FEATURED RELEASES
Architect Mèco, ejected from his protected but autocratic Dome, survives with the help of three Novigi, a strange people who can awaken the land and with it Mèco’s long-dormant sexuality. When their fragile home is threatened by brutal gangs, the four discover they must become warriors to protect their new way of living and loving.

Jamie hoped his gig as playwright-in-residence at an urban theater would be the start of a new, proud life out of the closet. His new lover Spider gives him the courage to come out, but Spider has his own magical secrets that threaten their life together.
  

“Is there a place for me in this world? Someplace I can call home?” In this full-length anthology featuring contemporary, historical, fantasy, and steampunk stories, some of Torquere's favorite authors bring us stories of gay men seeking, finding, rediscovering, or struggling to find that one place in the world where they truly belong.
Reader advisory: Some of my works contain frank portrayals of same-sex eroticism, and all of them celebrate the full spectrum of adult gender and sexual identity and expression.
 
BIOGRAPHY
Before dawn and after dark, Lee Benoit is a writer of queer fiction, some contemporary, some speculative, some historical. During the daylight hours she is a professor of sociology & anthropology. In the old days, Lee traveled the world doing field research. Nowadays, she lives in the middle of a New England hayfield where being a two-spirit single parent provides more than enough excitement. Lee also paints watercolors, bakes wild-yeast sourdough bread, and shares her bed with a pair of cats and an abjectly adoring hound-retriever mutt. Whenever she gets itchy feet and misses the world of research and advocacy, Lee invents a new world in her head and takes notes on what happens there.
