"Every week, five friends meet in the backroom of a comic book store to fight demons and monsters, real and imagined, and together they learn they are far stronger than they knew. Dungeons and Dragons meets Tales of the City in The Cleveland Heights LBGT Sci-fi and Fantasy Roleplaying Club, a comic literary novel about gay nerds. On Thursday nights, the players assemble in the back of Readmore Comix and Games. Celeste is the dungeon master, Valerie, who works at the store, was roped in by default, Mooneyham, the banker, likes to argue, and Ben, sensitive, unemployed, and living at home, is still recovering from an unrequited love. In the real world they go about their days falling in love, coming out at work, and dealing with their family lives all with varying degrees of success. But in the world of their fantasy game, they are heroes and wizards fighting to stop an evil cult from waking a sleeping god. But then a sexy new guy, Albert, joins the club, Ben's character is killed, and Mooneyham's boyfriend is accosted on the street. The connections and parallels between the real world and the fantasy one become stronger and more important than ever as Ben struggles to bring his character back to life and win Albert's affection, and the group unites to organize a protest at a neighborhood bar. And all the while the slighted and competing vampire roleplaying club, working secretly in the shadows, begins to make its move"-- Provided by publisher.
