La Petit Mort - poem
The Clint Folsom erotic gay murder mystery series.
Habu reports that he enjoyed writing this series. His premise was a no-holds-barred treatment of an unabashedly promiscuous, laid-back, “good-guy” homicide cop with movie-star looks .
(Clint's) love of being ‘topped’ is so ingrained within his being that
each sex act is with an abandon and longing that makes men ‘feel like
kings’. If you weren’t a ‘sub’ before, you would wish to be one by the
end of the book. Once I finished reading it, I rushed to buy the rest of the
Clint Folsom series. Hot Stuff!
From a review by Kpasa
“I Met A Man” is a beautifully written bittersweet story that captures the essence of the relationship between Clifford and Erol in some 70 pages all the while seamlessly inter-weaving plot and sub-plots, primary and secondary characters and their stories, feelings and relationships. The story is masterfully told from multiple points of view, that of Clifford, Erol and Rick (Clifford’s good friend), with such fluidity that the transition from one character’s perspective to another is virtually imperceptible.
In this very interesting anthology of ten stories, habu and Sabb use what they call the 'back-and-forth, building section style' to tell stories about the male/male relationship. In many of the stories, one author takes the point of view of one protagonist and the other comes back from the point of view of the other, so you get to see the situation from inside the head of each. This is actually very exciting to read. The situations involved are complex and thought-provoking, the sex is explicit, and the stories are cleverly crafted for the reader's enjoyment. Each story provides a scenario that leads the reader to 'see' a different aspect of two men in an sexual relationship: nostalgia, miscommunication, jealousy, sadness, trust ... each of these is examined in beautifully crafted prose.
Cigars! - Rainbow Reviews - Feb 2009 - 4 stars
If you haven't ever considered the erotic potential of a cigar, then you absolutely must read this book. If you just like smoking hot sex (double entendre intended), this book will not disappoint.
Angel in the Barn - by Dark Angels Reviews
Shabbu is a collaborative anthology of prolific Gay authors Sabb of Australia and habu of the U.S. The two were given the premise of an angel in a barn window, a shared key phrase, and an incomplete suicide attempt, and asked to pen a short story containing these elements. The result is the two stories contained in ANGEL IN THE BARN, and demonstrates how two writers can approach a similar premise with exciting, yet completely different consequences. Sabb's version is highly romantic in more than one sense, as both the narrator and the subject are romance novel authors, and his narrator quickly becomes romantically involved with the barn's inhabitant. Habu's story, in keeping with his usual writing style, is abrupt, harsh, and in-your-face. Sensitive readers may find the sexual brutishness in the Habu story perturbing.
