“Jay Neal’s WAKING UP BEAR & OTHER URSINE STORIES is a tremendously fun and wildly sexy romp through Beardom. Written with great humor, honesty, compassion, and arousing eroticism, Neal’s stories explore the passionate, romantic nature of Bears and admirers.

“His heroes are often shy, self-doubting men who somehow find the balls to grab the fantasy guys they desire and the love they seek. In creating an erotic world where Bears are the hottest of studs and most loving of men, Neal successfully transforms Bear fantasy into Bear reality on the page.”

— DANIEL M. JAFFE, Author of The Limits of Pleasure & Jewish Gentle


* * * * *


“Jay Neal thickens and sweetens all his writing with a honeyed sense of humor, and his wit, humility, and humanity shine through even his most acerbic observations of Bear relationships and community. . . . What the denizens of his fiction have in common is an awakening to a certain erotic state of being — one which in the shorthand of gay parlance we call being a Bear.”

— R. JACKSON, Editor of Bearotica & The Biggest Lover, from the Preface


* * * * *


Sexy, fun, and often touching, WAKING UP BEAR features twenty of Jay Neal’s most captivating stories, from the pages of American Bear magazine and several Lambda Literary Award-winning anthologies of gay men’s erotic fiction, including three previously unpublished tales.

  • Uncommon Sense will be available on Kindle again shortly.
  • Uncommon Sense narrated by Ted Brooks is still available on Audible.

Our first projects in 2018 are to reissue:

  • A new softcover edition of Suresha’s award-winning book, Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddin, a Kindle version, and the audiobook.
  • A new softcover edition of Suresha’s acclaimed book, Bears on Bears, and a Kindle version.
  • A new softcover edition of Suresha’s award-winning book (under his pseudonym “R. Jackson”), Bi Guys, and a Kindle version.

Please stay tuned for further developments and contact us at with any queries. Woof!
