  • One of These Things Is Not Like the Other (2005) -- Winner 2005 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Men's Mystery
    "You’re your own man," Jake Barnes tells himself upon arrival at his father’s isolated cabin in the Oregon woods. "You are yourself." But in the strange world of One of These Things Is Not Like the Other, manhood and self are not so easily understood. Or trusted. Quadruplet brothers. Raised in rural seclusion by their identical, namesake father. Now in their twenties, the Jake Barnes brothers are shocked by their father’s sudden suicide. More surprises come in the video he leaves behind, announcing that one of them is an unrelated outsider, and daring his sons to uncover the truth of their birth. From across the U.S. the brothers converge to find a woman who may be their mother, but twisted lust, murderous secrets, and shifting identities threaten their lives along the way.

  • Execution, Texas: 1987 (1997)
    A sharply original coming-of-age story about a 17-year-old in the small town of Execution, Texas, whose struggles with his identity are complicated and complemented by those around him. This story introduces a startlingly original new voice that shows a depth and complexity of character, time, and place that far exceed expectations of a debut novel.

  • Strategic Sex: Why They Won't Keep It in the Bedroom  (1999)
    With chapters from Ron Athey, Scott O'Hara, Tristan Taormino, Michael Scarce, and Kevin Killian, Strategic Sex: Why They Won't Keep It in the Bedroom explores sex in public--performed, depicted, or discussed outside the “appropriate” bedrooms and doctor's offices. This book examines why sex is brought into the spotlight, defying mainstream social codes of etiquette and obscenity. Sex activists and queer theorists will discover wide-ranging opinions and personal experiences from scholars, activists, artists, educators, sex workers, and pornographers who explore--and sometimes demonstrate--why they won't leave sex in the bedroom.
    Surprisingly moving, humorous, erotic, and intelligent, Strategic Sex shares episodes of powerfully affected lives, thoughts, and behaviors. Sex is revealed as more than merely a blind, animal instinct but a tool which can be harnessed to specific ends. The chapters in Strategic Sex discusses interesting and informative topics by such individuals as:

    • Carol A. Queen--“Porno-formance: Some Notes on Sex as Art”

    • Jaron Kanegson--“Girlfriends, Boyfriends, Dykes, or Fags?”

    • Lawrence Schimel--“Pumping Iron, Pumping Cocks: Sex at the Gym”

    • Marti Hohmann with Annie Sprinkle--“Interview with a Metamorphosexual”

    • Rafael Katz--“Moby Dick in the China Sea: Great White Pornography in Taiwan”

    • Sally Trash--“Making Porn Videos Work for Lesbians”

    • T. A. King--“Scenes from a Culture of Masochism”

    The contributors--heterosexual, homosexual, male, female, and gray areas in between--relate and imagine ways of harnessing sexual energy. While some reveal goals as noble as rape prevention, improving women's health care, fighting racism, overcoming grief, and community building, you will find how others illustrate sex utilized for self-promotion or manipulation of groups and individuals. With a unique mix of fiction, analysis, performance texts, and personal essays, Strategic Sex ultimately presents sex as a powerful influence on dominant power structures within cultures and will make you question how sexuality influences your life--in both public and private places.
