Reviews & Synopses

Moll Cutpurse: Not sf, but a rollicking good tale nonetheless. Trip back in time a few centuries and hang with an apothecary and a robber, and their potentially burned-at-the-stake family and friends, for more lesbian fun. -- lq, 6/28/00

The Fires of Bride is a Scottish feminist not-quite gothic novel, with a mysterious heroine in a big Scottish castle, a local artist, an assortment of evil religious conservatives, and a herstory of wimmin's religions that keeps popping up. Fun, but not as polished as The Dyke and the Dybbuk, Galford's fourth published novel. -- lq, 9/1/99

Queendom Come: Scottish lesbian comedy. Galford is like a feminist lesbian Thorne Smith with politics. In Queendom Come, an ancient "Proto-Pictish" queen is brought back to save her people. British politics are skewered (in this tale, they have continued drifting rightward a few years' worth of bad legislation) and good clean lesbian fun is had by all. -- lq, 6/28/00 (I quite like this story, but it's hard to find in the States. -- lq, 6/8/2002)

The Dyke and the Dybbuk - charming British lesbian comedy. A London dyke cab-driver is possessed by a dyke dybbuk who induces her to fall for a wildly inappropriate love object - an orthodox scion of the demon-fighters. -- lq, 1996
