Advance Praise

• The first anthology of its kind in Wales, which finally sheds light on a largely hidden queer cultural history with the careful selection of over 40 short stories (1837-2018) including work by John Sam Jones, Sian James, Rhys Davies, Deborah Kay Davies, Aled Islwyn, and Kate North. • New translations of Kate Roberts, Mihangel Morgan, Jane Edwards, Pennar Davies and Dylan Huw make available their compelling stories for the first time to a non-Welsh speaking readership. • Previously unpublished works by writers such as Margiad Evans and Ken Etheridge appear alongside better known favourites. • An accessible but scholarly introduction places the writers and their stories in their historical and literary contexts.
