VIEWS FROM THE ACORN UNIVERSE, 8/12/08

This week, Books, Jake, Star Trek: The Experience.

BOOKS.

The Kindle edition of The Acorn Stories, winner of a Pride in the Arts Award, is currently charting as follows. Those charts update constantly.

#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle Books > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Gay & Lesbian

#2 in Books > Gay & Lesbian > Literature & Fiction > Fiction > Short Stories > Gay

#3 in Kindle Store > Kindle Books > Fiction > Genre Fiction > Anthologies


The rest of the gay fiction top five is dominated by queer-themed scifi, fantasy, or horror.

#2 Second Thoughts: More Queer and Weird Stories by Steve Berman, an author whose works I’ve praised before.

#3 Without Reservations, J. L. Langley’s queer werewolf epic.

#4 IM, Rick R. Reed’s cleverly promoted tale of stolen identity. Reed, a doorQ-er, is passing himself up, with his thriller Deadly Vision at #8.

#5 is a magic-tinged book from Mark Abramson, with a title that might say it all: Beach Reading.

SciFi Wire lists the Hugo Awards. SciFi Wire also talks to fantasy author Patricia Briggs about her werewolf POV novel, Cry Wolf.

JAKE GYLLENHALL.

For beach viewing, try Jake Gyllenhaal is the Shirtless Prince of Persia.

STAR TREK.

I finally caught Star Trek: The Experience! See it before it ends! It’s geeky fun!
