The apocryphal Erotic Lesbian story need not be a great romance story, but it has to a convincing story of about the lives of true to life lesbians, engaging in romantic and lustful pursuits.
The characters are more important than the story, and this collection is exactly what is required. It contains an impressive array of storylines that are interesting to both lesbians and lesbian aficionados.
It must have an intelligent slant, and this collection does by making great use of narrative that provides a biological background for the characters. And it is quite entertaining and in many cases quite informative.
The stories are meant to provide titillation to the reader, and a better understanding, that lesbian romance is not so easily pigeon holed into one restrictive theme.
