The Beebo Brinker Omnibus: Ann Bannon's Pulp Classics
Designated the "queen of lesbian pulp fiction" for authoring five landmark novels, Ann Bannon's work defined lesbian fiction for the pre-Stonewall generation. Unlike many writers of the period, however, Bannon broke through the shame and isolation typically portrayed in lesbian pulps, offering instead women characters who embrace their sexuality against great odds.
The Witches of Gloucester by Lisabet Sarai
ERWA Review by Bob Buckley: In the interests of full disclosure, the guy this delightful fantasy is dedicated to — right there on the dedication page — is me, and I couldn't be more overthemoon about being cited in a Lisabet Sarai story.
Now, having said that, let me say further that this is the kind of story you want to just cuddle up to.
Miss Sarai has set our cheeks ablaze and loins aflutter with tales set in exotic locales around the world in which the local environs are as much a character as the people she sets about in pursuit of the erotic. The setting here also plays its part. It is the famous Massachusetts fishing port perched on the tip of Cape Ann. Uh-huh, the other Cape thrust precariously into the Atlantic that has sent crews of fishermen forth to scour the bounty of the ocean, even though the ocean at times exacts a terrible price. It's a place of proud, working-class folks who, throughout its history, have welcomed and embraced the arts and artists, actors and writers, the like of Winslow Homer, Fitz Henry Lane, John Twachtman, Edward Hopper, Rudyard Kipling and H.P. Lovecraft. The list would fill a book, all of them charmed and captured by the magic of this town, which even has its own version of Mardi Gras, known locally as the St. Peter's Festival, in honor of the patron saint of fishermen.
Miss Sarai has captured that magic too, personified in the three witches of the title. Far from Macbeth's trio in temperament and beauty, they include the exotically dark Marguerite and a fiery-haired dervish of Irish mischief, Beryl, who have already shared an idyll lasting a century in the old town, and who make it their business to protect their beloved adopted home.
As happy as they are, they are incomplete without a third companion who appears in the person of Emmeline, a young woman just coming off a breakup with a boyfriend she's well rid of. Woefully bereft of selfconfidence, Emmeline has no idea of the power she possesses, but all will be revealed during a delicious and, yes, magical seduction by Marguerite and Beryl.
This is a gentle and charming story; the conflict revolves around whether Emmeline will accept her lovers' invitation to complete the triangle and continue to protect the people of the charming and charmed port pitched on the edge of the Atlantic.
Maybe you'll decide Emmeline's decision is a no-brainer, but getting there will be one, sweet, sexy romp. And as much fun as a kiss amid a chorus of lusty cheers, Viva San Pedro!

Forbidden Fruit: Stories of unwise lesbian desire by Cheyenne Blue (Ed)
She’s off limits but the attraction burns so bright it’s impossible to resist. This collection of seventeen stories charts the spectrum of unwise lesbian desire, gathering tales of women you should resist—but can’t. In Jean Roberta’s Shelter the bad girl’s back from prison. An upper-class lady seduces her maid in Laila Blake’s poignant story set in Regency England, while a Catholic nun is beguiled by a hooker in Lisabet Sarai’s powerful The First Stone. These women are cops, slave owners, doctors, Dommes, and horse thieves, and you’ll find them at the pool, being seduced by older women, putting their job on the line for lust, or seducing the salt-and-pepper butch.
With stories from writers at the top of their game, including Sacchi Green, Erzabet Bishop, Beth Wylde, Harper Bliss, and Allison Wonderland, this collection is sure to thrill.

Whole Lesbian Sex Stories: Erotica for Women by Felice Newman (Ed)
From the introduction by Felice Newman:
Outside of actual fucking, my favorite kinky activity is reading erotic stories. I love crawling inside another person’s imagination. What hot situation will she dream up? Who are the characters, where in the story will they come together, and what will they do once they get there?
I’m a voyeur. By reading erotica I get to “watch” hot women having sex. Sometimes an erotic story presents me with new ideas, and sometimes an erotic stories causes me to revisit an erotic scenario or activity I hadn’t entertained recently. You might say that reading erotica keeps me fresh. No surprise, since I am a founding publisher of Cleis Press, which has published thousands of them. As a sex educator and sex coach, I deploy erotica as the secret tool for women who feel stuck or emptied of desire. Read sex stories, indulge your fetish, get your kink on, discover your heat, I say.
Here are my favorite graphic depictions of lesbian sex—stories of urgent sex, kinky sex, vanilla sex, self-pleasuring sex, cross-dressing sex, public sex, butch/femme sex, voyeuristic sex, BDSM, edgy sex, passionate, dirty sex. It’s all here.
The Princess Affair by Nell Stark
Rhodes Scholar Kerry Donovan has never had anything handed to her on a silver platter. As she arrives at Oxford to begin her course of study, she is determined to make the most out of this latest opportunity. But when she meets Her Royal Highness Princess Sasha, second in line to the British throne, Kerry’s priorities are eclipsed by an attraction neither of them can ignore. “Sassy Sasha” is a tabloid favorite who appears to delight in scandalizing her people, but beneath her vexed public image, Sasha longs to be truly seen.
"The Princess Affair (Bold Strokes Books)–the title sounds like a lighthearted romp through an adorable love story, but it’s nothing of the sort. This story is so much more. . . .
. . . This tale addresses important issues while couched in a beautifully entertaining and endearing love story—one not to be missed." —Lambda Literary review by Anna Furtado
Women With Handcuffs: Lesbian Cop Erotica by Sacchi Green (Ed)
What is it about lesbian cops that push all the right buttons? Sure, there's the uniform with handcuffs, gun, and billy club, and the confidence, authority, and sense of danger. But there's something more that gives these uncompromising women their commanding, overwhelming sexuality.
The top-flight fiction writers tapped by Lambda Award–winning editor Sacchi Green in Women with Handcuffs capture that irresistible force — and channel it into fiercely erotic stories. Delilah Devlin's cops play their "Only Game in Town" in a Southern city that's small without being small-minded. Elizabeth Coldwell's handcuffed stripper in "Torn Off a Strip" meets her match, while Lynn Mixon's witness protection marshal finds (and gives) a "Healing Hand."
If you like your policewomen on the case and under the sheets, the hotly subversive stories in Women with Handcuffs are for you.
Love Burns Bright: A Lifetime of Lesbian Romance by Radclyffe (Editor)
“…kissing Kathy is like kissing her for the first time and the millionth time, new and yet familiar, fresh and yet filled with the memories of every kiss we’ve shared. Before I fall into the mindless spiral of desire, though, I realize something. What’s important isn’t the future, isn’t the possible forgetting. What’s important is right now, this moment, glorying in everything that it is with no other goal than mutual pleasure.” – Andrea Dale, Sepia Showers
