The Biggest Lover

TBL TheBiggestLover RJackson

A gutsy, groundbreaking collection of romantic, lusty tales for big guys and the men who love them!

Praise for The Biggest Lover:
“[Editor R.] Jackson’s anthology of 21 titillating quickies covers a variety of genres, but all the stories embrace those who like to live and love large. … a delicious panoply with something for every bear.” – Publishers Weekly
“The stories in this anthology are a must-read for any guy who’s ever felt left out of the gay scene because of his size or his desire for a man of size. This wonderfully curated collection includes works that are sweet, sweaty, and just plain hot.”   — Dan Oliverio, author of The Round World

The Bear Bones Books imprint of Lethe Press proudly presents its 28th title, The Biggest Lover: Big-Boned Men’s Erotica for Chubs and Chasers, edited by noted gay and bi men’s erotica anthologist R. Jackson.

Not every gay man is obsessed with twinks who list the number of visible rib bones on their Grindr profile. Or men who can remember the number of reps at the gym but not their phone number. Some of us appreciate buying in bulk and that includes looking for love. Or just plain sex. Thank goodness for Bear culture which embraces girth. During Bear Week in Provincetown the stores do not even bother to sell clothes smaller than an XL and a man’s virility is often like the potency of moonshine: the more Xs on the jug the better, so XXXL is a chub in high demand.
It has taken too long for an erotica anthology to feature such men. It is our hope that readers who felt denied of attention and affection will read these stories and realize that love has no weight limit, no threshold, and neither should self-esteem.
As Girth & Mirth founding father Reed Wilgoren stated, “Just as people are coming out every day—men and women realizing their sexuality—new Bears and new Chubbies and new chasers are also evolving in the world. There have to be people waiting to embrace them and show them the way, much as who helped me to become what I am and who I am today.”
This groundbreaking anthology of 21 compelling stories of big masculine love, including outstanding fiction from renowned, award-winning authors as well as fresh voices, is sure to entertain, inform, and stimulate everyone who loves big men.

That’s pretty much it for now. Since Ron cannot find the charger on his beard trimmer, Movember has morphed into Decembeard. Will it last until Janubeardy or Febeardary? Watch this space!

Forthcoming: The Biggest Lover: Big-Boned Men’s Erotica for Chubs and Chasers

Forthcoming March 2015 from Bear Bones Books:

The Biggest Lover

TBL TheBiggestLover RJackson

Why have some of us forever admired, celebrated, and fetishized big men, while modern fashion and other social forces have long stigmatized, even demonized, fatness? How, and why, do we associate bigness with masculinity and sexuality? Strength, comfort, softness, abundance?

THE BIGGEST LOVER: BIG-BONED EROTICA FOR CHUBS & CHASERS features 21 sexy, compelling stories of men’s chuberotica that examine and portray some of these big issues. This groundbreaking anthology is bursting with robust tales of fat love, lust, romance, friendship, and community, with noted authors such as Jeff Mann, Jack Fritscher, William Holden, and Dale Chase, as well as fresh chuberotic voices, in a wide array of genres and styles. THE BIGGEST LOVER is certain to entertain, amuse, and thicken chubbies and chasers everywhere.

Woof, a novel by Dylan Thomas Good

WUF frcoverrevThe Bear Bones Books imprint of Lethe Press is pleased to announce the release of its 27th title, Woof, the debut novel by Dylan Thomas Good.

Advance Praise for Woof:

”Imagine your ex asking you to star in a documentary movie detailing the downfall of your relationship and you still won’t predict the emotional and psychosexual places Woof goes. It’s like a found footage film turned sadomasochistic gay bear fiction.”

— Daniel W. Kelly, Boys, Bears & Scares blog

“Compelling, witty, and shocking, Dylan Thomas Good’s debut novel Woof is a must for film noire loving Bears everywhere.

— Doug Langway, screenwriter & director, BearCity, BearCity 2: The Proposal, and BearCity 3.

“How bad do you want it?”

Job leads, prescription medication, and days until eviction are all in short supply for Carl Danielson.

His aspiring filmmaker of an ex-boyfriend, Dwayne, shows up a year after their breakup, offering his destitute former flame $25,000 for the lead in a low-budget feature. There’s a catch, though — the film is based on their relationship.

Soon, it’s “lights, camera, chaos” as Carl and Dwayne expose the past year of their separate lives to one another — the broken, nightmarish secrets culminating in a gut-wrenching finale even Hollywood could never imagine.

National Leather Association: International, a leading organization for activists in the pansexual SM/leather community, announced the winners for excellence in literary works in SM/leather/fetish writing published in 2014. The judges received a great number of nominations this year and judging in most categories was quite difficult with such exemplary pieces of writing.

*   *   *
Pauline Reage Novel category winner is Jeff Mann for “Salvation: A Novel of the Civil War” (Bear Bones Books). The judges had were unable to select only one runner up so there was a four way tie for Honorable Mention in this category. Honorable Mentions go toJeff Mann for “Cub” (Bear Bones Books),

*   *   *

NLAINominations for literary works published in 2015 will open late this year.

This is Jeff Mann’s second (and third) time receiving the Pauline Reage Award: the first time was in 2012 for his BBB novel, Fog. Congrats to Jeff for this doubly-deserved recognition!
