oo - lookit it's Erastes!
location: United Kingdom,
I wouldn't be surprised if there's no one still reading this, but if you are - HELLO!
I meant to keep a depression diary, but I miscalculated because depression (thank your stars if you've never had it) tends to make you not want to do anything at all, particularly the kind of thing that's done regularly.
I meant to. That will probably go on my tombstone.
anyway - hate the first post in a couple of years to be a promo, but there you go.
Guess who's got a new book out?
It's called "I Knew Him" and is published by LETHE PRESS by the amazing Steve Berman. The cover is by the amazing Ben Baldwin
Harry George Alexander Bircham: Not necessarily an infamous name in the annals of gay fictional characters…yet. But readers of Erastes’ newest historical novel should prepare themselves for many pages of suspenseful intrigue as the miscreant Bircham, a man of Wildean excesses and humours, will do anything it takes to bend Fate to his will. And that sinister will is to keep the affections and attentions of another young English lad. If accidents, if murder, are necessary, then Bircham is just the villain. Or anti-hero, as he is quite the early twentieth century charmer.
“If there can be such a thing as too much fun, this is probably it. It’s Hamlet in white tie and flapper dresses, relocated to the country-house circuit between the wars; but nobody quite acts out the roles laid down for them. This is just too good to miss.” —Chaz Brenchley, winner of the August Derleth Award and author of Blood Waters
"Erastes's newest novel is a coup de maître, a masterful gay thriller set in the 1920s with plenty of black humor."--Steve Berman, author, editor and Shirley Jackson Award finalist
