1 "The Soul in the Cellular" - Bravo, bravo! : ) I really enjoyed these stories. It does make me think that you may not be in favor of a woman's choice, but that's a personal thing. :-)

P.P.W.

1 Hi Andrej,

Wow! "The Soul in the Cellular" arguably the most interesting and unique story I've encountered on Nifty in a very long time. I'm only up to chapter 13, but I am looking forward with great anticipation the remaining chapters.

I was shocked and amused by the "soul's" explanation of genetic homosexuality. Shocked, because it was the first time I heard someone else express the same idea I have held for many years. He didn't frame it in the same way I like to, but I have always believed that sexuality is on a bell curve and that the majority of people are bisexual by nature. It's only at the two ends of the bell curve where you find the most strident anti-gay people and the most unabashed gay people; those in the middle lean to one side or another by force of social etiquette and restrictions.

It seems odd this story was written in 1995, like a blast from the past. Thanks!!!

Peter P.

1 "The Soul in the Cellular" - You were right to describe the life of the cavemen. Allow me to add.

The presence in the population of subjects with various functions necessary for the survival of the population. Carefully consider the lifestyle of a caveman: Lack of family, cannibalism, multi-day hunting men's expeditions, the transition of boys at the age of ten in the caves to the male half to prevent incest, the alpha guards by the males of their harem.

Not only the genes of the parents are inherited, but also the percentage in the population of subjects with specialization necessary for the survival of the population. These facts determine the need for gays and boylovers. The cave way of life lasted hundreds of thousands of years and the specialization of the subjects of the population, fixed in the genome, has survived to the present.

1 Hi Andrej,

I have to confess that I already am a big fan of your work. "the soul in the cellular" is one of my favorite stories. I have liked a lot of them since then but none as much as that one :)

I came to your site today after maybe a year's absence since I noticed that you had posted a new story on Nifty.

I think I first went to your website in late nineties. It was my first exposure to relationship oriented "gay" stories. Before that all the stories I had read revolved around sex :). It was a welcome change and something I am really thankful for.

I sometimes wonder that I should start studying Italian just so that I may read these stories in their original language. A lot of the beauty of prose is lost in translation.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that even though I have never attempted to contact you before I am a fan and I believe there are countless others like me.

1 Dear Andrej

Sometimes reading your stories are like visiting other countries and cultures, or like stepping back in time. One story that I particularly enjoyed was "Priest Forever". I grew up Catholic and so relate very much to what the characters in that story experienced. I think it's one of the things I like about your stories - the variety: of characters, cultures, countries, venues, interests, beliefs.

I am going to print out "Dear Eugenio" now, so that I can start reading it tonight. I have not yet read "Soul in the Cellular" and maybe one or two others of your English translations, but I have read every other one.

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,
Eddy

1 Andrej-

I have enjoyed all of the stories you have written that are posted to Nifty Archives. And have also visited your site. Tonite, I just finished The Soul In The Cellular. It is FANTASTIC!!
I wish that I could read Italian, [and speak it for that matter!;-)] so that I could also read your wonderful stories, as you originally wrote them! They are just marvelous! The days are not long enough to allow all the time I'd like to devote to reading the rest of your works!!

Thank you for sharing them!

1 Dear Andrej,

Such a strange name for an Italian...

3/19/99: New stories on Nifty and ASSGM always make me visit your WEB site as I know that I can get a better copy, easier from the downloads. While I'm there I scan for anything else available and I found "The Odd Couple". Wonderful, wonderful. But not done! Please put it on the top of your list to finish. I even tried to read the Italian, totally unsuccessfully.

3/20/99 I spent most of today -- which was a beautiful day - indoors glued to the tube. My reward was "The Puppets Theatre" the most complex, perverse and charming tale of yours I have read to date. I admit I did get an hour and a half in the sun by the pool after Ugo (part 3) because I was very disturbed. It didn't seem like one of your stories. Of all the characters I still feel bad only for Ugo so the ending was bittersweet.

I have the "Soul in the Cellular" and the "Kea Tribe" to read but I must digest "Puppets Theatre" first. I'm not sure I won't have bad dreams. I'm absolutely sure I'm glad that I read it. That's the "perverse" part of the story.

Once again, thanks for the pleasure. Were these stories ever published in Italian? They should have been.

Bob
