Read full description of the books:
A solid collection of short stories. Most of them are queer-themed - the odd one out is "A California Death" which doesn't have any queer characters, but is about a widower who is alienated from his two sons in different ways. "Captain Jinx," sort of a California Western version of Sarah Waters-style lesbian historical fiction is not entirely successful because of some stylistic hiccups, but it's an interesting experiment. "Winter Count" gives us a vingnette of tattooed, Denny dying of AIDS (Pansy Division's song "Denny" is based on one of Trebor's poems.) "Faun" and "Skin and Bone" have some cool queer magical realism. 11 stories in all.
It's a shame that Harrington/Southern Tier has gone out of business - one more queer-centric publisher gone; they disappeared shortly after publishing this book.
