1 Hello Andrej,

I've just read "Star's Shadow", and I found it very exciting (I couldn't stop reading!), arousing, touching and healing.

I have some problems with sex, because I received a very puritan education and had a small traumatic experience with my father as a child. Reading your story has showed me that loving sex can be something wonderful and healing, what I already experience with my boyfriend to some extent.

Your story really frees the desire as something natural and good (as long as it respects the other). I need to remember that!

As for the english, I can not judge the langage, being French, but I found your story very rich and well built. I've just noticed a few typing errors.

I wish you all the best, and many other beautiful and inspiring stories!

M. S.

1 Hello

I can speak both Italian and English. Even if I prefer writing in English. Hope you don't mind.

I have read your stories sometime ago. I read again a couple of your stories. But my favorites from the ones read are definitely Chipi-2574 d.C., Star's Shadow, Boy-san, Jaume di Sitges and the favorite of all Un giorno di carnevale... I just love the last mentioned story. I could read it a thousand times. Renzo and Raffaele are the perfect couple. So romantic. I found it so funny when Raffaele tried different types to have sex with to found out what the problem is. And I guess you can call me a sucker for such love stories. Love at first sight you could say.

I still didn't decide in which language I prefer reading stories. For now they were mostly in Italian since they are the original ones. The only thing that was a little disturbing and mostly the same are the sound and words during sex scenes in all the stories that I read. To much oooh, che bello, bellissimo. I still didn't read your newer stories so I don't yet know if you changed something. But maybe it would be a good idea.

That's it for now.

I hope you are not to disappointed but you can still consider me a big fan that will continue to read your stories on and on :D

Bye and have a good time,
Ivana

1 Dear Andrej,

I just finished Star's Shadow. It is a good story but I find just a few places where there is an awkward phrase or even a mistake, which makes the reader stop and think and so turns the smooth flow of the story into a jerky one.

It is interesting that you were helped by 'Hank' which is an American name, almost rare in England but the story has 'arse' - the English word and not 'ass' - the American word and I do hate the american word as in English it means donkey (or by analogy, a fool).

You see I am a born teacher. I can't help marking the books even when they are not the work of my pupils!

Love
Anthony

1 Hello Andrej,

I've read three of your stories, "His Foot In Too Many Shoes", "The Choice", and "Star's Shadow." I love happy endings. I think you do, too. The only comments that i have is that you take a lot of time building up the plot (which is great) and you spend a lot of time detailing the central part of a story (which is also great). However, I have only one criticism. It seems as though you seem to rush the endings in order to tie everything into a neat little bundle of joy! I thoroughly enjoy reading your stories and cannot put one down until i read every chapter.

I've worked with children all my life and have been confronted with, but never pursued, many situations similiar to Gustavo and Adriano's in "The Choice", so I can really relate to that tale. You absolutely described the emotions correctly. However, I have been besieged by both girls and boys and have had to behave circumspectly. At the present time, one of the pre-teen boys from a choir that I directed continues to call me. He has a 'crush' on me. However my family and his are aware of this fact and we all treat him with love and care realizing that he will grow out of it, as he is receiving no encouragement.

I am impressed with the way you bring love into the sexual expression of your characters. Love is so often overlooked. Most people are just looking for someone to fuck. I'm a romantic and enjoy the emphasis you place on the LOVE relationship in your stories.

I'm so happy that I've discovered your writings. I look forward to reading stories that you are writing in this year 2006! Tell me where they are!

Sincerely, Sarina

1 Hi Andrej

I have read five of your stories now and can't wait to read more. I don't think I could choose a favorite if my life depended on it they are all so well written. I have turned a few friends on to them and they are enjoying them as much as I am.

One of my friends has even decided to purchase his own computer since starting to read some of your stories. We went to the beach for a weekend away and I had printed "The Star's Shadow" and "Life Starts at Twenty-Five" to take with me. He started to read them and did not stop until he had read both of them. We visited your website after the trip and he was as impressed as I was the first time I visited.

Thanks again for sharing it and your stories with the world.

thanks
billy

1 Dear Andrej,

I am a 27-year-old American male. The reason I am writing to you is that I want to express my gratefulness to you. You see, I am married to a beautiful wife and we have two kids, yet sometimes I wonder what it will be like to be with another man. God knows, I wanted so much, however, I cannot be unfaithful to my wife. It eats me, drives me crazy sometimes. The Internet has certainly opened up a lot of possibilities. I like to read, I like to see pictures of naked men, fantasizing how beautiful it would be to love and be loved and to make love to another handsome man. I have read tons of stories that are just sex. I enjoyed them a lot but they left me an empty feeling afterwards. I think you understand what I am talking about.

Yesterday, just by coincidence, I read one of your stories "We are Presumed to be Enemies." To tell you the truth, I never liked long stories before, but thank god, I read your story. I stayed in my library the whole night and finished reading "Enemies" and later "The Star's Shadow." I skipped dinner and just read and read until 4 am in the morning. I was breathless!!! I laughed, I cried, and u know, I didn't even remember the last time I cried. To say I was touched is a gross understatement. I was so deeply moved by your characters and the love between your characters. I never knew such love existed!!! It is really an uplifting experience, for you have showed me how beautiful and powerful love can be between two men.

