“After reading Ann McMan’s short story collection, Sidecar, I can say with confidence that she is one of my favorite lesbian romance authors.”—Jill Guccini, AfterEllen

Ann McMan burst onto the lesbian literary scene in 2011 with worldwide bestsellers Jericho and Dust. Now comes Sidecar, a fast and funny compilation of short stories that are full of the rich detail, witty humor, jagged verbal jousting, and joyous intellectual tete-a-tete that have become her calling card. You’ll reconnect with Syd, Maddie, and the whole Jericho gang, spend the night with Diz and Clarissa, play dress up with Grace and Abbie, and finally go mano y mano with Kate and Shawn in the novella, Bottle Rocket. Featuring an introduction by Salem West, settle in for a fast and funny ride with Sidecar.

Sidecar features the stories V1:  A Valentine’s Day Odyssey, Bottle Rocket, Falling from Grace, and Nevermore!

V1: A Valentine’s Day Odyssey was The Athenaeum’s #89 Story of 2011

Nevermore! was selected by readers as the winner of the The Royal Academy of Bards 2011 Bard Challenge #26: Quoth The Raven, Nevermore.
