For Readers: When the Protagonist Is Not a Twink

older gay men

Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer Hank T. Cannon:

Maybe it’s because I’m in my 40’s, but I’ve gotten a little (and I do mean a little, because it will pass) tired of reading about teenagers and twenty-somethings.

I’ve recently discovered an urge to find novels involving older protagonists.

So does the age of the protagonist matter to you? How does it affect your expectations?

  1. I am not that keen on new romance for really really really old people and sometimes teenagers get on my nerves. I enjoy a decent story involving characters with a decent amount of life experience. Whether the main characters sit in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties etc or even if one is of one generation and the other of a different one, I enjoy a story where the character has… character. I do expect characters to have some depth regardless of the age.
