Middle age isn’t for the faint of heart. Being middle aged and gay to boot takes a special talent. Curtis Comer’s new book Out To Pasture takes a somewhat humorous look at what it means to be married, gay, and middle-aged. His experiences, everything from dealing within in-laws to actually considering the possibility of children to figuring out how to lose the that comfortable padding which suddenly appears when you get to those middle years are special treasures to which we can all relate.
Curtis Christopher Comer’s short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies, including Ultimate Gay Erotica, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008; Best Gay Love Stories, 2005, 2006, 2007; Dorm Porn I and II; My First Time, Volume Five; Fast Balls, Cruise Lines, Treasure Trails, and Starf*cker. His novel, Midnight Whispers: the Blake Danzig Chronicles, was released by Bold Strokes Books in 2010 and he just completed work on the sequel, Ghost of a Chance. He co-authored the novel Wonderland, just completed work on the sequel, Desperate Husbands and writes a weekly column for the Vital Voice in his hometown of St. Louis, where he lives with his long-term partner, Tim.
“Comer has been entertaining and enlightening Vital VOICE readers with his online column “(Not Quite) Out to Pasture” since May 2009. With crisp and compelling prose, the St. Louis-based writer has shared stories ranging from living in San Francisco to life with Tim, his partner of 19-years.”
-Colin Murphy, Editor, the “Vital Voice”
