stories
Chelsea Station Editions, 2019

Until My Heart Stops
intimate writings
Chelsea Station Editions, 2015

The result is a searing personal and poignant memoir of an artist finding his voice during difficult times. Once again Currier doesn’t shy away from revealing personal moments and emotions, this time his own, including his love and retreat from the theater, his grappling with boyfriends and long-term relationships, and the details into his own medical diagnosis of HCM—hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition of excessive thickening of the heart muscle for which there is no apparent cause or cure

What Comes Around
a novel of linked stories
Chelsea Station Editions, 2012

A quirky, touching, and unique novel of a single gay man’s quest to find a meaningful relationship. Written over a period of twenty-five years, these fifteen linked short stories—many of which have appeared in literary magazines and anthologies—exploit the narrator’s wit and heightened self-examination by utilizing a second person point of view technique. Covering four decades of misadventures of looking for the right man, Currier’s unnamed narrator bumps through blind dates, break-ups, unexpected seductions, tragedies, and imperfect affairs. Currier was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship for the stories included in What Comes Around.

















The Third Buddha
a novel of 9/11 and Afghanistan
Chelsea Station Editions, 2011

Like Currier’s previous work, the author once again targets the big themes of modern gay life in his new novel: identity, faith, homophobia, romance, and the complexity of relationships, but at the heart of The Third Buddha are the little acts of random kindness that continue to astonish in times of crisis and war. Jameson Currier expands his richly detailed storytelling to an international level in this new novel, weaving together the intertwining stories of the search for a missing journalist in the Bamiyan region of Afghanistan with a young man’s search for his older brother in Manhattan in the aftermath of 9-11. The result is a sweeping, multi-cultural novel of what it means to be a gay citizen of the world.

















The Wolf at the Door
a novel set in a haunted gay-owned guesthouse in New Orleans
Chelsea Station Editions, 2010

Ghosts? Angels? Hallucinations? When a death occurs at Le Petite Paradis, a guesthouse in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the spirit world becomes unsettled, or so Avery Greene Dalyrymple III, the co-owner believes. The son and grandson of Southern evangelists, Avery is also an overworked and overwrought middle-aged gay man, a cynical “big-time drinker and sinner” fairly certain he can maintain a family of “other deviants and delinquents stumbling along Bourbon Street” to keep him company.  But Avery is also the only person in contact with the spirit world on his property—ghosts from the house’s origins during the 1820s—and he must use the history left behind from another ghost—a gay man from the 1970s—to find a way to restore peace to his household and rejuvenate his faith.














The Haunted Heart and Other Tales

Still Dancing
new and selected stories
Lethe Press 2008
Chelsea Station Editions, 2011

In Still Dancing author Jameson Currier brings together twenty short stories spanning three decades of the impact of the AIDS epidemic on the gay community.

Les Fantomes
short stories about AIDS

Desire, Lust, Passion, Sex
stories
Green Candy Press, 2004
Chelsea Station Editions, 2013

Desire, Lust, Passion, Sex brings together nineteen stories by Jameson Currier—including six never-before-published works as well as the author’s widely praised short fiction previously published in literary journals, Web sites, and award-winning anthologies such as Best Gay Erotica, Best American Erotica, and Men on Men. In this new collection, the author meticulously details the search for love, romance, and partnership between gay men, and his characteristically spare prose brings into sharp relief the sometimes maddening traits that constitute a person’s romantic ideal and shows how the quest for a meaningful relationship can transform—or derail—the course of our lives.















Where the Rainbow Ends
a novel
Overlook Press 1998 and 2000
Chelsea Station Editions, 2011

A powerful, compelling, and heartfelt first novel of a young gay man's quest for faith, family, and understanding during the early years of the AIDS epidemic.

“Currier is adept at drawing a fi ne line between the erotic and the tragic, and at telling stories that ‘although personal, are also the stories of our community.’ Where the Rainbow Ends feels like the fictionalized history of a generation of gay men.”
     Erik Burns, The New York Times Book Review

Chelsea Station Editions, 2011
Penguin, 1994
Viking, 1993
