But the fact that they, he and Gandy, had continued to have long ecstatic nights together was surprising, even with the new lapse in restrictions. Sometimes, quite uncharacteristic of Earthmen, they would wonder at their carelessness - or had treading on the brink of disaster been an integral part of their attraction?" Peter Tuesday Hughes was an early exponent of the genre known as gay gothic, publishing more than thirty novels between 1968 and 1978 including mysteries, science fiction, romance, supernatural thrillers, and a celebrated gay detective series featuring leading man Bruce Doe. Adults only.
