Like a Trip Through the Mirror: Lesbian Love in Alternate Realities
edited by Kathleen Tudor, $4.99, ISBN 978-1-61390-101-4, 68 pages.
Five lesbian erotic love stories of magic and mystery. What will you find on the other side of the
mirror? Love? Passion? A world upside down? Step up to the mirror, look deep into your own
eyes (or those of your secret, mirror-world lover) and prepare to have your worldview
completely shifted. The grass really is greener on the other side—and the sex is hotter, too.
For as long as humans have known to look for their own reflections, they have pondered the
magical question: What would you find if you step past your own reflection and into the mirror
world? In these five stories, the answer is passion and fire. Five women step up to the mirror and
come out the other side in the midst of their hottest erotic fantasies, whether that involves
reviving the dying embers of a love affair, seducing a beloved old friend... or perhaps just finding
out for sure what some women have long suspected: that sex really is better with yourself for a
partner! These heroines take risks, brave it all, and step into the unknown, between dimensions,
between worlds, to lay claim to the love and heat that they both deserve and crave.

(Cambridge, MA) -- The idea of a parallel universe is often explored in science fiction and
superhero comics, but hasn't been looked at in erotica, until now. Kathleen Tudor has put
together the latest erotic anthology from Circlet Press--Like a Trip Through the Mirror: Lesbian
Love in Alternate Realities--and she and five authors take the reader "through the looking glass."
For as long as there have been mirrors, there have been superstitions behind them. Mirrors are
seen, not just as reflections, but as portals, used for scrying or for spirits to travel, perhaps
capable of capturing a soul or providing a portal to another world—one that looks the same on
the surface, but contains unknown wonders just outside the reach of the reflection. These stories
explore various possibilities of parallel universes, each one with a lesbian theme or protagonist.
Many of Circlet's themed anthologies mix sexualities, with gay, straight, and lesbian stories
sharing space so long as they fit a common theme like vampires, steampunk, or time travel, but
Like a Trip Through the Mirror is entirely lesbian. "It's a lovely fit," says Circlet Press editorial director Cecilia Tan. "Women-centered erotica tends to explore the rich interior life of the
characters. In these stories, sometimes the mirror is literal, sometimes it is a woman's self-reflection."
Circlet Press has been publishing erotic science fiction books since 1992. Like a Trip Through
the Mirror is available from all major ebook retailers as well as direct from Circlet.com.
