Product description


"A funny, lively, thoughtful and sexy read." -- Sydney Star Observer

"A symphony of sexual debate in a minor key whose insights deserve to become proverbs" -- Independent on Sunday 'Books of the Year'

"Brilliant. Wry, darkly comic, a brutally honest correspondence, constantly engaging and entertaining, with a perverse ingenuity that manages to plumb the depths of joy and soar to the heights of despair." -- Jake Arnott

"Dear Mark and Steven,
I really enjoyed your book.... I look forward to hearing from you again.
Affectionately yours,
Nathan" -- Lambda Book Report

"Marvellous, witty, dry…" -- The Big Issue

"One of the most congenial, winning, intelligent and original 'gay' publications for many years." -- The Independent

"Profound and hilarious - A wealth of insight, wit and warmth" -- The Independent on Sunday

"Simpson and Zeeland resurrect the lost art of letter writing with this engaging collection of correspondence....Compelling, moving and frequently hilarious. 5/5 Stars" -- Metro

"So appealing... highbrow gay porn, a thoughtful critique of masculinity and the urban gay lifestyle, scattered with witty epigrams...pure entertainment. " -- The Guardian

"The best gay book of the year" -- Time Out NY


A chance letter speaks off a transatlantic literary romance between two writers, one British, one American, in which they share their unhealthy and unfashionable passions for military men, cruising and cats. Mark Simpson reveals the slow collapse of his hopeless relationship with a serving Royal Marine and the outrages response to 'Anti-Gay'; while Steven Zeeland chronicles his doomed attachment to his psycho-Marine boyfriend and his love-triangle rivalry with Andrew Cunanan, gay serial-killer and Gianni Versace's assassin. Funny, insightful and scandalous, "The Queen Is Dead" will outrage some and make others laugh out loud.
