Here, then, are a few of the jewels that the pro editors have never seen, poor things. I've also included recommendations of online and offline writings by professional writers. You can judge for yourself whether those professional tales match up to the high standards set by amateur authors.
In addition to fiction, this site recommends videos, Websites, narrative poetry, and narrative nonfiction. Most of what I read falls into the category of male homoerotic stories or male friendship stories, but this site reflects my broad tastes; you'll find recommendations to other categories of stories here too, properly labelled.
As anyone who has read my stories can guess, I'm especially drawn to angsty, plot-driven tales that focus on strong emotional bonds between characters. An interesting theme or an ethical struggle can easily hook me into a story.
The word "homoerotic" simply means "homosexual" here, though a number of the stories do include erotic content.
If you would like to submit your own online male homoerotic fiction recommendations, Buried Treasure's companion site Private Parlor offers you an opportunity to do so. True Tales: An Erotic E-zine of Masculinity and Power is similar to this site, but specifically focusses on recommendations of homoerotic fiction, nonfiction, art, photography, music, and videos that center on masculinity and power. The Slash Skinny provides information on professionally published male and female homoerotic fiction.
I'm still searching for the perfect place to find male friendship stories.
