I was a Brit immigrant who had just split up with my spouse when I first encountered a ghost. I was at the living room table in my new, shared house at the time, while my roommates (most of whom I hardly knew, back then) were out. There I sat, weeping into my hands. How would I pay my rent? How would I tell my family I was now single? How would I manage to stay in this country, which had now become my home?
Alone was the word that came, as I wept: I am so alone.
As soon as I’d thought the words, my laptop switched itself on […]
One night, when I was a kid living near London, my mother accidentally left the back door unlocked.

But I couldn’t miss what was happening ahead—the women who were kissing under the bookstore’s awnings. I balled my fists, willing the flames to hold on while the women fell back into the shadows. I could still see the dark-skinned woman with the made-up face curling her fingers into the others’ beach-blonde hair. […]
An astrologer once told me that the great internal battle of my life lay in balancing my water and my fire. See, I was born on the cusp of Sagittarius (fire) and Scorpio (water). “Am I more one sign than the other?” I asked her, thinking maybe my fire dominated my water.
She replied that my chart was more 50/50 than any she’d ever seen. “But you aren’t two separate signs […]

We’re celebrating a special Those Girls giveaway between 12/01/15 and 12/14/15 (thank you, Alison Tyler!). Let’s face it, Dom Sandy has set so many hearts on fire and continues to do so.

Xan West’s use of story-by-story trigger warnings at the front of Xan’s queer kink erotica collection, Show Yourself to Me, has given rise to some exciting posts. Notions raised include “Why use trigger warnings?” and “Do trigger warnings affect censorship?” Take a look at the snippets below, which are taken from the Radical Accessible Communities Blog and […]
