Trysts is the first collection of dark fantasy fiction with gay characters by Steve Berman.

Berman has assembled thirteen (thus the triskadecollection of the subtitle) evocative stories, all of which revolve around the central theme of the 'tryst.' But these passionate hookups and romantic encounters range from the eerie to the horrifying to the wondrous.

Trysts offers readers dark and quirky tales from a distinctive voice in gay fiction.

From the Publisher:

Trysts has received two nominations (Best Other Work and Best Short Story) for the 2002 Spectrum Awards, which are sponsored by the Gaylactic Network and created to honor works in science fiction, fantasy, and horror that deal positively with queer characters, themes, and issues.

From the Author:

When was your last tryst? I often wonder... those ever-so brief encounters tend to last in memory far longer than the time spent in the embrace. Often my imagination revises past passions, not so much improving them but changing things... what if the boy spent the night, what would we say in the morning? Or if I watched him inhale the smoke from a cigarette hungrily, like he was feeding on each wisp? Fantasy, in my mind, extends beyond the simple act of wanting another's body next to yours.

The curse of being a writer works as a blessing for readers - my imagination never lets anything in my past rest, and now and then something worthwhile is put on the page. My hope is that, when you explore all thirteen stories in Trysts, emotions are touched and some of your own distant affairs are remembered.
