All men hold secrets. It’s in their genes. It’s part of their nature. The mystery of a man, like his musky, masculine scent, is discovered only when he meets naked with another man.

The janitor in the college bathrooms late at night and the professor he meets there. The grizzled mountain men in the Old West sharing a bathtub in a hotel room. The neighbor kid’s Dad in his underwear, drinking and watching videos in the basement. The thickset, gray-bearded homeless daddybear in the alley behind the house. The shadowy priest confronting the young man confessing his sins. The burly innkeeper at a mysterious rustic country retreat.

By day, these men daily mask their innermost desires. Yet it is inevitable that, in the course of their nighttime duties, these men of hair and bone will reveal the hidden secrets thumping in their hearts and pulsing in their pants, to another man who will fulfill those hidden fantasies.

In Night Duty, Nicolas Mann shares his erotic fiction and artwork featuring masculine, hairy men and the other sexy guys whom they lust after, and who love them in return — including drawings created especially for this book.

As a writer, illustrator, and photographer in the gay/bi/queer men’s Bear community, Nick calls himself a dreamer and admits that his dreaming life is richer than his waking one. To him, “dreams are like stories and stories are like dreams: they walk hand in hand in the realm of sleep.”

This unique collection of bearotic fiction and art will amuse and arouse anyone who enjoys the intimate company of masculine men.

About the Author

Nicolas Mann (no relation to BBB author Jeff Mann) grew up in Northern Ohio, where he began writing and drawing at an early age. In 1974 he moved to Chicago, where he studied at The American Academy of Art. His writing was published first in 1993 when, prompted by a friend, he submitted a story to the popular gay / bi men’s magazine, HandJobs. Since then, Mann has contributed more than a dozen stories to HJ, often accompanied by his own drawings and photography, as well as illustrations for other stories. Mann’s writing has been published also in 100% Beef magazine and in the anthology, Tales from the Den. His artwork has graced the cover of the weekly paper Gay Chicago, and appeared in several local bar advertisements. The author lives in upstate Wisconsin with his partner Matthew, their dog Gus, and their cat Lila.
