A queer cult favourite, 'The Beatrix Gates' is a colourful mix of science fiction, magical realism, memoir, and myth exploring themes of spirituality and transformation. Courage and cowardice contend in a literary odyssey unlike any other. Written especially for this volume, 'Trans Central Station' is Pollack's personal and political take on the transgender experience then and now - and tomorrow? 'Burning Beard' is a fiercely revisionist Bible tale of plague and prophecy told through a postmodern prose of many colours. 'The Woman Who Didn't Come Back' is about just what it says. And there is of course our usual unusual Outspoken Interview.
