Hot and Bothered: Short Short Fiction on Lesbian Desire

Front Cover
Karen X. Tulchinsky
Arsenal Pulp Press, 1998 - Fiction - 222 pages

Hot & Bothered, together with Quickies, are hot his-and-her follow-ups to the highly successful Queer View Mirror 1 and 2 books of queer "short short" fiction. Hot & Bothered includes work by 69 women from the US, Canada and elsewhere-stories about danger, romance, humor, and of course, hot sex. From a woman in love with Marge Simpson (asking the question, "Are your nipples blue, too?") to a sex-obsessed dyke trying to do her grocery shopping, to a woman wearing tit clamps trying to go through airport security, the stories in Hot & Bothered will get you there in 1,000 words or less.

Contributors include such luminaries as Dorothy Allison (Bastard Out of Carolina and Skin), Lucy Jane Bledsoe, Joan Nestle, Nisa Donnelly, Gerry Gomez Pearlberg, Sarah Schulman (Rat Bohemia), Persimmon Blackbridge (Sunnybrook and Prozac Highway), Judith Katz, Lesléa Newman (The Femme Mystique), Elana Dykewomon, Jess Wells, and Kitty Tsui (Breathless).

This book is the first of the four-volume Hot & Bothered series.
