Superheroes (Homoerotica)

STARbooks Press presents a call for Superheroes, to be edited by Eric Summers.

Sex-starved Superheroes are alive and horny at STARbooks Press.

Did you ever wonder why superheroes wear tights? Is it to make them more aerodynamic? Do they want you to know how excited they are to come to the rescue? Or is a one-piece garment easier to remove? For whatever reason, there is hardly anyone alive who has not fantasized about a
superhero coming to the rescue and fulfilling his desires.

I am seeking well-written stories that are erotic, not pornographic. I am interested in superheroes who are rewarded for their bravery, talents and skills. Some of them have extraordinary powers such as the ability to fly, run or swim at the speed of light, turn into fire, take on another form, be invisible, shrink or expand. Some have sidekicks, and some have fun with their comrades. Whatever makes them super finds its way into the bedroom.

I want well-developed characters, plots, situations, settings, and internal consistency. Humor is greatly appreciated as these characters are meant to have fun and enjoy themselves. We ask that you do not write about popular, known, or copyrighted comic book or television characters. Your superheroes must be your own, original creation.

We are also open to accepting original art work or comics featuring gay superheroes.

Feel free to query me about the thinking you may have about a story for this anthology at:


Submit your query to in the body of an email - no attachments please. Include a short bio, your name, postal and e-mail addresses and a 5 paragraph excerpt of your story. Indicate whether or not your submission has been previously published and, if so, where
and when. You don't need to sell your story in the letter; your work will speak for itself. If your query is accepted, I will be in contact with you about submitting the complete work. The end product should be no more than 8 pages of single spaced 12 pt. type. Be sure your query has been proofed and edited. Sloppy submissions and poorly written stories will not be considered.

Complete call posted Star Book Press.

Deadline: December 31 2006
