Exploring the culture of AIDS, this novel examines the minds of those whose lives revolve around the virus—the gay men who are running scared, barebacking, taking toxic drugs, and raising funds for others similarly afflicted. When Kasper Klotz makes the mistake of infecting a beautiful young Midwesterner, he’s accused, like a handful of other HIV-positive men in North America, of assault and attempted murder. A woman obsessed with Ayn Rand soon makes the incarcerated Kasper her mission. A hilarious, politically incorrect rant, this medical-scientific mystery is a thriller about what makes the AIDS virus tick.

The Judy Garland of the future tells it like she sees it The year is 2050, and, contrary to popular belief, Judy Garland did not die in 1969. At the grand old age of 138, she's re'embraced her real name, Frances Gumm; she's a feminist scholar, working on her Ph. D. at the University of Toronto; and she's writing her thesis on a little'known gay Canadian playwright and drag queen, Dash King, whose rather dismal career ended in a plethora of drugs and promiscuous sex. Obsessed with King's antiquated notion of gay politics, Frances's own meditations on addiction are triggered by his tragic story. Will she go back to drugs, or will she finish her thesis' Framed in an intense communication between Frances and her Ph. D. advisor, Come Back explores a dystopian future and muses on everything from the merits and demerits of post'structuralism to the future of queer theory. Sky Gilbert's Judy Garland is angry, profane, funny, and very, very smart.

A collection of essays focusing on gay male sexuality, this anthology includes bisexual, gay, and transgender essayists writing about life, love, desire, and sex, exploring how they perceive themselves sexually, how their sexual preference defines them, and what turns them on.
