Best Gay Romance 2008
The most seductive stories of love between men
In Best Gay Romance 2008, editor Richard Labonté shows that however romance happens, however long love lasts—a heartbeat or a lifetime—erotic love between men is a wondrous thing. In "Viva Las Vegas," the narrator casts off his boy-next-door image and, dancing down the grand staircase at Caesar's Palace into the arms of a handsome stranger, finally becomes the romantic leading man he always knew he was. In the beautiful, nostalgic "Endless Against Amber," a man recalls a long-ago summer love, before adult life got in the way, "we were just two boys in a beat-up old car like so many others, cruising the neighborhood for a laugh, only one thing on our minds...."
RICHARD LABONTÉ has edited the Best Gay Erotica series since 1997. The newest anthology he edited, Where the Boys Are, will be released in late 2007. He writes the review column "Book Marks," for Q Syndicate, and edits the Gay Men's Edition of Books to Watch Out For. He lives in British Columbia, Canada.
