Volume 1 of Trojan Men
In Homer's epic recounting of the Trojan war, the Iliad, prince Hector was Troy's greatest warrior but, he tends to excite little interest from modern day authors looking for inspiration. “Hector and Anatolius” tells the story of Hector before the Greeks, or even Helen, arrive. Hector is the dutiful son and heir to king Priam in most respects, except in his resistance to find a woman to marry. His inclinations lie in another direction entirely.More

Kyle is a young man who seems to have everything going for him. He comes from a well off family, who have provided a good education, a loft in town for him to live in, and his own car. But his family didn't give him much love or attention, and if they knew he was gay, he would lose everything. It's perhaps not too surprising that Kyle doesn't have a very high opinion of his value, and you might wonder if this is what draws him so strongly to being a submissive when a friend introduces him to the BDSM world. However, even now, Kyle hasn't found a Dom who wants to do more than a scene with him, until Master Mal buys him at auction. More

Carter Evans is the founder and editor of the science fiction magazine Astounding! but the publication, like most print media these days, is on its last legs. Carter can't afford to keep it going for much longer. Adding to his headaches are the submissions of one J. Harper, a very persistent, and very bad, author who keeps sending in new versions of his work despite numerous rejections.

This anthology of eight stories by British authors explores the role of toys in relationships between men. In some of the tales the notion of what is a ‘toy’ is stretched a bit, but almost all feature some object, to some degree, which plays a part in the plot.
The level of kink varies from essentially none to being a central part of the relationships depicted. Since these are short stories, don't count on well developed characters or intricate plots. Most of these get right down to business with little or no introduction. More

By the end of the 23rd century, humanity has established its first colony outside the solar system, on a planet called Eidolon. The achievement required not only advancements in spacecraft engineering, but also cybernetics, since augmentation was required to make humans capable of deep space flight and living on an alien world larger than Earth. As you can imagine, it takes no time at all for cybernetic implants to become mainstream, with everyone from athletes to high class escorts getting augmented to improve their game. And, just as inevitably, there's a backlash. A political movement calling itself the Pure Light comes to power promising restore humanity to its ‘proper’ state. Augmentation is outlawed, and those deemed more than 50% machine are made the property of the government. Chips are implanted in their brains to make them virtual slaves and they're either used for experimentation, hard labor in the mines of the gas giants, or soldiers used to enforce the Pure Light's power.
