Somebody certainly should, but I suppose it would need to be reeking of bondage and power-play to mirror the original. I know enough about those things to write and edit them, and I've done some such stories when there was another aspect of interest involved, but I'm getting exceedingly tired of the general theme. Must be old age.

Didn't somebody already do a 50 Shades of Gay? or maybe I imagined it.

Hmm, maybe if we worked in a fantasy aspect with the rainbow thing--and why not?--Steve would go for it. Except that the whole play-on-Gray thing for titles is getting so hackneyed.

Maybe you should pitch it, Fran.

But NOT with 50 stories!

To tell the truth, I'd really like to do a specfic anthology for Lethe, but anthologies don't sell anywhere near as well as novels. I'm in the market for theme suggestions, though. My next Cleis antho (Me and My Boi) probably won't come out until 2015, which means I won't have a 2014 book at all. I know, I know, I should try for a novel, but that would probably take me more than a year. Maybe much more. It does seem as though the only way to get attention from lesfic readers is through novel-length work.

What about a collection of novellas/novelettes? Say, 4 stories at 30K each, at least one or two from novelists with an existing fan base. Can you write to that length, Sacch?
