Product Description

Product Description

Contemporary Gay Romances is the third collection of short fiction by legendary novelist and memoirist, Felice Picano (The Lure, Like People in History, Ambidextrous). It is also his most diverse in terms of the times, places, themes, characters and situations he writes about. Filled with the unexpected, the true, and the amazing, Contemporary Gay Romances moves with ease from gas-lit, upper class London, to a future, climate-altered Bay Area; from semi-rural Florida to Southern California beaches, to an extrasolar planet where people have surprising existences. His characters range from ordinary American suburban housewives to extraordinary children, from grieving young geologists and memory-haunted middle aged men, to British Midlands soccer stars and 22nd Century war heroes. Picano subtitled this collection of stylish, unique, and moving works “Tragic, Comic, Mystic & Horrific,” and they are all that and more. The ten tales include prize winners as well as stories published here for the first time, and are as different from any standard “romances” as you can get, but they will linger in the mind and memory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yarns Well Spun 26 Jan. 2012
By Tom Libby 100 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Spinning a well-told yarn seems as easy for Felice Picano as breathing is for the rest of us. In this latest collection of short stories, he demonstrates once again that he is a master of the genre. Did the sudden and brutal murder of an ancestor really trigger some creative spark that drives him to write ever more intriguing tales? He thinks that may be a key to the "voices" he hears, making it easier for him to write. Whether that is the case or not, we are the lucky winners, because the stories here display both the amazing breadth of his knowledge and its depth, as well. There is always a bit of mystery in each of them, and that's one of the qualities that has made his work so popular. They range from a romance from the 19th century to a couple of the best science fiction I've read, and everywhere in between. I had picked a few favorites, but that was before I got to the last adventure. It was both absorbing and chilling, and then so suddenly, extremely erotic that my emotions flew in all directions at once. Whether you are familiar with Picano's previous writing or not, this is a great read. What a pleasure to recommend this book!
