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.

RICHARD LABONTÉ lives on small, friendly Bowen Island, off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. One of the founders of A Different Light Bookstore, he has edited the Best Gay Erotica series since 1996. He reviews 100 books a year for Q Syndicate, which distributes "Book Marks," his fortnightly column; writes the "Books to Watch Out For/Gay Men's Edition" newsletter; and writes book reviews for Publishers Weekly. Husband Asa and canines Percy and Zak are his constant companions.

Kevin Killian, US poet, novelist, critic and playwright, has written a book of poetry, Argento Series (2001), two novels, Shy (1989) and Arctic Summer (1997), a book of memoirs, Bedrooms Have Windows (1989), and a book of stories, Little Men (1996) that won the PEN Oakland award for fiction. Killian’s work has been widely anthologized and has appeared in, among others, Best American Poetry 1988 (ed. John Ashbery), and Discontents (ed. Dennis Cooper).

He has written on the Bay Area art scene for Artforum, Artweek, Framework, etc., etc. and, though not a natural “sub,” has labored mightily in video and theater work for Abigail Child, Cecilia Dougherty, Kota Ezawa, Carla Harryman, Sue Marcoux, Raymond Pettibon, Camille Roy, Leslie Scalapino, Sarah Schulman, Leslie Singer, Michael Turner, Laurie Weeks et al. For the San Francisco Poets Theater, Killian has written thirty plays, including Stone Marmalade (1996, with Leslie Scalapino), The American Objectivists (2001, with Brian Kim Stefans), and Often (also 2001, with Barbara Guest).

He is one of the original members of the notorious San Francisco based “New Narrative” group, and helped to organize the original “Out Write” conferences of queer writing here in San Francisco, as well as the 1996 “Queer Beats” conference.
