Bob Ashe & Mark Merlis

Mark Merlis (born March 9, 1950) is a novelist of unusual imaginative and linguistic power who examines contemporary gay concerns through the filter of historical parallels. His thought-filled, lyrical, yet wryly humorous narratives shift between the past and the present in order to illuminate the cause-and-effect relationship between homophobia and gay self-loathing, among other issues. Bob Ashe (born January 2, 1954) and Mark Merlis live in Philadelphia, where they were married on June 13, 2014.  “We met in Leon’s, a dive bar in Baltimore, in 1982. Each of us was cruising someone else; each of us struck out; it was last call. We saw each other and thought, ‘This will do for one night.’ We’ve been together ever since.”

Ultimately, his explorations of gay memory and the gay past offer a vision of how the cycles of violence can be broken and individuals join hands across the divides that separate them.

In American Studies (1994), Reeve, the elderly victim of a brutal beating by a hustler he brought home late one night, spends his time while recuperating in the hospital recollecting how Tom Slater, his college mentor, was driven to commit suicide when outed during the McCarthy era.

In An Arrow's Flight (1998), Merlis sets the events of the Trojan War in a late twentieth-century Mediterranean or Caribbean milieu, adapting the ancient myth of Philoctetes--who was abandoned under miserable circumstances by his fellow Greeks en route to Troy when a leg wound festered so badly that no one could bear its rank odor--to illuminate American attitudes towards the gay body in general, and towards AIDS-sufferers in particular.

My own novels are adaptations of fairy tales, so I adored An Arrow’s Flight by Mark Merlis a brilliant, tongue-in-cheek deconstruction of the story of mythic Achilles’ son Pyrrhus, who works as a naked go-go boy in ancient Greece. The inventive prose in An Arrow’s Flight is as irreverent as it is clever, and I’d wager that you’ll laugh as much as your loins will stir. I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Dazzling. --Nick Nolan
Mark Merlis‘s American Studies is the novel that demonstrated more than any other, when I found it at the age of 26, that the kind of gay sensibility with which I found myself in sympathy could, at its most sophisticated, synthesize wit (a pair of bottoms are described as ―two tunnels with no train‖), intellect (the literary critic F.O. Matthiessen is the model for a character, and the writing rings with intelligence throughout), eroticism (the interplay between the narrator and his young hospital roommate is quintessentially sexy), and emotional depth in a story that‘s riveting, memorable and fun. Merlis‘s novel, published in 1994 (his first and best so far), is for me the literary achievement par excellence. --Rick Whitaker, The Lost Library, Gay Fiction Rediscovered

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher

Evangeline Whipple & Rose Cleveland

Evangeline Marrs born January 15, 1862, at Saxonville (Boston), married a very rich industrialist Michael Hodge Simpson. She was left a rich widow in 1885 and met Rose Elizabeth Cleveland (June 13, 1846 - November 22, 1918), the sister of Grover Cleveland, then president of the Unites States with whom she began an intimate friendship. Rose Cleveland was 44 at the time and had been First Lady at the White House for 2 years. Their relationship cooled off when at the age of 33, in 1896 Evangeline married the 64 year old Episcopal Bishop of Minnesota, Henry Benjamin Whipple. The bishop was famous for his dedication to the Indians. It was the age of the conflicts between the Sioux and Sitting Bull and the American federalists, a part of history that we all have heard about. With him she established herself in the city of Faribault, seat of his bishopdom, and participated actively in her husband’s work. (P: Evangeline Simpson Whipple (©1))

She was left widowed again in 1901. Towards 1910 she visited Bagni di Lucca, taking residence at the Continental Hotel and later bought casa Bernardini at Bagno alla Villa, where she starter to live with her re-found friend Rose Cleveland and with the writer and illustrator Nelly Ericksen.

During the years of the first world war and especially after the intervention of the United States, she along with her two friends became an untiring organizer of aid work for the families of townspeople called to arms. Her charitable spirit however became manifest above all when after the military disaster of Caporetto in 1917, a penniless group of refugees were invited to Bagni di Lucca, she organized at her own expense a boarding school for the children of these people run by the Stimmatine nuns, which took in around one hundred children. In 1918 the Spanish flu, which cost six million deaths in Europe, claimed the lives of her two friends who both died in the same week and were buried in the English cemetery in Bagni di Lucca, where today it is still possible to visit their tombs. Evangeline Whipple wrote a lovely book on Bagni di Lucca entitled «A Famous Corner of Tuscany », published in London in 1928, in which she concentrated mostly on describing the famous people that passed their summers in the resort.


Evangeline Whipple & Rose Cleveland were buried together in the English Cemetery at Bagni di Lucca. Before Evangeline’s death in 1930, she directed her executors to bury her next to Rose. Nelly Erichsen, their friend, is buried next to them.
Rose Cleveland was the sister of Pres. Grover Cleveland and for 2 years his first lady. Later she became the principal of the Collegiate Institute of Lafayette, Indiana, a writer and lecturer, and the editor of the Chicago-based magazine Literary Life. At age 44, she started a passionate correspondence with a wealthy widow, Evangeline Simpson, with explicitly erotic correspondence. In 1910 the two women moved to Bagni di Lucca, Italy, to live together. They shared the house with the English illustrator and artist Nelly Erichsen. Rose died at home during the 1918 flu pandemic, within one week of Nelly.

