I'm very very glad to see I wasn't the only one bothered by Dust's handling of sexuality, when every other reviewer I've seen seemed to enjoy it. I keep going back to Bear's books because the worldbuilding is so awesome and full of potential, and then I bounce off the characterization and remember why I had a problem with her writing in the first place.

And I am so sick of how I can't think of a single sff novel with a lesbian character, no matter how minor, in which said character doesn't die tragically. Gay men might get to survive after sufficient angst and bad hurt/comfort fic tragedy, but lesbians? nuh-uh.
