I should add that David Rimmer opened After Stonewall Books in 1990. I had the honour of reading there for the first time recently at "Meet the Authors", an event that as was part of Ottawa Capital Pride. My fine company included 'Nathan Burgoine, Stevie Mikayne and Christian Baines.
Their Indiegogo campaign is here.
And my fine pubilsher, Lethe Press, also needs your help. Publisher Steve Berman was brave enough to take a chance on my novel Town & Train, so I'm very proud to be part of their speculative fiction that "is imaginative and strange and wondrous."
In their own words:
Lethe Press began in 2001 as a home for queer and speculative fiction. Since then we have won numerous awards and acclaim for our books. Many readers feel like outsiders because of the sexual identity--our books are welcome reliefs to this problem; the gay and lesbian protagonists in our books have adventures, chase danger, fall in love, lead rich lives, and overcome the taint of homophobia. Our speculative fiction is imaginative and strange and wondrous.
As 'Nathan says, this is more of a a fundraising process that is more of a subscription and monthly investment. Lethe gets voices out there that readers might never otherwise discover, including Lee Thomas and Dayna Ingram and many others that I am very grateful to have discovered.
