Foxglove Moments

Alan's haunting novel of the AIDS epidemic, As If Death Summoned, was released on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2020, and has won the Foreword INDIES LGBT Book of the Year Award. Watch the book trailer here. Read the reviews here.



Recently there's been an awful lot of flirtatious tail-twitching going on from one of the squirrels. She twitches her tail and barks, twitches her tail and barks.

The other squirrel lounges next to the pool, seemingly oblivious to the signals.

"Look, man," I tell him, "she wants you. Go for it!"

He continues lying supine, showing absolutely no interest.


More tail-twitching. More barking. Still no movement.

"Really, you're missing an incredible opportunity here!"


Could be due to wearing a heavy fur coat in this heat, I suppose.
