Dream Tigers

Dream Tigers is an interconnected set of short stories exploring themes of gender identity. The characters are gender fluid rather than transsexual, transcending the binary restrictions of their birth gender to explore the possibilities of femininity. Each story is an invention exploring situations where its protagonist is coming to terms with feelings of alienation. This alienation emanates from the the psychological disruption caused when the barriers of gender conformity are breached. The stories are set in different time zones stretching from the ice age into the near future but most of them take place during the second half of the twentieth century, a period spanning the life time of the author. some of the events and locations are loosely autobiographical. At the center of the book is the mysterious figure of Cybele. She is half human, half goddess and her presence intertwines with the experiences of the characters who appear in the stories. She is the Earth Mother who exists to protect the sacredness of femininity and its role in preserving the sentience that sustains it. She appears in throughout the book as avenging angel.
