Original stories strongly preferred, though a couple of reprints might be used. Reprints must solely be owned by the author and must not have appeared in print during the past three years. BGEv3 is not a “themed” anthology. All genres, kinks, and fantasies are fair game, just so long as the work is intensely erotic and exceedingly literary. M/M or multiple M/M only. Please send only your best and hottest work for this prestigious collection. Absolutely no scenes of rape, bestiality, incest, or underage sex, nor any references to the same. Penetration scenes after the year 1985 must include a condom. Do not send stories that are currently being considered elsewhere.

Send a double-spaced Times or Times New Roman 12-point font Word document to email@example.com. Indent the first line of each paragraph half an inch and double space the entire document (regular double spacing, do not add extra lines between paragraphs or do any other irregular spacing). U.S. grammar (double quotation marks around dialogue, etc.) required. Only once space after a period, comma, etc. Please do not submit more than one story. Include real name/pen name/address/ 50 word-or-under, third person bio.
