Upon A Midnight Clear shatters the traditional view of Christmas and instead portrays what it's like to be gay during the most inescapable holiday season. In this stirring anthology of tales filled with holiday cheer and chaos, acclaimed authors, including Greg Herren, Felice Picano and Jim Grimsley bring to life the heartache, struggles, breakthroughs and bonds of love that are never more apparent that during Christmas. This collection provides what Christmas has always been missing for gay men - the comforts of tradition. Stories in Upon A Midnight Clear include: "Our Family's Things" -an abandoned lover and father is left to fend for himself "Comfort and Joy" -a man who has met the man of his dreams finally comes out to his family and himself "Secret Family Recipe" -a mother plots to poison her son's live-in lover at Christmas lunch "Skating" - an ex-boyfriend tries to help his old lover move on "In the City of Warm Red Light" - a gay holiday party ignites a straight woman's insecurities

"This Standout Collection Of Holiday-Themed Short Stories at last brings great queer tidings of comfort and joy into the festive season by celebrating found families and new lovers, exploring new traditions and fond memories, and adding dazzling rainbow lights to the trimming of the tree."
