It’s officially Pride Month and we are spotlighting some of our recent queer titles to kick off a month of June reading!
SPEAR by Nicola Griffith
An Indie Next pick!
“This fresh, emotionally immediate queer spin on the Medieval tale of Percival and the Holy Grail reaffirms Griffith (SO LUCKY) as a consummate storyteller.”–Publishers Weekly
CALL ME CASSANDRA by Marcial Gala
“The appearance of mythical beings during opportune times, Raúl’s pitiless predictions, and the unfolding events of a fraught time in Cuban history contribute to the power of Gala’s creative spin on an indelible myth and imaginative, memorable, and heartbreaking tale of identity and fatalism.”–Booklist, starred review
MANYWHERE: Stories by Morgan Thomas
“Thomas’s visionary and keenly observed debut collection concerns itself with searchers (the book is dedicated to ‘anyone who’s gone looking for themselves in the archives’)…This profoundly illuminates how the characters come by the stories they tell and those they choose to tell themselves.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
DEFENESTRATE by Renée Branum
“A twin brother and sister work to overcome their family’s superstition as well as their own personal demons…A serious story, luminously told.”–Kirkus Reviews
LEAD ME ASTRAY by Sondi Warner
“Warner (DESERVING) launches her Overlay City series with a frenetic polyamorous paranormal romance wrapped inside a thriller set in a supernatural nexus existing in the same space as New Orleans”–Publishers Weekly
