About this title

Synopsis:

This second volume of Heiresses of Russ follows directly in the footsteps of its hugely successful predecessor, building a corpus of great lesbian short speculative fiction year by year in memory of one of the most influential and provocative queer feminist authors in the genre. Judging by the strength of this installment, if it were possible to subscribe to the Heiresses of Russ anthologies in perpetuity, I would hand over my money now. These stories are worth reading well outside the LGBT-interest subgenre of speculative fiction. Even if you've never thought lesbian fiction was relevant to you, you could do a lot worse than buying this volume and enjoying, learning from and being terrified by the stories within. --Djibril al-Ayad for Future Fire ReviewsAll of the 14 stories in this collection speak to the desire of every human being for self-determination. Some are about escaping oppression. Some are about freeing ourselves from old ideas about ourselves. All celebrate the ultimate dignity of the individual. And all are based on our trust that what fosters the growth of the individual increases the life of the community as well. These stories do more than simply show us women who claim their right to live as freely as men. In the rush to demonstrate that women are the equals of men, we often forgot that women are different from men, and that our differences are strengths, not weaknesses. In these stories, women's unique strengths are not so much demonstrated as assumed, and in many of them I feel an undercurrent I haven't felt before in feminist fiction. Humming along inside them are hints of a subtle shift in focus, from the ''big'' accomplishments, although they are there too, to the ''small moments'' that illuminate our lives, the moments we live for. --Author Catherine M. Wilson for the Lambda Literary Foundation''Showcasing a mix of authors, from superstars like Nalo Hopkinson to promising newcomers like S.L. Knapp, this solid, well-chosen collection will be enjoyed by genre fans of all genders and orientations.'' --Publishers Weekly
