The best entry is Dale Cameron Lowry’s “The Whipping Master,” about a student aroused by his schoolmaster’s punishment. Publisher’s Weekly

Twenty gay erotic tales (most original to this volume) set in the good old naughty days of the Victorian era. Return to an era of foggy back alleys and Macassar oil in every man’s hair. Editor Matthew Bright has assembled a glorious cadre of authors–including such award-winning storytellers as Felice Picano, Tom Cardamone, and Jeff Mann–and readers will take delight in following the trysts of 19th century noblemen, servants, and rakes.