Rose Elizabeth Cleveland (June 13, 1846 - November 22, 1918), was the First Lady of the United States from 1885 to 1886, during the first of her brother U.S. President Grover Cleveland's two administrations.

Rose Elizabeth Cleveland was born in Fayetteville, New York, on June 14, 1846. Known to her family as "Libby", Rose was the youngest of nine children born to Reverend Richard Falley Cleveland and Ann Neal Cleveland. In 1853 the family moved to Holland Patent, New York, where her father was settled as pastor of the Presbyterian church, and where he died that same year. Rose was 7 at the time of her father's death.

She stayed in Holland Patent to care for her widowed mother. Grover Cleveland, Rose's elder brother, was 16 years old at the time. Determined to support his family, Grover left school, and he headed off to New York City to work as a teacher at the State School for the Blind to help support his family. Rose was educated at Houghton seminary in Clinton, New York and she became a teacher at Houghton in order to support herself and her widowed mother.

Rose also taught at the Collegiate Institute in Lafayette, Indiana, and at a girls school in Muncy, Pennsylvania, where she taught in the late 1860s. At Muncy Seminary Rose was known for her strong personality and independence.

Rose gained a nickname throughout her circle of friends in Muncy, they called her "Johnny Cleveland" because she was usually found reading a book under an old tree at a nearby farm. Rose then prepared a course of historical lectures; one lecture in particular focused on Altruistic Faith, which she delivered before the students of Houghton seminary and at other schools.

Amateur sleuth Simon Kirby-Jones, who has appeared in short stories by Edgar-nominee and Agatha-winner James (Closer than the Bones), is sure to revolutionize the traditional British cozy and win the hearts of fans everywhere in his first full-length mystery. Simon is not only American and gay but also a vampire whose sun sensitivity and blood sucking urges are controlled by medication. (Garlic, though, can be deadly.) Thrilled to be living in England, he is eager to make the village of Snupperton Mumsley his home, where he plans to write more of his well-known historical works and lucrative pot-boilers. Seeking to become part of the community, Simon joins the fundraising committee of St. Ethelwold's, the local church. At the first meeting an argument erupts between Lady Prunella Blitherington, matriarch of the village's first family, and Abigail Winterton, the town busybody and postmistress, about the choice of the play to be presented as the fundraiser. When Abigail, disliked by almost everyone, is found murdered the next day, Simon determines to find her killer and in so doing discovers all the sordid secrets of Snupperton Mumsley. Quirky villagers, quaint cottages and an intriguing mystery told in the voice of a highly unusual protagonist with a rapier wit combine for a delightful reading experience. While Simon's vampire blood may run cold, he is warm and human. This light-hearted series debut makes one glad vampires can live forever. (Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.)

Euro Pride Con: G Benson

Starting from June 1, 2015, I will daily feature authors attending the three conventions I will join, Euro Pride in Munich (July), UK Meet in Bristol (September) and GRL in San Diego (October).

For the Euro Pride in Munich, July 11-12, 2015, today author is G Benson: Benson spent her childhood wrapped up in any book she could get her hands on and—as her mother likes to tell people at parties—even found a way to read in the shower. Moving on from writing bad poetry (thankfully) she started to write stories. About anything and everything. Tearing her from her laptop is a fairly difficult feat, though if you come bearing coffee you have a good chance.

When not writing or reading, she´s got her butt firmly on a train or plane to see the big wide world. Originally from Australia, she currently lives in Spain, speaking terrible Spanish and going on as many trips to new places as she can, budget permitting. This means she mostly walks around the city she lives in.

Left responsible for her young niece and nephew, Anna finds herself dumped and alone in Melbourne, a city she doesn’t even like. She tries to navigate the shock of looking after two children battling with their grief while managing her own.

Filled with self-doubt, Anna feels as if she’s making a mess of the entire thing, especially when she collides with a long-legged stranger. Anna barely has time to brush her teeth in the morning, let alone to date a woman—least of all one who has no idea about the two kids under her care.

Just when Anna finally starts to feel as if she’s getting some control of the situation, the biggest fight begins and Anna really has to step up once and for all.

UK Meet: Chris Quinton

Starting from June 1, 2015, I will daily feature authors attending the three conventions I will join, Euro Pride in Munich (July), UK Meet in Bristol (September) and GRL in San Diego (October).

For the UK Meet in Bristol, September 11-13, 2015, today author is Chris Quinton: Chris started creating stories not long after she mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of her parents and her English teachers. But she received plenty of encouragement. Her dad gave her an already old Everest typewriter when she was about ten, and it was probably the best gift she'd ever received – until the inventions of the home-computer and the worldwide web.

Chris's reading and writing interests range from historical, mystery, and paranormal, to science-fiction and fantasy, mostly in the male/male genre. She also writes male/female novels in the name of Chris Power. She refuses to be pigeon-holed and intends to uphold the long and honourable tradition of the Eccentric Brit to the best of her ability. In her spare time [hah!] she reads, embroiders, quilts and knits. In the past she has been a part-time and unpaid amateur archaeologist, and a 15th century re-enactor.

She currently lives in a small and ancient city in the south-west of the United Kingdom, sharing her usually chaotic home with an extended family, two large dogs, fancy mice, sundry goldfish and a young frilled dragon (Australian lizard) aka Trogdorina.
