Once upon a Dyke: New Exploits of Fairy Tale Lesbians
Once upon a Dyke New Exploits of Fairy Tale Lesbians Author:Barbara Johnson, Karin Kallmaker, Therese Szymanski, Julia Watts Once upon a time, four of your favorite lesbian novelists embarked on a magical journey to bring their favorite fairy tale characters out of the closet and into the sheets. The result is a highly erotic and deliciously tongue-in-cheek collection that brings a whole new meaning to the term "bedtime stories." — Lie back and let these fant... more »asy femmes -- and a butch in wonderland -- take you deep into the forest, high into castles, and through the looking glass. You’ll be enchanted as Rapunzel lets down more than her hair, the Little Mermaid gets soaking wet, and Snow White proves that Sleepy and Bashful are neither. Whether you grew up wanting to be a princess, or wanting to rescue one, Once Upon a Dyke is the book for you!
I loved this book! The stories by Barbara Johnson, Therese Szymanski, and Julia Watts were romantic and erotic and everything I hoped they would be. I'm not big on the butch/femme match up, I find it to be cliche, so I wasn't sure if I'd like "A Butch in Fairy Tale Land," by Therese Szymanski, but I did. It wasn't my favorite, though. I think my favorite was Barbara Johnson's "Charlotte of Hessen," with a close second being Julia Watts' "La Belle Rose." The only story I didn't like was the final one, Karin Kallmaker's "A Fish Out of Water." I found it to be almost scary it was so depressing. No romance happened until the final pages of the story and the sex scenes were not sexy but weird. I would give this book five stars if the last story wasn't so bad.
