From the Inside Flap
Every year Richard Labonte sets the bar impossibly high and writers leap to meet his standard, the highest in gay erotic writing. Likewise, reviewers scramble to find superlatives to express the quality, creativity, and diversity of this deliciously dirty phenomena that is the "Best Gay Erotica" series by Cleis Press. Labonte tops all other editors in the genre, and the only bottoming in his book is in one or two stories in the series. Rough yet romantic, racy yet a nice and slow one-handed read, "Best Gay Erotica 2013" is another gold star in the crown of Cleis Press gay erotica.
"These stories are "hot"! So please, just read and enjoy. Feel their throbbing bass lines."
