The Last Gasp gals (Erastes, Chris Smith, Jordan Taylor, me) will be chatting over at the Speak Its Name group today. There will be giveaways, excerpts and - if our last chat is anything to go by - lunacy on a vast scale. Were-narwhals and were-Humboldt-squids. Don't ask.

The building excitement is because the Cochranes (volcanic ash allowing) are off to gay Paree this weekend to watch the rugby. Allez Toulouse!

Unseasonal, I know...

Last Gasp: Four gay couples struggle to find happiness during historical periods on the brink of change. Take a trip back to 1840s Hong Kong, Edwardian Syria, 1898 Yukon and 1936 Italy, and experience passion that will endure through the ages. Stories by Erastes, Jordan Taylor, Chris Smith (whose debut this is) and me. My offering is called 'Sand'.

“Safe upon solid rock the ugly houses stand: Come and see my shining palace built upon the sand.”
People come to Syria for many reasons; tourism, archaeology, or because they need to leave Edwardian England to escape potential disgrace. Andrew Parks is one of those, burying past heartache and scandal among the tombs.
Charles Cusiter has travelled here as well, as chaperone to a friend whose fondness for the opposite sex gets him into too much trouble at home. Out in the desert there aren’t any women to turn Bernard’s head – just the ubiquitous sand.
The desert works its magic on Charles, softening his heart and drawing him towards Andrew. Not even a potentially fatal scorpion sting can overcome the power this strange land exerts.

Took the biggest Cochrane child back to Uni yesterday and was allowed to stay over and be a student again for the night. Lovely. Returned to Cochrane Towers in time to see another wonderful 52 year old fight his way into the Snooker World Championship quarter-finals.

And in other news, the Last Gasp anthology has a lovely cover.

I'm sure this guy is wearing a scrum cap and jockstrap. Bliss...
