"The Gay Icon Classics Of The World" Set To Become A Global Gay Best Seller

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 28, 2011) - It has been over 15 years in the making but Icon Empire Press is set for a limited release of "The Gay Icon Classics Of The World"(ISBN 978-0-9869297-5-5) by Robert Joseph Greene.

The collection of short stories is a wonderful assortment of fables from around the world. The creation of these stories were based upon some cultural awareness of gay men in history and, in particular, cultures where gay life is considered taboo.

The idea for the book came about while Author Robert Greene was taking summer courses at UCLA, He had met a fellow student from the Ivory Coast (Africa). The author asked her if she had heard of anything about gay life in her culture. She replied that she once heard of an ancient tribal story about two teenage boys who were banished from a village for kissing each other in public. The story was passed down to her by her grandmother but she didn't remember the details. It was from this piece of information that he was able to write the story of "The Soiled Loin Cloth".

The book will have an initial print release via Amazon.com but is available worldwide as an e-book.

"I really had to research each culture or review historical facts about gay men to feel comfortable in creating these stories," says Author Robert Greene. Icon Empire Press has made the ebook version available through Apple iTunes, Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, and Chapters/Indigo (Canada).

Icon Empire Press is a publisher of literary works that set out to fulfill the understanding of the human spirit.
