A Boxful of Ideas is the latest and most ambitious an­thol­ogy from Gay Authors Work­shop. There’s a strong selection of short stories, poems, all with a current take on topics of interest. It’s a superb anthology not just of good stories filled with humor, honesty and well written plots that will connect with all Queers readers, but also an anthology of style and prose. It has range and ambition and also a cozy comfortable edge. I enjoyed reading it all.

Paradise Press, founded 1999, is run by a collective and has published over forty titles.

Authors featured in this anthology include:

  • Greg Woods, Emeritus Professor of Gay and Les­bian Studies at Nottingham Trent Uni­versity
  • Jeremy Kingston, former theatre critic of The Times
  • Chris Beckett, prize-winning poet and author of Ethiopia Boy
  • V. G. Lee, comedian, novelist, winner of the Ultimate Planet Award for established writer
  • Donald West, psychiatrist, author of one of the first British books on homosexuality

Out now, Paperback
