Perhaps i am looking in the wrong places, but the body of serious Gynarchic fiction seems remarkably small. i don’t mean Venus in Furs and others like it – that is Femdom, as it has no wider social Female Supremacist element. Nor do i mean any of the feminization or cuckolding fiction that fills shelf after virtual shelf on Amazon. i mean properly-written fiction with plots and characterisation and a Gynarchic world-view – the kind the teenage me never found.
If it is out there, then it is lurking in the shadows, which is a pity. Great ideas need to breathe, and to be breathed in by those who have not encountered them before.
i have mentioned a few novels elsewhere but if you stumble across this page and have a recommendation, please leave a comment. Or email me on email@example.com
Here is a gynarchic novel – a trilogy, in fact. That’s my name at the bottom of the cover there. In She Shall Have Music i have conceived a Gynarchic universe which i hope a certain sort of reader (you know who you are) will enjoy inhabiting, even for a few hours, and realise that they feel at home.
The first part of She Shall Have Music features a young Woman inspired to raise Herself from rural poverty after a chance encounter with two prosperous Female slavers; by a boy whose lack of backbone i now rather regret; by a more admirable hero (yes you can be a Gynarchist and real man, dammit); and a patriarchal king dispossessed by his people in favour of his charming younger sister, who has secretly fallen under the sway of the last survivors of an ancient Matriarchal tribe.
There is even a scene in which a party of Dommes are obliged to disguise themselves as slave-girls in order to be smuggled into a Gorean city. May the Goddesses forgive me for that; it was all in the service of plot.
That reminds me i have some suggestions for casting, when the movie comes out.
She Shall Have Music is available as an e-book on Amazon.
[update, 2018: i have learnt a good deal since starting this blog, and have begun to find some of what i was looking for. See later posts for details – this one, for example.]
