Devil's Chew Toy by Rob Osler

Rob's Website:

Rob Osler’s debut novel, Devil’s Chew Toy, features a gay and lesbian amateur sleuth in a hilariously light-hearted mystery adventure set in present-day Seattle. His short story, Analogue, published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, won the Mystery Writers of America Robert L Fish Award as part of the 2022 Annual Edgar Awards. Rob’s second short story, also to be published in Ellery Queen in 2023 features a cross-dressing amateur sleuth, named Perry Winkle. Rob lives in California with his long-time partner and a tall gray cat.

Brad's Website:

Support Requeered Tales  re-publishing award-winning, post-Stonewall gay and lesbian fiction — with a focus on mystery, literary and horror/sci-fi genres.

Kindly give to The Trevor Project, a much-needed charity focusing not only suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth, but also helps to get answers and information to support them and connect with an international community of LGBTQ youth aged 13 - 24.
