MAS-Zine. Male/male romance with dark settings. Mainly speculative fiction. Published in print and as a downloadable e-zine, with links to the online writings of its contributors.

suspect thoughts: a journal of subversive writing and Velvet Mafia. These are sister e-zines; one publishes queer fiction, while the other publishes gay male fiction.

The November 2004 issue of Velvet Mafia featured "ghost stories, thrillers, or creepy sci-fi."
