Lesley Storm's debut collection is a passionate and intimate look at love, as well as the difficulties and triumphs of being a transgender woman, in what has come to be a highly divisive and politicised sphere.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Crux is a multifaceted work focused on gender, love, eugenics and marriage within the sphere of a female boarding home for men. First published in 1910, The Crux explores themes of self-preservation and disease hysteria through the life of Vivian - an innocent woman who falls for the doomed, disease-afflicted Morton.
John Herdman's masterpiece of the modern Scottish Gothic appears in print, e-book and audio book with a new introduction from the author. Black humour and even blacker lives collide in a tale of love and murder on an old Borders family estate.
