OVERVIEW: The OCP edition of Jack Ketchum's "Broken On The Wheel of Sex: The Jerzy Livingston Years" is the most complete edition of the "Stroup" stories ever collected together. Each story also features new afterwords by Jack Ketchum. These stories, written from 1976 to 1981, and appearing in various men s magazines and other outlets, offer Ketchum readers a look into this author s formulative years. This is where Jack Ketchum honed his writing craft that has become so well known with his novels The Girl Next Door, The Crossing, Off Season and The Lost. Collected here is his character simply known as the Stroup stories written under the pseudonym Jerzy Livingston, which are rare and difficult to locate almost thirty years after the original publications gave them life. I've called these the Jerzy Livingston years because over half of them were written under that name and the rest under my real one. Somehow Jerzy seems more appropriate for this collection. My adoption of that particular pseudonym was both a joke a play on words and a nod to a very good writer, which I hoped some day to be. Jack Ketchum, from the author s introduction. FROM THE PUBLISHER: Ketchum takes us from the hardcore times of the '70's and early 80's when free sex, love, and everything related in between was a dream living on borrowed time. But after reading Ketchum's stories, what a dream it was. A total of nineteen stories appear here, some published for the first time or virtually impossible to find at all can now be found in Broken On The Wheel of Sex: The Jerzy Livingston Years in this newly revised edition. Available in a Signed Limited Hard Cover Edition. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jack Ketchum is the pseudonym for a former actor, teacher, literary agent, lumber salesman, and soda jerk. He is also a former flower child and baby boomer who figures that in 1956 Elvis, dinosaurs and horror probably saved his life. His first novel, OFF SEASON, an updating of the Sawney Beane story, prompted the Village Voice to publicly scold its publisher in print for publishing violent pornography. He has always wondered what they would think of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. His short story THE BOX won a 1994 Bram Stoker Award from HWA and he has written several novels, the latest of which, Off Season, OFFSPRING, THE LOST, JOYRIDE, STRANGLEHOLD. RED, and a short story collection PEACEABLE KINGDOM. All items are packed very well for delivery. Bookseller Inventory # 011481
