Vote Now: The 50 Greatest Gay Books

Over at AfterElton.com, voting has started on the 50 Greatest Gay Books. After the (albeit pretty predictable) travesty that was the 50 Greatest Gay Movies, make sure you have your say, and nominate your own personal top 5. Voting is open until October 31st and the results will be published in November.

Deciding upon bestest-most-favourite-ever-type things is never easy. Only John R. Gordon's works, my appreciation of which I've talked about previously, were guaranteed a place. I have a fondness for Alan Hollinghurst, but it's hard to single out any one novel. Larry Duplechan's books are all excellent and deserving of a wider audience. Shyam Selvadurai's Funny Boy is a joy. In any case, my five nominees are:

1) Skin Deep by John R. Gordon

2) Black Butterflies by John R. Gordon

3) Blackbird by Larry Duplechan

4) The Spell by Alan Hollinghurst

5) Funny Boy by Shyam Selvadurai

What will yours be?
