In this exciting new anthology, fourteen talented authors write gay and lesbian people back into history by telling stories about characters who managed to find a way to influence their worlds. Despite being overlooked, denied, and persecuted, queer people all through time have found a way to live and to love, in spite of social values and laws. Some of the stories are entertaining, heartwarming, and positive, but a few are dark and tragic. The editors hope that the variety and diversity of stories will affirm queer existence and propel readers to an understanding that we have always been here, throughout time and history.

About the Author

LORI L. LAKE has edited several anthologies including the Lambda Literary Award Finalist, The Milk of Human Kindness: Lesbian Authors Write About Mothers and Daughters; the Goldie Award Finalist, Romance for Life; and the Goldie Award-winning Lesbians on the Loose: Crime Writers on the Lam. She is the author of two collections of her own stories, Stepping Out and Shimmer. Lori has edited a great many novels and stories for various small presses. She teaches writing, runs a small press, and enjoys coaching aspiring writers. She and her partner (the chief cook and bottle washer) run writing retreats at Rockaway Beach on the Oregon coast. Lori was born in Oregon, spent 26 years in the snowy Twin Cities, and since 2009 lives in Portland, Oregon again.

CHRISTOPHER HAWTHORNE MOSS is a long-time historical researcher and writer, author of several novels including 2014’s Beloved Pilgrim and 2016’s A Fine Bromance. A first book, Loving the Goddess Within: Sex Magick for Women was published in 1992, and a 25th anniversary edition will be issued in 2017. Christopher has edited and written for many history websites over the years. Under the previous name of Nan Hawthorne, he’s researched, written, and edited hundreds of articles published on diverse topics such as disabilities, employment, GLBTQ history, small business, arts and crafts, nonprofit management, and transgender issues. Hawthorne is legally blind but says he “cannot sit still long enough to let that slow me down.” With his long-time spouse and their doted-upon cats, he lives in the Pacific Northwest and spends time writing novels, researching early medieval England, and supporting authors in the indie book publishing industry. Christopher came up with the idea to collaborate with Lori to assemble this collection, and this is his first foray into editing an anthology.
