Willow, Weep

Willow, Weep by Victor J. BanisThe old inn sits by a lake in an ancient forest, shrouded in mystery. Outside, a restless willow thrashes its limbs and, for a fleeting moment, a woman seems to dance in the mist. A trick of the light? Or a villi, perhaps, one of the sirens of legend, who tempt the unfaithful lover to his doom? A man would be a fool to venture out into that night--but the sultry Magda may be waiting for him, an invitation he is unable to resist. And it's only mist, isn't it...? A short story.

Spine Intact, Some Creases

Spine Intact, Some Creases by Victor J. BanisA legendary name from the Golden Age of Paperbacks, VICTOR J. BANIS spins a witty and exuberant tale of A Thousand and One Knights, flitting blithely from tale to tail, in one era and out the other. Part autobiography, part a history of the Gay Revolution, part writing manual, part juicy gossip, with a few tasty recipes thrown in for good measure, Spine Intact, Some Creases is a summing up -- alternately hilarious and touching, instructive and impassioned, and always entertaining -- of the remarkable life and work of a writer hailed by top gay pulp historian Michael Bronski as ?one of my heroes.?...

Life & Other Passing Moments

Life & Other Passing Moments by Victor J. BanisIn this collection of shorter pieces, Victor J. Banis demonstrates once again the astonishing breadth of his talent, covering virtually every facet of the human experience with astonishing brevity and clarity. Here are pathos and heartache, love and horror, irony -- and humor, especially humor, dry and wry and roll-on-the-floor-clutching-your-sides funny. It would be a hard man indeed who could read the adventures of his Underground Diner -- which take up much of the last half of the book and aptly skewer the ubiquitous and often pretentious food writing column -- without guffawing aloud.

No, not that one--the one just on the other side of that place they call the dining area. The kitchen, of course. Now, I'm sure you know your way around the other rooms, especially the one with the queen-sized you-know-what, but as I'm prone to mention from time to time, one of the ways to a man's heart is through his stomach, which means you'll have to spend some time in the kitchen cooking!"

This very basic guide to cooking for your guy--or for anyone else!--is broken into thirteen chapters, each dealing...

This time the crusader for gay justice is thrown into the most fracturingly funny escapade of his career, being joined by an unbelievably incompetent household of characters, who go by the code name of WATERCRESS, and who insist on helping him with his (barely) dangerous mission.

Kenny's Back

Kenny's Back by Victor J. BanisKenny walked into the old farm house as if he'd never been away, as if nothing he'd done had ever shattered their reputations. But was this the real Kenny, the man who had disappeared into the night five years earlier? He certainly wasn't behaving like it. There was something sinister about him, too vague to put into actual words. Even his romantic interest in Ingrid, the co-heir to the family estate, was unlike the man--he'd never shown a real interest in a woman before. Mar had to find out for sure--and he had to know if this was the same man he'd loved all those years ago!

The old painting was done on glass, and found beneath the ruins of the ancient, decaying French mansion that Emily Hastings' sister, Irene, had inherited from the estate of the Marquis de Garac.
