The Satin Prince:

The gripping story of a strong man trapped by his own weaknesses.

The Satin Prince, Lee Weeks.

Probably a work of transvestite fiction. Whether gay male or feminization/sissyfication is impossible to say from the cover.

Shocking. Brutally Frank

Twilight Men

| No Comments

Perhaps the now abandoned association of gay male sexuality with the word twilight began with AndrĂ© Tellier’s novel, Twilight Men. For such an uncommon work of gay prose fiction by a forgotten author the book saw a few editions.

Most recently, academic reprint house Greenberg.
