The Story...

  • "A Fish Out of Water"

    An above sea hunt for the pleasure and song of human women turns disastrous when Ariel, the 77th daughter of the Mer queen, inadvertently catches and shares rising tides with the very lesbian Erica. Rivals quickly report her transgression, and Ariel finds herself an example of what happens to those who defy the queen.

    Stripped of her voice, and placed under a powerful curse, Ariel finds her way above water to Erica's side. Erica, who is now dying for want of Ariel's touch...for the one thing they cannot share.

    Originally written for the anthology Once Upon a Dyke: New Exploits of Fairy Tale Lesbians, this novella turns an old-fashioned fairy tale into a darkly erotic modern romance exploring boundaries of love and trust, atonement and pleasure.
