    I'm not looking for sex stories, but does anyone know any good gay fiction, or literature in general.

    Oh... I thought this was going to be about age, weight, and the vintage of photos on profiles.

    But seriously, there's a whole section in any major bookstore. For that matter, there are whole bookstores...

    a lot of bookstores have gay themed fiction shelved with the fiction

    good is in the eye of the beholder, but I've enjoyed books by Rob Byrnes, Michael Thomas Ford, Timothy James Beck and Ben Tyler.

    If you like fantasy, Tanya Huff is pretty good

    Malcolm Boyd, he isn't for everybody but he's a very good author from the civil rights movement.

    Hopefully, I'll be on shelves, since that is what I write. If you ask me nicely in a private message, I might even share.

    Some good authors, if you like fantasy, are Tanya Huff as mentioned, and Mercedes Lackey's The Last Herald Mage Trilogy. Trudi Canavan has some gay characters in her Black Magician's Trilogy.

    I'm not familiar with other gay fiction icon_sad.gif

    Hero by Perry Moore.. read this one, you'll love it.
    It's about a young guy who must not only hide that he's a superhero but his sexuality, as well. The storyline is well written. I enjoyed it.

    Btw the author of this book recently died on Feb. 17th of this year. It's sad because he was working so hard to make this book into a television series. His son however is currently looking to make a deal with Showtime to adapt it into a movie. Hopefully it happens because this is one of my all time favorite books.

    By Chris Corkum - P.D. Publishing, Incorporated (2010) - Paperback - 308 pages - ISBN 1933720719

    It's not easy growing up - as a gay suburban teenager in the 80's. It's even harder when the crush you have on a major British pop star becomes reality. Steven Carlisle and Hayden Whitfield come from two completely different worlds. Steven is a teenager growing up in Orange County, grappling with his sexuality and identity in high school. Hayden is a major English pop star, trying to find acceptance and validation through his music. From the moment they meet, when Steven wins backstage passes to one of Hayden's concerts, an undeniable connection is created between the two; a connection that lasts eighteen years, evolving from letters into a wonderful, often tumultuous relationship. XOXO Hayden is the story of a suburban teenager's journey from adolescence into adulthood and the rise and fall of a mighty pop star and the indelible impression he leaves behind.


    such a good read. check out all the amazon reviews. knew the author. was very skeptical about it. but like all the reviewers mentioned, it really was hard to put down.

    As a small boy, Louis witnesses an unspeakable crime that takes the life of a member of his small, southern community. He grows up and moves on, but he is forever changed by the cruel and brutal nature of the act. It lights a fire deep within him that burns white and cold, a quiet flame just waiting to ignite. Now, years later, the sins of his life are reaching into his present, bringing with them the buried secrets and half-forgotten acts of his past.

    Someone is hunting him, targeting his home, his businesses, and his partner, Angel. The instrument of revenge is Bliss, a killer of killers, the most feared of assassins. Bliss is a Reaper, a lethal tool to be applied toward the ultimate end, but he is also a man with a personal vendetta.

    Hardened by their pasts, Louis and Angel decide to strike back. While they form a camaraderie that brings them solace, it offers them no shelter from the fate that stalks them. When they mysteriously disappear, their friends are forced to band together to find them. They are led by private detective Charlie Parker, a killer himself, a Reaper in waiting.


    Excellent book. I wish they would make it into a movie.

    I liked Andrew Grey's "Love Means N Shame."
