Sexy high-school footballer Kyle has two big blind-spots: first, he assumes he's straight, and second, he doesn't know quite how much his shy, geeky classmate Craig lusts after him. When the two are thrown together after a charity slave auction, however, how incredible the sex is turns out to be hard to miss. Problem is, Kyle's awakened sexuality is on a collision course with his hot teammates, and not everyone in his conservative Midwestern town is quite so open-minded.When Kyle unexpectedly gets up close and personal with another closeted jock, and realizes in the process that there's more than just teenage hormones between himself and Craig, he's faced with a choice: walk away, or fight for what until now he didn't know he wanted. Meanwhile, Craig is learning that there's more to his appetite for athletic guys than playing the meek submissive, and Kyle's mea-culpa arrives right on time for him to explore some of the kinks he never knew he had.Hard bodies meet even harder truths as two very different guys discover that, while you can buy someone's time, you still have to win their heart.

They call him Titan. Calder King has it all: a football scholarship at a prestigious university, a guaranteed position as CEO of his family's company (someday) and all the hot co-eds he can handle, but Calder is way more interested in his missing memories and the weird things he can do -- like his super strength and invulnerability. Not to mention the crazy vigilantes terrorizing the city, the ones Calder alone (aka Titan) can handle. Enter super genius Patrick Black. Not only is he Calder's new college roommate, he's also the ward of the man Calder's family despises. On the surface they should be enemies, but Patrick's the only person who understands what it's like to have the whole world expect stuff from you -- stuff Calder's not sure he can give. Never mind that Patrick is also openly gay and way too hot for his own good. Because Calder is straight, and Patrick doesn't date straight guys. Patrick Black's whole persona is a carefully controlled lie. By day, he's a studious college student, and by night he's a vigilante exposing the city's dark underbelly as Apprentice. That doesn't mean he can't have a little fun once in a while. Calder King is fun and gorgeous, but he's also as straight as a damn ruler, which takes him off the table. When a mysterious stranger named Titan rescues Patrick one night, sparks fly. If Patrick can't have Calder, maybe Apprentice can have Titan. Lust and sex bring these two college roommates together but will their buried secrets tear them apart?

It's all fun and games until someone puts his heart out. After being outed to his hockey team and then changing schools, Jock figures he's due for something good — like the sex he missed out on in the closet. Toby, the hot grad student he meets at a frat party, seems like a great place to start, and their night together is an awesome introduction to the fine art of hooking up. Toby's heart takes a bruising after the near-perfect experience with Jock leads to...nothing. He's been left on the outside as his friends pair up into blissful coupledom, and he's in danger of never completing (or starting) his thesis. Can't something go right? Then Toby's coerced into chaperoning a Theta Alpha Gamma trip to France. Not that he's complaining. What better place to finish his thesis and get over that frat boy? Except Jock's outing is leaked to the press, turning him into an unwilling gay rights martyr, and he decides France would be a great escape, too. It's a break from reality for both guys, but they soon find their connection is as real as it gets.

Letting go is the first step to healing...or bringing it all crashing down. When an avalanche of books cuts off access to his living room, university librarian Jasper Richardson can no longer ignore the truth. His ever-growing piles of books, magazines and newspapers can no longer be classified as a "collection." It's a hoard, and he needs professional help. Professional clutter clearer and counselor Lewis Miller thinks he's seen it all, but even he has to admit he's shocked. Not so much by the state of Jasper's house, but by the level of attraction he still feels for the sexy bookworm he remembers from school. What a shame that Lewis's ethical code forbids relationships with clients. As Jasper makes slow but steady progress, though, the magnetic pull between them is so strong even Lewis is having trouble convincing himself it's a temporary emotional attachment arising from the therapeutic process. Jasper longs to prove to Lewis that this is the real deal. But first he'll have to lay bare the root of his hoarding problem...and reveal the dark secret hidden behind his walls of books. Warning: Contains a level-headed counselor with a secret addiction, a bespectacled geek with a sweet tooth, a killer "to-be-read" pile, embarrassing parents, a van called Alice, and deliciously British slang.

It's the middle of the twenty-first century, and the next Ice Age has suddenly sent global warming into reverse. Saul is one of the Ice People, the threatened peoples of the northern hemisphere, who, watching their world freeze over, try to move south towards the equator... 'Excellent ... intelligent, driven, imaginative, obsessive yet still gracious, one of our best ... Exciting stuff.' Fay Weldon 'Ambitious and subtle... She writes elegantly, unsentimentally, expertly... The Ice People works persuasively as science fiction, and is truthful about our emotional lives.' Independent 'Infused with poetic intensity ... this is a gripping fictional realisation of what we fear: the death of civilisation. Maggie Gee achieves her apocalyptic vision without the clank of hardware and intergalactic wars. Her detail is precise and controlled and her beautifully orchestrated whisper of redemption is rooted in eternal myth.' Elizabeth Buchan The Times 'An intriguing novel of ideas, fully fleshed out ... Classy science fiction.' Mail on Sunday 'A remarkable novel... up there with Orwell and Huxley.' Jeremy Paxman 'A gem of a book.' Rose Tremain 'A rattling good page-turning yarn.'

Dude, You're a Fag

Masculinity and Sexuality in High School

High school and the difficult terrain of sexuality and gender identity are brilliantly explored in this smart, incisive ethnography. Based on eighteen months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, Dude, You're a Fag sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices. C. J. Pascoe's unorthodox approach analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process but also a sexual one. She demonstrates how the "specter of the fag" becomes a disciplinary mechanism for regulating heterosexual as well as homosexual boys and how the "fag discourse" is as much tied to gender as it is to sexuality.
