Fee Males

| No Comments

You can take the title Fee Males two ways:

  • That queer males are like females - the old stereotype that we are all effeminate.
  • Fee as in money. The novel is about rent boys, male hustlers.

Poor fellow, he looks so miserable, doesn’t he?

Does anyone really think this cover was designed to entice heterosexual men? Physical culture was one of the many code words back in the bad old days.

Song of Alexander

Classical studies continue into Mary Renault territory with a man of the ancient world more celebrated than Emperor Elagabalus. Alexander the Great remembered by gay men not because he was a gifted military leader but for his male lovers.

He was the warrior queen of the ancient world.

Child of the Sun

Department of Classical Studies

Child of the Sun appears to be the story of gay Roman Emperor Elagabalus (sometimes, Heliogabalus). Most famous for trying to make sun worship the main cult of the Roman Empire. Supposedly he gave his boyfriends important political offices. He was an unpopular ruler and the accounts left of him were written by his enemies.

The makeup lets the reader know that the Emperor is a pervert, probably a homo.

The authors wrote quite a bit of trashy historical fiction including Plantation Romances (lots of whips and interracial sex).

Do You Worship Gay Gods?

This particular pantheon requires nothing more than strong thighs, a deep chest and shapely biceps. These gods make queer men mad with lust.
