Need to buy presents for the LGBT+ bookworm in your life? We've got you covered!

Stan Lee loved Heretic to Housewife by Rahne Alexander. It's an essay collection by Baltimore-based trans writer Rahne Alexander. In ten essays, she connects the dots between her conservative Mormon upbringing and her emergence as a queer, feminist performer. New, $9.99. I think he likes it because Rahne gave him head scratches the first time she met him, and he's a complete attention hog. Buy it here.

Trouble and Her Friends by Melissa Scott is perfect for the artsy lesbian in your life. India Carless, alias Trouble, used to be a computer hacker, but she retired and got out before the feds cracked down on them and what's known as the computer nets. She's now content to run the network for a small artist's co-op... That is, until she finds out someone is using her name for criminal hacking and has to get back in the game for one last killer fight. New, $20. Buy it here.

I loved The Second Mango by Shira Glassman. It's new adult lesbian fantasy. Queen Shulamit never expected to inherit the throne, but he father just died, and she's also coping with being the only lesbian she knows after her girlfriend runs off and severe digestive problems. It's only after meeting Rivka, a warrior from the north that Queen Shulamit develops the strength she needs to help her look for her girlfriend. New, $12. Buy it here.
