|The Badboy Book of Erotic Poetry||Over fifty of gay literature's biggest talents are here represented by their hottest verse. Erotic poetry has long been considered the enfant terrible of serious literature - arresting and exhilarating, but somehow too frank to fit comfortably into the realm of "High Art." The Badboy Book of Erotic Poetry aims at rectifying this situation; both learned and stimulating, it restores eros to its rightful place of honor in comtemporary gay writing.|

|An Anthology of Erotic Prose||The anthology spans the centuries from The Arabian Nights to Erica Jong; and the inclusion of passages from such books as Fanny Hill, Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Frank Harri's My Life and Loves, for example, will come as no surprise. But Edith Wharton, Mark Twain, Sir Thomas Malory...?|
In many of the extracts, sexuality takes second place to narrative, in others to sheer charm. Even some works originally written for pornographic purposes have passages of loving intensity which convey the beauty of caring love-making. When comedy combines with sex, the result is usually anaphrodisiac: however, modern writers like Philip Roth, Gore Vidal and Robert Gover have produced books which are both erotic and hilarious.

|A Letter From My Father: A Classic of Erotic Literature - Volume Two||Throughout his life Ward Smith wrote an autobiographical letter to his son which, in its final form, ran to more than two and a half million words. Much of it was devoted to an account of his sexual adventures told in explicit detail.|
A Letter From My Father is Page Smith's condensed version of the letter his father left him. It provides an extraordinary picture of a man - insecure, sexually obsessed, childish, vain, prejudiced, generous, self-pitying - who speaks to us directly from the past and, despite himself, engages our sympathy and interest. It also affords a unique glimpse into an era, the growth of Manhattan, the opening of the subways, the wild Prohibition parties, the shady political campaigning and the extra-ordinary wheeling-dealing that involved Ward Smith. This book will be read primarily as a sexual autobiography but there is no denying that it is one of the most fascinating documents ever to be unearthed in the history of letters.
