you clone yourself—and remain yourself? A
mind-blowing trip into immortality, filled with full-body thrills, and
spectacular highs. All from a storyteller at the peak of his art. “Perry Brass
has added to the annals of gay lit.” —Book Marks.
What happens when Dr. Leonard
Miller, a leading gay bio-researcher—who is secretly addicted to “kinky” sex—is
found murdered in his laboratory, after working on a living human tissue more
than two thousand years old? And what happens when this constantly regenerating
substance brings Miller himself back to life?
Leonard Miller must ask
himself these questions, as well as who has infiltrated his laboratory to kill
him, how long will he have to live—and exactly
where does life end? Miller’s story
takes him from the sex scenes of Manhattan to
the baths of Istanbul. It deals with
religious fundamentalism and sexual ritual and release. And Miller, the
unbelieving scientist, will be driven himself to ask: Is our often suppressed
urge towards sex and our urge towards a union with God . . .
the same urge?
Once again Perry Brass’s work
fuses action, spirituality, politics, and eroticism to explore some of the
major questions of our time.
When the ozone layer opened and the sun relentlessly scorched the land, there was nothing left but to hope. Mathew Harrison had always heard of a better life as close as Birmingham, only thirty-five miles away—zones of blue sky, wet grass, and clean breathable air. But to him it’s a myth, a place guarded by soldiers, off limits to all but the lucky few. Meanwhile Mat works alongside his father, mining only the red clay that the once fertile Alabama soil can offer.
Now, with the killing deserts on the move again and the woman he loves on a Greyhound heading north, Mat has a travel visa and every reason to leave. But his roots in this lifeless soil inexplicably hold him firmly to the past. Torn between hope and resignation, with time running out, Mat must make a fateful choice between a new life and the one that isn’t ready to let him go.
