Desire: Tales of New Orleans
stories by William Sterling Walker

Desire: Tales of New Orleans, a debut collection of short fiction by William Sterling Walker, delves into the gay demimonde in New Orleans before the flood. Circles of friends and acquaintances—lawyers and supermarket clerks, drifters, painters and musicians, cabaret singers and writers—alternately dominate the landscape and fade into the background. However they identify themselves, they speak a common language—funny, sexy, pithy, sometimes bitchy, always on-target.

But perhaps the main character in the book is the city itself. A litany of place names evokes New Orleans’ visceral hold on these men; even when they are far away, the memory of the city haunts them. William Sterling Walker’s vividly imagined characters embody the unquenchable spirit of place that would go on to survive unimaginable natural disasters, both physical and personal. Like the city, they are unforgettable in their boldness and fascination.

Desire, Lust, Passion, Sex
stories by Jameson Currier

Desire, Lust, Passion, Sex brings together twenty stories by Jameson Currier—including six never-before-published works as well as the author’s widely praised short fiction previously published in literary journals, Web sites, and award-winning anthologies such as Best Gay Erotica, Best American Erotica, and Men on Men. In this new collection, the author meticulously details the search for love, romance, and partnership between gay men, and his characteristically spare prose brings into sharp relief the sometimes maddening traits that constitute a person’s romantic ideal and shows how the quest for a meaningful relationship can transform—or derail—the course of our lives.

Or is it? Both Chester and Daphne are blessed with an inspirational naivety and ambition that won’t surrender to any humiliation.

Let’s Shut Out the World
essays by Kevin Bentley

Bitingly funny and at times harrowingly sad, Let’s Shut Out the World traces the man-hungry and misanthropic journey of an intensely bibliophilistic young man following his natural bent from a desolate Texas landscape of tumbleweeds, Jesus freaks, and compliant straight boys to the gay capital of San Francisco in pursuit of sex, drugs, a lover, and more.

Whether describing having his hair styled by a gang of eighth-grade bullies; staging a Satan festival in the main hall of Greenvale High complete with black robes, black candles, and raw chickens; succumbing to a sneezing fit inside the healing Sanctuary at Chimayó; or indulging in inappropriate sex with a caregiver, Bentley writes with a pen dipped in blood, indignation, and grim whimsy.

Let’s Shut Out the World is both prequel and sequel to the author’s rough-and-ready romantic escapades detailed in his diaries, the Lambda Literary Award finalist for memoir, Wild Animals I Have Known. Included in the reprint from Chelsea Station Editions is Bentley’s essay, “When I Was a Poet,” previously only available in the now out-of-print anthology, Sex By the Book.

A Pornographer
memoir by Arch Brown

In 2012, in the months following the death of playwright and filmmaker Arch Brown at the age of 76, an unpublished manuscript was discovered while archiving his possessions, a memoir titled A Pornographer. In it, Brown, whose career as a director of sex films stretched from 1967 to 1985, recounts his interviews in the late 1960s and early 1970s with many of the men and women who wanted to star in his sex films—some who did, others who did not. Here, he is all at once receptionist, gopher, casting agent, writer, director, stagehand, cameraman, talent scout, friend, and on-the-spot psychiatrist. You don’t need to have viewed any of Arch Brown’s sex films from this era to appreciate this memoir. In fact, Brown goes out of his way to not mention the titles of any of his films and he only identifies his cast of characters by fictional first names. The result is that A Pornographer is an historical gem, an unexpectedly insightful psychological view of the performers who were drawn to having sex in front of a camera and how and why audiences responded to them

“Temperamental” was code for “homosexual” in the early 1950s, part of a secret language gay men used to communicate. The Temperamentals, Jon Marans’ hit off-Broadway play, tells the story of two men—the communist Harry Hay and the Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich—as they fall in love while building the Mattachine Society, the first gay rights organization in the pre-Stonewall United States.  This special edition includes Marans’ script and production photos from the off-Broadway production, along with a foreword by actor Michael Urie; an introduction by activist David Mixner; a look at Gernreich’s fashion career by journalist Joel Nikolaou, and an afterword on Harry Hay by journalist Michael Bronski.

The Third Buddha
a novel by Jameson Currier

Like Currier’s previous work, the author once again targets the big themes of modern gay life in his new novel: identity, faith, homophobia, romance, and the complexity of relationships, but at the heart of The Third Buddha are the little acts of random kindness that continue to astonish in times of crisis and war. Jameson Currier expands his richly detailed storytelling to an international level in this new novel, weaving together the intertwining stories of the search for a missing journalist in the Bamiyan region of Afghanistan with a young man’s search for his older brother in Manhattan in the aftermath of 9-11. The result is a sweeping, multi-cultural novel of what it means to be a gay citizen of the world.

When a death occurs at Le Petite Paradis, a guesthouse in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the spirit world becomes unsettled, or so Avery Greene Dalyrymple III, the co-owner believes. The son and grandson of Southern evangelists, Avery is also an overworked and overwrought middle-aged gay man, a cynical “big-time drinker and sinner” fairly certain he can maintain a family of “other deviants and delinquents stumbling along Bourbon Street” to keep him company.  But Avery is also the only person in contact with the spirit world on his property—ghosts from the house’s origins during the 1820s—and he must use the history left behind from another ghost—a gay man from the 1970s—to find a way to restore peace to his household and rejuvenate his faith.

Wild Animals I Have Known: Polk Street Diaries and After
memoir by Kevin Bentley

In the late ’70s there was a massive migration of young gay men to San Francisco. They left home in droves, traveling by plane, bus, Pinto or Volkswagen towards a life free from discrimination. Struggling to make ends meet, many worked in bookstores and restaurants, all the while taking advantage of a scene of sexual hedonism. Kevin Bentley faithfully kept a frank, literate diary of his experiences as this generation of gay men tumbled into the era of AIDS.  A Lambda Literary award finalist in Autobiography, this edition available from Chelsea Station Editions features a new afterword by the author.
