Gay/lesbian book recommendations please.

Can we start a thread for gay/lesbian recommendations?

Here would be a few of mine:
All the books of "The Silurian" series (10 books so far) by: L.A. Wilson - length; 10 long books so far; gay; e-book - smashwords
"Marking Time" by C.J. Anthony; 43,800 words; gay; e-book - smashwords

Obviously I don't have many, which is the reason I am asking for additional recommendations.

Two requests:
1. Please state the approximate length of the book you're recommending
2. Please state whether each is gay or lesbian.
3. Please state if it is e-book, print book or both and where available.

Re: Gay/lesbian book recommendations please.

Do you mean works of fiction with LGBT themes or do you mean nonfiction books on LGBT issues?

Re: Gay/lesbian book recommendations please.

Do you want explicitly gay, or do you accept coded works like Interview with a Vampire?

I mean fictional works - longer rather than shorter, interesting, not just sex, sex, sex but good writing, good thinking, makes you think and with a real story line.

Not sure what "coded works" means Nick Danger, so I'll say explicitly gay.

I think you might enjoy Diana Gabaldon's series of Lord John books.

One of the best books I read this year was The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth. I loved it so much, I interviewed the author. Here's a link, if you're curious.

Kamikaze Girls by Novala Takemoto - It's like the Outsiders, but with lesbians.

You might be interested in the books of Poppy Z. Brite... Lost Souls, Drawing Blood, Exquisite Corpse, Liquor, Prime, and Soul Kitchen. The first three are horror novels, and the latter three are mainstream "foodie" novels. Pretty much all of the male characters in his (her?) novels are gay.
