Northstar is always interesting. You can always immediately tell an authors stance on the whole "gay issue" by how he's written. And I think he only died once.

That must be fewer deaths than average!

It is also an unabashedly queer book, addressing many of the queer subtexts of those myths. In addition to being a novelist/short-storywriter, Duncan is also a blogger who address everything from literature to music to politics in an entertaining, occasionally outrageous way. As you can see below, Duncan is a verbose, charming and delightfully profane subject to interview.

I think Whedon did a terrible job with LGBT stuff. Willow is ostensibly straight until she suddenly becomes a lipstick lesbian, which seems to be all Whedon can envision. In fact, female homosexuality is approached far, far more openly than male homosexuality, but then I guess that was the time. Back in the 90s you couldn't swing a rainbow flag without hitting a television lesbian, but TV gay men were all hiding or something.
