Originally issued by Chicago’s Twilight Tales Books in 2003, Vigilantes of Love has been out of print for several years. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release, we’ve gone back and re-imagined the cover, keeping many of the original elements, but also adding and improving elements. The new edition also features a new preface and six additional stories that were considered but ultimately not included in the original edition due to space limitations.
