Unlike their namesakes in the wild, the bears in this collection are decidedly sexier. Assembled by noted editor Richard Labonte, these tales will take listeners on a tantalizing tour of a gay subculture that's sweet and raunchy - and sometimes both at once. Written by the most popular authors in the field of queer male erotica, these stories showcase bears and bear-lovers exulting in the pleasures of scruffy beards, hairy chests, burly bodies, and belly-to-belly sex unfettered by social constrictions.
In Fit for the Pulpit, a host of preachers dispense comfort and counsel to their brothers in the trenches, men who often work in ministerial isolation as they seek to build up the body of Christ. Chris McCurley, the editor of this volume, has assembled ten different writers to cover a wide swath of material. In eleven chapters, McCurley and his colleagues manage to cover many of the areas wherein preachers need continual encouragement.
Jeff Garcia brings the laughs when he talks about racial issues and Los Angeles idiosyncrasies. Then, Neal Brennan takes the mic and gets tough on gangsters and romance. Next, Jay Davis talks about homoerotic experiences at the gym and relationships based on text messaging.
