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 Burgoine 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.
