      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
      nameless god

      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.
