And, of course, co-editor Lynne and I will be launching the book at C2E2 this coming weekend in Chicago. Our panel is scheduled on Sunday, April 15th, at noon. Signings will take place from 1-2 and 2-3, afterwards. due to limited table space.

  1. I loved the book!

    “Kitty Queer” was moving and really is making me think about why I did not notice the sexual context of Kitty’s relationships with Illyana and Rachel (I’m straight and most of my friends are straight…).

  2. Aw, thank you!
