A few years ago I was standing outside a bar with some friends of mine over a drink. I remember telling a story of what happened to me once and that's when my friend said "John you need to write a book" That really made me think and not long after I started to write "My Story." I always thought my life were never boring but rather exciting since a young age. Actually it was a mind pleasure to sit down and go thru it again as I wrote it. "Live your life as if you stole it was always one of my favorite motto" One of my questions was; how much did I want to reveal and to what extend? Well if I am going to write my life and stories, then might as well go all the way was my answer. So I wasn't shy writing in explicit my sexual experiences, drugs and alcohol use. Some of it could be shocking, but it is the truth. For privacy all names have been changed, if some of my ex wives read this book they will be so mad that the least I could of done is to protect their identity. You will find a mix of steamy sex, love, romance, part thriller and adventurous.

I don’t know how long I slept, time no longer held any meaning. The lust for blood awakened me, always images of that. Rufus Hobster is a vampire. He writes poetry. Through his poetry Rufus shares what it feels like not being human, what it feels like to kill a human and what it feels like to love a human. La Petite Mort is his recollection of the early days when he first became a vampire, a time when he was nothing more than a rabid beast. It also concerns his life years later when he meets Elise, The Girl Who Synchronised Death. Despite the way Elise makes God weep, Rufus cannot leave her side and it is not until she abandons him that his psychosis guides his life more so than the virus running through his veins. Inside my head music played a reminder of everything I had lost, and I fell asleep weeping lines of red too frightened to call upon God for help. La Petite Mort spans a number of genres, including dark romance, horror, philosophy and fantasy. It will appeal to fans of thought-provoking and gothic poetry, as well as fans of Eli’s previous books – Cruel, Four Days, Neophyte and his first poetry collection The Lines.

Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public assembles drawings from memory of spaces in New York City where a public sexual encounter occurred. A project created in collaboration between Carlos Motta & Joshua Lubin-Levy,it features contributions from an intergenerational group of over 60gay men. Conceived as an atlas of queer affection, Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public proposes a subjective blueprint of the city, one that values not simply the space "as is," but how it has been performed and engaged,highlighting the fundamental connection between public space and queer life. The collected drawings,depicting sites extending from a residential rooftop to The Rambles in Central Park, remind us that public sex is not exclusively about a personal pursuit of pleasure-they also contain the seeds of historical social and political action that have brought together communities of gay men.Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public also asks questions challenging us to expand our vision for queer politics: What if our politics were rebuilt around a broader notion of intimacy rather than individuality? Can we foster, rather than police,the trust and affection inherent to desire and pleasure? Should equality be about difference, rather than assimilation?This book includes a preface by Forever & Today, Inc. Co-Curators Ingrid Chu & Savannah Gorton, a conversation between Carlos Motta & Joshua Lubin-Levy, and an essay by Joel Czarlinsky. Also assembled here are a series of short responses to the question "Does public sex matter?" by authors Aiken Forrett, Ann Pellegrini & Janet R. Jakobsen, Eileen Myles,Gordon Brent Ingram, Jill H. Casid, Johan Andersson, John Paul Ricco, Jose Esteban Munoz, Kate Bornstein, Katherine Franke, and Tim Dean. Petite Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public is commissioned by Forever &Today, Inc.

Un matin, Charles décide de partir en montagne comme il en a l’habitude. Alors qu’il arrive au sommet de la colline du marronnier au pendu, il sombre dans un trou noir qui le fait se réveiller au milieu d’un paysage lunaire, quasi désertique. La stupeur le gagne : lui qui souhaitait s’évader un moment de son quotidien ne pensait pas quitter pour autant la civilisation. Est-ce la mort ? Un rêve ? S’agit-il d’une téléportation ? Au beau milieu de ce décor calciné, il aperçoit un semblant de village, comme tout droit sorti d’une catastrophe. Les pérégrinations du héros ne font que commencer... Un spectacle effarant, une atmosphère tant inqualifiable que surprenante, des découvertes étranges : à coup sûr, ce roman puise dans les ressorts du fantastique sans toutefois compromettre le réalisme. Il est à l’image des situations traversées par le héros : incroyablement singulier. Malgré la prolifération de scénarios de fin du monde qui peuvent lasser, le lecteur ne sera pas déçu car pris au dépourvu.

Sexy in the city: Howard Huang's anime-inspired glamour girls When photographer Howard Huang began shopping his fashion book around New York in 2002 he had no idea he was about to become the master of urban photography. Back then, Huang, originating from Taiwan, thought "urban girls" were just women who lived in the city, explaining, "English is my second language; I was still learning." Nonetheless, when the editor of Black Men magazine asked if he knew how to shoot sexy women he said, "Sure!" and set about staging the magazine's voluptuous singers, models, and actresses in fantasies inspired by his love of comic books and anime. His composite photos feature exotic locales, lush interiors, or the neon-washed nighttime streets of Manhattan. His shapely heroines, including singer Jacki-O, actress Vida Guerra, and reality TV stars Hoopz, Deelishis, and Risky Jones, escape on sleek motorcycles; rob banks with guns drawn and Halliburton cases spilling money; brandish swords like Japanese assassins; conjure fire; hunt big game, and generally kick ass while displaying their own generous posteriors in photos reminiscent of video games. "The trick is to rework an image to enhance my vision, without drawing attention to cheesy Photoshop special effects," says Huang, who studied under advertising photography master Michel Tcherevkoff. The result is a unique marriage of the new pictorialism with classic glamour photography, and a look at the little known niche market of African-American and Latina bikini models, collectively known as "urban girls."

International sex appeal A fresh collection of today's most titillating nudes around the world Following on the heels of our highly popular New Erotic Photography, this second installment features entirely new photographs by 50 of the world's most intriguing talents. The images document the changing photographic media as much as the evolution of erotic photography since the previous book was published. Over half the photographers now use digital exclusively, while those who do use film are likely to use Polaroid, and primitive cameras like the Lomo and Holga, experimenting with film for its special effects. The edition presents 35 new photographers, including Eric Bonzi, Cyril Torrent, Jo Schwab, Yossi Loloi, Tomohide Ikeya, Frederic Fontenoy, Andrew Pashis, Jan Hronsky, and Chase Lisbon. Drawn from Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Japan, France, Russia, the Czech Republic, and the U.S., respectively, these new stars make for a thrilling international overview of the latest and greatest in erotic imagery. Several outstanding women are also introduced in this edition, including erotic film star Kimberly Kane, Colombian expat Alejandra Guerrero, skate-boarder and heavy metal rocker Magdalena Wosinska, and self-portraitist Erica Simone.
