The Esther Garber Novellas

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


“The language can be lush, and the passions do flame… Elements of fantasy make their way into these tales as allusion, echoes of old myths and fables: Rherlotte as the hunter’s goddess Diana in mortal form, the household of women in ‘Virgile’ like some elaborately metaphoric medieval verse about an uncanny court…”
—Faren Miller, Locus Magazine

World Fantasy Award winner Tanith Lee channels the allusive Esther Garber to tell these dark, erotic tales of lesbian ardor and obsession. The “fatal women” found within these pages lead exotic lives and adventures and have grim secrets. From fin de siècle Paris to Egypt of the 1930s and contemporary England, the Garber novellas create feverish dreams of danger, scandal, and sensuality.

This new edition includes the novella “Femme Fatale,” never before in print, as well as an essay by Mavis Haut, author of The Hidden Library of Tanith Lee, about the eminence of this collection within Lee’s body of work.
