Featured Story: The Reluctant Consort

Well imagine my shock, shock I say  when I got to GA and noticed the wrap up still up. I realized that we missed getting up the super duper Review Team's, in this case @aditus, review. Since we are basically a day late, we will keep it up for Tuesday as well. My apologies to the Review Team and all our members.   The Reluctant Consort by lilansui   Reviewer: Aditus Status: Complete Word Count: 299,713 I don’t understand that the story The Reluctant Consort has not mo

Monday, bloody Monday... Okay, just me whining But what got me looking forward to today is this great review by @aditus from the Review Team!       How I Accidentally Slept With My... by Ethan Reviewer: Aditus Status: Complete Word Count: 29,049 Are you trying to come up with who my... is?

It's a new year and will be another great year to take a look at some stories that you might have missed. But, before we start the new reviews, we wanted to take today to take a glance back at all the reviews that were done in 2019!  Thank you to @Timothy M. for compiling the list! 2019 January 14th: 2014-2018 Reviews Revisited February 11th: Holding Back by Thorn Wilde - Puppilull  Review comment: It was probably more fun to see the Deadpool movies after I read Holding Back.

Reviews Revisited (2014-2018)

Reviews for stories that were part of the CSR or are no longer found on site have been omitted.  If you're curious about the review and would like to read it, simply click on the date and the link will take you to the review.

Christmas Story Special Review

Well, it's Christmas Eve. Hope everyone is ready and if you celebrate, hopefully Santa visits you tonight. Make sure you're in bed early! To help you get into the holiday spirit, we asked the review team to pick some of their favorite Christmas/Holiday stories and write a short review. If you haven't already read these stories, they are definitely worth checking out. And maybe, if you have an extra moment or two during a lull in the festivities, leave the authors a story review!  Now, I'm going

Featured Story: 9.11 By Mark Arbour

This month’s Signature Background featured 9.11 by Mark Arbour. Usually when we feature a story by a Signature author, we like to get a review from one of the site members… but the very nature of 9.11 made that difficult. It’s a story in a very long, very complex series, and CAP isn’t something you can just jump into anywhere. So, instead, I thought we’d let a few of Mark’s over 1000 reviews (holy crap!!!) share reader’s favorite parts and thoughts from the very emotional tale.

Special Review - 2004 Winter Anthology: Christmas

So, I'm sure a lot of people noticed that I was asking for reviewers for a special project. Thank you to everyone who responded. With Christmas being this week, I thought it might be neat to take a look at the first ever anthology on Gay Authors. The theme for the 2004 Winter Anthology was "Christmas" which seemed rather fitting considering the season. I asked each reviewer to pick a story from that first anthology and review it for this special review feature. I hope you enjoy reading these sev

Blast From The Past

Saturdays can be so many things to so many people. To some it is a chance to get that stuff done that you haven't had time (or have put off) during the week. Others it's a great time to just sit back and relax and forget about the stress of work and/or school. For us here at GA, it's a chance to look back into our past and bring you something from either an old Newsletter or an old Anthology. Today we're looking at a story from the 2007: The Road Not Taken Anthology. Enjoy! The Key By Lugh

As we finish our first week of August, we decided to hit a bit of a dark Wednesday today. First we have a review of Promising Author Dark's Butterflies of Death, followed by a great review of Author Cehammock's Gaze. This review is by... (wait for it)... Dark! <cough - lame pun - so what>   So to get the bad pun out of your mind - go read. These reviews should hopefully inspire you to discover some great new fiction!       Butterflies of Death By Dark   Revie

Blast From The Past

Looking back - 2004 seems so long ago but at the same time, seems so recent. Here is a review from Renee Stevens of a story we had in our very first anthology - Nick Cringle by Myr.

First off, hope everyone who celebrates it is having a wonderful Independence Day! One of the great things about working on the blog has been that I have read so many new stories and new authors. Promising Author: Wrathofmagneto has been around for a little while, but I had never read his work. I'd heard a lot of good things and finally had a chance to check out two stories by him, "Captivated" and "Consequences". I wasn't disappointed and I hope you won't be either! Comicfan was in much the sam

This short story gem gives you a good introduction to Dion's writings. We also have a review by podiumdavis of Author GREEN's A Hero in the Hallways. I hope you enjoy these reviews and they lead you to checking out one or both of these authors.   Just Love Him by Dion   Status: Complete Word Count: 2

Middle of the week - to help you get over the hump, here are two great reviews of stories here on GayAuthors! First, Cia gives a very frank review of Life, by Promising Author Jian Sierra. Now, not all stories fully appeal to all reviewers - and while Cia loved the crafting of the story, as you will see, she had some reservations too. Our other review is by Comicfan, of Author Mark92's Another Fairy Story.   I love reviews like these in that they give me all of the background so I can see if I
