About this book
The first volume of Quickies, the anthology of short short fiction on gay male desire, was published in 1998 and appeared on numerous gay/lesbian bestseller lists, including The Advocate in May 1999; it is now well into its second printing. This second volume of gay male short shorts delivers some of the hottest stories yet on sex and desire between men.
Like Hot & Bothered, its lesbian counterpart, there are 69 stories from numerous countries around the world, including the US, Canada, Great Britain, and elsewhere. There are stories that run the gamut of gay men's sexual experience, from first kisses to last calls. And, once again, the book's contributors include well-known and first-time writers from around the world.
