Uncharted Sky: A Lesbian YA Short Story Collection by Sarah Diemer, Jennifer Diemer

UNCHARTED SKY is a bewitching collection of young adult short stories, ranging from science fiction and fantasy to paranormal, all featuring a lesbian heroine. This collection is part of Project Unicorn, a fiction project that seeks to address the near nonexistence of lesbian main characters in young adult fiction by giving them their own stories.

1. Falling Home (Dark Fantasy)
The angel Silver, and her brother Det, race through the many levels of hell, trying to find the soul of Silver’s dead girlfriend before the host of devils track and devour them.

2. Nike (Magic Realism)
Bullied to the breaking point, Beth wonders if suicide is the answer, but a call to a suicide hotline and memories of a story begin a strange change within her.

3. A Bit of Space (Science Fiction)
Every night, Molly waits helplessly for Cel to return to her from another world. But now Cel has forged a gift to bridge the billions of miles between them.

4. Finding Mars (Science Fiction)
Tab and Diana end their summer tour of all things UFO in Mars, Pennsylvania…and share an out-of-this-world experience.

5. The Gargoyle Maker (Dark Fantasy)
Rose falls in love with the gargoyle maker, a wandering girl who keeps her village safe by creating hideous monsters. But the gargoyle maker cannot remain in one place for long…will Rose’s heart be broken?

6. The Girl on the Mountain (Fantasy)
The girl on the mountain keeps Kivrin's village safe, and the village, in turn, makes offerings to her every summer. But Kivrin harbors a years-old secret, one she hopes she will be brave enough to speak aloud.

7. Bone Ship (Science Fiction)
Ellie is stationed with her dad on the Bone Ship--a graveyard floating in space. When her old girlfriend comes to visit, Ellie shows her around the ship, disturbing the strange, ghostly presence that haunts it.

8. Poppy and Salt (Paranormal)
Celia and Alice are young vampire hunters who are falling in love with each other. But a vampire's upsetting curse reminds them that their time together might be short.

9. Mercy Brown (Paranormal)
Everyone in town believes the legend that Mercy Brown is buried in the old cemetery. And that she's a vampire. Layne and Andy test that theory one night when they venture into the cemetery past sunset.

10. Kyrie (Paranormal)
When a wounded Kyrie falls from the sky and crash-lands on campus, Mille makes up her mind to help the Kyrie at any cost--even if that means coming to terms with her own painful past.
