The Golden Age of Gay Fiction

Edited by: Drewey Wayne Gunn
MLR Press
262 pages
CA$55 + S&H

In this splendid illustrated anthology, nineteen writers explore the gay fiction of the period between the first Kinsey Report in 1948 and the early Gay Liberation movement – a "virtual festival of queer self-assertion."

Praised by Christopher Bram, John D'Emilio and others, this is a "fascinating grab-bag" of entertaining information about pulps, muscle mags and other gay literature.

Essays include "American Gay Erotic Paperbacks: A History" by Tom Norman, "The Gay Publishing Revolution" by Victor J. Banis, Gordon Merrick and the Writing of Romance" by Joseph M. Ortiz, "The First King of Pornography: H. Lynn Womack and Washington DC's Guild Press" by Philip Clark, and two pieces by Ian Young, "The Paperback Explosion: How Gay Paperbacks Changes America" and "The Two Rodney Garlands: A Literary Mystery."

Lavishly illustrated in colour.
