Set in the mid 1980's. This lesbian novel, a spoof on werewolves and vampires, begins with two women prisoners, one scheduled for execution in the gas chamber, who escape and encounter the supernatural. Twists and turns in the tale involve an ancient family curse, a young female werewolf who seeks a cure, and her forever young and beautiful grandmother, a vampire, who enjoys her power over women and her immortality. There's also Diane Hersh a young woman who has some unusual mental problems. As the daughter of murder victim, Senator Carol Sue Hersh, Diane knows more than she has ever told. There are plenty of problems to go around – from Lydia Vernon of KWOW radio station, with family problems she solves rather abruptly, to her avid listeners, such as 102 year old retired farmer, Thomas Tiggle.
