Lambda Literary Awards give nod to Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin
March 4, 2015 — The prestigious Lambda Literary Awards has honored Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin, authored by Ron J. Suresha and published last year by Lethe Press, a Finalist for Best Bisexual Fiction.
Praise Mullah! I’m quite thrilled to announce that my book of bawdy Turkish folklore, Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin was named a Finalist in the Bisexual Fiction category of this year’s Lambda Literary Foundation Awards. (The book was submitted in Bi Nonfiction but was switched over …)
I’d especially like to thank Steve Berman for his support of this long-running project for a book I doubt anyone else would have taken a chance on publishing.
As well, the Bear Bones Books novel Salvation, by Jeff Mann and the BBB anthology The Bears of Winter, edited by Jerry L. Wheeler, were named Finalists in the Gay Romance and Gay Erotica categories. I’m so very proud to have had a hand in the publication of these two excellent books.
Mazel tov also to my friends, colleagues, and associates who were also honored. See you in May!
Additionally, the author wishes to thank his husband, Rocco, for his unending support of this peculiar work.
When asked for a comment, Mullah Nasruddin said, “I owe this honor to my beloved little gray donkey, Karakacan, without which I would have just been considered another old wise fool.”
The book is the sequel to The Uncommon Sense of the Immortal Mullah Nasruddin, by the same author and publisher, which was given two national storytelling awards.
The awards will be announced June 1st in a gala ceremony in New York City.
