"I'm not being mysterious on purpose," Evers said apologetically. "It's just, it's a somewhat...special collection."

The collection of Victorian photographs that Russell Evers is offering sounds like a major find. Arriving at his house to assess the donation, Allan del Mar finds a cozy welcome, an unexpected rapport—and, among the solemn couples and amateur theatricals,

This is the second story I've read by this author, and it proved to me that the first, Programming, was not just a fluke. I am on my way to Amazon now to buy everything else of M. Arbon's I can find. ...more

Charming M/M short story about an afternoon in the life of Allan del Mar, a museum dude who arrives at the private home of Russell Evers to evaluate a collection of historical photographs for possible donation. The initial attraction between the two becomes slightly more awkward when Allan finds some... very interesting subject matter, as the author puts it, within the collection.

This was a charming short and so well done. The writing is excellent. It's very short, but it's rich and full and felt complete. I enjoyed the sunny, upbeat, quiet tone. Thanks to my friend Teal for recommending this author. ...more

3.5* Read the s2b2 version.

Interesting little short. Strong impression of the characters although with the length of the story we don't get to know them that well. The story had a timeless sense about that mention of modern trappings felt out of place. Surprisingly sexy antics for two with such civilised manners, with historical teases thrown in.

4.5 rounded up. Scholarly excitement leads to other kinds of excitement. Admirably spare description that gives life to a story about static visual things.
