All about my new short fiction collection

A Day at the Inn, A Night at the Palace and Other Stories due in the next week or 2 here from
Lethe Press. As previously noted, these are my previously uncollected fantasy and historical short stories and novellas with lesbian/queer female protagonists. There's no erotica in this collection, BTW.
