Featuring stories from T.C. Mill, A.K. Moss, Toni Mobley, Barend Nieuwstraten III, Ashley L. Hunt, Charles Kyffhausen, Lil Deville, Kelly Piner, Jess Monica, and Karen Bayly.
Graphic sexual content is included within this anthology.
Blurb for The Beasts of Hank's Wood
Joe Schola III is the eighteen-year-old son of Joseph Schola Junior, a fire-and-brimstone preaching Fundamentalist televangelist. While young Joe is far less homophobic than his father, he is struggling to come to terms with his own sexual orientation. Will Joe dare accept the invitation to become part of a clan of shapeshifters, and will he accept the love being offered to him by the handsome fox shifter Lovell Azarola?
Read the previous snippet here:
Dad was none other than Joe Schola Junior, an ultra-conservative
religious icon. Every Sunday morning, thousands of viewers tuned in to the Joe
Schola Show on television or the Joe Schola Hour on Christian radio stations to
hear Fox News-approved rhetoric about homosexuality ushering in the Apocalypse
and free-thinking females destroying the family. The same terrible talking
points were used by televangelists long before I was born. That such hateful
rhetoric always has an audience dismayed me. My father and I disagreed on
nearly everything, but I never spoke out except to occasionally tell him to
dial back the fire and brimstone. I said people would either be turned off by
always being told they're going to hell or scared to hear what he had to say.
I couldn't bring myself to tell my father that the son he pinned all his
hopes on was gay. In spite of everything, I loved my dad. Also, I thought
praying hard enough would wash away my attraction to other men and make me
interested in women instead.
