Worth dying for by Trin Denise was an awesome book! Great story line and great love story. Trin just released her second lesbian novel today, She Left Me Breathless. The description sounds interesting....just bought it!

Tom(C) says:, a website that has book descriptions, member ratings and reviews, and discussion groups has a M/M Romance Group with a "bookshelf" (listings) of thousands of gay male romances with sub-genres on a wide variety of themes. (M/M stands for Male/Male)

Adding to Tom: A further source of assembled m/m romance sites is the extensive list of links placed towards the tail of the blog at

Hi - a book whose principle character is sexually confused, about a third of which is based on the Madrid gay scene and the principle romance is between a 20 year old male student and a almost 30 something more mature guy is: Psychotic Memoirs. (Coming out the journey within). The book deals expertly with paranoia and alienation due to sexual confusion and lets the 20 year old realise there is life outside within and beyond the closet.

Psychotic Memoirs. (Coming out the journey within)

Champion of the Moon Glories (Moon Glories Saga) I have recently finished this book. If you like romance and fantasy, I feel you would like this one. The descriptions and characters are wonderful. Has special twists and magic. Loved it!

ANTINOOS AND HADRIAN In answer to your inquiry about gay and lesbian novles, here is my contribution. I could promote/advertise my own books recently uploaded to Amazon: ANTINOOS AND HADRIAN, a historical novel dealing with the relationship between these two. OVER THE RAINBOW a collection of short stories which take place in several European cities where the traveler encounters a boy who changes his life unexpedtedly. HOPE THIS HELPS A LITTLE. R. G. Berube Aachen, Germany

There are currently three recent novels at Amazon based on the relationship of Hadrian and his 'Favorite' Antinous. They are Mr. Berube's ANTINOOS AND HADRIAN, Melanie McDonald's Eromenos, and my own THE HADRIAN ENIGMA A Forbidden History.

Tales about this pair of ancient world lovers appears to be a growth industry.

Excellent! I want it. Your subtitle "A Forbidden History" makes it irresistable. This pair are indeed notorious, but no more so than Alexander and Hephaestion. Maybe they just make better copy because of the manner of Antinous' death. Or because a loving homosexual relationship between Roman men was more remarkable and less acceptable than the same kind of relationship between Greek men half a millenium earlier?

The Hadrian Enigma looks good. I've always loved their story. Hadrian and Antinous are a fixture in Teleny as well. They are glorified as an example of great tragic gay love by the Victorian decadents. They make a brief appearance in my own graphic novel adaptation of Teleny "Teleny and Camille"Teleny and Camille

Perhaps part of the allure of Hadrian and Antinous is the fact that they are history's first actual recorded public couple? This has a GLBT political dimension. Alexander and Hephaestion are probables (if quite likely), but not entirely established. Despite the Roman era's relative tolerance among its elites of m/m relationships - for example all but two of the first fifteen emperors possessed reputations for ambiguous sexuality, as well as noted studs like Cleopatra's pal Mark Antony surprisingly - only Hadrian and Antinous seem conclusive. These matters are very well recorded in (UK historian Professor) James Davidson's 2007 work The Greeks and Greek Love: A Bold New Exploration of the Ancient World.

Has history forgotten Alexander and Hephastion? Achilles and Patroclus? Hercules and Iolaus? Pelopidas and Phillip of Macedon? Harmodius and Aristogeiton?

A very beautiful book by a young italian writer! I really suggest to read it!

"I cover my lips with a thin layer of blue colour. I look at myself again.
A distorted figure on a white background.I am the one who doesn't need it, the one who lives alone out of the House. I am the one who doesn't have a name because it doesn't matter, the one who doesn't have a colour at the right place."
Outskirts of Rome. An Okiya house in which seven boys live together as geisha; leaded by a transsexual Mama-san. They tell with their own words their love and how they sell away themselves.

Geisha boys
