      This year we simplified things and announced at the Forums and a footnote on the story site for submissions for Christmas or Holiday stories. We really had no idea how many stories we would receive, since we didn't make as big a deal with it as we had in the past. Folks were watching, as we received six entries for this years collection.

    • After Dark by Narias1989 is in the genre of weird fantasy. Now I'm not at all sure how many readers are into worlds of the weird and wonderful, the sort of writing that you either love or hate. This is not a long book, a novella, 12000 words, five chapters, but it may just be the first of a series. Now okay, it's not perfect, it's by a relatively new author, but if it's your thing weird and wonderfully different writing, then take a look. Here is a copy of the review I wrote, it will give you a flavour of what's in the book: Our hero is Shinozaki-Sanderson aka Samurai Shinozaki, who the kid from middle America knew back sometime when he went by a different name. Now there is a whole sexy attraction that's going on here, because daddy knew the kid when he was eight years old and had a thing about collecting bugs. Now Bennet, the kid, carries a big rifle and wears a t-shirt proclaiming suicidal tendencies. Ordinary things can take on a different perspective in the words of our author, and whilst all the action takes place around Koi Hill and the pond, you have to be prepared for the odd bug or two and spidery costumes. The costumes fit skin tight, sexy, but that’s by the by, they need to impress the Empress and catch some crickets! You must know that Anything can happen. This is a tale about saving the world in one long night, and it’s about writing, about being an author – just like D H Lawrence. It's about the moon, and the Trespassers, and lots of other things, and the words will literally fly off the page (or screen – let’s be modern) and – yes, I know you've guessed, they will save the world. At least this time round – maybe! A written work that will draw you into this magick world, all you need do is suspend belief, go with the flow, and hope that Shinozaki and Bennet will triumph. If you really want to understand it on all it’s levels, because there's a lot going on, you might just have to read it over again. I recommend you take some time out to read this trip through another world which is strangely grounded in the mundane reality of a deadline. Remember all good books about love and saving the universe deserve your consideration. Nothing ventured!... Here is the link to the story: https://www.gayauthors.org/story/narias1989/after-dark/1 If you read it, let the author know by liking, commenting, and come back here and tell us what you thought of it. I would be interested to know that I am not alone in liking weird fantasy novels!
    • Awsome chapter. Well Jordan is now with his uncel Ted. When he got an board he met Pierre a handsome french guy. Who is he, what is he doing there? Looks like the froggey is waiting to play so leep frog with Jordan. We have seen the boys are already playing with their partners. How will or if Jordan will be able to help the boys? We will just have to see want we.
    • I am not too sure how Jordan, who is a really nice guy but not the most dynamic character, somehow got deeply involved with these boys. He is, as was shown here in this latest chapter, a little naive and unrealistic in his outlook. But then he is young, lacking in experience, so it is par for the course. However, being less conscious of danger allows you to take risks, but it doesn't protect you from the consequences. You will see quite soon some of those consequences, but will have to wait some time to see how things eventually turn out as a result of decisions made now. Read on and enjoy, and thank you for commenting.  
    • Hello Gary,  So glad to read about Bishop & Awen finally taking the tumble in bed , Now I wonder if bert's going to start to give Awen some pointers now ...lol, .     Cheers, .           Johnny C 
    • What a interesting and fully delightful chapter. Well it went better than I thought it would. The only down side was Jeremy. Well we could have foreseen that one day an ex-john of Paul's would pop up. It being Doug's step-dad was a blessing in getting him out of Gwen's life. It was good that they were no real damage done. Can not wait to see what happens next.
