Hare solves his family’s problems by tricking rich and lazy Bear in this funny, energetic version of an old slave story. With roots in American slave tales, Tops & Bottoms celebrates the trickster tradition of using one’s wits to overcome hardship. “As usual, Stevens’ animal characters, bold and colorful, are delightful. . . . It’s all wonderful fun, and the book opens, fittingly, from top to bottom instead of from side to side, making it perfect for story-time sharing.”--Booklist

Gay men reveal their preference—and the reasons behind it! Gay Men and Anal Eroticism: Tops, Bottoms, and Versatiles is a no-holds-barred examination of one of society's most persistent taboos. In a remarkably candid collection of frank and forthright interviews, 21 gay men talk about the role anal sex plays in their lives and relationships and their choices to act as insertive (“top”) or receptive (“bottom”) partners—or both (“versatile”). Ranging in age from 21 to 65, the men discuss the reasons behind (and consequences of) their choices; how they define their sexual roles (and how those roles are defined by gay society); issues of power, trust, and vulnerability; and the concept (in both straight and gay society) that tops and bottoms are socially and morally unequal. These unique interviews, conducted by the author in the Boston and Provincetown areas, celebrate choice in gay men's sexuality while debating whether preference is genetically based or socially formed—a debate largely ignored in social science studies. The men interviewed—including gay porn icon Cole Tucker—discuss perceptions muddied by stereotypes, preconceived notions, and exaggerated scenarios, and the meanings gay men assign to anal sex, including dominance and submission roles related to masculine/feminine, aggressive/passive implications. The interviews also cover each subject's personal history as a gay man, safe sex in the AIDS era, childhood traumas, first-time sexual encounters, loves, desires, and obsessions. The interviews for Gay Men and Anal Eroticism provide insights that are equal parts thoughtful and outrageous, humorous and heartbreaking: Aaron, age 24: “I sort of fell into this image of myself as being a very aggressive bottom, a guy who knew what he wanted and who didn't want any wimps applying.” Danny, 21: “There's a mindset about being a top … it's kinda like maintaining the ship.” Sam, 36: “I hate to say it, but I'm a bottom … I don't like to be identified like that because I feel it turns me into something all the way from my feet up to my head.” Eddie, 42: “I guess I enjoy more being a top than a bottom because I haven't found a good top.” and Cole Tucker: “A physical act doesn't really make you a top or a bottom. It's a function, an organic function of what you do. It's the dynamics of where you come from.” The revealing disclosures of Gay Men and Anal Eroticism show equality in man-to-man sex to be as varied as the number of individuals who pursue it. Addressing traditional misunderstandings and misconceptions of gay men as either “limp-wrested fairies” or masculine “trade,” the book uncovers that there is much more to this complex issue than personal preference.

For generations, technical market analysts have relied on the Wyckoff method for understanding price/volume interactions–a breakthrough technique created by Richard D. Wyckoff, one of the most influential traders in stock market history. More recently, many technical analysts have also applied the Lowry Analysis, an exceptionally powerful approach to understanding the forces of supply and demand that are the starting point for all macro-analysis. ¿ Now, for the first time, two leaders at Lowry Research discuss how to combine these methods. Drawing on more than 45 years of experience as technical analysts, Richard A. Dickson and Tracy Knudsen introduce a uniquely powerful, objective, and quantifiable approach to applying traditional price/volume analysis. By understanding their techniques, investors can gain insights unavailable through other technical methodologies, and uncover subtle indications of emerging trend shifts before other methods can reveal them.

Bottom Central by Kate Dominic She has her own dungeon. She’s wearing two pairs of high quality handcuffs in her left belt loop and a little whip on her keyring. She looks like a quiet little butch dyke, she can tell at a glance who has the hots for whom, and she has a penchant for “innocently” shocking people into doing what she wants. Find out what happens in a small Midwestern town when the only leather bar in town has too few tops, and a very kinky dominatrix who loves doing gay men. Mama Told Me Not to Come by Carole Archer Polly had a fascination with spanking. When she saw a vacancy for a maid at Lord Grantham’s stately home, she begged her mother to let her go and work there. Her mother was reluctant as she knew her only daughter would be subject to the discipline that was commonplace in the home, something she had always shielded Polly from. Eventually, she agreed, but will Polly find being spanked is all she hoped it would be, or will she end up wishing she’d listened to her mother? Experience Points by Bertram Fox It’s called fantasy live role-playing, but sometimes the fantasies aren’t just about dragons.

A wonderful night like that has to be worth at least 300 experience points. Tricked by Medea Mor Brooke is hot for Stuart’s cock. She wants nothing more than to hold it in her mouth and lavish all her attention on it. Unfortunately for her, Stuart has other plans. He gives her a playful belting and flogging, then expresses a wish to cane her – something Brooke has always resisted because she fears the pain. Who gets his or her own way? Or will there be a happy ending for both of them? These stories have also been published in Tops and Bottoms.
