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 break-up, 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 finale even Hollywood could never imagine.

Jay Neal

Sunday Shorts – “The Biggest Lover” Q&A with Jay Neal

Jay Neal

“I decided early on that I wanted to tell a love story about a big guy longing to be dominated, and his surprise when he discovered it could happen with a man much smaller than he is; the thought never crossed his mind.”

Hank Edwards

Sunday Shorts – “The Biggest Lover” Q&A with Hank Edwards

“I’m a fan of bears, and many of the characters in my stories are hairy, so that part of the story was a fun and comfortable fit. I tend to write longer fiction, so the word count limit was really the biggest challenge for me. I had to balance characterization, dialogue, plot, and, of course, the sex.”

Hank Edwards

Ben Bauchlein

Sunday Shorts – “The Biggest Lover” Q&A with Ben Bauchlein

“As for the anthology, it’s really rewarding to be a part of it. I was in my mid-20’s before I knew the bear community even existed, and it was a few years after that before I met a guy who was an out-and-proud chaser, so to see this in print, to see so many stories and so many perspectives all together like this? It’s pretty amazing.”

Ben Bauchlein

 

 

 

 

 

William Holden

Sunday Shorts – “The Biggest Lover” Q&A with William Holden

William Holden

“One night while sitting by the river in New Orleans with my best friend Dale Chase we hatched both our stories. During one of our moments of utter silliness I mentioned the phrase, Moby Dick, and it was a light bulb going off over both our heads.”

 

Ron Suresha / R. Jackson

Sunday Shorts – “The Biggest Lover” Q&A with R. Jackson

“I expect every story that is submitted to be a welcome surprise in some manner. It should do something different, even if it doesn’t necessarily succeed, something more than A meets B and they meet C and then they all do XYZ. A good erotic story should grab me by the balls and not let go.”

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 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.

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.
