BOOK NERD :: Stories for Men / Tales for Males – Contents

I’ve posted these books before, but wanted to make an entry for the tables of contents for each, in case there’s someone who is searching for works by one of the authors. I’m posting photos of the contents now, but will transcribe them later so search engines can find the text. Also, as mentioned before, I’ve seen an ad for “Tales for Males” in one of my old men’s magazines, so I’ll scan that and put it here as well.
