What it says on the tin: three fabulous fantasy books from 2020 that no one seems to be talking about!
We have WITCHES, we have ALIENS, we have SUPERVILLAINS, we have 21 books you absolutely must not miss!
Five wonderful fantasy books with transgender main characters!
More and more, we’re having an easier time finding cis queer characters in Fantasy – not an easy time; there’s still not enough of them, and publishers often don’t advertise the fact that a book is queer.
