Carolyn and Angie have been living together for awhile, but things between them are strained. Angie is not sure how she feels about Carolyn and is, therefore, ambivalent about their relationship. She enjoys their physical encounters, but often feels guilty about the sex afterwards. The situation between them becomes increasingly more stressful until, finally, Carolyn decides she has had enough – she grabs her coat and hits the town in search of true love in the lesbian bars. She meets a woman and goes home with her, hoping that she has finally met the woman of her dreams. Is her new flame the real thing? Will she help take Carolyn’s heart and mind off Angie? And what of Angie? Will she discover that she wants and needs Carolyn in her life… or will she release her, let her find happiness in the arms of another? About Lesbian Pulp Fiction: In the early 1950s new sub-genres of the vintage paperback pulp novel industry emerged—science fiction, juvenile delinquent, sleaze, and lesbian fiction, for instance—that would tantalize readers with gritty, realistic and lurid stories never seen before. Mysteries, thrillers and hardboiled detective pulps were already selling quite well. Publishers had come to realize, however, that sex would sell even more copies. In a competitive frenzy for readers, they tossed away their staid and straightforward cover images for alluring covers that frequently featured a sexy woman in some form of undress, along with a suggestive tag line that promised stories of sex and violence within the covers. Before long, books with these sensational covers had completely taken over the paperback racks and cash registers. To this day, the "good girl art" (GGA) cover art of these vintage paperback books are just as sought after as the books themselves were sixty years ago. With the birth of the lesbian-themed pulp novel, women who loved women would finally see themselves—their experiences and their lives—represented within the pages of a book. They finally had a literature they could call their own. For lesbians across the country, especially those living in small towns, these books provided a sense of community they never knew existed, a connection to women who experienced the same longings, feelings and fears as they did—the powerful knowledge that they were not alone. We are excited to make these classic lesbian pulp novels available in ebook format to new generations of readers.
