Fool For Love: New Gay Fiction by R.D. Cochrane, Timothy J. Lambert

In an age of hookups and cybersex, who has time for a little romance? For all those who think love’s gone the way of the 8-track tape comes a collection of new gay fiction designed to reignite their belief in love and romance. Follow the travails of a dog walker enchanted with his new client, a restaurant owner who catches the eye of his most loyal customer, a blind date fix-up, and other seekers of the lost flame as they stumble upon romance and a possible chance at love. Showcasing new work from some of today’s best-known gay writers, including Trebor Healey, Felice Picano, Joel Derfner, Andrew Holleran, and Greg Herren, the stories in Fool for Love are a funny, sweet, and sometimes wrenching reminder of the joy romance brings to the human heart.

About the Author

R.D. Cochrane has published short stories and two novels: Coventry Christmas and Coventry Wedding. Together they have co-published several novels including The Deal, It Had To Be You, When You Don't See Me, I'm Your Man, and Someone Like You. Both live in Houston, TX. Best Gay Romance 2014 "The Best Gay Romance 2014 is an anthology edited by Timothy J. Lambert and R.D. Cochrane that includes 15 stories of m/m relationships that range from the sweet evocation of a new romance amidst the craziness of Hollywood ("Strange Propositions" by Eric Gober) to the carnal pleasures of unexpected lovers initiating someone to all kinds of new experiences in the world of make-believe (“The Invincible Theatre” by Felice Picano). Some were angsty, and others, thought-provoking and emotional, especially “Spill Your Troubles On Me, Love” by Georgina Li, which paints a starkly contrasting portrait of a bond between two people in very harsh circumstances. My favorites are the poignant and wonderfully romantic “Sight” by by Jordan Taylor that follows the development of a relationship that not only has to weather the challenges of coming out but also the obstacle of coping with an unexpected disability and “Shep: A Dog” that blends a whimsical bit of paranormal with the genesis of a sweet new romance. Some of the stories seem to end a bit too soon but there is definitely a nice mixture of styles and this is a great introduction to the works of many talented authors." —Night Owl Reviews "Lustful tales of cruising, catching, and consummating love." —Bay Area Reporter "If you're looking for sweet, hot, first meetings, chance meetings, romance and love that has lasted, then this book holds all you need." —The Romance Reviews
