Tante Li meint:
Dear sista A,

thank you very much for your bouncing, sleeve tugging and showing the long desired book!
*hugyou*

17,50 € - can I wait for the paperback? That will stress my nerves.
Maybe if you are so strong to wait for it so I can suck some of your strength for my impatience.

Luckily, there are enough other books I want to read, so I hope to be able to endure the waiting time.

All my best wishes to you, honey!
Kind regards
Li

sista A meint:
Tante Li, Tante Li *sista A bounces up and down* *sista A tugs impatiently at Tante Li's sleeve*, look! Hastur Lord: A Novel of Darkover :-)

I haven't read it yet and I will try to wait for the paperback but the reviews at .com suggest that it's pretty good. Yay! (Sorry, sometimes I'm such a fangirl ;-))

Tante Li meint:
Hi!
Yes, I know this trilogy and read all three of it. What I missed most in it was a temporare positive view of this gay relationship. Too few real action between the lovers - too much longing und missing feelings.

And too much horses! I didn't like this telepathic link between horses and wizards.
Thank you for mentioning it, anyway ;-)
Bye!
Li

what about mercedes lackey's last herald-mage-trilogy Magic's Pawn, Magic's Promise and Magic's Price? inmo it is the best trilogy she ever wrote in her valdemar world which might be due to the fact that it is a very early trilogy and it is obvious she was still bursting with ideas. anyway it is about a gay mage-bard-couple and no soap opera (like mzb lackey never was afraid to call rape and other gruesome violence just that and she has a really eloquent style which can provoke even nightmares.. even though nowadays she seems to prefer more humourous stories)
enjoy

Pseudonym meint:
Interesting question/discusssion. Maybe I can contribute some suggestions that haven't been made yet, although I have not read every message.

Going through my library, I come upon (fiction)

Philip Ridley, In the eyes of Mr Fury (turned into a film, Reflecting skin)
James Hanley, Boy
Gore Vidal, The city and the pillar
Paul Bowles, Up above the world (not entirely sure about this one, but definitely a great writer)

and (nonfiction)

Samuel R Delany, The motion of light in water (autobiography of a science fiction writer; if I remember it right, also in his novels appear emotional as well as sexual relationships between men, try Dhalgren)
B R Burg, Sodomy and the pirate tradition (about pirate societies and life on board buccaneer ships in the 17th century Caribbean - without women; scientific text)

und ein deutsches Buch

Michael Roes, Leeres Viertel - Rub' Al-Khali.

Wenn ich nochmal drüber nachdenke, Dhalgren, The city and the pillar und Leeres Viertel entsprechen wahrscheinlich am ehesten dem, was Du suchst.

Viel Spaß beim Lesen!

Tante Li meint:
Winnetou und "Sharlie" hatten wirklich eine ganz besondere Beziehung. Einige dieser Karl May-Bände habe ich speziell aus diesem Grund gelesen, aber die Haupthandlung habe ich mir dann doch lieber zusammengefasst in den alten, deutschen Verfilmungen angeschaut. Pierre Brice und Lex Barker sahen schon unverschämt gut miteinander aus *schmacht*

Tante Li meint:
"My Beautiful Laundrette" was a movie I really loved. A pity that the skript by Hanif Kureishi isn't in form of a short story?
:-)

P.S.:
I read it in it's script form now (with Reclam-Explanations) and want to see the movie immediately!

Nicht so wirklich mein Feld (Narziss und Goldmund fand ich auch persönlich Hesses holzschnittartigstes Werk), doch wie wär's mit Good Old Shatterhand und Winnetou von Karl May (oder Hägar und Sven Glückspilz) - das wäre ziemlich doughty? :-)

Kat meint:
how about the books of:
- Michael Cunningham (The Hours, A Home at the end of the world - both also made into great movies)
- Hanif Kureishi (Midnight all day, Intimacy, Buddha of Suburbia, ... - also check out his skript made to movie My beautiful laundrette!)

Emma290497 meint:
can't really offer any books, but the web offers a large variety of fanfictions in that category.

one forum which hosts a large set of really excellent slash writers (het writers as well) is "of elves and men". you can google it. - a lot is, as the name indicates Lord of the Rings related, but there are various cross over fandoms as well, same as the real person fictions. worth a try, there's really good stuff.

Dear L. Yee,
the movie 'Before Night Falls' about the cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas is also impressive - especially with the little supporting roles of Johnny Depp! :-)

You are so right, so right... I love her just as much as you do. I loved Hephaestus and Forgive those who tresspass the most. Disturbing, dark and so well written that they could be published if they weren´t fanfics

There is a book called "Profane Freundschaft" written by Harold Brodkey. It´s a classic novel which isn´t always easy to understand but it´s great nevertheless. The characters are very well developed and the undertunes are what makes the whole story.

'Before Night Falls' by Reinaldo Arenas, a Cuban writer. 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' by John Berendt.
Hope you like them as much as I did.

Tante Li meint:
Hi sista A,

yes, you are right. These happy glory days of longing and hunting are almost over ;-)
A few seconds before I managed to order the book "Rediscovery" (Darkover) by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Mercedes Lackey for about 3,- + 3,- € at the marketplace. I hope I will not be too disappointed when I see it delivered in an unworthy condition.

Thank you for your link and the suggestion of using amazon.co.uk - I have no experience in this ordering.
Maybe the time is ripe to enlarge my hunting area ;-)

Love
Li

sista A meint:
Hi Tante Li,

*arrgh* when I wrote the review there was a copy available at the marketplace for about 5 Euro but somebody snatched it away from under your nose. So sorry! Yes, usually it is very expensive and I had my eye on it for a very long time before I could get it for a decent price. You might want to watch for it on amazon.co.uk. The shipping costs for a marketplace item from the UK are currently about 4,50 Euro for books, and even less for dvds so if you have a credit card you might get a bargain there at some point. Also helpful (and not only for this book) is this site:

http://www.eurobuch.com/

It could be a bit better designed and the shipping costs are not always displayed (and also sometimes wrong) but at least it tells you where else to look.

And isn't it sometimes nice to get this feeling back we used to have in the olden times? Remember, when not everything was available by clicking a few buttons and one could spend hours in second hand bookstores looking for that one obscure out-of-print science fiction book or suddenly finding out that a favourite author had written a new book? Happy days - and now I hear you saying: Yes, they were, and thank God they are over. And you are right. But please don't cry and - happy hunting ;-).

Hi sista A!
How nice to hear from you again :-)
This book sounds really interesting. I will certainly have a intensiv look at it right away ... :-)))

:-( What a pity! It is definitely too expensive for me *cry*

sista A meint:
Hi Tante Li,

I found another really good one The Archer's Heart. Like most of the books I really enjoy, it's not only a love story but a fully grown novel (Uh-oh. I just re-read that sentence - don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with love stories. It's only that romance novels are not really my cup of tea - no offence). In many respects it's a classic fantasy novel with a quest and a cast of helpful (or not so helpful) otherworldly entities but it is set in a very lush and colourful world that reminds one of pre-colonial India. It has a nice fairy tale ring to it but not so much that it distances the reader from the characters. They are undoubtedly flesh and blood, sometimes funny, sometimes sarcastic and capable of change and development. You can take a peek at it here:

EriSeg meint:
ich mag die Bücher von J. L. Langley
z.B.:

Without Reservations -> Teil 1
With Caution -> Teil 2

Die Bücher sind zwar in sich abgeschlossen, Man(n) trifft sich aber...in den Storys wieder.

Hi Bibliothekarin,

Kind regards
