"If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need." - Cicero
Verdant virgins and lush lotharios await readers in this anthology of strange yet sensual stories about men and vegetation. Fantastical fronds cannot resist caressing warm flesh. Sylvan creatures of myth protecting the forest; botanical laboratory experiments run amok; a veteran of the Mexican-American war finds himself entranced by an aesthete's poisonous garden; and an alien paying our planet a visit to sample the greenery.... These fourteen stories promise readers a most tantalizing bedding.

The Year's Best Transgender Speculative Fiction ed.
edited by Bogi Takács
Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Fiction!
As with the first volume of Transcendent, Lethe Press has worked with a wonderful editor to select the best work of genderqueer stories of the fantastical, stranger, horrific, and weird published the prior year. Featuring stories by Merc Rustad, Jeanne Thornton, Brit Mandelo, and others, this anthology offers time-honored tropes of the genre--from genetic manipulation to zombies, portal fantasy to haunts--but told from a perspective that breaks the rigidity of gender and sexuality.
