From the Publisher
"Every once in a while a book comes along that completely bowls me over. It shakes me out of any reading ennui I may be experiencing and reminds me once again of the reasons for my love of the written word. The anthology Fool for Love: New Gay Fiction falls into this category."

"When started reading Fool for Love I was pleased to discover real two-handed fiction, love and romance."
—Big Gay Books

"It's tough to choose one author as a favorite here. I loved them ALL."

"It's the newcomers...that give this book its the-future-of-queer-lit-is-good edge."
