John Crowley's first novel, The Deep, features (in part) a fantasy version of the story of Edward II and his Wars as seen by a strangely sexless visitor from outside the world. Chris Hunt's novel, Gaveston, published by the Gay Men's Press in 1992, was a novel based on Edward's life, in particular his relationship with Piers Gaveston, though also his subsequent relationships.
