Editor Steve Berman (Charmed Lives, So Fey, Wilde Stories
) has selected twenty stories--some moving essays, some splendid works of fiction--from the prior year that best feature the lives, loves and losses of gay men. With tales by fresh voices and established writers, Best Gay Stories
offers readers indiscretions, poignant trysts, and reminiscences that are as evocative as they are imaginative.
The contributors to this year's volume are: M. S. Allen, Holly Black, Richard Bowes, Tom Cardamone, Jameson Currier, Peter Dube, Erastes, Greg Herren, James Klise, David Levithan, Raymond Luczak, Joseph Manera, Jeff Mann, Billy Merrell, Ethan Mordden, Paul Reidinger, Charles Rice-Gonzalez, Paul Russell, Aaron Shurin, and Robert Warwick.
