NEW POETRY: The Buoyancy of it All, by Robert Walker


"In his debut collection, The Buoyancy Of It All," says Laura van den Berg, author of What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us, "Robert Walker's dazzlingly acrobatic voice is on full display. These poems are vibrant and vital, and have gifted this reader with a world of images and ideas that have taken up permanent residence in the imagination. A brilliant, bold, and brave work from a gifted new writer." And Jeff Mann, author of Edge and On The Tongue, said, "I found myself grinning at the ballsy, bawdy, poignant, original, memorable nature of it all. Robert Walker's poetry is all of those things. It's also funny, flirtatious, moving, political, sexy, lively, and outrageous."

All is fair in love in and war: Captain Harding's Six-Day War by Elliott Mackle


Assigned to baby-sit a loose-cannon colonel at remote Wheelus Air Base, Libya, handsome, hard-charging Captain Joe Harding spends his off-duty time bedding an enlisted medic and a muscular major, then begins a nurturing friendship with the American ambassador’s teenage son. The boy swiftly develops a crush on the man, feelings that Joe, a Southern gent with a strong moral sense, feels he cannot acknowledge or return. Joe’s further adventures and misadventures during the course of the novel involve a clerk’s murder, a flight-surgeon’s drug abuse, a fist-fight in the officers’ club bar, a straight roommate whose taste for
leather gets him in trouble, the combat death of Joe’s former lover, and participation in an all-male orgy witnessed by two very married but somewhat confused fighter jocks.

In the run-up to the 1967 war, a mob attacks the embassy in nearby Tripoli and the deranged colonel sets out to attack an Arab warship. To bring the pilots and their airplanes safely home – and keep the United States out of the war – Joe has two choices: either come out to his closest, straightest buddies or know himself to be a coward, a failure and a traitor to everything that he holds dear.

NEW RELEASE: The gay erotic epic fantasy MOONTUSK by Bruce P. Grether

 

In this intriguing and frankly erotic tale set in an intricately developed alternate world, the moon has rings, mammoths survive in the far north, and a patriarchal empire rules over provincial kingdoms where the Goddess is still revered. At the heart of the Kemnoan Empire, in the imperial capital Ulan, handsome Prince Dare is the heir to the throne. But this restless young man flees from his duty on a journey of self-discovery with his chameleon cat, Maumet, as his only companion. Telling himself that he's seeking enlightenment, Dare sets off on foot for the mountainous kingdom of Loonapoore, where sacred mammoths are revered. The Loonapoori term for enlightenment means "tusk of the moon." As much as spiritual enlightenment, the young man really seeks the truth of the feelings and passions in his maturing body. Meanwhile, a young Loonapoori noble named Hosis flees from his own family destiny riding on the back of a stolen mammoth cow. From separate directions, the two young men are pulled inexorably toward what will be to both a startling rendezvous and the beginning of an epic adventure together. Accompanied by the mysterious Lady Dee, they will journey to the South Seas to seek the fabled Dream Orchid, said to bestow either enlightenment or death. Along the way Dare encounters both the threat-and the promise-of alluring erotic fulfillment.
