Building Fires in the Snow: A Collection of Alaska LGBTQ Short Fiction and Poetry

Editor: Lucian Childs

Paperback

Price: $29.95

Overview

Diversity has always been central to Alaska identity, as the state’s population consists of people with many different backgrounds, viewpoints, and life experiences. This book opens a window into these diverse lives, gathering stories and poems about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer life into a brilliant, path-breaking anthology.
In these pages we see the panoply of LGBTQ life in Alaska today, from the quotidian urban adventures of a family–shopping, going out, working–to intimate encounters with Alaska’s breathtaking natural beauty. At a time of great change and major strides in LGBTQ civil rights, Building Fires in the Snow shows us an Alaska that shatters stereotypes and reveals a side of Alaska that’s been little seen until now.

"Though it may seem that there is an anthology for everything these days, Building Fires in the Snow is truly unique: a collection of short fiction and poetry by LGBTQ Alaskans. However, to recognize this book for its novelty alone would be to sell it short. The real pleasure of this engaging anthology is in its depiction of the gay experience out of the typical milieu, showing the rich diversity of gay life throughout the world. . . . A beautiful reminder that there is more to the LBTQ world than can ever be dreamed of in white New York alone."
