By Her Pen She Conquers by Catherine Lundoff

The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 35e with Heather Rose Jones

The second story in our 2019 fiction series: "By Her Pen She Conquers" by previous LHMP author Catherine Lundoff.

Catherine is an award-winning writer, editor, and publisher from Minneapolis. She is the author of the queer werewolf novel Silver Moon and the collection Out of This World: Queer Speculative Fiction Stories and is the editor of the fantastical pirate anthology Scourge of the Seas of Time (and Space), as well as having a number of published short stories in many genres. She is also the publisher of Queen of Swords Press, a genre fiction publisher specializing in fiction from out of this world.

Update Note: I unintentionally truncated the title to "By Her Pen" in the original post and recording. I apologize deeply to Catherine Lundoff for this mistake and have corrected it in all the places I have access to, but the audio version retains the shorter title.

A transcript of this podcast is available here.
