The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard




In this dynamic and thought-provoking anthology, edited by trans activists and playwrights Tom Léger and Riley MacLeod, 28 authors converge to showcase the future of trans literature and the next great movements in queer art.

Most of the stories follow a traditional "day in the life" narrative arc, but several slip into other genres. In R. Drew's "The Café," a trans man struggles to be accepted as Sam instead of Samantha; Casey Plett's "Other Women" demonstrates how sex can be an emotional minefield for trans people; and Elliot Devine's "Dean and Teddy" tackles issues of self-image and acceptance. Susan Jane Bigelow's urban fantasy, "Ramona's Demons," introduces a trans woman into otherwise familiar territory; and Mikki Whitworth's "Masks of a Superhero" is about a costumed champion in transition.

The Collection represents the depth and range of tomorrow's finest writers chronicling transgender narratives.
