Look at that. It’s fantastic.

I can’t tell you which essays are my favorites. It might unfairly prejudice you one way or another. But I can say that in Chicks Dig Comics, every reviewer had different favorites. The strength of these books is the diversity of point of view. It’s in the way that a broader fannish experience is represented, a more nuanced and threaded fannish voice is heard.

Queers Dig Time Lords is available for pre-order at all the usual places and suspects. Order it, read it, and find the recognition and representation we have worked to create.
