"…while it is true that such a man is generally considered to be in want of a wife, it is equally true that not all men desire female companionship, just as not every woman dreams of being married."
Lesbians and gentlegays (and misc other folk of all persuasions) I present to you the ultimate queer Regency novel: Gay Pride and Prejudice (available on Kindle and in paperback), a skilled rewriting of  Jane Austen’s original book by Kate Christie to turn it completely queer.

Promises, Promises, L-J Baker, Lethe Press, 2011.
“Sandy Blunt, witch, has big dreams but C-average magic skills. Her only noteworthy talent is for paying extravagant compliments to women. Trouble is, when she uses that gift, she unwittingly foretells the future for a pretty princess. The punishment for prophesying about one of royal blood is death. With the help of ill-assorted companions, including a self-proclaimed princess in disguise with a wild imagination, a self-absorbed member of the royal guard, and the not-so-average girl next door, Sandy has a year and a day to travel to far-flung places – encountering such dangerous creatures as a dragon who writes awful poetry, slovenly elves, and boarding house landladies – to collect the weird and magical items needed to turn her prophecies into promises and so evade the executioner.”

[image description: the cover of It’s Always Spring Break Somewhere In The Galaxy by Raven C.S. McCracken. It features a yellow (but oddly textured) school bus jetting through space. On the side it says THE MISPLACED. The title is in cheesy powerpoint font, and it all is hopefully going for ironic and ridiculous. End description.]
