Golden Brothers by STS
Golden Brothers is the debut novel of musician, ‘zine writer (“Way Down Low,” “The Gay Hotel,” “Nightmare Girl”) and Queercore activist STS. It’s a beautiful, utterly strange tale, a “gay alien sci fi pornographic love story,” says sts. Eileen Myles says “Golden Brothers is made out of the strange uncommon beauty that fills the empty spaces outside of capitalism. Scenes change swiftly as music. Life and death are moments.”
Golden Brothers is the first book in Publication Studio’s new Fellow Travelers series which extends the pioneering work of Paris-based Olympia Press’s Traveller’s Companion series of the 1950s and ’60s, It is co-published with Gay Bird Press.
