Gay Noir

Here's a fun new tumblr site.

Gay Noir.

Check it out!

The site is moderated by the author of

which also looks cool.

Here is the blurb:

The year is 1949. The East End of London is still recovering from the blitz. Fitzgerald O’Sullivan is a young man with romantic notions of living like an impoverished writer. In an attempt to escape his past, he abandons his life of privilege and rents a room in the East End. There he meets Roy Parker, a chirpy Cockney with a working-class charm. Roy asks Fitz to write a story about how he saved the lives of two Jewish ladies during the war. What follows is a far-fetched tale filled with lies and exaggerations. Roy is obviously a fantasist, but he is also an irrepressible charmer and Fitz becomes infatuated with him. But Fitz doesn’t know that there is a kernel of truth in the tale he is telling. When the body of a Jewish woman is fished up off the coast of Kent, the real story slowly begins to unfold. Fitz soon finds himself embroiled in a world of theft, deceit and murder. The Deluded is a noir thriller in which nothing and no one is what it at first seems to be. It is a dark tale of love, bitterness and vengeance set in the chaotic aftermath of the Second World War.
