A wild collection of hysterical telegrams, this book offers poems that are personal, political, angry, and wickedly funny. From Spanish drag queens, movie stars, and one-night stands to cute anatomy students and the inside of a despot's mind, the images of these scarlet confessions turn the reader into an instant therapist, confidante, and voyeur. Eclectic, topical, and always more than a cultural barometer, these poems range stylistically from intense, break-neck story-telling to pure surrealist rant.

In prison, they are interviewed by right wing-journalist Cecilia Wainscott, who quickly discovers that Ichabod is a complex character--both a theoretical mathematician and an exuberantly dark misanthrope. In the end, Cecilia learns a little bit about herself, gay men, theoretical mathematics, and the nature of the universe. Are Dylan and Ichabod evil cold-blooded killers, turned on by a perverse cocktail of death and orgasms, or are they simply misunderstood by a homophobic culture? It's all very scary and funny--but only you, the reader, can decide...
Exploring the culture of AIDS, this novel examines the minds of those whose lives revolve around the virus—the gay men who are running scared, barebacking, taking toxic drugs, and raising funds for others similarly afflicted. When Kasper Klotz makes the mistake of infecting a beautiful young Midwesterner, he’s accused, like a handful of other HIV-positive men in North America, of assault and attempted murder. A woman obsessed with Ayn Rand soon makes the incarcerated Kasper her mission. A hilarious, politically incorrect rant, this medical-scientific mystery is a thriller about what makes the AIDS virus tick.
A collection of essays focusing on gay male sexuality, this anthology includes bisexual, gay, and transgender essayists writing about life, love, desire, and sex, exploring how they perceive themselves sexually, how their sexual preference defines them, and what turns them on. Bringing together 14 insightful and thought-provoking essays from a diverse international group of queer authors, these essays are snapshots into each man's life -- brave, personal, and honest. Varied in theme, the essays' topics range from past lovers and preferred lovers, promiscuity and monogamy, to gender, class, racial, and interracial issues, and how they relate to, and sometimes define, each man's sexuality. Written in numerous styles and voices, from humorous and biting to raunchy and graphic to poignant and poetic, the essays blend into an unforgettable and important anthology that gives voice to a wide spectrum of gay men.
The Judy Garland of the future tells it like she sees it The year is 2050, and, contrary to popular belief, Judy Garland did not die in 1969. At the grand old age of 138, she's re'embraced her real name, Frances Gumm; she's a feminist scholar, working on her Ph. D. at the University of Toronto; and she's writing her thesis on a little'known gay Canadian playwright and drag queen, Dash King, whose rather dismal career ended in a plethora of drugs and promiscuous sex. Obsessed with King's antiquated notion of gay politics, Frances's own meditations on addiction are triggered by his tragic story. Will she go back to drugs, or will she finish her thesis' Framed in an intense communication between Frances and her Ph. D. advisor, Come Back explores a dystopian future and muses on everything from the merits and demerits of post'structuralism to the future of queer theory. Sky Gilbert's Judy Garland is angry, profane, funny, and very, very smart.

It’s difficult to describe A Nice Place to Visit. Some will say it’s not a book of poetry at all — but that’s just because it’s funny and has reviews of bad movies and advice on things like love. Also, it’s a kind of travelogue: you get to go to Costa Rica and look at plants and and stuff and think more about love. And oh yeah, the book tells you who not to sleep with — that’s very important. And have you ever heard of John Wildman, the guy who starred in the Canadian hit movie My American Cousin? Well, there’s an ode to him. There are memorable lines like “Lois and Fran gave me a frying pan.” (But you probably won’t like it if you haven’t heard of Parker Posey. You have heard of Parker Posey, right?) Mostly it’s about things you’ll always remember — like that summer when the boys in Montreal were all wearing underwear that said “Home Of The Brave.” You know . . . It’s a nice place to visit — but I wouldn’t want to live there.
