The Drag Queen of Elfland

This Circlet title from 1997, part of the Ultra Violet Library imprint for queer fantasy and science fiction, is now available in digital format for the first time. The Drag Queen of Elfland is a collection of fantastical stories imbued with a refreshingly queer sensibility. These seventeen stories feature a lesbian werewolf taking back the night, a gay vampire discovering the perils of going to the gym (too many mirrors, for starters), a young lord’s son undertaking a quest to obtain a magical sword and win the heart of the boy he loves, and much more. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, sometimes sexy, and always imaginative, these stories show readers the secret worlds that lurk beneath the surface of our own.

Lawrence Schimel has published over 100 books as author or anthologist, including The Future is Queer (Arsenal Pulp), Things Invisible to See: Lesbian and Gay Tales of Magic Realism (Circlet), Two Boys in Love (Seventh Window), and Fairy Tales for Writers (A Midsummer Night’s Press). He has twice won the Lambda Literary Award, for First Person Queer (Arsenal Pulp) and PoMoSexuals: Challenging Assumptions about Gender and Sexuality (Cleis), and has also won the Spectrum, the Independent Publisher Book Award, the Rhysling, and other awards. He lives in Madrid, Spain, where he works as a Spanish->English translator.
