Radclyffe (editor). “Best Lesbian Romance 2012”, Cleis Press, 2012.
A New Collection
I really cannot think of anyone better suited to edit this collection of lesbian romantic short stories. Radclyffe has done a wonderful job of selecting the 17 stories that make up this anthology. Every kind of love is here and there is something for everyone and for every taste. The authors included are Anna Meadows, Radclyffe herself, of course Rachel Kramer Bussel, Cheyenne Blue, Geneva King, Anna Watson, Theda Hudson, Sheree L. Greer, Catherine Paulssen, JL Merrow, Angela Vitale, Giselle Renard, Lee Lynch, Lisabet Sarai, Siobhan Colman, D. Jackson Leigh and Evan Mora.
The book is a celebration of love in all of its aspects and forms and the key here is romance. Many times we forget that romance plays a big part in our sexual lives and even if it is fleeting, it is there and we certainly see that here.
