Three manga/book reviews

Here are three of my book/manga reviews which recently ran in the Blade, you may check the magazine's Web site for more info:

"Adventures in Girls Love" about Erica Friedman and the current trends in yuri manga, which ran in Oct. '08 --
Erica asks that we make this correction: "FYI, the Yuri event n October - which I did not attend - was not the country's first. There have been several Yuri events before "Maiden's Garden 3" - Yuriket 1 and 2, Maiden's Garden 1 and 2 and Yuricon in 2005 in Tokyo." Sorry about that, Erica!

Then there's my story on fellow MySpacer Ginger Mayerson and her Wapshott Press, including her Bloglandia project (anthologies of blogs), which ran in the August '08 issue. At least they got Ginger's picture captioned correctly on-line (she was Annie Proulx[!] in the hard copy)--
About Bloglandia, vol. 2 is currently out and includes Molly Ian's story about sexual harassment in the Department of Defense, "Sex and the DoD."

Lastly there's my review of John Simpson's erotic gay thrillers, Murder Most Gay and Task Force, in the March '09 issue of Blade, link below:
