Format: Paperback
I have enjoyed M. Christian's work for a long time. His solo collection Dirty Words: Provocative Erotica and his two multiple-author anthologies co-edited with Simon Sheppard, Rough Stuff: Tales of Gay Men, Sex ,and Power and Roughed Up: More Tales of Gay Men, Sex, and Power, are among my favorite volumes of erotica.

Which brings me to Filthy: Outrageous Gay Erotica, a new collection of gay erotic stories by M. Christian. To say this is a great book is an understatement. It runs the gamut of emotions, from anger to sadness to ecstasy to envy.

Here are capsule reviews of some of my favorite stories from Filthy...

"The Greener Grasses" in one short story captures the entire paradox of trying to reconcile a leatherfetish lifestyle into the humdrum world of 9-to-5 jobs and dishes to be washed more than volumes of scholarly non-fiction ever has.

"Flyboy" is a wistful tale of a man who has two lovers, one flesh and blood and one as big as all outdoors. Guess which one gets him in the end. You might be surprised.

"Love" reads as a tender valentine to all the gay men, imaginary or otherwise, who have inspired the author over the years to create his amazing tales of erotica.

"Suddenly, Last Thursday" is a haunting, harrowing riff on Tennessee Williams's play Suddenly, Last Summer.

And "Friday Night at the Calvary Hotel" is an amazing tale that gets my vote for one of the top ten best short stories ever.

Filthy transcends its genre of erotica and enters the realm of literature. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
