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.
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.

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...
