July brings a slew of new LGBT relevant titles including some steamy new erotica and romance titles from Thom Nickels and Radclyffe. In the nonfiction category two strong titles include David L. Eng‘s The Feeling of Kinship and Queer Blake by Helen P. Bruder and Tristanne J. Connolly. One of this month’s two new gay mysteries, Scalping the Red Rocks, was reviewed by Wayne Gunn last month.

    Hey B. Yes! That book is about Elizabeth Bishop’s time in Brazil and her love affair with Lota de Macedo Soares. Two of my reviewers have raved already!

    I don’t really read a lot of stuff like that… mainly YA LGBT books. I’ll have to give it a go!
