Publisher's Summary

Spring Fire was the first lesbian pulp novel ever published. The original 1950s cover blared: "A story once told in whispers now frankly, honestly written." Shameless and seductive in an era when lesbian lives were hidden from view, Spring Fire chronicles the story of Leda and Mitch, two sorority sisters at a Midwestern university who stumble into a forbidden love affair. While their romance ends unhappily - in order to satisfy US postal inspectors who would have seized shipments of a novel that affirmed lesbian love - Spring Fire touched the lives of countless lesbian and gay readers and cleared the way for the hundreds of lesbian pulps that were to come. This edition includes a new introduction by the author, describing the story behind the novel's initial publication.

What the Critics Say

"Still hot, still intense, still wholly involving." (On Our Backs)

"Without Spring Fire... there would never have been the Beebo Brinker chronicles, nor an author known as Ann Bannon." (Ann Bannon, author of Beebo Brinker)

"[Packer] wrote deftly within her boundaries, and produced a story that is both revolutionary in its content and defiantly steamy." (Velvetpark magazine)

    O.K so it's like this ,this was the first of it's kind and it shows even the writer apologizes for the ending and rightly so although the views of the time where not her fault,however this is quite shocking ,some heavy issues are being tackled here ,I don't know if I would recommend this, apart from the fact the narrator sounds like she's reading the six o'clock news ,it's antagonizing in it's views .If your a Beebo Brinker fan I say give it a miss stick to Ann she learnt well from this.
