Lexy Wealleans is a scientist and writer. She spends most of her working day struggling with spreadsheets and wishing instead she lived in an Enid Blyton novel. “Counting Down the Seconds” is her first published short story.
A book such as this spins not only words but also whole worlds: eighteen of them, representing the best lesbian-themed stories of the fantastic or futuristic published the prior year. The women to be met in these pages will find themselves tested not because of their sexual identity but rather the identity they have composed, constructed, and spun.
