Hellebore & Rue: Tales of Queer Women and Magic

by JoSelle Vanderhooft & Catherine Lundoff, eds.

The essence of fantasy is magic and the folklore of women has often dwelt on the innumerable powers they possess. Magic that heals, magic that destroys, magic that saves their community. All these elements and more can be found in the queer women of Hellebore & Rue. These lesbians shape their worlds, their wants and needs, and, most important, their destinies. Here are stories of a greenmage reuniting with her former partner on one last mission in Connie Wilkins’ “The Windskimmer”; a shaman calling on the power of the Medicine Buddha to fight demons in Jean Marie Ward’s “Personal Demons”; and even an aging school nurse discovering a dark secret about her heritage in Steve Berman’s “D is for Delicious.” A dozen stories by a dozen talented authors, including Juliet Kemp, Lisa Morton, Ruth Sorrell, C. B. Calsing, and other names that promise the reader many wonders.
