Best Gay Erotica Series

Best Gay Erotica 2009

The bestselling gay erotica series in America! Presenting the hottest, most provocative gay erotica of the year...

Selected by master of gay erotica James Lear (The Back Passage, The Secret Tunnel), the stories in Best Gay Erotica 2009 explore all the sweat and grit of man-on-man encounters, from anonymous trysts to loving, lingering seductions. Two hunk lovers acts out their own version of Lord of the Rings. A sexy M.D. gives new meaning to "playing doctor" when a stud with a perfect physique comes in for a checkup. A handsome married roofer goes on the down low thanks to a persisten male neighbor. While the settings and situations may vary, these sizzling tales of men in heat by top talens in the field share the ability to turn you on.

2009 Lambda Literary Award Winner for Gay Erotica.

RICHARD LABONTÉ lives some of the time in a wee Perth, Ontario apartment, and some of the time in a sprawling 10-bedroom farmhouse on 200 acres of land near Calabogie, Ontario. From 1979 to 2000, he helped found and then managed A Different Light Bookstores in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. He has edited the Best Gay Erotica series since 1996; reviews 100 books a year for Q Syndicate, which distributes his fortnightly column “Book Marks”; writes the newsletter Books to Watch Out For/Gay Men's Edition; and writes book reviews for Publishers Weekly.

JAMES LEAR is the nom-de-porn of noted writer and BBC journalist Rupert Smith. His previous novels include I Must Confess, The Back Passage, Hot Valley and The Palace of Varieties. He currently resides in London.
