A message came in to writer of gay male stories habu from his editor noting that he'd had two lighthouse-based stories published, "The Lighthouse Keeper" and "The Whisper Man," that had done well and did he have any more lighthouse stories in his portfolio? He didn't, but a year later we have four new stories to add to the existing two in the To the Lighthouse anthology. Some of the lighthouses used for locations in this collection are real ones, some are real ones moved to different locations. Some, as in "Escaping the Lighthouse" and "The Lighthouse Keeper," have personal connections to the author. One, "The Whisper Man," is taken from legend, and one, "Lighthouse in the Desert" isn't really a lighthouse at all. What habu has striven to do with this collection is to take a very specific setting, a lighthouse, and provide a variety of gay male literature themes and applications of location to stir the pleasure and interest of the reader.
