Sex Robot Cuddle Party

Sex Robot Cuddle Party is presented as a lost novel by the son of the author, a pornographer and a communist. He infuses his creative work with political discourses.

It tells the story of RainyDay Tranquility, captain of the corporate surveying vessel Queen of Space, as she travels with her crew visiting dead worlds. In the future human touch has been rendered deadly. 

Later, she is transported inside her favorite book, Cuddle Party, which she loves because, in it, two people fall asleep touching.

Sex Robot Cuddle Party is a comedy of loneliness, desire, and longing; and a tragedy of love requited. 

A loving homage to new wave sci-fi, absurdist theater, and erotica of the early seventies; featuring existentialist philosophy, Atheism, Greek Gods, artificial intelligence, and the miracle of fungi, in which all things are possible dreamt or un-dreamt.

“At the Existential Sandwich Shop” is filled with aphorisms, jokes, anti-jokes, philosophy, and bears.
You see, an imaginary tree. It wishes to know what the imaginary books are made of, in your imaginary library.

Perils of Free Thought (a book of no small danger)

“Perils of Free Thought” is filled with aphorisms, jokes, anti-jokes, philosophy, and bears. 

Jokes are compact lies. But they are splendid, beautiful lies.

Short stories are simple lies, and you can tell them in one sitting.

Novels are long form lies. Complicated. Got to hold that lie together.

Reality is just a bunch of lies in real time. 

This book also contains “Perils of Time Travel (another book of no small danger)”

Scenic Cesspools & other indignities (a tragi-comedy about work)

Scenic Cesspools is a transgressive tragi-comedy about work. With just enough time travel. And a bucket of grease which has something to do with free will.
Possibly everything.

Scenic Cesspools is the story of a kid who is pulled into his high school disciplinary office to be chastised for achieving some of the highest test scores in the school while still managing to almost flunk out. Upon graduation, there is nothing left but to venture into the workforce. 

Working at a paper mill he discovers the industrial site is an alien landscape filled with green noxious liquids, held in open surface containers, outgassing into the atmosphere. It’s a place where death is as close as a misstep and the air smells a little like poison every day.

He learns that sales is a religion. A religion based on morning motivational meetings, chanting, and believing. If you are “money motivated” all you need do… is believe. 

Leasing low income housing is difficult when your supervisors dislike poor people. Especially when they hate deaf people, because “deaf people make trouble.” 

He learns there is nothing like selling flowers on the street from the back of a pickup; except selling perfume on the street from a cardboard box, or working for Ralph Nader. 

Characters float in and out, sometimes challenging perceptions of time. They are obsessed with nuclear war in Vietnam, sex, Canadians, and unearned heroism.

Soon to Come: 

Lonesome Travelers (guide to city/forest)

A teenage girl comes to read at a nursing home and is assigned to an elderly man no one ever visits. She doesn’t want to be here. It’s a court order. She interrupts him in his spartan room where he is staring out the window at a great bird in the smoky afternoon haze. Instead of her reading to him, he starts to tell her a story.

The story is about the trickster Rabbit, condemned by the Fates to act as the fourth incarnation of Fire. His twin Brother, his shadow, is jealous of him and locks him away in a special box where he burns alone, consuming himself.
The Rabbit’s best friend, Mister Love, is a great bird, a brood parasite, an orphan. He is forming an army of love to liberate his friend Rabbit, and to protect Rabbit’s heir. His duty is clear. He is to adopt lost souls, those capable of giving love even if they have never received it. He travels with his people, ghosts, artists, and revolutionaries.

Rabbit’s heir is a girl who lives alone, a refugee, in a land of perpetual darkness, in which she is the only burning light. She is visited only occasionally by her abusive father. But one night Mister Love visits with all of his interns, and they offer to be her chosen family, if she wants them.

Now she emerges into a world she does not know and is shown this world as-it-is, communicated to her through parable and song. She visits her sister in the under-world, and travels the world and through time, down darkened alleyways which twist, turn, and circle back, examining it, though she has forgotten herself.
But as she travels she is being directed by Rabbit and Mister Love. What will she make of their world, after?
