what book's worth a prize this year?

The deadline for submitting nominees for the Lambda Literary Award is rapidly approaching (it's Tuesday). So this is your last chance to nudge authors and publishers to submit books for consideration.

What was your favourite f/sf book with LGBT characters this year? What memoir made you thoughtful? What queer poetry made your heart thump? Any YA fiction grab you?
