Synopsis

Maureen Birnbaum, Barbarian Swordperson is a 1993 anthology by George Alec Effinger, with cover and interior illustrations by Ken Kelly. They collect all his stories about Maureen "Muffy" Binrbaum, a Jewish American Princess who is magically teleported to various fantasy and science fiction universes, and later recounts the tales to her best friend, "Bitsy" Spiegelman.

Originally written on his own initiative, the character proved popular enough for Effinger to gain several requests from authors to have versions of their work visited by Muffy. In addition to satirizing and spoofing the various stories, they had a feminist undertone, as Maureen delt with the often sexist reactions of the inhabitants of the worlds she met, struggled to find the Martian price she had fallen in lovewith, and contrasted her adventures with Bitsy, a housewife with an increasingly unhappy marriage.
