Alex Jeffers is author of Safe as Houses, a novel, and The New People, a science-fiction novella. His many works of short fiction have appeared in magazines including North American Review, Blithe House Quarterly, Fantasy & Science Fiction, —-Brane SF, and Icarus; and in anthologies such as New Dimensions (#s 6, 8, 9, 10, 12), Universe (new series, #s 2 & 3), Men on Men (#s 3 & 7), Best Gay Erotica 1996, The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy 2009, and Wilde Stories 2009.
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.
From the author of Safe as Houses and The Abode of Bliss, ten wondrous tales of yesterday, today, and tomorrow—of our familiar world and others.
Alex Jeffers’s first collection of fantastical stories is a treacherous box of delights.
