From Publishers Weekly
Genre-blurring stories, poems and articles by a few major authors and a host of relative unknowns appear in this oddly compelling excursion into the realm of the surreal and interstitial. The standouts are a diverse lot: Nalo Hopkinson's exquisitely visceral folkloric allegory "Tan-Tan and Dry Bone," Sarah Monette's darkly romantic "Three Letters from the Queen of Elfland," the hilarious illustrations of Sara Rojo and narration of Lawrence Schimel in "The Well-Dressed Wolf," Richard Butner's appropriately dry "How to Make a Martini." Link and Grant also unabashedly include surprisingly sub-par examples of their own work. With a major SF imprint publishing this hefty anthology, LCRW's times as a low-profile fringe zine may be at an end, though it remains to be seen whether mainstream readers will be convinced to swell the ranks of its relatively few but utterly devoted subscribers.

Praise for LADY CHURCHILL’S ROSEBUD WRISTLET
“Tiny but celebrated.”
–The Washington Post
“Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet never fails to hook me.”
“What is in this container?” Is it “dwarves and faeries and hobgoblins sitting around drinking mead out of acorns?” Or “post-nuclear holocaust cannibal mutants with a taste for sexy college students?” Perhaps it’s something even more sinister, some sort of “weird or speculative fiction.”
