Subject: Samuel R. Delany's "Phallos" -- New and enhanced edition
We are pleased to announce the
release of Phallos: Enhanced and Revised Edition, by Samuel R. Delany, edited and with an afterword by Robert F.
A race for the stolen phallus of a
Phallos is a vivid
and clever 2004 book by the acclaimed novelist and critic Samuel R.
Delany. A gay pornographic novella, with the explicit sex omitted, Phallos is set during the reign of the second-century Roman
emperor Hadrian, and circles around the historical account of the
murder of the emperor’s favorite, Antinous. The story moves from
Syracuse to Egypt, from the Pillars of Hercules to Rome, from Athens
to Byzantium, and back. Young Neoptolomus searches after the stolen
phallus of the nameless god of Hermopolis, crafted of gold and
encrusted with jewels, within which are reputedly the ancient secrets
of science and society that will lead to power, knowledge, and wealth.
In this enhanced and revised edition, the original novella has been
expanded by nearly a third. Appended to the text are an afterword by
Robert F. Reid-Pharr and three astute speculative essays by Steven
Shaviro, Kenneth R. James, and Darieck Scott.
