So how many books have you read this year about a queer Muslim woman going on a quest to save her sister, fighting racist magicians, helping a gay dragon rescue his boyfriend & battling the Fairy Queen on the way? None? You could start with THE TRUE QUEEN! (link: https://zencho.org/the-true-queen/) zencho.org/the-true-queen/


I believe I mentioned earlier, Mercedes Lackey's latest "Family of Spies" Valdemar book has an ace main character.

That's kind of the universal experience of anyone whom society considers defective, I think.

Just finished The Deep and Dark Blue by Niki Smith. I didn't realize it was a graphic novel. The story gets told, but the pictures don't have the depth to express what they want to say. It is probably told at the level of school child, so I shouldn't expect as much as I do.
