Suspect thoughts voted Best of the Bay 2004…
Best Brand-New, Badass, Superqueer Press
With its wide-open definition of the word queer and fearless publishing choices that ricochet from risky to risqu�, San Francisco’s Suspect Thoughts Press has made the book world a more interesting place to inhabit. First slammed onto the map by Pulling Taffy, Matt Bernstein Sycamore’s experimental memoir, Suspect Thoughts has swiftly become the hot press for connoisseurs of transgressive, intelligent literature. In the coming months we can look forward to works like Bullets and Butterflies, queer spoken word poetry edited by New York City glam-slammer Emanuel Xavier; The Beautifully Worthless, Ali Liebegott’s long-awaited epic road poem; and I Do/I Don’t: Queers on Marriage, an anthology put together by publisher Greg Wharton and editor Ian Philips. And as if serving a readership of misfit queers weren’t enough, Wharton and Philips � stellar writers themselves � have rounded up a gang of authors with good taste in storytelling to judge Suspect Thoughts’ queer-novel search, which gives unpublished scribes a shot at a first book with the upstart press. –San Francisco Bay Gaurdian
