Read the Last Issue of Lambda Book Report Online

The Lambda Literary Foundation (LLF) has just released the last issue in this incarnation of the Lambda Book Report. It's yours for the reading at:

Readers are welcome to print out copies of the issue to read off line at their leisure.

The double issue was in production last June when publication of both the Lambda Book Report and the James White Review was suspended. With the support of both the LLF staff and Board of Directors, BTWOF publisher Carol Seajay (that would be yours truly) was able to snatch the issue from the jaws of oblivion, facilitate the completion of the issue, and bring it to online publication.

"It's a great issue," Seajay said. "As a publisher I have quite a vivid understanding of how much work and how many dreams go into each issue of a book review, and I hated the idea of all this work ending up in a dumpster somewhere. So when I heard that the issue was 'nearly ready to go' I thought, 'We can save it.' Everyone pitched in and did all the work they normally would, then did a bit extra to accommodate the specifics of online publishing, and we did it. Now all of the articles, reviews, essays, and even the ads, are available online for everyone to enjoy."

While an online issue of an 80-page magazine is a bit different than BTWOF's usual publishing style, we hope that our readers will find plenty to enjoy in this unique, one-time offering and will agree with us that it was worth a deviation from our regular publishing format.

More LLF News: The Foundation has announced the development of a new web site that will offer expanded services for the LGBTQ literary communities. The new site will be at The Board also reports that the Lambda Literary Awards are on track for next spring and that long-time editor Patrick Merla will assume independent control and publication of the James White Review.

I hope you enjoy this unique issue.

Yours in spreading the words,
Carol Seajay
