David Bergman, Karl Woelz (Eds.) - Men on Men 2000 : Best New Gay Fiction For The Millennium All Books by David Bergman and Karl Woelz - Editors of : Men on Men 2000 : Best New Gay Fiction For The Millennium
Paperback - 256 pages (January 2000) 
Plume; ISBN: 0452280826

"Gay Short Stories; Now spanning eight volumes and two decades, the Men on Men series continues to showcase the remarkable talent of gay literary writers. These venerable collections of short stories have become a gay literary institution, launching the careers of several, now luminary, writers-including Joe Keenan, Christopher Bram, Dale Peck, and David Leavitt. True to its tradition, Men on Men 2000 brings bright new literary talent together with established writers-such as Edmund White and Brian Bouldrey-to offer a poignant collection of gay fiction that is provocative and illuminating at every turn. This diverse group of voices etches an indelible portrait of gay life at the dawn of the twenty-first century, addressing issues such as identity and gender stereotypes, the power of love, the lingering shadow of AIDS, and the new adventure of fatherhood."

~*~ Featured Book Review ~*~
"Gay Short Stories; "Is there something that is inherently 'queered' about the books gay men bring into the English language?" asks Brian Bouldrey. "Yes, and in an exquisitely subtle way, a way that can teach anybody, gay or straight, how to speak that language." He's selected stories for the third volume of the Best American Gay Fiction series with that principle in mind, looking for fiction that offers insight into the unique facets of gay life while offering new perspectives on the things we all take for granted. The 16 contributors include established authors like Allan Gurganus and Dennis Cooper (Cooper is represented by an excerpt from his novel Guide) as well as fresh new writers like Scott Heim and Justin Chin. Bouldrey also has recommendations for other great stories and novels that he was unable to include. Not that there's any cause for complaint about all the great literature he did manage to squeeze between these covers."

Paul Bowles - The Delicate Prey, and Other Stories All Books by Paul Bowles - Author of : The Delicate Prey, and Other Stories
Paperback - 307 pages Reissue edition (November 1990) 
Ecco Press; ISBN: 0880012633

"Gay Short Stories;
Paul Bowles once said that a story should remain taut throughout, like a piece of string. That tense, stretched tone is the key to this collection of 17 eerie tales by the author best known for The Sheltering Sky. The Delicate Prey is dedicated: "For my mother, who first read me the stories of Poe." If Poe had lived in Mexico, and he'd had ice water running in his veins to counteract his feverish romanticism, he might have crafted something like these odd vignettes about human frailty and cruelty. The setting is a world where palm trees are like "shiny green spiders," where bats reel silently overhead in a jet-black sky, where a hot, relentless wind blows across deserted plazas.
As Tobias Wolff writes in Esquire, "The Delicate Prey is in fact one of the most profound, beautifully wrought, and haunting collections in our literature.... Bowles's tales are at once austere, witty, violent, and sensuous. They move with the inevitability of myth. His language has a purity of line, a poise and authority entirely its own, capable of instantly modulating from farce to horror without a ruffle."

Michael Denneny (Ed.) and Rabih Alameddine - The Perv : Stories All Books by Michael Denneny and Rabih Alameddine - Editors of : The Perv : Stories
Hardcover - 208 pages (July 1999) 
Picador USA; ISBN: 0312200412

"Gay Short Stories; Following the publication of his critically acclaimed first novel, Koolaids, Rabih Alameddine offers a collection of stories that explore the world of Lebanese survivors whom the crises of modernity have made homeless, whether they stayed in Lebanon or joined the diaspora abroad. 
These stories explore the relationships within the traditional Lebanese family when that tradition is shattered by a decade of civil war and then investigates those families we go on to create for ourselves. Daring in style as well as content, these tales focus of what anchors our hearts to the world and to each other. 
Suffused by a yearning for what has been lost, these narratives are both experimental and traditional, humorous and disturbing, and confirm without doubt that Alameddine is one of the most original and accomplished young writers to emerge in some time."
