Publisher's Summary

Susie Bright, founder of Best American Erotica, presents a classic, taboo-breaking collection of men’s erotic fiction - featuring the most unrepentant gay literary heroes of our generation. Legendary writers like John Preston, Samuel Delany, Steven Saylor/Aaron Travis, Lars Eighner, Dennis Cooper - who can imagine men’s intimate and transgressive lives without them?

The editor’s closing chapter gives a surprising appraisal of how these remarkable authors came to be published - and who found themselves under attack when their stories hit too close to home. This is a sizzling, brilliant, and historic group of stories you’ll never forget.

Terrible

Stereotypes that went beyond offensive. Gay erotica as violent, shock value type tales with ridiculous situations. For example, a guy who contracts a virus that starts to turn him straight (in the stupidest stereotypy way) who then tries to force his ex lover while very drunk in order to make him catch the virus too. All to be saved by the best queen friend, jumping in at the last moment.

Don't waste your credits.

Missing the 2nd Half of the Best Story

I'm not the only reader who thinks that "Blue Light" by Aaron Travis might be the best gay sub/dom erotic story ever written; several well known critics of the genre have said so. The inclusion of that story was the reason I chose to listen to this audiobook. It was the last story in the collection, so I patiently waded through the other stories to get to "Blue Light". However, just as things are about to get interesting (and intense), the story cuts off and suddenly I'm listening to the very unwelcome voice of Susie Bright telling me what a wonderful job she did in selecting these stories. If the Audible Inc. was going to screw up, I really wish it had been on any other story in this collection.

Ok

I read these sorts of erotic candies shortly after having read a good, thick novel. I guess they represent my dessert. This particular one was,at times, good enough as a main course.

Disgusting

I don’t think I have ever been disgusted by a book before I’m only three stories I. Hand had to stop. This entire book is one big rape fantasy. It’s offensive and triggering.

Too Painful to Continue

I could only make it through the first three stories before giving up. just found them too awful to continue any further.

Horrible, Not Sexy, Negative

Don't waste your time with this title. It is not sexy and the stories are ridiculous and negative.
