Upright Women Wanted

Sarah Gailey

Gun-toting queer librarians leading a spirited resistance to government propaganda? Don’t knock the concept: this gritty dystopian novella with its Wild West backdrop not only subverts that old trope but makes it relevant to contemporary problems in modern society such as perpetual war and depressed economies. Will appeal to young adults as well as the non-binary LGBOT+ audience.


She wanted that satisfaction. She wanted it for herself wanted it like a half-starved alley-rat watching that table through a window on a bellyaching night. She didn't know how to get it - but she had a feeling that if she stuck with the Librarians for long enough, she might be able to figure it out. How to feast instead of starving.
How to like the person who she was instead of fighting it.
