Listed below are links to weblogs that reference ONCE UPON A TIME IN GAY LITERATURE, by Greg Hewet:


This is so interesting. It seems that you're overly harsh on yourself for not being able to work on the magazine as a "labor of love." Maybe instead of reviving the magazine, there could be a "best of." The history is certainly worth preserving. Did the magazine publish prose too? Another point you make almost in passing about the fading of the "men's only" world would seem to apply to the straight world as well during that time. Thanks.

What a great idea to do a "best of"! TJWR did publish short stories and interviews, too. Essays once in a while. Hadn't thought about the parallel fading of the "men's world" in the straight world too. Somehow that seems different? As the straight was exclusionary to begin with and the gay was a form of survival. Thanks for your comment.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
