Fist of the Spider Woman is a revelatory anthology of horror stories by queer and transgressive women and others that disrupts reality as queer women know it, instilling both fear and arousal while turning traditional horror iconography on its head. In this collection, horror (including gothic, noir, and speculative writing) is defined as that which both titillates and terrorizes, forcing readers to confront who they are.

Kristya Dunnions Homeland reveals the horrors that lurk on your average night in a lesbian bar- Elizabeth Bachinskys Postulation on the Violent Works of the Marquis de Sade is a response to Sade from a feminist (yet kinky) perspective- and Amber Dawns Here Lies the Last Lesbian Rental is a paranormal fantasia about urban gentrification, set in a house rented by lesbians on the eve that it is sold to new owners. Subversive, witty, sexy - and scary - Fist of the Spider Woman poses two questions- What do queer women fear the most?

and What do queer women desire the most?
