The winner of the popularity contest for Contemporary Gay Fiction (and the book goes directly to Phase 3) is:

Clippings by A.J. Mirag
ISBN: 978-0-557-01301-2
Publisher: Lulu Press

Unfairly arrested and charged with the murder of a police officer, Daniel has been jailed indefinitely until trial. A Brazilian prison is a terrible place to lose his innocence. Daniel would have lost more than that — perhaps even his life — if not for Mephisto, his cellmate. "Clippings" is the story of the challenges faced by a middle class young man in prison, and his relationship with a dark, mysterious man who seems eager to protect him, but who might have his own inscrutable plans... Cover art and illustrations by kore kan.

What's all this rubbish about?!!...gay books??nope siree!;don't get mistaken;it's more like self promotion for this new "girlie business not daring to speak its name" ,trying to make money on men who like men loving men's stories(no girlie business of yours...unless you stop shaving and get the real gear) ;a bit like these raunchy so called lesbian porn movies made by het men for het men,only this time it's women fantasizing about us but obviously a bit off the reality of true gaylit:for gays ,made by gays-thanks girls but ;no offence;not everywoman can be a girl with balls,yourcenar or renault-like!!...

nice that you decided to comment on a finalist post, when this contest was won, among the other, by Kyell Gold, that is gay and a man, but also by Tamara Allen, who is a woman but published by a gay man publisher... then if you see the other awards, Best Bisexual to Mykola Dementiuk, Best Young Adult to Jere' M. Fishback, Best Non Fiction Book to Charles Jensen... can you please explain me where the rubbish is among them? If there are some women authors who won other categories, it was a fair contest, and probably they wrote good books. Please take your nasty comments somewhere else, and if not, next time sign them at least, otherwise I will not bother with them, and simply delete it.
