"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane
I wrote Wolves of Nakesht as a reply to the trashing I saw going on in the feminist community in 1978. The story was published in November 1979 in the anthology Amazons! edited by Jessica Amanda Salmonson. The anthology took the World Fantasy Award for Best Anthology in 1980.
While on the surface it is just a rousing adventure tale, thematically it is about rejection and bigotry. Have a look at it.
