News from a happy editor’s desk

Timothy J. Lambert and I have edited a second anthology for Cleis Press, Foolish Hearts: New Gay Fiction. We don’t have an exact publication date yet, but we’re too excited not to share the table of contents. The collection includes seventeen stories by some of our favorite voices writing fiction today. We hope you’ll find some of your favorites, too, and enjoy, as we did, stories from new voices. As soon as we have cover art and a release date, we’ll share.

And for those of you who’ve wished for more from Timothy James Beck, there are a couple of stories in this collection from two of the TJB writers.

    Hi there!

    Your wonderful announcement came by way of ‘Nathan Bugoine’s LJ, and can I say that as a reader I am ecstatic at your news. Fool for Love is one of my favourite books of all time and I cannot wait to read your second anthology. So happy you decided to do this again. :)

      Thank you so very much! It was wonderful to get more good stories from some of the FFL contributors. We’re really excited and can’t wait for their readers to rediscover them and the new contributors, too.
