Tough Guys

Tough Guys - This early paperback anthology is a much more substantial volume than several that I've bought lately in ebook - lots of stories, and several really good ones. Plus, this anthology has Larry Townsend's amazing and hot "Stockholm Syndrome" which is the earliest m/m stockholm syndrome story I ever read and still my favorite.

In particular, the Aaron Travis story is disturbing and excellent, and I also really enjoyed the M. Christian 'What Ails you'.
