Short fiction that is long on romance, Best Gay Romance 2011 encompasses the dizzying emotions of the human heart in love: delight, longing, relief, despair, anger, and deepest desire. From first times to brief encounters, to rediscovered missed connections and longtime companions, editor Richard Labont has curated a classic on the subject of love between men.
Each story unfolds the "possibility of happy-ever-after - the warm, beating heart of romantic desire." Lightning strikes more than once during a fateful tryst in Martin Delacroix's "First Roach Pond." Edward Moreno's "You're a Dog" reminds us that love can be flexible, while Eric Nguyen recalls first kisses and the stirrings of puppy love - and lust - in "How Boys Flirt With Other Boys".
