Marion Husband’s ‘The Boy I Love’ Trilogy gets fantastic reviews.

Marion Husband’s The Boy I Love Trilogy, called the “pinnacle of gay historical fiction” by Goodreads reviewer Erastes has recently had some great reviews from the Historical Novel Society.

Book one, The Boy I Love was reviewed by Ann Northfield who said the book “is character- and idea-driven rather than being action-packed, and the characters are particularly vivid and real. Although perhaps not the most loveable or nicest of people, they certainly remain in the mind after the book is closed as being fully fleshed and human.

Book two, All the Beauty of the Sun was reviewed by Barbara Goldie. Barbara said “The story is well researched and has lots of detail and emotion. It moves on at a cracking pace and keeps the reader’s interest so much that it could easily be read in one or two sessions.”

Book three Paper Moon was reviewed by Sally Zigmond who said “the writing is intelligent, and the emotions heartfelt”.

Just One Damned Thing After Another

Just One Damned Thing After Another – debut novel with over 400 5 star Amazon reviews!

“History is just one damned thing after another” – Arnold Toynbee

Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary’s, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don’t do ‘time-travel’ – they ‘investigate major historical events in contemporary time’. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power – especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet.

Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary’s Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document – to try and find the answers to many of History’s unanswered questions…and not to die in the process.

But one wrong move and History will fight back – to the death. And, as they soon discover – it’s not just History they’re fighting.

Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake …
