QSFer Jamie Zaccaria has a new queer speculative fiction collection out (horror, dark fantasy, thriller – bi, gay, lesbian): Lavender Speculation.
Enter if you’re daring and feel these tales raise goosebumps along your arms as they take you from modern New Jersey to fairytale lands and back again. From witches to werecats and spirits to surgeries, this collection puts queer women front and center in some of the most popular subgenres of speculative fiction. Horror, dark fantasy, and magical realism coalesce in this stunning collection of all things dark and divergent.
