You’re a single Japanese father named Yaichi, who spends most of time at home raising his rambunctious but innocent daughter Kana. One day, a large foreigner from Canada named Mike Flanagan arrived at their doorstep and reveals himself to be Kana’s uncle. Not only that, but the husband of Yaichi’s estranged (and sadly deceased) twin brother Ryouji. Illustrated and written by Genoroh Tagame, this is the plot of “My Brother’s Husband”.

To conclude LGBT Pride Month, I’m going to review a book I’ve actually ben wanting to talk about on Reader’s Boulevard for a while. It’s actually the first Kyell Gold novel and first furry fiction I’ve read, and it really influenced me as a writer and as a member of the fandom. This book would lead me to be writing anthropomorphic animals in my written works, and I am proud to talk about Kyell Gold’s first installment into his collection of novels, short stories, and novellas set in his fictional Forrester Universe, “Waterways”.
