"When I pulled Ganymede #5 out of its box, I held a spine nearly an inch thick, healthy for an annual but unheard-of for a quarterly. And when I reached the end of its 344 pages, my head was spinning. Nothing remotely like Ganymede has been seen in the gay community in my lifetime. After crucial essays by Edmund White and Oscar Wilde, each section, presented with style and snap, leads you deep into gay male experiences of genuine interest and pungency. Ganymede has already been praised for its textual importance and visual splendor, but with this issue, it rises to real historic grandeur. No literate gay man can afford to miss it."
