Long out-of-print, this novella is Ganymede´s life story - unapologetic in its ribald details of Greek gods in disguise, trying to seduce the most beautiful youth in the Ancient world. When a prince of Troy is born with perfect proportions, not only does every man he meets desire him, but the Immortals want him as their lover. Ganymede loses his virginity to Hermes at 12, at 14 he captures the attention of Ares and Apollo...can Zeus be next? This risqué tale, narrated by acclaimed storyteller Jason Frazier, will appeal to all who have wondered how one boy stepped out of myth to become a gay icon. 1. Language: English.

A cultural critique of growing up in the United States, including such topics as our universities as purveyors of hopelessness and the dynamics of ´getting laid´ taught in high school, which emphasizes that taking on the ´straight´ role is damaging to all human beings regardless of sexual orientation. This role is taught to us from the moment of birth through all of the institutions of our society and the major methods by which it is installed are fear-based. Thus it sets up gender roles for men and women and oppressor and victim roles for heterosexuals and non-heterosexuals. The final chapter ´´How to Be Human´´ is on how to heal the hurts all human beings suffer from the methods by which we are conditioned to live these roles. Robert N.

In Horny: Stories Selected & New, Greg Boyd reinvents fictions and fables we think we know and takes them in unexpected directions. From the ´´Minor Russian Classic´´ in highly-condensed form to the updated re-telling of the Lone Ranger tale in ´´Tonto,´´ to the tabloid satire of ´´I Married Elvis,´´ the stories in this collection celebrate the unexpected - often unraveling the threads of contemporary American myth and culture in the process. Only in Greg Boyd´s alternate literary reality could there exist ´´Further Adventures of Huck, Tom and Jim,´´ in which Mark Twain´s classic characters travel the dry concrete of the Los Angeles River. Mr. Boyd writes: ´´Though I cannot claim to have been raised by wolves, the strangeness of my family life did contribute to the blend of humor and surrealism readers have found in my writing. Certainly anything is possible and stories happen all around us. Driving through the fog one morning years ago I found a toddler walking in the middle of the deserted road. Like many of my characters, I travel along the indistinct frontier between imagination and reality.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Kipiniak.

Something very strange is going on in Bowling Green, Kentucky. A masked terrorist attacks a local politician and a news reporter at a minor league baseball game. A Gay Pride parade is bombed. A veteran´s home is invaded and taken over by new ownership, and every resident that is not Caucasian has suddenly...disappeared. Krump Enterprises, run by Ronald Krump and his assistant, Race Scanlon, have begun a systematic takeover of the city, spreading rumors about immigrant violence, tearing down horse farms to build a country club, blackmailing the mayor, and much, much worse. It´s up to Police Chief Hannity, Dr. Abner Brody, a reporter named Lauren Kelly, a stoner named Walt, and Frederick Douglass, time traveler, to track down the truth, and stop Krump before the city falls under his sway, and even darker days prevail.

It starts as a whisper, barely audible. Rumors. Paranoia. Conspiracy theories. Subterfuge. Like lightning, the plague moves across the globe, spreading out in all directions and leaving few alive. But the end is only the beginning. Discovered in the Alaskan permafrost, the ancient virus was reanimated and genetically altered. The new strain showed great promise in curing many of mankind´s afflictions. When the specimen fell into the hands of the Russian theocracy, their inept scientists attempted to create a biological weapon - a weapon that outsmarted them. Now, the androvirus is a deadly airborne plague, conquering the world in a matter of days. With a communicability of 100% and a mortality rate of over 90%, there is no immunity. For the survivors, who can suppress the virus, there is only change. A few adapt, but most become walking, talking gray horrors with an appetite for flesh. Primarily set in the American city of Memphis, four loosely-connected strangers, caught up in their lives, find their worlds annihilated by the swiftly-moving plague. Alex Connelly is a wealthy young executive, living an idyllic life with his pregnant wife, Madison. Kirk Foster is a self-absorbed aging gay man, desperate to hang onto his youth and sex appeal.
