We are living in a golden age of small press publishing and one of the best examples of this is Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, a biannual publication produced by Gavin Grant and Kelly Link. As Dan Chaon states in the introduction, LCRW has been an outlet for speculative fiction since 1996, be it fantasy, horror, science fiction, or any other genre tainted work that the academic literati look down on with disdain. The Best of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet is an outstanding collection of these stories, essays and poetry that proves genre writing can be literature.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: After more than a decade of publishing on the fringe, the twice-yearly published 'zine known as Lady Churchhill's Rosebud Wristlet ("LCRW") goes legit with this anthology. A mix of poetry, nonfiction, and particularly speculative fiction, LCRW has attracted a cavalcade of great writers--the likes of Karen Russell, Jeffrey Ford, and Nalo Hopkinson--and won acclaim from underground and mainstream media outlets alike. And, the book is exactly what its title promises, a selection of the very best of this strange and wonderful 'zine, ready to be discovered by a wider readership.
