'On the heels of Brokeback Mountain and HBO's acclaimed Deadwood series, editors Cecilia Tan and Lori Perkins here capture the familiar American zeitgeist. The lone figure riding the range, exploring the frontier of the Wild West is an enduring, iconic, singularly American figure--and an indisputably erotic one. Living by his own rules, the cowboy is the penultimate embodiment of masculinity. And let's not forget the leather, boots, and pistols!'
'Drawing from their talented and prolific posse of short story writers, Tan and Perkins explores the sensual possibilities of the range, from lesbian cowgirls to true Texas swingers, to riding bucks of every variety. Contributors include M. Christian, Stephen Dedman, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Rakelle Valencia, Shanna Germanin, and many more.'
