Happy mid-summer all!

When I first started writing gay romance way back in the late 90s and early 2000s, my stories leaned more toward the gay erotica side of things. Back then, before there was such a thing as a Kindle and Amazon only sold actual paperback and hardcover books along with office supplies, I made my way selling short stories to men’s magazines and gay erotic anthologies. These magazines had titles such as Bear, 100% Beef, Torso, and Honcho, and I earned about $150 a story.

Over the years I’ve put together a couple of anthologies of my short stories and released others as standalone shorts I call Salacious Singles. Check out the titles and summaries below and, if you’re looking for something short, sweet, and steamy, follow the buy links at the bottom to grab a few for yourself. Don’t forget to hydrate!

A Very Dirty Dozen
Hank Edwards has chosen 11 of his favorite stories published in erotic magazines and anthologies, plus 1 never before published story, and grouped them into one collection. Come on in and read such stimulating fiction as “Short Term Parking,” “Going Back for Thirds,” or “A Heart Full of Scars.” You’ll meet hot office studs, horny Army men, a couple of divorced Dads, and some lonely cowboys, just to name a few. This is one collection that’ll keep you coming back for more!

Another Very Dirty Dozen
Hank Edwards has chosen another 11 of his steamy short stories previously published in erotic magazines and anthologies, plus 1 never before published story, and grouped them into one collection.

Grab tight to this second collection of hot, sizzling stories that’ll keep you coming back for more!

Stroking Midnight – Salacious Single

When the rich and handsome Godfrey Prinze throws a party to find the best dancer to move into his house on the hill, the town’s gay population is whipped into a frenzy. Cameron dreams of going to the party, but knows he could never hope to be included. Then he meets Norbert, his fairy god-daddy, who has a very special way of working his magic. Norbert outfits Cameron in retro cool stripper clothes, including a glass codpiece, but warns him the magic only lasts until midnight. Cameron gets into his stretch limousine that used to be a trash can and heads off to the party to try and woo Godfrey Prinze, though he’s never performed a day in his life.

Wetlands – Salacious Single
When Gordon Westbrick learns the park he jogs through is being considered for the site of a new shopping mall, he joins a group intent on putting a stop to it. He volunteers to spend a night in the park to insure the corporation does not conduct any unseemly acts, and is assigned to partner up with Ivan, one of the conservation group founders. Gordon expects Ivan to be much older, he is a group founder after all, but when he arrives at the park on his assigned night, Gordon is pleasantly surprised to find that Ivan is a hot stud his own age, who not only enjoys nature, but doing what comes naturally when out in the wilds.

Vanity Loves Company – Salacious Single
Eric Franklin is a handsome and intelligent bio-genetic scientist, and he’d be the first one to tell you so. Working in a remote, island laboratory for a private investor, Eric has discovered the secret to cloning an organism’s exact replica, with no need to raise the life form from infancy to maturation. Before he passes the news on to his investor, however, Eric decides to try the process on the perfect human subject: himself. Having always felt as if he lacks an equal to his sexual desires and intellect, Eric is intrigued at the idea of talking, working, and having sex with an exact replica of himself. All health concerns would be moot, and his partner would know his every desire before he spoke it aloud. To Eric, it’s the perfect solution to his lonely situation, but a scientist should realize that nothing is ever, truly perfect.

Bear Market – Salacious Single
Bill is a stock broker, and he has just endured a really bad week. What he wants is a thick slab of meat to take home and grill up.

Can this hotel dick and hairy chested rock star come to some terms of agreement to keep the peace?

Excerpt

Starting with my ankles, he slowly, carefully frisked me, being careful around the transmitter and very thorough every place else. When he got to my crotch, he placed a large, warm palm directly over my almost fully erect cock and squeezed slightly. As he measured the size and rigidity inside my pants, his eyes darted up to meet mine and I felt a high voltage spark of attraction arc between us. My cock sprang up into full readiness and he dragged his palm along its length as he stood to frisk the upper half of my body.

Straith squeezed each muscle in my arms, gauging its tone and firmness like a personal trainer. His hands cupped my damp armpits, digging into them as his eyes remained locked on mine. He was inches from my face; I could feel his breath on my cheek and watched his lips part to expose the tip of his wide, pink tongue. His hands moved over my chest and his thumbs pressed down slightly over the center of my nipples. My stomach quivered as his fingers slid down along my waist and then over my belly, his fingertips leaving traces of heat in their wake.
