    1. Unfortunately dated now in both style and substance, this 1986 set of short fiction does have significant contributions from some current stars of gay fiction: primarily Andrew Holleran, Felice Picano, Dennis Cooper, and Edmund White. As such, the value is primarily historical and it is interesting to consider how these authors have evolved in the succeeding 35 years. It is also shocking that many of the included authors died of AIDS shortly after the publication of the book so in some cases thi [...]



    2. A solid if fairly narrow collection of perspectives and voices. The good ones really capture a moment in time of transition for gay men, that murky time before HIV/AIDS was a full blown crisis but people knew something was wrong, like a monster lurking under the bed. Stand outs include White's "Oracle" and Holleran's "Friends at Evening" (expectedly), as well as Patrick Hoctel's "Bad Pictures", Bruce Boone's "David's Charm" and Robert Gluck's "Sex Story". Worth a read if you stumble upon a copy. [...]


    3. Not as good as subsequent volumes in this series. A handful of standout stories with great writing and emotional depth (Felice Picano, Ethan Mordden, Robert Ferro) interspersed with the bleak and perverse. (What do I mean by perverse? Nothing homophobic about it, I simply don't want to read about feces play during sex, OK?)
