Terrifyingly possible gay and lesbian sci fi stories from the best new and established writers in the field

Edited by world-renowned lesbian fantasy author Nicola Griffith and fantasy publisher Stephen Pagel, this groundbreaking anthology of all-original science fiction stories brings together some of mainstream's and sci fi's most notable writers -- gay and straight -- creating worlds where time and place and sexuality are alternative to the empirical environment. Keith Hartman's "Sex, Guns and Baptists" gives a disturbing view of the world if Christian fundamentalists continue to gain political ground; Ralph Sperry's delightful aliens in "On Vacation" are refreshingly similar to us: shy workaholics, exasperated lovers, good with machines; Ellen Klages takes a 90s dyke back forty years to 1950s San Francisco, discovering she is alien to the lesbians of the time.

This group of talented newcomers and award-winning genre veterans include Mark W. Tiedemann, Charles Sheffield, Carrie Richerson, Keith Hartman, Nancy Kress, L. Timmel Duchamp, and many others.
