    1. Lesbian speculative fiction, most of it very good. My favorites:"To Follow the Waves" by Amal El-Mohtar. Hessa is a dream-crafter, but when someone commissions her to create a dream of the sea, she is at a loss. She doesn't like the sea, or salt water, or beaches. Her art at a stand-still, Hessa goes to a cafe for a break--and there sees a woman so desirable that Hessa is truly inspired for the first time. Beautifully told, with an emotionally complex plot. I've never read anything like it."Ours [...]

    2. Blurb: “In this, the second release in the annual Heiresses of Russ series, Lambda Literary Award winning editor Connie Wilkins joins Steve Berman in choosing the best of the prior year's published speculative fiction with lesbian themes.”I don’t consider myself a “fan” of speculative fiction. I am a fan of good writing and this book is chock full of it. Did I love every story? No, and I won’t bother to give a story-by-story analysis, but each is extremely well written so there’s g [...]

    3. Lethe Press consistently puts out beautifully crafted fiction with high production values--this anthology is another exquisite example.The stories are, without exception, well written. Each one stands out, both in concept and execution. As a collection, it stretches the boundaries not just of what speculative fiction can mean, but also of the boundaries of lesbian relationships, and of the human imagination.Each story is a unique jewel, meant to be savored on its own, as well as part of the coll [...]

    4. I thought that most of the stories in this collection were pretty solid, and I've read and listened to a number of the stories compiled in other places. I guess it doesn't need to be said that I fell in love with Amal's short story. I actually picked up this book to read it because I love her work so much. A number of the stories were good fun. “The Thick Night” was a standout to me. I'd read “Thirteen Incantations” somewhere else before, and I read it again and enjoyed it as much as the [...]

    5. Disappointing. The only story I loved was Amal el-Mohtar's "To Follow the Waves" and balancing it out was a story I -- well, I didn't hate it, but I intensely disliked it: "Feedback" by Lindy Cameron. I loved "To Follow the Waves" when I first read it in Joselle Vanderhooft's Steam-powered and was glad to see it here; a dream-crafter falls in love with her own creation (the issues of consent here are handled well) . "Feedback" is cumbered by exposition-heavy dialogue in which the characters soun [...]

    6. This was a fun read. The stories were short and fun. Some were playful others were horror and none were overtly political. I appreciated reading stories where the character's just happened to be lesbian. I like La Caida. Who wouldn't like the idea of a fallen angel as a butterfly and vigilante vampires who contribute to the community? It's really hard to read an anthology and enjoy every story but I did with Heiresses of Russ. I look forward to reading the other anthologies.

    7. I liked this collection well enough. And I don't mean that to sound lukewarm when I say it—I genuinely enjoyed it and I am very glad this series exists. There actually weren't any stories I dislikedbut also really only a couple that were something special for me.

    8. I wanted to like this collection of lesbian speculative fiction more than I did. While there were several stories I really liked, there were more that left me cold and several I could not finish. Too many goth tales that seemed that teenagers would like!

    9. Amal El-Mohtar, "To Follow the Waves" is the obvious stand-out. The others are (mostly) good, nothing spectacular though.

    10. This is delightful, especially the story that takes place in Portland, Oregon (I may, um, be biased, since I live there). I look forward to reading the other two anthologies, from 2011 and 2013.
