And I should point out to our lurkers that our own Mr. Joe is a bit of a writer himself.

He's part of a new anthology published by Cleis Press Books called HOT GAY EROTICA 2006.

You can buy the book in the chains -Barnes & Nobles, Borders etc. (But if you pick it up from an independent that's always better).

As Mr. Joe says, "Support the "little guys"!

In NYC, check Oscar Wilde or Bluestockings.
In Atlanta, check Outwrite.

If you prefer the comfort of your own home or office and are repulsed by the idea of actually touching something with your hands before you buy... well, you can go to the Cleis Press homepage , or onlined booksellers or

Has anyone read "Now Is The Hour" yet?
I saw it in the Barnes & Noble window so I know it's out.

It's great.
It's the Tom Spanbauer that you love but I have to say it won't destroy you for weeks after like the others.

Like in the first chapter I totally fell in love with his dog Tramp. Then I started thinking
-Damn! He's gonna kill the dog, I just know it. The dog is gonna die. So I called him and said, "Are you going to do this to me again? Is this dog gonnna get creamed by a pick-up truck or something"?
His words:
"Don't worry, the dog doesn't die. I go easy on you in this book".

And it's true, he does.

I'm not saying that it's not intense because it's Tom Spanbauer but he does go a little easy on us.

Thought I'd dust off this topic.

For Spanbauer-philes: Tom and his partner, Michael Sage Ricci, both have short memoir pieces just published in PORTLAND QUEER - TALES OF THE ROSE CITY, Lit Star Press. Both pieces are, of course, fantastic. Currently, I'm being hosted in Portland by "Andy," who you can meet in Sage's piece.
