About the Series: 'Post Gender' fiction
Love and courage should outrank hatred and domination, but even fiction measures how to label a genre. "POST GENDER" is to say that it does not matter who you love or who possesses heroism. If two women love one another, or two men, it shouldn't matter. The stories featuring a soldier-and-athlete and a webcam stripper are not defined by gender. One is the definition of courage and determination. The other is the flower of youth and beauty. To take the two central romantic characters and reduce the story by "lesbian" or "gay" stories doesn't fit what these novels attempt to do, which is to coin a new phrase, of "POST GENDER." Likely other writers are framing characters to not be thus measured, but there does not appear to be any other use of the phrase. If these stories do nothing further than to expand the concept of writing so that characters are measured not by gender, but by the heart and mind, the effort is worth years as an obscure novelist.
