John F. Karr, The Bay Area Reporter, San Francisco: This is a classic: Jack Fritscher's Stand By Your Man. I've expressed my admiration for Fritscher's heat before. I'm even quoted on the back cover of this new book, and I'll stand by what I said: "Jack Fritscher has roamed the furthest corners of sexuality, and can lead you on head trips unequaled by any other gay writer I know. You may resist, as I did, some of the aggression, machismo, and sexual practices only to be won over by Fritscher's prose.... He writes with sweat and wit, dirt and desire. Fritscher is a knee to the groin."
