London Triptych

by Jonathan Kemp

"London itself is as powerful a presence here as the three gay men whose lives it absorbs."?The Times Literary Supplement"Vivid and visceral, London Triptych cuts deep to reveal the hidden layers of a secret history."?Jake Arnott, author of The Long FirmRent boys, aristocrats, artists, and criminals populate this sweeping novel in which author Jonathan Kemp skillfully interweaves the lives and loves of three very different men in gay London across the decades.In the 1890s, a young man named Jack apprentices as a rent boy and discovers a life of pleasure and excess that leads to new friendships, most notably with the soon-to-be-infamous Oscar Wilde. A century later in 1998, David tells his own tale of unashamed decadence from prison, recalling life as a young man arriving in the city in the mid-'80s just as the scourge of AIDS hit. Where their paths cross, in the politically sensitive 1950s, when gay men were the target of police and politicians alike, the artist Colin tentatively explores his sexuality while working on his painting "London Triptych."Moodily atmospheric and rich with history, London Triptych is a sexy, resplendent portrait of the politics and pleasures of queer life in one of the world's most fascinating cities.Jonathan Kemp lives in London, where he currently teaches creative writing at Birkbeck College. London Triptych, his first novel, was published in the United Kingdom in 2010 and won the Authors' Club Best First Novel Award.

The Lone Sentinel

by Jo Dereske

THE LONE SENTINEL Erik knew he was doing wrong. His father had been killed and he'd failed to report it. Instead, he'd gone on alone caring for the beam that was the Lone Sentinel. The beam protected biosote, a strange growth needed by an alien race, the Helgatites. People of the Earth colony on the planet Azure guarded the biosote in return for material and protection provided by the Helgatites. Erik had lived all his life at the Lone Sentinel. But he knew that Trust Control, the overseers of all the sentinels, would not let him stay there alone. He would have to move to the only city on Azure, New Province. What that would be like he knew too well from videos: too many people, too many buildings, too much to fear. Erik carefully followed all the rules by which the keepers of the sentinels lived. But nothing in his instructions prepared him for the arrival of Willa and Augusta, two runaways from New Province, or for the failure of his radio contact with Trust Control and the unexpected arrival of the Helgatites, who'd come, they said, to give the biosote a special treatment. What was he to do about Augusta and her mysterious sister, Willa? And what was it, really, that the Helgatites were doing? Sometimes it takes more than one head to solve big problems. It took all three of them, Erik, Augusta, and Willa, to discover what was really going on at the Lone Sentinel. And the only possible way to solve it involved more danger than Erik had ever thought he might face, even in New Province.
