    You might give Jonathan Tropper a try. Very smart, funny, but comes from a dark place, usually. I read "How to talk to a Widower", which is a man who describes his life after his wife dies (the dark) and he struggles to reconnect, especially with his weird-ish family (the smart and funny), and "Everything Changes", again death is a theme (the dark), but the protagonist moves through it with humor, anger and the will to do the right thing.

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    I just finished Ask the Passengers, by A.S. King. I liked it. It's about a high school girl named Astrid, who lives with her mother, brother, and sister in a little country town named Unity Valley, not terribly far from where I live now. The title comes from Astrid's habit of going to the backyard picnic table at night, looking up at the passing airplanes, and sending her love to the passengers.

    It's about first love, and small town gossip, and family. Oh, and when you find you're falling for another girl.

    I know, it's not especially age-appropriate for me...but I confessed to the young adult librarian at Radnor Memorial Library that I think an awful lot of today's best new fiction is found in the young adult section. (I was pleased she liked what I did...and she's met David Levithan. I'm jealous.)

    If you like a mystery with lots of surprises, twists, and turns, I recommend They Did It with Love by Kate Morgenroth. I gasped several times at the revelations along this book's storyline. The gay content, unfortunately, is about 0%. But if you consider it as The Real Housewives of Greenwich, Connecticut...which it reads as breezily as...queer enough.

    Re: BOOKS: What are you reading?

    I have a NSFW "Thursday Thirteen" thread in which we usually post 13 pics with a common theme. Some posts have lists instead, such as my latest book acquisitions. Below is my most recent post.


    Having one of my stories accepted for Best Gay Erotica 2014 prompted me to learn about the editor, Larry Duplechan. I love his books and want to share some of what I found. He also maintains a blog of his sexy drawings. Get the links to his books and blog here.

    From an article on his life and works:

    Duplechan is an autobiographical writer. His novels do not recount events that actually happened to him, but they closely reflect his life and personality, especially through the voice of his most famous character, the protagonist of four of his novels, Johnnie Ray Rousseau
    ...beneath Duplechan's breezy style lurks a great deal of pain and suffering. Indeed, the humor with which his work is infused is often a coping mechanism. While Duplechan may be a comic writer—he has described his books as "romantic comedies"-- he knows that in life comedy and tragedy coexist and intensify each other.
    For Johnnie Ray, as for Duplechan himself, his gay identity is more defining than his racial identity. Yet it is not true, as some reviewers alleged, that Blackbird is insensitive to racial issues, including the discrimination Johnnie Ray faces as one of a handful of black students in his high school. Indeed, the novel subtly but unmistakably indicates the pervasiveness of racism in the conformist ethos that shapes small-town attitudes.
    Charles I. Nero has described Johnnie Ray's forthrightly expressed preference for white sexual partners as a challenge to the idea that "a black person's attraction to a white" is pathological; he also contends that Johnnie Ray's declaration of such a sexual preference is "a major moment of signifying in African American literature: the sexual objectification of white men by a black man."

    I’ll add that there is a lot of hot erotic content – both brief references and some detailed sex scenes.

    I’ve read the first two and the last book so far. The other two are waiting for me at the post office.

    1. Eight Days a Week – Johnnie Ray as a young adult
    2. Blackbird – prequel to above, a younger Johnnie Ray
    3. Tangled Up in Blue – Not part of the series; AIDS theme
    4. Captain Swing – Johnnie Ray in his thirties
    5. Got 'Til It's Gone- Johnnie Ray in his forties

    I’ve also been reading mysteries lately, and I’d rather read about gay characters. My searches took me to Greg Herren – I’m starting my second of his sexy adventures set in New Orleans. He also writes a mystery series. I had previously enjoyed his erotica. Another popular author is Neil S. Plakcy, creator of the Mahu Investigations series about a Hawaiian detective. Plakcy writes extensively about Hawaii, surfers, beaches, sailors, and other themes. I haven’t read his books yet.

    From Greg Herren about his books:
    I’m primarily known as a mystery writer. I write two series, the Chanse MacLeod mysteries and the Scotty Bradley adventures. Both private eyes are gay men who live in New Orleans, but there the similarities end. Chanse and Scotty are about as different as two people can be! Chanse is darker and more cynical, and so are the books. Scotty, on the other hand, is a happy-go-lucky person who can always see the humor in everything,

    6. Bourbon Street Blues (Scotty Bradley series) by Greg Herren
    7. Jackson Square Jazz (Scotty Bradley)
    8. Vieux Carré Voodoo (Scotty Bradley) (obtained from library, but I'm counting it with "my" books)
    9. Mahu: A Hawai'ian Mystery (A Kimo Kanapa Mystery) by Neil S. Plakcy

    And, of course there’s some erotica in my latest reading pile. I liked what I read by David May and picked up a couple of his books. I'm not recommending those in general, but they'll appeal to people with certain specific tastes.

