Format: Paperback
I found "Cock Tales" to be a great read: sexy, well-written, sometimes funny, sometimes touching, even sometimes haunting. The stories avoid the standard porn cliches and actually have real plots and characters. The only quibble I might have is with the story titles, which sometimes get a little silly ("Fireman Nick Slides Down the Pole", "69ing on a Stormy Sea")but the actual stories are well-crafted and fun to read. I highly recommend the book.

Bob Vickery, whoever he might be, has a way with words and a nice sense of character and place, and he's able to do that rare thing - write harcore sex scenes that actually arouse and capture a sense of gay men's desires. Like the previous reviewer, I find the titles of the stories silly and unimaginative. But don't let that stop you from dipping into a first-rate collection. In fact, you'll find it hard to read just one tale at a time. And yes, that was a pun.

Bob Vickery stands as close to the top of excellent male erotic writing as may be possible. Interestingly,based on the publication date, this is one of his earlier collections. And that's important as several later anthologies borrow heavily from earlier works and one ends up with something old something new but always something very blue. My problem is that this is an author I admire and enjoy so to purchase a book that's partially retread is annoying. But not here.

Vickery's enormous talent is to take characters that are not standard issue and locate them in interesting and compelling locations. Think sex in a pool is mundane? How about if you have to be in the pool to avoid being incinerated by a raging fire. His people are real and easily identified with. Whether you can imagine being a trapper of beaver skins or a suburban dad on a bus, you'll find them all interesting. Whatever it is they're after you want them to find it but you're as interested in how they find it as what the payoff may be.

Another advantage is his choice of locations. Other authors should take note that not all gay-themed books are mandated to take place in San Francisco or New York. Vickery wanders around the country from backwoods to backyards. It's an invigorating change from the overworked venues of other writers.

His handling of sex goes far beyond the AAARRRGGGHHHH

OOOOOwwwOOOO that in many books seems more to do with BATMAN then sex. He gives us their motivation for wanting sex, beyond just the prosaic, "it feels good" and finds wide varieties of needs and how they should be fulfilled. You'll like these guys, flaws and all.

As has been previously cited, the titles are silly. Accurate but silly. One wonders how a competent editor didn't suggest some changes.
