Lethe Press, Day 22 Giveaway: Wingmen by Ensan Case
This World War II novel, with overtones of From Here to Eternity, was a precursor to the gay romance genre. Jack Hardigan’s Hellcat fighter squadron blew the Japanese Zekes out of the blazing Pacific skies. But a more subtle kind of hell was brewing in his feelings for rookie pilot Fred Trusteau. While a beautiful widow pursues Jack, and another pilot becomes suspicious of Jack and Fred’s close friendship, the two heroes cut a fiery swath through the skies from Wake Island to Tarawa to Truk, there to keep a fateful rendezvous with love and death in the blood-clouded waters of the Pacific.
This is another rescue effort. Actually, the book has a long history as it was first published in the 1970s and then faded into obscurity, was rescued by Cheyenne Press, and now it was again rescued by Lethe. It remains one of the earliest examples of gay romance. And it remains a wonderful read.
We have two copies of Wingmen to give away. You may choose print or digital editions.
