Short stories best suited for one-handed reading. Christopher Morgan, the well-known author of some of the hottest male-male erotica ever to grace the pages of a ‘zine or anthology, comes out of the closet at last!
Christopher is really Laura Antoniou, author of the very popular Marketplace series of erotic novels and editor of the Leatherwomen anthologies. So here’s a collection of stories, drawn from a wide range of gay male publications, ranging from rough and ready tales of manly brutality to vignettes of homage to the masculine body.
The author says, “I wrote them thinking of men at work and at rest – for powerful masters of destiny and eager bottom-boys who were desperate to be taken. I wrote them for magazines, under another name, because that’s the business I work in. Now, they can be recognized as mine, gathered together, my own collection of hot men and their adventures.”
Compared to the irony, symbolism, social commentary and virtuoso writing that have slipped into male-on-male erotica (including the annual Best Gay Erotica), these stories look as charmingly naive as small-town boys from yesteryear. One can imagine Christopher Morgan stroking his own dick while writing his fantasies with the other hand. How postmodern.
