My very first collection of stories and one that gained me some valuable attention, raised my profile...especially when people like Canadian literary great Timothy Findley took notice of the book and praised it highly.
Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination features likely my most anthologized story, "Invisible Boy". A personal and cathartic work of fiction, it has long been a favorite of readers. The collection also includes some powerful post-holocaust/post-nuke offerings, written during the years when the entire world lived under the constant threat of annihilation. You'll find "The Hibakusha", "The Cattletruck" and "Apocalypse Beach", tales that contain real fear and anxiety.
There's nothing contrived or fake about the Sex collection. It's intense, credible and pulls no punches. Out of print, near impossible to find, the book that got things started for me. It still holds a special place in my heart.
