Queer Universes (eds: Pearson, Hollinger & Gordon) is an anthology about sexualities in science fiction and it contains some pretty brilliant stuff, with varying levels of picking apart heavy theory required for enjoyment, from the entirely straightforward and entertaining to "I had to read a bunch of the sentences in this twice but it was fascinating." Sure, I didn't love absolutely every article, but the proportion of the book I felt like I got something out of was pretty high.

Otherwise I've been trying to read books and finding myself in rather the wrong mood. Theory seems to be going better than fiction, oddly enough, so maybe I'll try Tiina Rosenberg's Byxbegär next (about women wearing men's clothes in theater).

Though I do have a little list of authors who write some kind of queer sci-fi that I may want to check out too. If I can find them.

(I think the exams went OK, but I'm waiting on results.)
