I was contacted by the person who is trying to have Chris Anne Wolfe's stories reissued and I asked her to send me something that I could share with you. If you like fantasy stories and haven't read Wolfe's work, you should give it a try. Unfortunately, she passed away a few years ago, but she left some terrific stories behind.
The Lost Works of Chris Anne Wolfe
Two Amazons of Aggar Books and Others Discovered
by Beloved Lesbian/Feminist Author
Port Orchard, Washington
After more than ten years of being sealed safely away, the nearly 7,000 pages of “lost writings” by lesbian/feminist author Chris Anne Wolfe (Shadows of Aggar, Roses & Thorns, et al) are being organized, transcribed, and prepared for publication by a small team of passionate volunteers.
“Fans would write or call and ask when the next Aggar book would be released. For the longest time, we had no idea what to tell them,” explains Jennifer DiMarco, one of three staff of Amazons Unite, a not-for-profit formed exclusively to publish Wolfe’s books. “The fans didn’t even know there are actually two more Aggar books plus a dozen other novels.”
Amazons Unite has already made huge progress, publishing new editions of Annabel & I, Roses & Thorns, and even Shadows of Aggar and Fires of Aggar. The first two Aggar books feature full-color interior illustrations by Skye Montague, who came to know Wolfe’s work through Amazons Unite. “There’s an entirely new generation of lesbian readers waiting to discover Chris Anne Wolfe and her Amazons and Shadows,” Skye offers. “Getting all her books into the hands of readers is our ultimate goal.”
Since Wolfe’s books tend to be lengthy (Shadows of Aggar is over 100,000 words), Amazons Unite is keeping costs down by releasing editions exclusively as ebooks for the Kindle and iOS through Amazon.com. Rebecca Fitzgerald, the third volunteer at Amazons Unite, says, “We’re not pricing any of the editions higher than $4.99. We want everyone to be able to enjoy these adventures.”
Fans new and old are encouraged to help crowd-fund the endeavor and learn more about the “lost writings” online and at Facebook.
