do you know of any sci-fi books w/ bisexual protagonists that sold well and would be considered successful (even in the loosest sense of the word)? I know the Adaptation duology, but I can't find anything else. this is for a post on mogii representation in ya lit, specifically how silly it is that some people are calling divergent sci-fi's first bi allegory when there are sci-fi books w/ canon bi characters that have done well.
Here are a few that come to mind, mostly YA but some adult:
Otherbound by Corrine Duyvis - bisexual sci-fi/fantasy
Proxy by Alex London - gay sci-fi dystopian
Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith - bisexual sci-fi/horror
The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson - bisexual sci-fi/dystopian
Adaptation and Inheritance by Malinda Lo - bisexual sci-fi
Pantomime and Shadowplay by Laura Lam - trans/intersex steampunk fantasy
The Stars Change by Mary Anne Mohanraj - all kinda queer sci-fi
Saga by Brian K. Vaughan - all kinda queer sci-fi graphic novel series
Love In The Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block - all kinda queer sci-fi mythology retelling
Beyond the Binary: Genderqueer and Sexually Fluid Speculative Fiction edited by Brit Mandelo - won last year’s Bisexual Book Award in speculative fiction.
If you find more, please send them my way! Good luck!
