This community blog is for announcements and discussion of Dusk Peterson's writings.

Peterson has written fantasy stories on friendship, gay historical fantasy tales, and contemporary gay fiction. Occasionally, a heterosexual love story will appear as well. Suspense plays an important role in many of the tales; the conflict in those tales is both external and internal. Peterson's stories are often placed in dark settings, such as prisons or wartime locations. The mood of the stories, however, is not one of unrelieved gloominess. Romance and friendship, especially male friendship, are recurring themes.

Please don't Friend this journal. Instead, I now have a new blog. Although it's located at InsaneJournal, you can watch it on your LiveJournal Friends page. I'm continuing to post notices of my fiction there, as well as entries about my everyday life.
