From the Publisher

In a college town known as the Athens of the Southwest, studs of every stripe are up all night studying, naturally. In B.M.O.C., Lars Eighner includes the very best of his short stories, with a cast of handsome honor students majoring in Human Homosexuality.

More About the Author

Lars Eighner is the author of Travels with Lizbeth, the 20th anniversary edition of which can be pre-ordered now for Dec. 3, 2013 release. He is the author of numerous golden-age gay erotic stories, a novel, and a work of gay theory.

Lars Eighner was born November 25, 1948 in Corpus Christi, Texas, the grandson of Texas poets Alice Ewing Vail and John Arthur Vail. He grew up in Houston, Texas and was graduated from Lamar High School. He studied creative writing at the Corpus Christi Fine Arts Colony under George Williams of Rice University (then Rice Institute). He attended the University of Texas (now The University of Texas at Austin) and completed major work in Ethnic Studies. He contributed to The Rag (Austin underground newspaper) and numerous local gay publications.

He began writing gay erotica in the early 1980s, placing erotic short stories in nearly all of the slick and not-so-slick gay magazines of that era including Blueboy, Inches, Mandate, Drummer, The Guide, Manifest, In Touch for Men, and Honcho. He published essays in The Advocate and a number of regional gay publication. He placed the first safer-sex docu-fiction with Blueboy when no other slick gay men's magazine was addressing the issue of safer sex and the AIDS crisis - health crisis organizations had to buy ad space to get safer sex information in magazines at that time.

His first collection of short stories (Bayou Boy) was published by Gay Sunshine press in 1985.

In 1988 he and his dog Lizbeth became homeless. Their experiences over the following three years were recorded in Travels with Lizbeth (St. Martin's Press, 1993) and became a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice. He and Lizbeth appeared on the cover of The New York Times Book Review and in the pages of People, The Guardian (UK), and Texas Monthly among others.

His works include numerous story collections, a comic novel, a book about writing gay erotica, and a book of gay theory.

He lives in a very modest apartment in Austin with his companion of 27 years.

Format: Paperback
Lars Eighner's work is really fairly literate for one-handed reading. Some of the material is looking a bit dated in the light of safer sex, the Net and other "gifts" of our time, but the overall premise is sound. If hot college boys gettin' it on do the job for you, grab this book in one hand, kick back and relax, and enjoy the diversion. It's the intelligent alternative to most of the stroke fiction out there.
