"Everything happens for a reason"
What an era it was, racks of magazines with hot guys on the glossy cover and hotter ones inside. Tucked in among the slick photos were stories, two or three to an issue, of fiction by a host of writers, including Dale Chase who spent eight lively years writing about sex with mechanics, bikers, professors, politicians, and a host of others; sex in traffic school, supply rooms, and onstage at the theater; and sex in just about every venue you can imagine and a few you can't.
"Sexy & Original Classic Erotica Short Stories."
The imagination of William Holden is one that values sweat and sperm and blood. And shadows to hide the rivulets of these fluids as they descend and drip from the naked flesh of men. These tales of homoerotic horror haunt a listener long after they are over. Stories of a lecherous carnival barker who deals in breath and souls, a town where Halloween has become more than playful tricks and sweet treats, the promise of desire at the razor's edge of life and death.
A simple blackmail case goes south when Chanse finds the murdered body of his muscle-boy client in what appears to be a hate crime. But neither Chanse nor the police are convinced it was a hate crime, despite the frenzy being whipped up in the city by a charismatic-but-attention-seeking gay rights activist. The trail leads to a call boy ring, blackmail of wealthy uptown closet cases, and it's not long before Chanse's investigation has put not only his life at risk, but that of everyone he cares about!
"Good story, poor production"
Whistling has long been used to entertain and to communicate. The short stories of Gregg Shapiro also entertain and convey his skilled recollections of the past. The gay men found in this audiobook are sardonic: they drink, they indulge, they offer wry comments on friends, family, and life. In other words, they are a joy to hear.
A hilarious short story of a first date gone awry by multiple Lambda Literary Award finalist Jerry Wheeler.
