I had to write to you again Having just finished - The Forceps - I think that you surpassed yourself when you wrote the story A real story - that just happens to have loving gay characters - it was very readable and much better than endless descriptions of sex I hope you can continue to translate and post more of your works
As we are still in the Covid pandemic and you are posting - I trust you are well - and continue to stay healthy Regards

I just finished your story, "Forceps Mark" and loved it. It was sweet and, like most of your stories, has a happy ending. The sex and romance between Neils and Gunthar was wonderful.
I have also started on "Crown of Iron". They are similar stories and I love those set in Medieval times.
Thanks for all the work that it takes to write these beautiful stories.

I have to write and tell you how much I am enjoying your story, "Forceps Mark". I always enjoy your stories but this one seems special somehow. I have already fallen in love with both Olaf and Guntar. I can't wait to see what the oracle Brett has to tell them. Please post it soon so I don't have to wait!

Sorry for the delay in replying, I have been busy reading another of your stories. I read 'Presumed to be Enemies' on Nifty and have just read 'The Forceps Mark' on your site. I like the theme of a love that has succeeded despite trials and tests. It is difficult to put into words exactly what I liked in your stories but I know I am hooked on them so will be continuing to visit your site regularly.
Keep up the great work of maintaining your site.

Hi Andrej and Matt!
I just happened across your story The Forceps Mark on nifty and I was just captivated! What a wonderful tale. I was very fearful that there wasn't going to be a proper ending to it. I just hate when I find a great story that the author gives up on. Thank you so much for completeing this one!
I wish you both all possible happiness and hope to read more of your stories. You're both very lucky to
have each other! Take care,

The Odd Couple - another wonderful story Andrej. This is without doubt the most beautiful of your stories that I have read. On a scale 1 to 10 I give it 10!!
The main characters were wonderful, both of them. Dear Maurizio certainly endured a lot of suffering to get his "man".
I read Double shunt on Friday and found it most humorous.
Have just read Forceps Mark and loved it, although I must admit I skipped a lot of the "graphic" bits.

I have just read Forceps Mark and really loved the story!!
Have also read the first two parts of Italian Brothers and enjoyed those as well and look forward to part 3.
Your stories are truly wonderful.

I'm an 18yo from Florida and your stories are awesome. You've got an amazing gift as a writer. I can sympathize with so many of your characters and find smiliarities with many of them too.
My favorite story of yours is Snot Boy; I've read it 3 times since I discovered your website.
I've read all of them and none were bad ... I enjoyed them all
However, my other favorites were: Boss' Toy, Day of Carnival, Forceps Mark. The Puppet's Theater was also really interesting with all the twists in plot.
I just enjoy your stories because I can find a lot of commonalities between myself and your characters in the feelings and thoughts they have, as well as the hurtles they have to overcome... Also I like to see stories where good, honest people make mistakes and are able to overcome or be forgiven for them...
Your stories are GREAT! I'm in the process of re-reading them. Please e-mail me when you finish your next story and post it on your website as I love to read them! Thanks !!

I really love your story "The forceps mark" -- have you invented it yourself? The scenes where the boy was kidnapped reminded me -- this is a compliment -- of similar ones in Ozu's great movie Sansho the Bailiff -- which since you live in Japan you've probably seen. I was impressed by the humanity of the scenes in the village, "Olaf's" early life... the people, and the boy, seem quite real.
I have a forceps mark myself -- on my forehead, it still hurts sometimes, and I'm 50 years old... and where I grew up in the South, my mammy told me I was a prince -- so I'm finding myself identifying with the hero in an unusually personal way. I do like them so much. I haven't finished the story yet -- they've just made love by the waterfall, but they haven't realized that it's a fulfillment of the prophecy yet.
Thanks so much.....
All the best,

I have read a number of your novels and you write in a way I like very much. Real romantic and rued sometimes but it is the way live is. King of Sitges, The forceps mark, Snot Boy and some of the other I have read and still there are many to read so I can not say I have a favorite yet but you will know when I come to the end of the list. I can see you have many to translate I will look forward when there will be a new. I can not read Italian but I have a friend who have read me small parts of them, and I liked it.
I like you....

Well, I finally got my new printer installed so that I could print out the rest of The Forceps Mark and when I finished it I was pleased that it had a happy ending. I enjoyed it very much as I have all of your stories. I hope you continue writing and translating your stories.
My best wishes, as always

I recently read your short story "The Forceps Mark" of the gay Prince Niels who became king and his lover Guntar. I found it in the newsgrooups. This is a thoroughly enjoyable short story. And, if I am not mistaken, close in fact as to the sexual prowess between males over the centuries past.
Some would rather forget than remember.
I think it was Plato who referred to male love to be higher than that of love between a man and a woman. It is shameful that parts of the world still abolish homosexuality.
Thank you for your story. I also like your web site.

I read your stories on Nifty Archives and liked them a lot.
I just had to take a few moments and tell you how much I am enjoying your story "The Forceps Mark" about Niels. I have read many stories on the net over the past few years and many are good for their purpose, but yours is a story that brings pleasure from just the reading. Your writing style is good, the story line is very good and the sex is not the sole purpose. I have not written anyone else to tell them about their stories. It is not normally my style. But I could not resist telling you as a way to encourage you.
I also found your site extremely interesting and your information correct.
Your English is interesting. I do not know your nationality, but I can sense you are not American or English and that English is not your first language.
When I first saw the size of it and the fact that it was set on old Scandinavian times, I was not attracted to it. However, I opened and read Chapter 1 and was immediately captivated by it, reading its entirety in a single setting.
Thank you once again for your work.

This will be the first time i have written to you, though i've read your stories for about a year now. And i enjoy them immensely. I have no idea why i am writing now, but i just had an impulse to, and i usually follow the small impulses.
Well, i like what you've done to your site. I liked it before, but i always like new stuff. A change from the old. Hmm... i think the translation for "The Forcep's Mark" was very well done. The translator knew well enough the archaic terms and usage in English and the effect was very impressive. It's one of my favorites as well, of all your stories.
I really have nothing to say. This is all chit chat. I wish all of your stories are transalted. Lastly, i hope i haven't offended you in any way. People say that i have no tact, but i certainly don't mean to be irritating.
