Okay, hopefully that’s a good start ❤

the OP of the screenshotted tweet is on tumblr, and an author too, having put out Chameleon Moon and related stories. 

I’m really relieved that both RoAnna and Heather’s books are linked on this post because if their tweets were going to be circulating around Tumblr with no way to indicate that Heather’s written a three-book (so far) fantasy series about magical lesbians and bi women in early 19th century Central Europe and RoAnna writes hopeful superhero dystopians that feature the only f/f/f triad MC’s I can think of in any book, that would have been hecking unfair.

@affablyevil, I hope that helps, but if you want more books, here’s a list I made a while ago of ten SFF f/f’s where they don’t die, and I am continually reading more and recommending more. (Have you heard of Flowers of Luna? College f/f set at fashion design college on the moon.)

[image description: a tweet from RoAnna Sylver (@RoAnna Syvler) reading “This June, please rememeber that there are more LGBT books than the ones you see everywhere put out by the Big 5, ad indies are amazing/worthy.” The next reblog is a tweet from Heather Rose Jones (@heatherrosejones) reading: “Making a list of queer SFF for Pride Month? Remember to look outside the mainstream presses. Don’t shut queer publishers out of queer lit.”]

Here’s a bunch of Goodreads lists that might help! 

Speculative Fiction (SFF and Horror):

And some more lists, including a whole history of LGBT SFF!

Also worth checking out is Queership!

this is an excellent post

I have been searching for books not about white males for so long and this is the answer to my prayers.

Check out my queer reading list for a selection of SF&F recommendations that you can filter by the type of representation you’re looking for. Suggest a new book to go on the list and you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win a book of your choice from the list.
