... would you be willing to send me some of these if I covered postage? Because there are a couple of things on here that look as though they would be AMAZING for the library I run. In particular, I'm librarian for my university's LGBT+ library, and hang around a lot with the Women's Campaign librarian & help co-run the Disabled Students' Resource Library. So in particular:

The Mammoth Book of Gay Erotica (various)
Towards a Recognition of Androgyny (Carolyn Heilbrun)
Sex in History (Reay Tannahill)
Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim (David Sedaris)
Becoming a Man (Paul Monette)
Coming to Power; The Second Coming (SAMOIS)
Reinventing Womanhood (Carolyn Heilbrun)

Coming to Power the LGBT+ library actually already has a copy of (though that's not true of The Second Coming), but I am pretty certain the Women's library would be delighted with a copy.

Wow, I think that's more than we came up with when getting some other stuff sent over from the US (and sorry for the lack of responses to you: I've been struggling with brain/internet connectivity over much of the last week). So - yes, please do pass on to someone else, and very sorry for the delay. <3

I'll take The Diamond Age if no one else wants it. It can live on the shelf with all the other Stephenson I can't quite bring myself to finish reading!

That does sound promising :) Thank you! Do you have firm(ish) dates yet? My mom is making vague noises about visiting sometime that month.

I work in Palo Alto with a flexible schedule (and live in Pacifica), so I bet we could make the beginnings or ends of our work days coincide. My one firm plan this week is a ~6:30pm writing excursion on Thursday at Happy Donuts off El Camino Real in Palo Alto; all else is either negotiable or last-minute.

It should work excellently, and I see it should be decent to find from work.

University Ave is the one that makes me mutter imprecations about cardinals under my breath (or not so under) the whole time.
