Fat Girl in a Strange Land goes out of print 2/17Feb 4th, 2015 | By Bart Leib | Category: CG Blog
The Crossed Genres anthology Fat Girl in a Strange Land will go out of print on February 17 after three years in print.
Edited by CG co-publishers Kay T. Holt and Bart R. Leib, Fat Girl in a Strange Land contains 14 stories in which fat women take center stage. Rather than being the best friend, or the comic relief, or existing solely to be the butt of vicious, hurtful jokes, these women lead their own stories, as they explore worlds to which they’ve never been. “This,” Lillian Cohen-Moore wrote in her review, “is for everyone who wanted a smart, determined female protagonist as teenagers.”
With stories from Sabrina Vourvoulias, Jennifer Brozek, Barbara Krasnoff, Lauren C. Teffeau, and many more, plus the wonderful cover art by Lili Ibrahim, Fat Girl in a Strange Land is challenging, surprising, and fun. We’ve loved having it to offer to readers – and loved the looks people have given when they first read the title – and we’re sad to see it go.
You can still purchase a copy of Fat Girl in a Strange Land through February 16. Visit the dedicated page for details and links.
