My novel The Seventh Circle has been out now several months and has attracted high praise. It is the story of the forgotten victims of the Holocaust, the men who wore the pink triangle, Europe's gay men. A university student is accused of violating Paragraph 175, which makes sexual relations between men illegal. He is called up by the Gestapo and sent to a concentration camp, where surrounded by death, he experiences torture, starvation, and humiliation at the hands of his sadistic captors. It is a story of love, betrayal, man's inhumanity to man, and the will to survive. Critics have praised its "hauntingly beautiful prose," and called it "brilliant, emotionally charged, cinematic, powerful," and "a must read." It is available on Amazon, Kindle, most ebooks, as well as most familiar retailers in books. With the growing division and hate around the world today, perhaps it is a good time to visit a past where similar things led to genocide and destruction.
