For all those who think love's gone the way of the 8-track tape comes a collection of new gay fiction designed to reignite their belief in love and romance. Follow the travails of a dog walker enchanted with his new client, a restaurant owner who catches the eye of his most loyal customer, a blind date fix-up, and other seekers of the lost flame as they stumble upon romance and a possible chance at love. Showcasing new work from some of today's best known gay writers, including Trebor Healey, Felice Picano, Joel Derfner, Andrew Holleran, and Greg Herren, the stories in Fool for Love are a funny, sweet, and sometimes wrenching reminder of the joy romance brings to the human heart.

Don't skip editor Timothy J. Lambert's introduction, in which, despite describing himself as someone whose "most successful relationship to date has been with my dog", he reveals himself to be an unreconstructed romantic.

And that's what this collection is all about: romance in its myriad forms, romance expected and unexpected, romance beginning, blooming and ending. The characters range from teenagers just coming out (Josh Helmin's Like No One's Watching) to the fifty-something men "like a quartet of maiden aunts" of Andrew Holleran's Two Kinds of Rapture. (And may I say here that this anthology has a nice mix of writers: "grand old men" of gay fiction such as Holleran and Felice Picano; younger, yet relatively established writers like Greg Herren and Rob Byrnes; and never-before-published authors like 'Nathan Burgoine (whose Heart just might break yours) .

Toss-up for best opening line:

"Ending up in the trunk of a car headed for Houston was not what Bobby'd had in mind when he came to New Orleans." (Trunk, by Trevor Healey)

"It was the morning after my boyfriend told me he wanted to seek freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ that I decided to knit the brain." (De Anima, by Joel Derfner)

'Fess up - you want to read both of those from the get-go, don't you? But read them all. I don't think there's a bad story in the bunch.
