The Farmer and the Cowman — by Josh Lanyon

The Farmer and the Cowman — by Josh Lanyon

But the farmer and the cowman should be friends. Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends. The cowman ropes a cow with ease, the farmer steals her butter and cheese, but that’s no reason why they can’t be friends. Oklahoma, Rodgers and Hammerstein We’ve all seen the movie — no, not Oklahoma. The movie where the artist — sometimes an actor, sometimes a playwright, sometimes a painter, sometimes…

The Blue Pencil Blues – Josh Lanyon

The Blue Pencil Blues – Josh Lanyon

But by far the worst thing that editors do is to unleash those anonymous vandals known as copy-editors. “Some Thoughts About Writing” by Thomas Sowell When Wave broached the subject of editing (or lack therein) in m/m and gay romantic fiction—a subject dear to both our hearts—I quickly realized it was going to turn into a topic too complex to handle in one column. I think it says a great…

Interview with Josh Lanyon

Interview with Josh Lanyon

On December 15 I’ll be interviewing Josh Lanyon, exactly one year since he was last interviewed on December 14, 2009.

Petit Morts – The Little Series that Could

Petit Morts – The Little Series that Could

One of the most delightful series around is a compilation of short stories called Petit Morts, which have now totalled ten books so far, and I believe the intent is for fifteen of these gems to be published by the time the series ends. Translated from the French, La petite morte,  “the little death”, is a metaphor for orgasm or the spiritual release that comes with orgasm. I wonder if that was what Jordan Castillo Price had in…
