Being Monday, it's the start of yet another week. What better way to start the week than to feature a story by one of GA's earliest authors, Comicality! Hope you enjoy this review and if you do, then go check the story out yourself and leave Comsie a review!

So, “Of The Flesh” by Comicality. Comicality, or Comsie as he is also known, has been with Gay Authors since the beginning. He was one of the very first authors and is one of the beginning few who are still writing. Right now, he has a hundred and five stories on the site. It can be a daunting task to try and figure out where to start, but luckily for me, I had a friend who suggested this story to me when I said I was looking for a short story by Comicality to read.
“Of The Flesh” follows a college student who is obsessed with porn. He spends virtually all of his free time searching the internet for that perfect “boy”. He just knows that if he just keeps going, only a few more clicks, that he will find what he is looking for. He finally finds that perfect “boy” in the form of Jonas Wicke. Or rather, he finds Jonas’s website. The only damper on his exuberance is the fact that the site clearly states that Jonas has passed away.
What follows is certainly an adventure as our main character is taken on a journey that he never expected. The strength of the story telling for this short story is astounding and showcases Comsie’s skill at creating a story that calls to its readers.
I wasn’t sure exactly where the story was going, but I found myself unable to stop reading, wondering exactly where Comsie was taking me. The ending was certainly not what I was expecting, but it’s definitely not something I’ll forget anytime soon. If you haven’t already read this, or you were as daunted as I was by the many choices, start with “Of The Flesh.” It is certainly worth the read!
Also, don't forget that we can't feature a story if we don't have a review for it. With that in mind, we turn to the GA membership to help. If there's a story by a Hosted, Promising, Poet, or Author that you've read that you would like to see showcased on the blog then let us know and write up a review for it!
