UPDATED Cover Reveal, Plus: 87 Copies Left of ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA 20: LTD ED Comments (0)

Encyclopedia-Madonnica-20Madonna-Matthew-RettenmundCover art by Pegasus. Cover design by Anthony Coombs.

The final countdown is on for the publication of the long-awaited, unauthorized mega-book:

ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA 20

by Matthew Rettenmund

Madonna from A to Z, from birth to “Bitch I'm Madonna.” Every aspect of Madonna's life and career is covered with respect, love, humor ... and the occasional spanky. At times, you will feel like this book contains more info on Madonna than the Internet does, and there are definitely things in here that Madonna has forgotten about herself!

The book includes never-before-seen photos, images of rare collectibles, classic portraits and red-carpet poses, original interviews with people who've worked with Madonna + over 80 one-word Madonna descriptions contributed by stars such as Carol Burnett, Liza Minnelli, Andy Cohen, Olivia Newton-John and many more!

As much of a visual treat as it is, the book is chiefly a serious (and seriously funny) assessment of all things Madonna. As such, it contains over 420,000 words on the woman who kindly requests that you not hang your shit on her, thanks.

Full-color, approximately 600 pages, quality paperback.

Limited Edition: 500 copies only. 86 copies are left for sale as of today. Unique cover + unique 16-page photo feature + signed/numbered bookplate. Buy now until they're gone. Books will be shipped once printed, hopefully in the month of August*, with book plates to follow, just as Madonna is blowing out 57 candles and preparing to blow us away with her Rebel Heart Tour.

UPDATED INFO FOR TRANSPARENCY: After examining my Kickstarter, I have verified 289 copies of the Limited Edition sold. 100 more were sold last night. I am reserving 25 for myself and for contributors to whom I am contractually bound to supply a copy/reviewers/Madonna's team. I purchased 1 myself to test my Paypal button, so that 1 goes back into the pool. That leaves 87 as of Monday, July 20, 2015. Good luck! This is the last time the Limited Edition version will be sold until someone puts theirs on eBay.

Regular Edition: Goes on sale at Amazon very soon—hopefully in August.

BUY NOW VIA PAYPAL. Be sure you use the drop-down to select US/Canada if you're in the US or Canada, and Non-US/Canada if you are not. All prices and sales are final. THANK YOU!

US/Can vs. Non-US/Can Buyers

STARF*CKER: A MEME-OIR Is On Sale Now! Comments (0)

Starf*cker-Matthew-Rettenmund-Lethe-PressCover design by Evan Gaffney

I am proud, happy, nervous, scared and hopeful to announce that my humorous, pop culture-saturated memoir Starf*cker: A Meme-oir is now available for pre-order from my publisher, Lethe Press.

I could not be more excited to be published by Lethe, home of great and interesting and offbeat works in many genres, and a publisher that is not afraid to still publish gay books, and to call them gay books.

If you have ever read and enjoyed my blog, I would greatly appreciate it if you'd give my book a shot—it was a labor of (self-) love. I think even people who know me will be surprised by some of it, and it is my intention that every reader will come away having laughed a lot.

I write about my/our lifelong obsession with celebrity, whether it be growing up with Charlie's Angels, making lists of movie stars as egged on by my mom (who invariably gave me Faye Dunaway to get me going), working in porn, running a teen mag or—of course!—observing and interacting with Madonna.

Buy yours here! It's out November 1, 2015.

6a00d8341c2ca253ef01b7c7ad74de970b-600wiI wouldn't say this just because Robert Richards is an old pal of mine (he once gave me a Jon-Erik Hexum illustration = full disclosure), but the new book Stroke: From Under the Mattress to out in the Open is an absolutely indispensable tome, dripping with not only highly erotic imagery but also with gay history. There is something important to be gleaned from the ever-evolving state of gay desire, and Richards and Hunter O'Hanian deftly capture it in this sumptuous coffee-table J.O. volume.

It's art, it's porn, you'll laugh, you'll, cum—it's everything. 

The artists included are the best of the best:

The book includes one of my favorite gay artists, Harry Bush—I would do anything or anyone to have some of his original work.
