Overview

Three women in three worlds:

Dr. Ann Lucas, former NASA scientist and now a drugged and helpless mental patient, in a reality almost but not quite our own.

Mad Jack, one eyed gunwoman and lover of women, in a ruined and lawless wasteland world.

Jay Younger, living in the here and now, known to her readers simply as Jay -- a science fiction writer whose literary career is on the brink of disaster, an alcoholic and emotional wreck.

When the impossible becomes real and boundaries between worlds start to dissolve, the fates of these three tormented, brave and intense women come together in a remarkable and daring story that examines the basic nature of reality and of human identity.

William Sanders was born in Arkansas in 1942 and served with the US Army Security Agency during the Vietnam War. He is the author of more than 20 published books and many stories and articles; his short fiction has been nominated for major awards, including the Hugo and Nebula, and has twice won the Sidewise Award for Alternate History.

"Girl meets girl meets girl, and she is them. J. is a high-energy sprint across parallel realities. Did I mention that I'm in love with Mad Jack?"

-- Susan R. Matthews, author of PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE and COLONY FLEET
