Take Back Plenty (1990)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0380763958/paranoidcc

Greenland, Colin    

*** Main Bi Character

Category: Science Fiction
Summary: Tabitha Jute is an awesome heroine. She can not only pilot spaceships, she can repair them after crash landings as well. She’s smart and brave and very human. I liked her a lot. I hated the main male character, however, which it made it hard to read the book. Tabitha didn’t care much for him either, and I liked the book much better after she abandoned him on Venus.

Grimwood, Jon Courtenay    

*** Major Lesbian Character

Category: Cyber-punk
Summary: Lesbian characters include the Pope (dead) and her lover who has been pretending to be her sister. The lesbian part is pretty small and comes at the end. Even so, it's an interesting romp of a book.

Huff, Tanya    Lesbian Author!

**** Major Lesbian Character

Category: Military Science Fiction
Summary: The third "Valor" novel. Huff's writing really draws you in. Kerr is awesome. Kerr herself has a male partner, but one of the female recruits has a crush on her. One nice thing about this universe is that one's sexual preferences are of no concern to anyone.

Summary: Second “Valor” book by Huff. I liked the character of Staff Sgt Torin Kerr so much that I missed her for a few days after I finished the book. A quote from the book jacket about her: “As a heroine, Kerr shines. She is cut from the same mold as Ellen Ripley of the Aliens films.”

Kadrey, Richard    

** Major Bi Character

Category: Science Fiction

Invisible Borders (1991)
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0671724770/paranoidcc

Koch, Polly    

* Main Bi Character

Category: Science fiction
Summary: If you like experimental fiction, read this. If you don't mind a book with no discernible plot, this one's for you. If you like books where in a single paragraph a character can be in two times and places with no explanation about how the two are connected or why you suddenly jumped from one to the other, you'll like this one. If you like books where the description goes on and on and on and nothing substantial ever happens, you might enjoy this. If you are like me, though, you'll hate it.
