2 journalers for this copy...
I've had this softcover on my keeper shelves for years now, but I think it's time it went traveling. It's a collection of erotic stories, originally published in 1993, and with a variety of moods. Among my favorites:
"Barbed Wire", in which the narrator, fresh from a broken relationship, falls for a wounded veteran.
"Strange Young Man", about a hippie cult in which "free love" isn't free at all - and which turns very dark by the end.
"Mr. White Lightning", about a short-lived affair with a televangelist preacher.
"They Won't Forget," a grim little tale of a gay witch-hunt in 1955 Boise, Idaho, and based on a real-world scandal.

I've read half a dozen or so of these stories, but the author's writing style isn't my cup of tea. Some of the plots are pretty interesting, but I keep getting distracted by writing choices I don't enjoy.
Hopefully it will be a better match for the next reader!
(For future readers: I would note that based on the stories I read, there is quite a lot of rape discussed, sexual assault on page, relationships that have power dynamics that could be upsetting for some people (such as student/teacher, and psychiatric patient/caretaker) and questionable or absent consent. If this is upsetting or triggering for you, this may be a book you want to skip.)
