Polyamory novels

Posted by Laird. Comments Off on Polyamory novels.

Curious how Fallen Lake fits into the polyamory literature, I compiled this list. Links take you to the best independent commentary I could find on these books from a polyamory perspective. In some cases, all I could find was an Amazon page.

Making this list led me to a couple of observations. First, most of the polyamory erotica appears to be written by women.

Second, most of these books fall into the realm of science fiction or fantasy. In contrast to authors of gay fiction, people who write about polyamory seem to have trouble imagining it in the world in which we live now. I welcome any corrections or additions to this list.
