Transcript Dear Pointblank Times, I was editor of The Ladder for many many years. I have re-read the PBT article by Amanda about 10 times. I find it interesting, but also it's distressing and upsetting. Let me see where to begin... how about this first sentence: "Lesbians have traditionally played such insignificant and obscure parts in literature that any discussion of lesbianism in novels centers around only a small armload of books." I am sitting in a room in a house about 40 miles east of Kansas City. The room is about 12' by 13', and it is packed, floor to ceiling on 3 walls with lesbian novels...another room in the house has two walls packed with them. First off, I want to meet the person whose arms can carry them all away in one trip. Seriously, parts of the article are provocative and well-done, but lesbians have a proud and enormous body of literature. An illustration of this is the book The City Within, a never reviewed apparently 1963 publication by a never before heard of NYC press. Needless to say, sadly, I didn't hear about it in time to get it into the 1975 edition of The Lesbian in Literature. I like the look of your young publication. We wish you much luck in your Texas adventure and compliment you on finding an interesting and unique name. So many of the publications have look-alike-sound-alike names. Blessings, Gene Damon Bates City, {Ed. note: The Ladder is the oldest lesbian publication in the United States, having published from 1956- 1972. The Lesbian in Literature (2nd edition) is a bibliography which includes hundreds of books in English concerning lesbianism. It is available for $10 from The Ladder, P.O. Box 5025, Washington Station, Reno, Nevada 89503). Dear Sisters, I've just spent the past few days reading, rereading, and marveling over PBT. It is so encouraging to have this kind of publication for gay women. Here in Denton, and particularly at T.W.U., I've felt alone, isolated, and outnumbered. PBT does a lot to alleviate those feelings. Thanks for the effort and good work, and keep it up! C.B.
