I just finished reading José Esteban Muñoz’s  Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity.  It is, without a doubt, the best theory book I’ve read this summer.  Muñoz gives new life (and hope) to utopian thinking and illustrates a much more inclusionary form of queer theory than Judith Butler, Eve Sedgwick, Lee Edelman, etc etc etc.  In terms of fiction, my favorite summer read thus far is probably The Greyfriar, by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith.  Steampunk meets urban fantasy–now there’s a winning combination!  Although the plot is too predictable, the alternate reality had me hooked.