    10. Butch Bottom & the Absent Daddy and Ten Other Leather Love Stories
    11. Madrugada: A Cycle of Erotic Fictions (Boner Books)


    Other:

    12. The Lost Library : Gay Fiction Rediscovered -- found when searching for Duplechan; he’s one of many authors included.

    13. The Violet Quill Reader: The Emergence of Gay Writing After Stonewall.
    The editor, David Bergman, also edited the Men on Men fiction anthologies. The Violet Quill was a group of seven New York writers -- Edmund White, Andrew Holleran, Christopher Cox, Michael Grumley, Robert Ferro, Felice Picano and George Whitmore -- who regularly met in the early 1980s to discuss and read their work.

    I adore that series. You might also want to read his other books, there's 'easter eggs', for lack of a better term, throughout all his books. And some of the characters cross worlds. Books that are chock full of that are, lessee, The Stand, It, The Talisman, Black House, Needful Things. Damn near all his novels mention something, but those are, to my mind, full of eggs. I'm currently rereading Drawing of the Three. You'll have a much harder time reading fast when it gets to Wizard and Glass, I assure you

    Yesterday, I finished The Road Home by Michael Thomas Ford. A bit over the top in places, but at least it's a book largely populated with gay men whom I can relate to as being realistic characters, and not all about the shallow pursuit of "hotties" as it were.

    I finished Twisted by Jonathan Kellerman. He writes reliably good suspense novels set in Los Angeles (usually...sometimes he'll switch things up). Here's a spoiler (if you've read the book, you'll laugh!)...

    I love, love, love the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice and so I'm reading Blackwood Farm. I love how Anne Rice is like a bisexual man in a woman's body lol. I' saw Eye of the World was the first of a popular book series written by a man from Charleston, SC which is about 1 hour from me so I'm reading that now too.

    Unfortunately grad school hasn't left me with much time to read anything besides research papers and textbooks. However I won a $25 dollar gift card to the campus bookstore last week. I decided to spend it on this:

    http://www.amazon.com/Wonderbook-Ill...der_1419704427

    From what I have managed to read of The Wonderbook it is a fantastic and humorous how-to Bible for aspiring fiction writers with essays from some of the biggest names in fiction. I am a very visual learner and the illustrations and diagrams used in the book are fantastic and entertaining.

    I read The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud, I love the sarcastic wit of the main character a Djinn called Bartimaeus, it's told in first-person from his viewpoint for most of the book.

    That Wonderbook sounds like exactly the sort of thing I should read cubbybear01, it'll help with my own writing.

    Fans of the cooking program Two Fat Ladies would appreciate the memoir of one of its stars, Clarissa Dickson Wright: Spilling the Beans. Her story of overcoming a dysfunctional youth, followed by alcoholism so severe I wondered how she made it out alive! She's honest, not at all self-pitying, and has a terrific dry sense of humor.

    Tonight I am reviewing the 5 Volume The Expositor's Greek Testament, Edited by the Reverend W. Robertson Nicoll, M.A., LL.D, published by WM. B. Erdman's Publishing Company of Grand Rapids Michigan.

    Yesterday I read The Life of Saint Issa, written by Virchand R. Gandhi published by Kessinger Publishing of Whitefish, Montana, as extracted from The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ also written by Virchand R. Gandhi.

    I like to read books that are deep, meaningful, and which possess a significant cultural learning experience...

    Started this one today at lunch: Lawfully Wedded Husband: How My Gay Marriage Will Save the American Family by Joel Derfner. It's a fucking riot, especially the story of his grandmother's nine husbands!

    I agree, and I like it.

    Definitely 'yay'. This trilogy is the greatest piece of science fiction literature I've ever read. Even greater than my previous favourite, the Revelation Space series by Alastair Reynolds.
    ....
    That said, the series is incredibly deep and extensive, deciding to read them all is quite the commitment, but it is a commitment well worth making.
    By "deep", do you mean there is some serious philosophy to be pondered? I like sci fi (and fantasy) that tackles philosophical issues or makes a philosophical point to consider -- as an example, the entire Belgariad can be viewed as a meditation on the concept of the nature of creation.

    I finished The Road, by Cormac McCarthy. It's a tale of survival in a dreary cold post-apocalyptic world. And I was surprised that it made me cry...at the end.

    Esquire magazine included it on their additional "Books Every Man Should Read" list in their recent 80th anniversary issue.
