Her work addresses feminist issues of power in mythology and comic book cultures, turning fairy tale stepmothers into empathetic characters, and holding up a mirror to contemporary American culture's images of powerful women. Gailey's second full-length book of poetry, She Returns to the Floating World, deals with feminine transformations in the personae of characters from Japanese folk tales, anime, and manga. The Robot Scientist's Daughter deals more with ecological issues, with a specific focus on the potential dangers of the nuclear industry, set against the backdrop of growing up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Her most recent book, Field Guide to the End of the World, "delivers a whimsical look at our culture’s obsession with apocalypse as well as a thoughtful reflection on our resources in the face of disasters both large and small, personal and public."Field Guide to the End of the World won the 2017 Elgin Award from the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association.
