Review

Author Heather Rose Jones says: "If I had to sum up Lundoff's collection Out of This World: Queer Speculative Fiction Stories in a single word (which would be a totally unfair thing to require me to do) it would be "versatile." This volume touches base on a broad variety of genres and subgenres yet succeeds in being a unified stylistic whole. There is everything from steampunk horror to hard-boiled alien invasion to magical police procedural, each story both drawing lovingly from its literary inspirations and turning them upside down." Book review excerpt, Alpennia

Lambda Award-winning editor Sacchi Green says, "Out of This World suggests entering other worlds. The worlds Lundoff transported me to were well worth visiting, and the distinctive voices of the characters drew me into their stories." Book review excerpt, Goodreads.

Keith John Glaeske of Out in Print says: "Among my favorites in this collection are the Gaylactic Spectrum Award finalist "At the Roots of the World Tree," about an inept, socially awkward clerk of a living bookstore who is forced to forestall Ragnorok, and the collection opener, "Great Reckonings, Little Rooms." Riffing on Virginia Woolf's famous quote about "Shakespeare's sister" Judith, this story reads like one of Shakespeare's own plays with intrigue, crossdressing "identical" fraternal twins, and swordplay; best of all, it finally answers the question as to who actually wrote Shakespeare's works. (Ha! Take that, adherents of Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford!)"

Product Description

Eleven tales of the queer fantastic by award-winning author Catherine Lundoff. A bookstore clerk goes on a quest for the Norns while a couple of mercenaries wake up to some big surprises at their favorite inn. Shakespeare’s sister, Judith, forms an alliance with playwright Christopher Marlowe. A witch attempts the wrong love spell and a young prince meets an irresistible monster. Swordswomen, ghosts, the Queen of the Fay, the occasional gentleman of the evening and other unforgettable characters populate these stories rich and strange. Includes the Gaylactic Spectrum Award finalist “At the Roots of the World Tree” as well as several other stories not previously collected.
