“[Editor R.] Jackson’s anthology of 21 titillating quickies covers a variety of genres, but all the stories embrace those who like to live and love large. … a delicious panoply with something for every bear.” – Publishers Weekly
“The stories in this anthology are a must-read for any guy who’s ever felt left out of the gay scene because of his size or his desire for a man of size. This wonderfully curated collection includes works that are sweet, sweaty, and just plain hot.” — Dan Oliverio, author of The Round World
