Meet Jason Fury:blond, blue-eyed and up for anything. Perennial favorites in the gay press, Fury's sexiest tales are collected in book form for the first time.From the Author:
"Eric's Body" was published in l995 by Badboy Books and became an overnight sensation.
It had taken me nearly three years to find an agent. My manuscript was sent out over l20 times and each time it was rejected. Most agents rejected my book with no comment. Several were outraged that I had dared to submit to them a collection of stories that centered around male-male love. One agent called me and said he wished I was dead, along with every other living "fag" because we were abominations.
Luckily, I finally found an agent, he found Richard Kasak, a maverick publisher who specialized in high-class erotica and I was on my way. My book went through printing after printing and became Richard Kasak's best-selling book that year and the year after.
Even then, my tome ran into countless censorship problems. Some owners of bookstores that sold gay books were arrested for peddling "pornography." I discovered that stories could deal graphically with love between male and female, as best-selling author, Jackie Collins, and others proved. But to write about two men enjoying each other sexually was tantamount to imprisonment of both author and seller.
But my next book, THE ROPE ABOVE, THE BED BELOW, became another best-seller and once more went through numerous printings. Both this book and ERIC'S BODY were re-issued in 2005 by the Author's Guild of America's prestigious Back-in-Print series of American classics. Once more, they proved a hit with a new generation of readers. In fact, the Author's Guild is re-issuing ERIC'S BODY for the third time in early 2013--this time as one of its very first e-books. So the little book that at first couldn't find a publisher is proving to be a hearty survivor. This could also serve to be a lesson to any scribe facing defeat in getting his work published.
Since then, I've written numerous other novels under various pen names. Still writing as Jason Fury, my books include HIS EYES WERE DARK, HE LICKED HIS LIPS, THE KISS OF KING KONG, THE SECRET OF JIMMY X, SCREAMS OF PAN, NIGHTS OF FURY. My novels and stories of horror have been written my pen name of 'Andrea D'Allasandra.' They include: DEATH HOUSE, THE MASTER OF HELL MOUNTAIN, HORROR HOUSE, HOUSE OF THE SCREAMNG CLOWNS and THE CREAKING DOOR. As 'Kandy Kristmas,' my only book so far is, DOOFUS THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS BOY.
I'm now finishing up my second memoir, I, A MAN, in which I describe my year of on-line dating in the city of Asheville--and the 70 or more men I came to know intimately.
