Some of the hottest writers of gay erotica spin tales of Riding the Rails.

Trains are so romantic. The clock fades from your mind as the country spreads out before you. Forget catching up on your reading—you have scenery to inspire you and time for an innocent flirtation or two. Or ten. Maybe not so innocent and more than a flirtation.

"Forget catching up on your reading-you have scenery to inspire you and time for an innocent flirtation or two. Or ten. Maybe not so innocent and more than a flirtation"

This is how this anthology is introduced and the travel kept its promise, I enjoyed most of the stories. What prevails however is that I discovered Nathan Burgoine whose story really made a strong impression on me.

Edit: Price-drop, until September 17th, 2017, on the Bold Strokes Books web-store, in e- and paper- formats, 15% off.

Full disclosure: I have a story in this collection, "Elsewhen." My husband considers it the best short fiction piece I've written, actually.

You always know you're in for a treat when Jerry L. Wheeler picks an anthology theme (and he always comes up with awesome themes). This collection was no exception, and I loved, loved, loved where people took the trains (outer space, historic

I find something intrinsically romantic about rail travel - especially, but not solely, steam train travel. I particularly enjoyed Jeff Mann's Highland Sleeper (I think Mr Mann has a definite affinity with the Highlands and Islands), Hank Edwards' Reunion on the Rails, Dale Chase's Royal Service, Jay Neal's One Night on the Twentieth Century and Dusty Taylor's The Roundhouse Men. 'Nathan Burgoine's Elsewhen is a touching tale and perhaps very apt for the upcoming cetenery of the First World War.
