Non-Fiction Books on other topics by trans authors
There are of course hundreds, probably thousands, of trans autobiographies that have never been published. This article is limited to those that appear to have been published, at least once, but then disappeared.
- Angela Douglas. Triple Jeopardy: The Autobiography of Angela Lynn Douglas. Sneeds, Floria: Angela Lynn Douglas, 1983.
Joanne Meyerowitz claims to have a copy, and Susan Stryker says that she has seen it. However the book is not in WorldCat, nor in Amazon nor Abe Books, unlike Angela's second book, Hollywood Obsession. Apparently it was self-published in the true sense and sold by Angela herself by mail. There don't seem to be copies available any more.

Lots of gossip about Eddie Murphy tricking with trans women. Published online 1997, removed shortly after, and never seen again.Jamie Lee Hamilton.
