   This collection of 24 entertaining and haunting 19th-and 20th-century tales from the U.S., Britain, and Latin America reclaims a literary tradition that has long been overlooked. Using such techniques as magic realism, allegory, and surrealism, the authors re-imagine the cliches of supernatural fiction, focusing on female characters and treating traditional themes in inventive and provocative ways. Among the authors included are Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, Luisa Valenzuela, Leonora Carrington, Barbara Burford, and Joanna Russ. 1989 LAMBDA LITERARY AWARD FOR BEST LESBIAN SCIENCE FICTION / FANTASY
