BEST EROTIC FICTION
Read Rainbow County online!
|Readers will thrill to Fritscher's style and imagination. He is the author, says The Bay Area Reporter, who invented the South of Market prose style and the butchest, funniest, and best of the male-male magazines (such as Drummer & MAN2MAN Magazine).
Actually, his short stories have appeared in more than 25 magazines. Rainbow County crosses over from pure gay literature to the terrain of actual American literature. These highly diverse stories are blessed with wit, erotic ingenuity, poetic intelligence, and rough-and-tumble sex scenes.
Fritscher does for writing what his lover Mapplethorpe did for photography: happily confuse the issues by making sex intelligent and therefore all the sexier.
Geoff Mains, the author of Urban Aboriginals, wrote in The Advocate, "Jack Fritscher writes wonderful books!" He's right. Fritscher is absolutely epicentric to gay literature.
His stories and his style are what you've been wishing someone would write to turn on both your dick and your brain. You'll love the stories about soldiers, young men at summer camp, fathers and sons, rough trade, cowboys, swimmers, wrestlers, muscleguys who prefer men with ordinary bodies for sex, even some very sexy X-Files type science fiction!
Richard LaBonte, critic at A Different Light bookstore who chose two of Fritscher's short stories for BEST GAY EROTICA 1998, says Fritscher wins the award for best title of the year for the Rainbow County short story called "Rough Night@Sodom.Cum"!
