The Autumn Gay Tints 
The main character of my story The Autumn Gay Tints is a Londoner in his twenties of the name of Oscar Maria Graf. A Stenbock-like figure, by his origin and his dabbling in literature, he is much hotter, more active, able-bodied, pragmatic and of great vitality than Eric Stenbock (1860-1895) who is no more, by the time of the story. In the beginning, we see Oscar Maria Graf in his den, early in the morning. On the way home, his old friend drops at his and brings some news. The point is that their archenemy’s young relative comes to London, from countryside, unattended. They plan seduction of the young man. All the personages of the story are 20+ years old. Happy ending.   

Fin de siècle and Mists of Albion 
The short story “Fin de siècle and Mists of Albion” is initially a part of the novel “La Lune Blanche” (2005) by Lara Biyuts and at the same time a part of writings by the novel’s main character. Male bonding and the Victorian era. The big town and an orphan. Excesses of bachelorhood and a young thing learning the world. The new obsession of a middle-aged gay man and the mystery from the tangled and disturbing past. “Shared, secret, celebrated, exploded, subtle--as an unrequited longing or mellowing through the years--at long distance, across continents or so close, it is never quite close enough--from the inside out and from the outside in, the likely and the unlikely--hot, unfair, jealous, crazy Love is coming. Get ready--now, it comes to You!” (Lara Biyuts)

From the book reviews: 

 “Lara Biyuts’ writing is deep and multi layered.  Expect to read this book a few times in order to glean all the mysteries  and interlocking energies held inside the writing. I don’t want to give away one of the more interesting twists of the book, but suffice it to say it holds a few surprises.” (Maggie Mack Books)

 “I found the story-telling through this narrator to be very well done and all of the characters had quite a bit of depth to them.  Biyuts did a very good job in her writing of this book.  I could actually see this book being studied as literature in a university class.” (Sam Kasbrick's Reviews)

“I would definitely recommend this book to fans of historical fiction or maybe to fans of old-school Gothic literature.” (Sam Kasbrick's Reviews)

 “Complex story, complex writing style, but if you have the patience, and the courage to start it, I think you will find this is a very original insight in an uncommon era and setting for a novel.” (Elisa Rolle Reviews)

“O gentle vision in the dawn:
My spirit over faint cool water glides,
Child of the day,
To thee;
And thou art drawn
By kindred impulse over silver tides
The dreamy way
To me.”
(Harold Monro, Collected Poems)
