl from high school. Merv is their 30-year-old neighbor across the street who lives with his batty mother and faces a job with no real future. When the local drug addict mysteriously disappears and murder is suspected, these characters form unlikely alliances as uncertain futures loom closer. As the summer heats up, so do their lives, and as things twist out of control, they realize that this will be the most important summer of their young lives. Poirier has an understanding of and finds humor in the strange as well as a gift for characterizing the ennui and discontent that envelopes youth. Michael Spinella

...Poirier's characters are believably eccentric, and his plots teem with the plausible weirdness of desert towns. -- The Advocate, November 23, 2004

It's a craftily concocted story with more than a few surprises... -- The San Diego Union Tribune, September 26, 2004

Poirier's got a knack for swift, vivid description... -- The Seattle Times, October 31, 2004

I'm doing a audio book of a sci-fi series call "Star Kingdom"  There is a female who was was made from human and feline genes. She was built to fight. She has enhanced strength, speed, agility etc. The book compares her to another character. A large male who is a competitive bodybuilder in his free time. (They still have bodybuilding shows 2000 years from now on other planets.) She is a bit shorter than him (6'2) and her muscles are about the same size

Domination of the Draka Series by S. M. Stirling
Overview: The Domination of Draka is a dystopian alternate history series by S. M. Stirling. It comprises a main trilogy of novels as well as one crossover novel set after the original and a book of short stories. This series is also called the Draka series or Draka Saga.



The Draka novels postulate a slave-holding militaristic white African empire founded by British Loyalists who escaped to South Africa after the American Revolution rather than to Canada (as in our history). They were later joined by French Royalist émigrés, Icelandic refugees, and demobbed veterans of the Napoleonic Wars, then by tens of thousands of defeated Confederates after the American Civil War.
Genre:Science Fiction/Alternate History


Marching Through Georgia 1942: The Eurasian War.
The fleets of Imperial Japan raid the coasts of a United States that stretches from Panama to the Arctic. The Nazi war machine takes Moscow and sweeps east to the Urals. To the south the Domination of the Draka is a giant forge with serf-manned factories pouring out tanks, airplanes and artillery as the Janissary legions gather for the final triumph and revenge.

Under the Yoke In Stirling's alternate world of Marching Through Georgia , the Tories of the American Revolution left the colonies for South Africa and founded a slave-based society that evolved into the Domination of Draka, ruling all of Africa and siding with the Allies in WW II just to gain more land and chattel. This sequel opens in the 1940s with the Draka reducing Europeans to serfs, as they have already done with Africans and Arabs, and beginning to come into conflict with a U.S. headed by President Marshall. Fred Kustaa, an OSS agent, ventures into Draka territory to bring weapons to Finnish resistance fighters and to smuggle out Professor Ernst Oerbach, a scientist who holds the key to fusion bombs. Kustaa's contact in the latter mission is serf Marya Sokolowska, a captured Polish nun. Stirling's latest has less military action than its predecessor--though an ambush of Draka forces by Finnish insurgents and a flashback by one of the characters to WW II are limned with vigorous battle scenes--deepening the overall darkness of the author's vision of Draka society. This is a potent, unflinching look at a might-have-been world whose evil both contrasts with and reflects that in our own.

The Stone Dogs During the cold war between the Alliance and the Domination, Frederic and Marya work for the OSS as spies and assassins. During the Draka conquest of India, Marya Lefarge is taken prisoner. She becomes a serf to Yolande Ingolfsson, who after torturing her repeatedly with a neural weapon, forces her to become a "brooder" (i.e. a surrogate mother) for her offspring, Gwendolyn. Yolande also swears vengeance on Fred Lefarge after he kills her lover, Myfanwy Venders, during the Indian Incident. As both superpowers expand into space, they prepare different doomsday weapons. The Alliance's weapon is a computer virus ("comp plague") secretly planted in Draka military computers by spies; the Draka's is a biological virus called the Stone Dogs that causes infected personnel to go insane. Yolande discovers Marya, who has contacted the OSS, planting the comp-plague and allows her to escape with knowledge of the Stone Dogs. This forces her uncle, Archon Eric von Shrakenberg, to use the weapon prematurely. The Draka win the resulting conflict; however, their incomplete victory leads to Eric negotiating an arrangement whereupon the Alliance is allowed to launch its generation ship "The New America" and the remaining Alliance survivors in space are granted limited Draka citizenship.

Drakon It is four centuries after the ending of Stirling's previous novel of the Draka Domination, The Stone Dogs. An accident with an experimental stardrive flings a genetically tailored Draka warrior, Gwendolyn Ingolfsson, across universes and time into contemporary New York City. Kenneth Lafarge, a secret agent for those who fled the Draka, comes to Earth in pursuit of her. Caught in the cross fire are New York cop Henry Carmaggio and his lover, investment counselor Jennifer Feinbaum. The Draka's plan is, very simply, to open an interdimensional gate and bring in a Draka army to conquer Earth. Defeating this cheerfully bloodthirsty scheme involves nonstop action and Stirling's usual wealth of technical detail, wry wit, and superlatively drawn female characters, not the least of them the appalling Ms. Ingolfsson.

Drakas! THINK ABOUT HISTORY. NOW MAKE IT WORSE...

The Domination of the Draka begins as a British possession in Africa, but soon becomes far more. Absorbing refugees after the American Revolution, and later the Civil War, the Draka become a people bred to rule with an iron fist. They permanently enslave the peoples of Africa, when they do not simply kill them.

But this does not slake the Draka thirst for power. Sweeping across the world, the Draka empire engulfs nation after nation, shackling into servitude all who are not Draka. Europe, Asia, and finally all the Earth and its colonies throughout the Solar System fall before the might of the Draka.

But empires are not faceless monoliths; they are made of individuals, complex humans with their own hopes and dreams. And so one might ask: Who are the Draka? What sort of people does the Domination rule? The Draka would have many different answers...

...and this is their story.

I remember reading a book in the early 80s where a guy ended up on another world in a muscular woman's body - but don't remember the name.  Does that ring a bell for anyone?

So, I've read the infamous Chemical Pink. (I had to buy it used cause it's out of print and the ebook's price tag is the same as the paperback's)

I had no prejudice at all because I already knew what the plot was about and I was ok with it. I wasn't looking for a book enthusiastic about the female muscle fetish from a male perspective, it's clear as day Charles - the main male character - would be a villain. That's good, I wouldn't identify with Charles anyway.

Still, the book is bad.

The main reason I find it bad is because - as the author herself says - it's derived from a short story. And to be honest, it's still a short story. Chapters are comically short, there are literally several chapters made of one paragraph only. As soon as you begin to imagine a scene in your head most chapters are already over.
Characters are ridiculously underdeveloped - especially the most interesting one, Amy, the bodybuilder's daughter.
It's not even a book. It's more like a sequence of quick sketches and short dialogues. It would work better as a script for a stage play. And the fast and loose ending is no exception, it seems like the author was in a rush to finish it.

The second reason is that the writing style is dull. Sentences are short, descriptions are plain, the English used is very simple as if this was a book for teenagers (which is definitely not). The exceptions being the names of muscle groups and the many drugs and chemicals mentioned.
But there are many stories posted on this very forum that are better written.

However, there are good things too. The author is a former "bodybuilder" (she calls herself so however we would call her a bikini competitor today) so I appreciate the faithful technical descriptions of the main character's journey (the bb scene, the drugs, the diet, etc.)
And it's good to have a book about female bodybuilding, even if it's an abuse story. I wish there were more, regardless of quality.
