We don't usually flag up informal reader reviews on 'Goodreads' or other similar sites, simply because there are so many of them and it would be impossible to keep track, but we've just been made aware of one which is really too wonderful not to share - so hopefully we can be forgiven just this once!
'Ije the Devourer of Books' seems to have consumed the entire anthology in a single sitting - what about sleep? we ask - and to have been delighted with it:
I thought the stories were brilliant in the way they depicted the lives touched by the war, the strength of love and the challenge of hidden love at a time of war. I enjoyed reading these and it is another volume of top quality gay literature from Manifold Press.
We can't help being thrilled to received such a lovely review. Sometimes the independent publishing world can be a lonely place, but knowing that our books are out there making friends is all the consolation we need; thank you, Ije!
