The Merro Tree.
This marvelous first novel explores the meaning and purpose of art, questions the value of censorship, and tells a damned fine same-sex-different-species love story while doing it. A remarkably colorful galaxy, wonderful characters, and tough questions - this is what science fiction is supposed to be.
A supernatural "fantasy." A woman on a retreat is trying to find herself. Instead, she becomes the lover of the ghost of a long-dead lesbian. The mystery is: will she have to die to join this new love?
A lesbian-feminist classic. Written in an avant-garde style, interspersed with litanies of women's names. This is the story of a society of women warriors fighting against men. Angry, powerful, hypnotic.
Written very much in the style of M.Z. Bradley's "Darkover" novels. Interplanetary intrigue sparks adventures on a feudal world, while two women (an Amazon and a Shadow guide) discover their love for each other.
A masterful retelling of the German version of the "Sleeping Beauty" fairy tale, this beautifully crafted story succeeds in revisiting the horrors of the Holocaust and presenting a perfect modern-day fable. Complete with gay Prince Charming, this novel is lyrical, evocative, and completely compelling.
