this collection of short stories is far and away better than the first in the series (i think it's the last of 3, at least with these editors). there were only a couple of stories that i wanted to skip and many that led me to check out other works by a number of the authors. ( )

A collection of lesbian stories - some are real stand outs others are merely "there". All are fairly well written, mostly personal stories. Fairly good reading. ( )

Book description
This groundbreaking collection brings together 28 stunning stories by literary talents never before assembled in a single volume. With contributions from both established and bright new voices in lesbian fiction, Women on Women ranges from the subtlety and restraint of Willa Cather's "Tommy, the Unsentimental" to Sapphire's daring and highly erotic "Eat" and Valerie Miner's suspenseful "Trespassing." Some of the stories are universal in theme - the joy and excitement of new romance, the ageless problems of family life, and the pain of lost love and of death. And many are written by or about members of racial, ethnic, and other minorities within the gay community. These are stories that offer stirring, eloquent, often passionate insights into the lesbian experience in a long-overdue collection that represents the best of lesbian short fiction from past to present.
