  1. Samuel R. Delany’s book “Big Joe” is nominated in the LGBTQ Erotica category.

  2. “Why Labelle Matters” might be of interest to someone looking at Afro-futurism. I’ve got it on hold at the library and I was wondering about the author’s linking.
    Also, I love Labelle and their music takes me back.
