Trans* & Nonbinary Lending Library -The Black Emerald by Jeanne Thornton (she/her) book cover

A high schooler finds her drawings corrupted by a haunted stone she inherits from a suicidal underground cartoonist. A video game addict discovers a vast, hidden dimension to colonize in the walls of his girlfriend’s apartment. A philosophy student seeks anonymous Craigslist sex with the ubiquitous devil that stalks her. In this short fiction collection from Jeanne Thornton, author of The Dream of Doctor Bantam (a Lambda Literary Award finalist), reality and relationships blur, creating a queer pulp experience with a literary sensibility, a hallucinatory journey into despair… and, possibly, toward hope.
