Gay Writers add Their Stories to the Literary Canon of the deep South; What is it about the American South that continues to inspire its sons to write? Long caricatured and lampooned, the American South continues to fascinate and provide fertile fields for storytelling for its natives, especially its young gay men. These tales, now told by the current generation, still spring from the hearts, minds and groins. Told in the soft accents of the gay men who know both the horror and tenderness that is their heritage, Rebel Yell is a singular collection of tragic, heartwarning and humorous tales. 465 Acres is Jay Quinn's own poignant tale of a man facing the lover he let get away, and his anguish over the choices he made. Thomas Long gives the reader a portion of a novel-in-progress that only whets the appetite for more. It's the final dying days for a clergyman, and the hidden parts of his life that are discovered after his death are going to be a shock. There are also outstanding pieces from Dan Stone and George Singer, both giving us a glimpse into being young and gay in the South.
