Another Kind Of Love is not any worse than any other lesbian pulp fiction I've read and yet some reviews for it are less than favorable. The thing about l.p.f. is that it both reminds modern lesbians that things have gotten much better and that some things (especially ostracization from family and friends) have sadly stayed the same.

Given the self-hatred so rampant in much of lesbian pulp and how much hate there still is out there for gays and lesbians, some of us still like, almost feel compell

ANOTHER KIND OF LOVE is a reprinting of two stories from the late pulp era. One of them is very good, and the other… isn’t.

Both stories are very much of the time, for better or worse. Multiple characters consider their same-sex attractions and tendencies to be some sort of psychosis, while stereotypical dykes and closeted femmes wander in and out of the Village scene exclusively for hook-ups. The leads bemoan their inability to have children while hating themselves for their romantic interests
It's always difficult to review these old pulp novels, because they are definitely a product of their time. The misogyny and homophobia (even coming from the lesbian characters) can be off-putting, but I look at them as historical documents. It's amazing that such work was even published in the 1950s and 1960s.

There are two novels published in this collection: Another Kind of Love, and Love is Where You Find It.

I loved this book... I'll be honest--I bought this novel based off the cover art and scandalous feel--I didnt know anything about the author or even the lesbian pulp genre. But I totally loved the two novels in this collection because they were solidly written, with interesting characters and though I could take or leave the sadness of the tone--I was willing to accept that since it was two books written in 1961.

It wasnt going to be pretty or sympathetic.

But it is a valuable and interesting wind

A good book - very sweet and tender. Surprisingly well written. If you like middle-20th-century-lesbian-romance, this is the book for you.
