An anthology of this sort is only possible through the support of many people. I owe a singular debt of gratitude to my father Prof. K. K. Sharma for always guiding and encouraging me at every academic juncture in my life. I would like to thank Kanji Patel and Naushil Mehta for guiding me through Gujarati material. I am also grateful to DC Books (Kottayam) for giving me rights to publish the short story, A Lesbian Cow and excerpts from Shabdangal for one edition. I must also record my grateful thanks to the editor of Indian Literature who has given me permission to publish from Indian Literature’s special volume on same-sex fiction, edited by me. I am extremely obliged to the publisher, Prakashan Sansthan (New Delhi), for giving me rights to publish from Viswa Sahitya: Chuninda Rachnayen edited by Devendra Choubey and translated by Akhlaq Ahmad Aahan.
