GORDON PRESCOTT BLITZ
From a young child, Gordon was called a sissy, girlie, fag, queer, and homo. Getting towel whipped, stomach punched and spit on were part of his world. Being bullied like this made him go into a nice, staid, stable career in accounting. He never found his writer’s voice until he retired in 2017 after forty years of debits and credits and became a passionate writing machine. . His 2021 best-selling novella “Shipped Off” was published as part of the Running Wild Press Novella Anthology Volume 4, Book 1. In 2022 his second novel, "Fathers and Other Strangers" was published. Audiobooks are available for both novels. In February 2023, his novel "Stretched Love" was published by Tofu Ink Arts Press. Ten of his autobiographical stories are available on the Queer Slam Podcast Episode 21, called “Just Gordon." His play "Reflections" was performed and one of the winners at the Region 8 Kennedy Center American College Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tofu Ink Arts Press is proud to announce the publication of Stretched Love. The novel plunges us into the passionate marriage of a couple in their thirties, Warren and Rebecca and
her troubled younger gay brother, Paul. The hold that these
three characters have on each other takes on mythic
proportions when one of them faces serious illness.
The novel does not hold back from the savagery of disease
and death. The relationships take an unexpected turn that
doesn't always make sense. Ultimately the reader will find that love in all of its forms can be stretched, even beyond the grave.
Available as a paperback and kindle on Amazon and other
book stores and web-sites.

The Shortish Project is excited to share Gordon Blitz's latest work Harmoninc Dissonance.
Harmonic Dissonance is about two married couples-(straight) Elle and Patrick and (gay) Corey and Noah. Patrick and Noah have dementia and are at the same Memory Care facility. During their stay, Patrick and Noah form a sexual relationship even though Patrick is straight. Both no longer recognize their spouses. The novel explores the impact on Elle and Corey as they confront the impact of Alzheimer’s on their marriages; the way their roles have changed. Elle and Corey are forced to form a bond with each other—as a coping mechanism. Elle ponders whether her husband has been a closeted gay man during their marriage. Corey and Noah’s adopted son is missing in Afghanistan, making Corey deal with another potential loss in his life without the support of his husband, Noah. Music is used as a backdrop because the auditory system of the brain is fully functional at 16 weeks. We appreciate and understand music before anything else. With dementia, music is the last brain function to die. In other words, first in and last out.
Available as a paperback and ebook.
