Peter Sotos, the writer who 'rapes a blank page', whose pen is 'the verbal knife of a sadist', is now regarded as perhaps the most important modern writer on pornography.

In this new edition of Index, he casts a savage eye over those enslaved, degraded and ultimately destroyed by sex. Reporting back candidly at human lives entwined with pornography, prostitution, drug abuse, murder, and anonymous, unprotected sexual encounters, Sotos also exposes the media hypocrisy surrounding these issues with ruthless clarity.

Review:

Like de Sade, Ragnar Redbeard, Genet, and Iceberg Slim before him, Peter Sotos is a line in the sand of subcultural acceptibility... -- EYE

not a 'nice' book for 'literary' minds, it's a crass, evil, endlessly fascinating study of society's failings... -- Black Sheets

Book Description Creation Books, London, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Second Edition. Peter Sotos, the writer who "rapes a blank page", whose pen is "the verbal knife of a sadist", casts a savage eye over those enslaved, degraded, and ultimately destroyed by sex. Reporting back with explicit accounts of human lives steeped in urban sewers of pornography, prostitution, drug abuse, murder, and anonymous, unprotected sexual encounters, Sotos also exposes media hypocrisy surrounding these issues with ruthless clarity. Index contains reviews of the wildest porno videos and magazines, intersected by candid and shocking confessions of encounters in America's sleaziest sex bars, meat racks and glory holes. The result is a compendium of total abuse which achieves in its own right a pornographic intensity and remove. Peter Sotos, recently translated into French, is now regarded as probably the most important modern writer on pornography. The author of Tick and, Lazy (Creation Books), Pure, Special and Total Abuse, he is also a member of Whitehouse, the notorious "electronic extremes" band whose CDs include Great White Death. "Terryfing and dazzling." " Revolting and degrading." Peter Sotos (born 1960?) is a Chicago-born writer who has contributed an unprecedented examination of the peculiar motivations of sadistic sexual criminals. His works are often cited as conveying an uncanny understanding of myriad aspects of pornography. Most of his writings have focused on sexually violent pornography, particularly of that involving children. His writings are also considered by many to be social criticism often commenting on the hypocritical way media handles these issues. In 1984, while attending The Art Institute of Chicago, Sotos began producing a self-published newsletter or "fanzine" named Pure, notable as the first zine dedicated to serial killer lore. Much of the text and pictures in Pure were photocopied images from major newspapers and other print media. Sotos also used a photocopy from a magazine of child pornography as the cover of issue#2 of Pure. In 1986 this cover led to his arrest and charges of obscenity and possession of child pornography. The charges of obscenity were dropped, but Sotos eventually pled guilty to the possession charge and received a suspended sentence. Sotos was the first person in the United States ever to be charged for owning child pornography. Sotos' writings explore sadistic and pedophilic sexual impulses in their many, often hidden, guises. Often using first person narratives, his prose takes on the point of view of the sexual predator. Despite his early legal troubles, and the seemingly fatal stigma of falsely being labeled a pedophile, Sotos continues to garner support for his ideas and literary output. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 045081
