Michael Nava - Little Death  All Books by Michael Nava - Author of : Little Death
Paperback - 165 pages 3rd edition Vol 1 (April 1, 2001) 
Alyson Pubns; ISBN: 1555836941

"Gay Mystery Novels, Thrillers and Detective Fiction; Introduced by Alyson in 1986, the Henry Rios mystery series by Michael Nava will come to an end with the publication of Rag and Bone in 2001. Spanning 15 years and seven books, Nava's brilliant storytelling has earned him comparisons to Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, four Lambda Literary Awards, and a worldwide following. His crisp storytelling takes readers deep into a world beneath the veneer of glamour-where idealism is challenged by betrayal and justice can be defeated by corruption. Henry Rios has evolved from a San Francisco public defender to a Los Angeles defense lawyer; recovered from alcoholism; met, fallen in love with, and lost his lover Josh to AIDS; battled the cultural realities of being an openly gay Latino in California; and struggled in a very human way with the conflict between what is morally right and what is legally just. As The New York Times Book Review put it recently, Henry "doesn't win any friends for choosing dispassionate justice over revenge. But he does it anyway because he's one of the good guys-and Nava is one of the best." Alyson is proud to have been part of the Henry Rios series. We congratulate Michael Nava on his success and look forward to seeing what comes next."

Edward Phillips - Buried on Sunday  All Books by Edward Phillips - Author of : Buried on Sunday
Paperback (June 2000) 
Unknown; ISBN: 1896332129

"Gay Mystery Novels, Thrillers and Detective Fiction; Geoffry Chadwick, an acerbic lawyer who is frankly but never flamboyantly gay, makes his second appearance here, and long may he live to conduct his witty and mordant inquiries. Most unwillingly, Chadwick finds himself ensconced in the luxurious but isolated country house of an old friend – who turns out to be married to the one man Chadwick ever allowed himself to love with a passion. The arrival of some robbers on the run turns this potentially poignant situation into farce with murderous underchill. Phillips' prose has the cool sparkle of champagne, a deft blend of malice and understanding."

Paperback - 240 pages 1st stonew edition (January 1999) 
St. Martin's Press; ISBN: 0312198639

"Gay Mystery Novels, Thrillers and Detective Fiction; Whoever said that the pen was mightier than the sword might have had The Edith Wharton Murders in mind. In this campus mystery by the talented Lev Raphael, a conference on Edith Wharton becomes a killing ground when various literary factions carry their war of words a little too far--and someone ends up dead. At the heart of both the hostilities and the mystery is Nick Hoffman, a Wharton bibliographer saddled with the thankless task of moderating the conference. Once the murder has occurred, Nick must switch his focus from panel discussions to investigation, a course of action that provides plenty of opportunities for author Raphael to skewer the academic world he left behind."

 Lev Raphael - Dancing on Tisha B'Av All Books by Lev Raphael - Author of : Dancing on Tisha B'Av
Paperback Reprint edition (November 1991)
St. Martin's Press; ISBN: 0312063261

"Gay Mystery/Thriller; The 19 short stories in this first collection give the reader a glimpse of what it's like to be gay and Jewish, probing the problems encountered when trying to reconcile seemingly incompatible sensibilities. The author draws interesting parallels between the treatment of Jews in Europe before and during the World War II; several stories include concentration camp survivors parenting gay children, with each generation painfully aware of the discrimination and suffering experienced by the other. The title story begins with a sister admiring her brother's devotion to Orthodoxy, while refusing to confront his homosexuality; it concludes with his expulsion from his religious minyan, the torching of his dorm room by bigots, and her new understanding and sensitivity to another potential holocaust."

Keith Ridgway - The Long Falling  All Books by Keith Ridgway - Author of : The Long Falling
Paperback - 305 pages (May 1999) 
Houghton Mifflin Co; ISBN: 0395957826

"Gay Mystery Novels, Thrillers and Detective Fiction; Sin and salvation are the two themes of Keith Ridgway's wonderful first novel, The Long Falling. But as in life and great art, the definitions of these terms are neither simple nor clear. Grace Quinn is an abused wife whose husband's drinking has led to a car accident and the death of a young woman. As a result, they are shunned in their small rural Irish village. After her spouse's death in what most likely was a retaliatory hit-and-run accident, Grace moves to Dublin to be with Martin, her gay son who left home and his abusive father years before. In this new setting, Grace and Martin begin to form a new relationship--until secrets from the past threaten to destroy their lives. Ridgway knows how to tell a story, but the strength of the novel is in its insightful and compelling emotional details. Succinct, poetic, and emotionally shattering, The Long Falling is not simply a fine debut, but the beginning of an illustrious career."
