Best Gay Erotica Series
Best Gay Erotica 2011
"Reading the stories in Best Gay Erotica 2011 will get you hot; that's their claim on you," promises guest judge Kevin Killian. In this year's edition of the bestselling erotica series, a dreamy lacrosse player plays rough with a skinny skater in Wolfsham's "Attackman." The undead hero of Jeff Mann's uncanny "Saving Tobias" targets a handsome, homophobic state senator. Dreams of all kinds, mostly erotic, flit through Shane Allison's poetic and powerful "I Dreamt." A straight high school jock returns humbly, eight years later, to a once-scorned gay boy in johnny Murdoc's "Bodies In Motion."
With stories by Shane Allison, Jeff Mann, Eric Karl Anderson, Rob Wolfsham, Thomas Rees, Johnny Murdoc, Shaun Levin, Boris Pintar, Tony Pike, Dominic Santi, Natty Soltesz, Simon Sheppard, Jonathan Asche, Martin Delacroix, Daniel Allen Cox, and James Early Hardy.
