Here's a collection of stories drawn from a wide range of gay male publications, ranging from rough and ready tales of manly brutality to vignettes of homage to the masculine body.
Christopher Morgan, the well-known author of some of the hottest male-male erotica ever to grace the pages of a 'zine or anthology, comes out of the closet at last! Christopher is really Laura Antoniou, author of the very popular Marketplace series of erotic novels and editor of the Leatherwomen anthologies.
Antoniou says, "I wrote [the stories in Shop Stud] thinking of men at work and at rest – for powerful masters of destiny and eager bottom-boys who were desperate to be taken. I wrote them for magazines, under another name, because that's the business I work in. Now, they can be recognized as mine, gathered together, my own collection of hot men and their adventures."
About the Author
“Queens-born Laura Antoniou is heiress presumptive to some of the erotic territory staked out by Pat Califia and John Preston… (Her) writing moves with assurance between genders and sexual orientations, relentlessly exploring the dark side of sexuality.” --Michael Rowe, author, Writing Below the Belt
“Antoniou is an elegant stylist of erotica…” --Pat Califia, author, Macho Sluts; Doing it for Daddy
