STARBooks Press gay erotic anthology “Boys Getting Ahead” was rated 5 stars by contributing author Stephen Osbourne. Quoting his words at Goodreads.com:

“I prefer my erotica with some plot and character development, which I know isn’t for everyone who goes for this type of stuff. Some of the stories here are just two guys getting together and humping, and that’s okay, too. Variety is good for anthologies. The best, though, were more than just stories of sex. I particularly liked Stafylos, The Grape Man by David Holly, which may not have been historically accurate but was inventive and sweet and certainly conjured up a picture of another time …more I prefer my erotica with some plot and character development, which I know isn’t for everyone who goes for this type of stuff.

The best, though, were more than just stories of sex. I particularly liked Stafylos, The Grape Man by David Holly, which may not have been historically accurate but was inventive and sweet and certainly conjured up a picture of another time and culture. The real jem, though, was Red Haircrow’s Convenience Store Romance. What a great little story! My own story in the volume was Boy Toy For Hire. It had been a long while since I’d written it, so I re-read it. Not bad!

Thanks Stephen!
