Praise for Not So Good a Gay Man

“Vivid and detailed, Robinson’s story is an engaging recollection of the golden age of pulp fiction interwoven with the story of a man’s successful struggle to accept himself. Fascinating reading, especially for fans of 20th-century science fiction.” ―Kirkus

“[Robinson’s] closely observed view of gay life and culture, especially in his home city of San Francisco, is insightful and often moving.” ―Booklist
