  1. Basically. Anything with less than 3 links means those were the only queer books by Black authors I could find on the site. Some stores’ sites access everything, so I particularly gravitate toward indie titles for those. And a book being highlighted by a particular store in some way (e.g. a staff pick) usually guarantees that’s the one it’s under. But obviously any of these stores are great for whatever!