Dear Andrej, I cannot say in words how I can thank you enough. You showed me a world I never imagined, and above all, you showed me love. I feel I am a better man now because of that and for that, I will be forever indebted to you.

Best regards,
Matt

1 Dear Andrej-

I read "The Black Clover"...
You are a man who seems to have so much love in his heart and soul.
If you have a lover he is a very exceptional person indeed.

Then, The Star's Shadow...
This was fantastic! Vous etes tres fantastique!

I think I am i love with a man I have never met, but who's spirit if it is as pure as the things he writes can take me anywhere and does.

I hope you don't mind but I have to ask, are either you or your lover present or passed handicapped... you protray these parts so well.

Again I have been moved to tears reading "Epistolary". I have had to start keeping a box of kleenex next to the computer you write so beautifully.

Thanks again

Dave
One of many faithful admires I am sure.

1 Hello Andrej,

I have read several of your stories. I also really enjoyed the story "The Star's Shadow".

Thank you so much for your time and your stories. I'm off to read the latest you've posted on ASSGM.

Love to you and your beautiful friends,

Jerry

1 My Dearest Andrej,

I read what you said about "Counting To Ten", and I could only think of a great composer of music, who, most of the times write beautiful symphonies and concertos; but sometimes also writes lighter music - etudes, waltzes, etc. just to change the tempo. I believe that is what you were doing when you wrote "Counting To Ten". It is a beautiful, lilting story with only a few characters to keep track of.

Almost the exact opposite of "Soul in the Cellular". Whew! That story must have taken you a long time to write, what with all the historical references. And the ending! It reminded me of the rhyme entitled The Boy that is Born... - Guess on which day I was born. Really! Isn't that some kind of coincidence?

But, like Patrick in The Star's Shadow (which I am now reading) I am lonely... You are so full of love and I desire and need love so badly. I don't think in my entire life I have ever had it. And then I started to read your stories and get aroused many times. But all I can do is fantasize... But why is it that I can say these things to you in an email and not to anyone in person?

Thank you for caring.

All my love
Ed

1 Andrej,

I have reread "The Puppets' Theater" two more times in order to get the full meaning and depth of the story. At this time I almost feel like a puppet with you pulling the strings. I start reading your stories and cannot stop until I am finished, they are so engrossing.

I am in the process of reading "The Soul In The Cellular", have downloaded "Counting to Ten" and am now in the process of downloading "The Star's Shadow".

While printing out some pages I was surfing your web and I can't believe the enormity of it. I believe one could easily spend hours going through everything - there is so much.

And again, I am astounded by "The Soul In The Cellular" with the amount of history. Never having been good in history, I am wondering if what you write about is at all factual. I would really like to know.

With all my love,
Ed

1 I must admit that I have spent many nights reading your works. You are truly one of the best writers of the 20th century. I have just completed "Star's Shadow" and let me say that once again I am impressed with your talent. I would like to encourage you to continue in your work.

May God bless and keep your name in the Lambs book of life.

Jason

1 Hi Andrej,

You really are a bugger of a bloke. You have ruined three nights beauty sleep this week.

It started with me finding "Dear Eugenio" on the Nifty files the first few chapters, then the next night I found the chapters up to 9. Then I fumed as the story stopped at a crucial point and it wasn't until the next night I remembered your home page, luckily the whole story was there. I also found two more stories, "Star's Shadow", "Counting to Ten". So for three nights in a row I wasn't able to get to bed before 1.30am. Until I had finished them.

One wee query - Is "Counting to Ten" finished? It seemed to finish up in the air??

PS. Are you an author in your own right? By that I mean do you also write novels etc? I find I really get into you books, I think I have only found two other authors whose books I can't put down until I've finished them, who publish on the net.

Regards
Murray

1 I found the story "The Star's Shadow" to be very touching, and being a romanticist, loved the love scenes and was very aroused by the love they shared. The weakest point in the story was Jean Luc's lecturing Martin on his choice of youths. I feel it is weak and dismisses the whole boy-love scene as a matter of choice. I decidedly am not a boy lover, but feel it is too whimsically dismissed by Jean Luc's words. I do believe there is much more to it than Jean Luc seems to be aware of.

Hank

(Andrej's note: Jean Luc is not "lecturing" Martin, and does not dismiss the boy-love scene -- he is just telling Martin how much wrong he did to his step-son... Please, read more carefully what I wrote.)

1 Andrej,

I enjoyed the story "The Star's Shadow" -- as I do most of your stories -- mainly because there is a plot, and this, to me is better in the long run than pure sex without a real story line. Your sex scenes are stimulating and it is easy to become involved with the characters. As all romance novels, everybody ends up happy (and satisfied!)

H.
