The Margarets

The Margarets

Earth is in crisis, virtually destroyed by overpopulation, and mankind is teethering on the edge. ISTO – the Interstellar Trade Organization – had demanded man’s extinction, for a living planet is more important than any race upon it, and was about to start ‘reducing’ mankind when Earthgov agreed its demands, to sell 90 per cent of Earth’s inhabitants into bondage to alien races. When Margaret is six, she imagines herself as a spy, a healer, a queen, a warrior, even a boy, to amuse herself; when she is nine, and 12, and 20, at crisis points in her life, she feels like parts of her have split off – like the Margaret who decided to follow her lover to Tercis and the Margaret who said no.

The Gate to Women's Country

The Gate to Women's Country

The Gate to Women’s Country tells of a society that exists three hundred years after our own has nearly destroyed itself. Now, male warriors are separated from women at an early age and live in garrisons plotting futilely for the battles which must never be fought again. Inside the women’s towns, education, arts and science flourish. But for some like Stavia, there is more to see. Her sojourn with the man she is forbidden to love brings into sharp focus the contradictions that define their lives. And when tragedy strikes, Stavia is faced with a decision she never thought she would make – a decision that could forever change their world … The Gate to Women’s Country is a novel that rivals Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in scope, impact, and the sheer power of its storytelling.
