It seems this is being published in November but only in the US (found out about it from Aliette de Bodard's newsletter).

However, what a cover :o
I know that american covers are always worse/strange, but for this I have no words, I mean, it's not even a graphic novel!!

I'm "She Who Reigns Over Us All In Crimson Cheer", according to Peat!

That is a disappointing cover , Looks like it just focus on romance and forgotten the adventure bit of the story.

Well, the original seed for the anthology was someone tweeting about "Noble High Femme x Dashing Sword Lesbian, The Anthology" so the romance is an essential part of the whole concept.

I think it's quite a charming illustration, hitting lots of effusive fantasy elements, though I don't much like the purple background. But perhaps that is a conscious "queer" marker.

Quite funny me and Bea can’t agree  much on books but when it comes to book covers we are in total agreement 😁

It's...not quite the cover I would have gone for either.
