    Outer Voices Inner Lives
    A Collection of LGBTQ Writers over 50

    Edited by Mark McNease and Stephen Dolainski
    Foreword by Patricia Nell Warren

    I am not a writer or a literary critic, but I am over 50 (in fact I am 70) and an avid reader, so I feel safe in recommending Outer Voices Inner Lives. From the tender- sweet and lovely story of Gussie (78 years old) and Mackie (the cat) in her tiny but perfect house between the rail line and the street in The Tracks, to the oddity of nineteen-year-old Charlie and his drugged out friends and their chance encounter with something out of this world in Stop the Car by co-editor Mark McNease, this collection of stories by LGBTQ writers over 50 is to be savored. Kudos to co-editor Stephen Dolainski and McNease for giving us quality and variety. Every LGBTQ bookshelf should include this volume. I will look forward to Volume II.

    I love this sight, it provides me with so much insight, stories, news, and at the same time, I too one day will write my own stories to share. I don’t have to worry about being sexy, a certain height, income, or job criteria. Just me, doing what I love best…sharing stories, and reading stories of life, love, politics, rights, family, and most of all, issues of growing older each and every day…
