Overview

Discover stories that are sure to captivate your mind and titillate your senses!

High-quality lesbian science fiction has been hard to come by… until now! Here is a collection of highly readable stories from some of today's brightest names in science fiction. Periphery: Erotic Lesbian Futures presents fourteen speculative tales—mingled with a generous sprinkling of erotic storytelling—all centered on strong lesbian protagonists that will captivate your mind and titillate your senses.

Periphery: Erotic Lesbian Futures offers up stories that are as sexy and entertaining as they are thought-provoking. Not only do these alluring tales of worlds near and far grab on and hold tight, they tackle some of the most pressing issues of today—and tomorrow! From the messy effects of love and principles to exploring the human genome to corporate greed and beyond, these are science fiction stories foremost—all that eroticism is just an added bonus! And what a bonus it is!

Featured in Periphery: Erotic Lesbian Futures are:

• Marianne de Pierres, who takes you into a half-dream world of bliss
• Nicola Griffith and her moving exploration of art, genius, sex, trust, and how love can throw them all into chaos
• Gwyneth Jones's intimate look at what freedom means—and what it takes
• Kristyn Dunnion, whose protagonists' calls for liberation mean the monkey wrenching of a nightmarish capitalist system
• Lyda Morehouse and her eye-opening world where prostitution is beyond legal—it's sacred
• Kiera Dellacroix's probe into the very genes of humanity for what evolution may grant to a select few and the unexpected consequences of such gifts
• Melissa Scott and her time-bending story of love lost and love found
• Carolyn Ives Gilman's delicate examination of the tenuous balance struck by freedom and love
• Elspeth Potter, whose mecha-clad soldiers battle and explore more than just forbidden alliances
• And even more!

Periphery: Erotic Lesbian Futures is a diverse collection that's exhilarating in more ways than one! It takes you from this world to others never known and from the near future to times long beyond. This unique compilation will keep your senses stirred with excitement, desire, and always possibility.

What People Are Saying

Sheela Ardrian
Works on all three facets: as erotica, as Lesbian literature, and as science fiction. Many of the stories emphasize one or two of those facets over others, but a few manage to balance all three with thrilling results. This is also A FINE SAMPLING OF WORK FROM TODAY'S PROMINENT WRITERS OF QUEER AND SPECULATIVE FICTION. . . . Fans of dystopic science fiction will be especially delighted. This would make an ideal textbook for a class on queer literature or dystopic fiction. GRAB A COPY BEFORE THE FUNDIES SET THEM ON FIRE. (Sheela Ardrian, Reviewer, Fearless Books)
Arlene Germain
An EXCEPTIONAL collection of 14 stories of remarkable and wondrous erotic science fiction. While exploring the spectrum of human emotions, the quintessential hallmark of GREAT STORYTELLING, the various talented authors take the reader on a magical and sensual sojourn. A CAPTIVATING AND COMPELLING reading experience awaits those who dare to venture beyond the ordinary. . . . Well worth the time to enjoy. There is something to satisfy everyone within these covers. . . . A GENUINE GALACTIC JEWEL. . . . Offers an odyssey which will fascinate, excite, and enlighten any reader. (Arlene Germain, Contributing editor, The Crown)
