Homosex has plenty of that, but the fantastic thing about this compilation is that there's more to it than titillating stories. Simon Sheppard has managed to create a poignant, erotic history that touches on many of the major milestones of gay life in America through its erotica.
What makes this compilation amazing, in my opinion, are the editor's notes that proceed each story. Sheppard does a great job of setting the context for each piece and helps to tell this history through his brief, yet informative notes. Without his thoughtful research, this would be just another loosely bound concept of a book that would be hot, but forgettable.
The pieces included in this compilation cover sixty years and countless erotic fantasies. Even if you have little interest in the history lesson, you're sure to get off to the amazing stories!
