Synopsis: DIXON STALWARD IS WITH US AGAIN! offering "My Vigorous Sins"
And, oh lord, that return comes with a vengeance! Dixon Stalward's hot, racy, in-your-face fiction is hotter, racier, and more in-your-face than ever as he recalls the 'vigorous sins' of his life in 192 of the wettest, slickest, drippingest pages of all wet, slick, dripping pages. And yet that introspected sophistication, that lyrical enthusiasm for life's strange and sometimes terrible beauty prevails. You bet. Anyhow, in fourteen chapters Stalward relates much of what has made his gay life gay. Starting in Rifle, Colorado 1952 and Oskaloosa, Iowa 1954 to Montoya, California 1959 to Moose Hook, Montana 1977 and on to Beverly Hills, California 1987 and Palm Springs 1992, we follow the ups and downs, the ins and outs, the endings and beginnings of Stalward's pursuit of life. There are the days of precocious innocence with Ely Willie, and with Patton Crippley and Nimrod as well. And then those of a growing hunger for more sophistication with film director Gordon Watch. Then come the times of calm discovery with Billy Barcena. In turn, Fred Simpson and Werter Vildeganz each leave their marks. Then whore boy Monty instructs Dixon how to navigate in that world. And on to associations with Middleton Mathews, Javier de la Torre, and Roberto Fuentes; and Curtis Curtis LeBlanc and Daniel Peligrew, and Candy 'The Clutcher' Kuchman. All these men of virile, vital masculinity assist Dixon, sometimes generously and sometimes not, in getting the most out of life. It's a rollercoaster ride/read with lots of stops off for hot diversion of a personal nature!
Please note: The book's front, inside front, and inside back covers have full-color photos of author Stalward tastefully NUDE! Yeah, plumb nekkid! But not the back cover. No. There you'll find the man tastefully clothed.
From the Publisher: And so once again a Dixon Stalward book is unleashed upon the world, a world that in some quarters awaits in quiet, yet enthusiastic, anticipation. But for those readers of erotic gay fiction who are as yet unfamiliar with the fluid sophistication of Stalward's tales, "My Vigorous Sins" should prove more than just a casual encounter with gay male eroticism captured in prose. Going beyond the hot, sweaty aspects of the sexual uncertainty that exists in almost every man's drive through life, Stalward's work brings humanity, caring, and empathy into the proposition. Oh yes, uncertainty still abides, but its unsettling alarm is mitigated by humor and the reassurance that things will somehow work out all right, the most refined sort of ambivalence. In "My Vigorous Sins", the case immediately at hand, Stalward recounts events of his own life, mostly sexual, that are encouraging in their universality. After "For Openers" (excerpted above) he moves briskly into his narrative. The chapters are briefly described below.
