Love after the End wins Lambda Literary Award
Love after the End: An Anthology of Two-Spirit and Indigiqueer Speculative Fiction, edited by Joshua Whitehead, has won the 2021 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Anthology!
The award was announced during a virtual ceremony held on June 1. Held annually since 1989, the Lambda Literary Awards honour the year's best LGBTQ+ books.
In a starred review, Booklist said of Love after the End: "These stories are a welcome breath of fresh air in the often hyperindividualist, survivalist subgenre of postapocalyptic fiction, and are essential reading for anyone committed to the possibilities of sf as a means to create new and different futures."
This is Joshua's second Lambda Literary Award; his first came in 2019 when Jonny Appleseed won in the category of Gay Fiction.
Congratulations to Joshua and all the contributors!
