Steve Berman write to let me know that two Lethe Press titles have been selected in the Over The Rainbow Project’s list of top LGBT books for 2013. The successful books are:
- Heiresses of Russ 2011, JoSelle Vanderhooft & Steve Berman, eds.
- You Will Meet a Stranger Far from Home, Alex Jeffers
Also on the list are Mike, Linda & Louise Carey’s The Steel Seraglio (ChiZine), which for contractual reasons that benefit Mike and his family I’m sadly unable to have in the bookstore; Martin Eden’s fabulous LGBT superhero comic, Spandex (Titan); the latest volume of Batwoman; and Kate Bronstein’s A Queer and Pleasant Danger.
In celebration of his successes, Steve is offering the two Lethe books half price. I’ve not read Alex Jeffers’ book yet, but Heiresses of Russ is great, featuring fabulous stories by Ellen Kushner and N.K. Jemisin as well as Rachel Swirsky’s Nebula-winning “The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers beneath the Queen’s Window”.
