    One of my favourite things about the end of the year is publication of short-lists, best-of-lists, and award nominees. Sometimes it's just nice to see a book you enjoyed be recognized, but it's even more exciting to gain some exposure to new reads you might have otherwise missed.

    There's still another month to go for the Lambda Literary Award nominations, but here's a list of the TRANSGENDER nominees so far:


    - I am J by Cris Beam 
    - Prurient Anarchic Omnibus by j/j Hastain 
    - Static L.A. by Witt 
    - Stealth by Samuel Ace & Maureen Seaton 
    - The Butterfly and the Flame by Dana De Young (reviewed in issue 9 of Frock)
    - The Empress Sword by Paulette Jaxton 


    - In From the Wilderness, Sherman (She-r-Man) by David E. Weekley 
    - Nina Here Nor There by Nick Krieger 
    - Not Your Average American Girl by Christine Beatty (reviewed in the current issue of Frock)
    - Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels by Justin Vivian Bond (reviewed in the current issue of Frock)
    - Transfigurations by Jana Marcus 

    Have you read any of the nominees? If so, we'd love to know what you thought of them. Have a favourite read from 2011 that hasn't been nominated? If so, please share!
