1 hi there! how's it going? hope everythin's great you!

I read ""Manush", and what i liked is its characters and the story about the tribes. is this really true? i mean all about the gypsy's and everything? i don't know anything about this things and it amazes me that there are stories about them. i like how you portray each of the characters in the story.

i just would like to ask on the many stories you have written, do you have anything about "gay rape" or "gay soldiers" or "gay police"? i would really love to read something about these topics.

more power to you and im looking forward in exchanging correspondence to you from time to time.

thank you and happy holidays!!!!
Manny

1 Hi Andej,

Manush is a great story. Thanks. The world of Romani and Sinti is new to me and very distant. Therefore I have a lot of trouble to recall the Romani words you are using. Despite this I love the story.

Cheers

1 I was reading Manush on the nifty network which then obviously prompted me to access your actual website.

I think I was amazed at Manush, I had never really read anything like it before; a gypsy Romany who creates a tribe of homosexuals, the traveling caravans, the trip to see the 'BARO MAMA' was really clever, the way she manuevered events... there were definitely.

I think the sex scenes lacked a little luster after a few chapters in.

One of the things I would have suggested is that in introducing the characters, you should give an overall physical description and then a trademarc feature taht you continually reiterate. After awhile I was having a hard time remembering who was who and who came from where and under what circumstances?

I also go to a point where I wanted them to vote against having someone join [i know you alluded to this with the denial of the sadist] but it was just a simple blip in the story which I would have liked to be developed more.

Also, there seemed to be a lack of intimacy with the characters interation. Later on, when Jojo and Odehij fell in love, I thought that was a nice touch but we [the readers] missed that whole experience, which could have been really exciting.

Further though, I wanted to see how they were connecting, intimately. why did Zanko like to bed with Marko & Mateo? Was it because they were beautiful. [at some point one of them pointed out that Marko was the most beautiful of the lot] and its little commentaries like these that really flesh out the characters.

It helped to know that Zanko was the most masculine or macho? It was nice to read taht Odehij had long straight hair. But for many of them, in my head they are simpy mannequins... almost faceless.

All of this to say I've just spent the last few hours thoroughly enjoying the storyline. The events were exciting, and well tempered with what I could picture to be real situaitons, experiences.

Overall, the story is simply amazing!!

I just finished the final chapter ::gets up applauds::

An astounding story! I was happy Zanko finally married [even tho i would have liked to know more about Osman] but i understand now, what you were trying to do by not focusing so much on each member of the tribe.

Well done!

1 My Dear Andrei

I have been reading your story Manush and I must admit it is one of the best I have read for ages, it is full of understanding, love and the right amount of homoerotic.

Once again thank you for writing such interesting and beautiful stories.

Hugs

Dave

1 Andrej,

I just found your stories of Manush a few days ago. I have since read all of them and found them very well done. I really liked your writing a lot. As I read your stories, I had questions come to my mind. You have used the names of various gypsy tribes and groups, and the names of many places, small towns I have never heard of. Because, by using these names, you made the story seem very real. My question is, is everything made up? I mean did you make up all the names of the gypsy groups, or tribes, and the places they traveled to and through. You were able to make it seem like a real world that you were very familiar with. Do you have experience in this world you created, I mean have you actually lived within the gypsy world, or is everything complete fiction. Was this story first written in another language, say Italian, then translated into English? I realize from your comment, at the bottom of the story, that it must have been translated from something else.

The creation of the culture you described was most complete, and I want to thank you for sharing your story of Manush. I realize I have not said anything about the sexual part. You did an excellent job of describing sexual activities, in great detail, among your characters. Everything was done in a sexually sensitive way. Congratulations!

Sincerely,

John

1 Hello...just finished reading Manush, and I wanted to tell you just how very much I enjoyed it. The sex was fun, but much more importantly, I learned a great deal about the Romany... and any new information like that is what really makes my day.

Thanks for a great read!

cheers!

1 hello

I'm reading "manush the saga of the gypsy boy and his lover. I like, Andrej. I am more than 60 years old. I live in NY, but have been to Italy a few times in the past years. I am a retired teacher, married. I have studied the Italian language for a while. When I was in Rome, I saw some gypsies at the railroad station. All the guidebooks said to be afraid of them....that they would swarm close to you and unbuckle your wristwatch. It is good to read about the gypsies of Italy from a different point of view.

1 Manush is one of the most interesting stories I have read in a long time. I look forward to reading more about the Romany and the Gadje.

I have only seen one or two Romany in my life as they don't appear to be so common in America, but when I was a boy there were some every spring who came through the region of America where I grew up. I think they had to be very careful in my area because they never lingered and did not camp for more than a night in one place.

Thank you for this story.

Thank you
