Review:

"Betz is astute in underscoring how lesbian-authored fantasy can provide a framework for being different, for accepting differences in others, and for recognizing that one's desires are not evil or abhorrent. Valuable...highly recommended"--Choice; "Betz is to be praised for her willingness to introduce readers to less known, highly contemporary objects of study"--Science Fiction Studies; "Betz demonstrates a thorough knowledge of the field of the fantastic"--Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts.
