Heidi Wyss Gormglaith, a techno-gothic, speculative novel, has quietly amassed a small but devoted contingent of followers on the web. Lovers of skin like Gormglaith's kinky illustrations and the Sapphic love shared between its characters, while would-be etymologists can delight in the challenging polyphony of Celtic, Norse, Old English, and hacker argot. The plot, such as it is, orbits around its titular character, the enigmatic Gormglaith, over the five days following her discovery of the circumstances of her birth.

Description: Gormglaith by Heidi Wyss
The scope of Wyss world building, augmented by a glossary at the book's end, recalls the work of gender-bending speculative fiction writers Ursula LeGuin and Joanna Russ. Russ The Female Man in particular springs to mind, sharing with Gormglaith a future bereft of the Y chromosome. There are moments when Wyss the linguist becomes Wyss the poet, deftly splicing disparate tongues to fashion a feast to the ears the delivery is pitch perfect, the cadence something like music. When Wyss is on, the results can be explosive.
