In 1992, Robert Rodi published Fag Hag-the first in a series of indelible novels that mapped (and mocked) the gay landscape of the irrepressible, unforgettable gay nineties. Now, more than twenty years later, he returns to the characters from those original novels to see how they've fared over the ensuing decades. We find Fag Hag's Natalie Bixby facing the limits of her homophilia...Closet Case's Mitchell Sayer discovering that coming out and living out are two very different matters...What They Did to Princess Paragon's Brian Parrish and Jerome Kornacker stumbling into yet another epic, superheroine-related misunderstanding... Drag Queen's Kitten Kaboodle coming back from the dead at the most inconvenient moment imaginable...Kept Boy's Dennis Racine facing the arrival of both an old lover and a new temptation...and Bitch Goddess's Viola Chute trying desperately to maneuver the strange new all-digital, social-media driven entertainment landscape. Then, in a final novella, the major players from all six novels come together to mourn the loss of someone who managed to touch all their lives...and to confront the surreal nature of their very existence. It's Robert Rodi's fond farewell to the characters and concepts that helped him define a decade.
