    You Meet Your Soulmate In The Strangest Places

    I highly recommend this charming short story. It's clever, quirky, and satisfying.

    Story

    Absolutely charming... I thoroughly enjoyed it. The suspense built beautifully, and the payoff was better than I could have hoped for. Well done, Zot! Cheers... Gary....

    On Being a Writer and Encountering Angry Readers

    Well said, Thorn. I also write for myself, but there is an intimacy to posting a story on GA I suspect an author (or reader) doesn't experience otherwise. It has its pitfalls for sure, but I like it, especially how readers get so involved. I have learned a thick skin is sometimes necessary, but overall, I find the serial posting and feedback rewarding. Like you, I am no one's bitch... they can rant and rave all they want... but it won't make me change a thing about my characters or stories. That would infect the feeling of pride and satisfaction writing gives me. Cheers... Gary....
  4. I'm glad you posted this, Wings. It was very touching. Loss is a part of life, but it is never easy. Cheers... Gary....

    The Phrase

    Wow. You made me tear up. I'm so sorry for you and any person who is violated in such a way. Powerful and real poetry, my friend. Well done.
  6. Happy Birthday, Buddy!!! I hope you have a great one!

    It's been a while, huh?

    Thank you for being so brutally honest. Your message is powerful, and I hope every single day gets better for you. Gary.

    Chapter 52

  9. "Donnie, put that away. He's scared enough as it is, and you know they taste better when they aren't so panicked. It's those damned endorphins or something... they're bitter, especially in the heart. And take off that mask before he comes to, you moron... dead men can't talk." Ooops... as has been pointed out to me, I missed the part about the thirty word limit... just ignore the last sentence, and I'll go have another coffee.

    Chapter 13.2

    All caught up again. I liked the numbers thing, Caz. War... yes... it's about time the High Council was notified. Cheryl has built a formidable force form the sounds of it. Great story, Caz! Cheers... Gary....

    Chapter 13.1

    Mates! I knew it! It appears Kitryn is ready to come clean... if these damn interruptions would stop.

    LOL... I knew Carl would enjoy this. Great job, Caz. Cheers... Gary....

    Chapter 12.1

    I oove watching this little dance between Kitryn and Simon. If Carl wasn't so stressed, he might be amused too.
  14. Happy Birthday, YOrite! :wizard:

    Book Club Suggestions - Fantasy Category

    Yeah, I understood that. I was just pointing out one series that did... since this is Gay Authors. I really like a lot of Anne Rice's stuff too, but everyone knows her. The Lives of the Mayfair Witches series is her very best, I think, and I've read virtually everything of hers.

    Book Club Suggestions - Fantasy Category

    Congrats on starting a blog, Leo! I think it's a great idea, and I will contribute when I can. I've read a lot of fantasy over the years, but I don't think I've read these. The only fantasy I've found that has main characters who are gay is in the Nightrunner Series by Lynn Flewelling. My absolute favorite series of books in the fantasy/supernatural genre is the Necroscope series by Brian Lumley. He takes the Vampire world to a whole new level. There are a lot of books in this series and I have them all. Without going to look, I think there are thirteen of them. Cheers... Gary....

    Story Review: The Web

    I loved the build up, @MrM! It lives, and you did a fantastic job of personifying this revolting creature of the dark corners... and its hunger. I HATE spiders. Great review, @Puppilull

    The Web

    Wow. Obscenely gripping, MrM. I am shuddering as I write this. I always knew It existed... and now you have provided sobering, terrifying proof! Well done, sir. Cheers... Gary....

    Sexual Assault and the aftermath

    I'm stunned. This is so sad, Victor, but you did nothing wrong... nothing to be ashamed of. I won't repeat what @Valkyrie said so very well. What he did doesn't count as your first time... not in my opinion... that involves giving yourself freely because you want to, so if you can, take solace in that at least. I'm glad you are turning a corner, but make sure you keep talking, and open up to the therapist. You are not alone, and you are loved, my dear young friend.

    Three Autumn Offerings

    Wonderful, all, Parker. I almost missed these before heading to bed. It just so happens I talked to a really good friend today... For Friendship made me think of him and our conversation, and smile.
  22. Happy Birthday, you handsome devil!

    Who is Your Favorite Gay Icon?

    I agree with all the names mentioned. I know it isn't what you're asking, but I want to give an huge honorable mention to a tiny straight woman who had the courage to go against the grain at the risk of her career, take on President Bush at the time (back in the very early nineties... I still remember the reaction when she said he couldn't even spell AIDS), work tirelessly for all AIDS sufferers, be relentless in her activism, and set up a foundation that has done great things in its support of AIDS research. Rock Hudson put a human face to the horrendous epidemic, but his friend, Elizabeth Taylor was the bulldog who wouldn't go away. Against all advice from the Hollywood establishment at the time, she committed her life to the cause. It all started when she listened to a handful of gay men and agreed to chair the first AIDS fundraiser. She never quit... not till her last breath, and she is my hero. R.I.P. wonderful lady.
