Cimorene Ross


I am a retired cataloguer, a retired Media and Fantasy fan from the days of classic Star Trek onwards, a mostly retired American Civil War re-enactor, and current minder of two Russian Blue ladies (also retired!).

I have a long time interest in history, mostly ancient and classical but venture into the realms of the medieval world except for the unnecessary Tudors. Since retiring I have taken up patchwork, gardening and village activities, being well known for being unable to resist buying perennials!

It is 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act 1967 decriminalised private homosexual acts between men over 21 in England and Wales - a partial victory, but also a deeply significant one. This free anthology of extracts from Manifold Press titles illustrates in a modest way the changes experienced by gay men over the centuries in Britain, and how these may have affected individuals.

Lucius Valerius Carus isn’t impulsive; when he buys a slave at a market it’s because he feels sorry for a man who has been maltreated. However he’s taken on more than he bargained for with Keret - intelligent, educated, and stronger than he looks. Roman society wouldn’t think twice about Lucius using Keret for his sexual pleasure - but it would be horrified to know he's gradually falling in love.
