That's it. I will announce not one, but two, winners tomorrow. There, your odds have just doubled, so what are you waiting for? The fine print: contest is available only to those living in the US (sorry, but postal rates to foreign lands is prohibitive).
Here's a bit about the book:
In Rick R. Reed's haunting, mesmerizing, suspenseful, and romantic world, his gay male characters live on the edge, often literally as well as figuratively. In this new collection, you'll take a wild ride with some of literature's most unforgettable characters. Along the way, you'll be moved--to tears, to laughter, to uneasiness, and sometimes, to arousal. As Bette Davis once said, 'Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night.' Previously available only in electronic format, these eight stories of Gay Erotica and Romance have now been combined for a paperback edition! Included are the tales:
Superstar (A story about promises made, promises broken, and dreams unfulfilled. Yet ultimately, it's about realizing that love can come along when one least expects it--and in the unlikeliest of places.)
Through The Closet Door (A tale that brings to painful life the consequences of coming out of the closet when you're married. Gregory's mask is slipping, pulled down by the allure of a handsome neighbor and the demands of a desire that only gets louder the more he tries to quiet it.)
Riding The El At Midnight (When the gorgeous and twisted Mark boards a northbound el train, he is looking for love in all the wrong places. Finding Julio aboard that same train, Mark thinks, is the answer to his dreams. But are his dreams nightmares?)
Fugue (Slip into the dungeon playroom of a master and his boy. But in the boy's mind, a dream state takes him places the master could not imagine...places where the established order turns upside down.)
Incubus (Two men, one predator, and a violent crime equal a journey into hellish nightmare territory. This tale merges horror with a tragic love story and the result is...chilling.)
Man-Amorphosis ('I awoke one morning from uneasy dreams to find my penis had transformed itself into a vagina...' Thus begins the story of a very unusual day.)
No Place Like Home (Trannies and Psychos and Bears...oh my! Burl discovers--in a hilariously bizarre quest--that there really is no place like home.)
Pottery Peter (One long hot summer. Three gorgeous men. And a burning triangle set down in the middle of a factory filled with sweaty men with bulging biceps.)
Good luck! And if you can't wait for the contest you can buy your own copy of On the Edge here.
