  1. Paul Fahey here, editor of THE OTHER MAN anthology published by JMS Books. As many readers and reviewers have said, there's something for everyone in THE OTHER MAN: 21 Writers Speak Candidly About Sex, Love, Infidelity, & Moving On. And plenty of romance. But don't take my word for it. Here's what other readers and writers have said.

    “Full of bad behavior and ugly emotions. Contains some fine truths and excellent storytelling.”---Christopher Bram, author of Gods and Monsters and Eminent Outlaws.

    “By turns sprightly, poignant, piquant, sexy, scary, keen, naïve, heartbreaking. ”---Richard Stevenson, Lambda Award-winning author of the Don Strachey private eye novels.

    “Impassioned, witty, powerful voices examine infidelity and its effects on love, trust and truth”---Dennis Palumbo, psychotherapist and author of Night Terrors: A Daniel Rinaldi Mystery.

    “Something for everyone regardless of your sexual orientation. A delight to read such great writing.”---Regina Anavy, Author of Out Of Cuba.

    “You’ll find a lot of entertainment in the many emotions of Paul Alan Fahey’s extraordinary anthology, The Other Man…comprised of memoir—personal essays from some of our best and brightest writers—regarding what happened to their relationships when they faced challenges from the other man. And, as expected, the pieces run the gamut from hilarious to heartbreaking.”---Jerry Wheeler, Out in Print

    “I devoured it. An absolutely addicting book.”---Kilian Melloy, Assistant Arts Editor, EDGE Media Network.

    “Every essay is fascinating—and what a great cause!” ---Anne R. Allen, author of the The Camilla Randall Mysteries, and host of the award winning Anne R. Allen’s Blog.
