The lesbian classic Daughters of a Coral Dawn told the story of a group of pioneering women who disappeared from Earth and colonized the planet Maternas. But what became of the sisters they left behind? In this highly anticipated sequel, best-selling author Katherine V. Forrest describes an Earth beyond nightmare ruled by dictator Theo Zedera-known simply as Zed-whose weaponry is invincible. With ruthless determination he seeks the vanished women remaining on Unit Earth. Among these women is the leader of the Unity, the extraordinary Africa Contrera, Zed's childhood friend as well as his colleague and intellectual equal. As Africa struggles to build a world safe for women, she is haunted by her past - a time when she trusted Zed and shared with him the deadly knowledge he now uses to hunt her. What future can there be for the women who call themselves the Unity? How can they possibly conceal themselves from a world of savagery and a man who intends to find them at any cost? Just as she did 18 years ago, Katherine Forrest has created a brilliant, breathtaking, and romantic saga of a divided society and the rebels courageous enough to withstand a brutal new world.

Long before the rise of the modern gay movement, an unnoticed literary revolution was occurring between the covers of the cheaply produced lesbian pulp paperbacks of the post-World War II era. In 1950, publisher Fawcett Books founded its Gold Medal imprint, inaugurating the reign of lesbian pulp fiction. These were the books that small-town lesbians and prurient men bought by the millions - cheap, easy to find in drugstores, and immediately recognizable by their lurid covers. For women leading straight lives, here was confirmation that they were not alone and that darkly glamorous, "gay" places like Greenwich Village existed. Some - especially those written by lesbians - offered sympathetic and realistic depictions of "life in the shadows," while others (no less fun to read now) were smutty, sensational tales of innocent girls led astray. In the overheated prose typical of the genre, this collection documents the emergence of a lesbian subculture in postwar America.
