David Bergman (born March 13, 1950)

David Bergman (born March 13, 1950) is a Professor of English at Towson State University, and is the author of Gaiety Transfigured: Gay Representation in American Literature and the editor of Camp Grounds: Style and Homosexuality. Bergman has published poetry in The Paris Review, The New Criterion, and The New Republic. He has edited a collection of Edmund White's essays entitled The Burning Library, and is presently working on a history of the Violet Quill group. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland. 

Karl Woelz is the Lambda Literary Award-winning co-editor of the Men on Men series begun by the late George Stambolian. Woelz's Introduction and searing Afterword to M2m New Literary Fiction volume has already begun some heated debate about the state of literature in the gay and lesbian community. Woelz pulls no punches in taking the publishing industry to task for giving the country mediocre options when it comes to GLBT books.

Amazon: Men on Men 2000: Best New Gay Fiction

Now spanning eight volumes and two decades, the Men on Men series continues to showcase the remarkable talent of gay literary writers. These venerable collections of short stories have become a gay literary institution, launching the careers of several, now luminary, writers--including Joe Keenan, Christopher Bram, Dale Peck, and David Leavitt. True to its tradition, Men on Men 2000 brings bright new literary talent together with established writers--such as Edmund White and Brian Bouldrey--to offer a poignant collection of gay fiction that is provocative and illuminating at every turn. This diverse group of voices etches an indelible portrait of gay life at the dawn of the twenty-first century, addressing issues such as identity and gender stereotypes, the power of love, the lingering shadow of AIDS, and the new adventure of fatherhood.

Brian Bouldrey
