Summary

Do you want to write a science fiction or fantasy setting which provides for extensive body modification through the use of magic or cool technology, but you're wondering how to include transgender people in your world without falling back on offensive stereotypes or erasing their existence altogether?  
This guidebook contains a series of essays covering settings which feature fast, easy, and widely-accessible body alteration, including the futuristic BodyTron5000 ("step right in and we'll jiffy up a uterus!") and fantastical trips to the Gender Witch for magic potions. These settings have ripple effects on trans people both on and off the page, and writers must consider multiple angles of gender presentation and body diversity when creating new worlds. This resource also contains guidelines for role-players and dungeon masters on how to respectfully incorporate transgender characters and issues into fictional game worlds and playing sessions.

    Discover the origins, lore and meanings of botanical names with this lexicon of “pithy explanations of words that confront every plant tag reader” (The New York Times Book Review). 
     
    For more than a decade, gardeners have been turning to Bill Neal’s beautiful little book Gardener's Latin. Neal understood that as Latin terms began appearing with increasing frequency on nursery tags and gardening catalogs, gardeners would need help. So he weeded through the Latin words that describe and distinguish among plants and flowers and compiled a volume of select, brief, clear definitions. 
     
    Learning to navigate the jungles of botanical Latin will not only make you an expert in identification, but also teach you a great deal about the plants themselves. Gardener's Latin leads you down the path from abbreviatus to zonatus, turning aside here and there to point out little-known horticultural facts and fables and the wisdom of gardeners from Virgil to Vita Sackville-West.
