Puttin' On The Ritts: Venfield 8's HOT New Limited-Edition OBJECT WEAPON Comments (0)

Object-weaponOut today!

Venfield 8 is back with another publication, this time an ongoing zine called Object Weapon. The premier issue is entitled Duo, and is focused on real-life partners Jon Galt and Vic Rocco. It is a stunning, stirring, sexy, sensual depiction of two men in love and in lust, an homage to the late Herb Ritts's famed book of the same name.

Venfield 8 met the men and started shooting them...it was that simple. Approaching them on an exclusive nude beach in Hawaii, he said (Dita Parlo-style):

“My name is Venfield 8 and I'd like to take your picture.”

The men obliged with languid poses that feel modern and that range from Rittsy glamour to glistening Bianchi decadence to Meisel Sex-iness. Plus there's a double cum-shot because...because.

This zine is beautifully made (8"X8", perfect-bound, embossed cover, designed by Jessie Horowitz) and is limited to 125 pieces. Object Weapon will only come out once or twice a year.

Get yours here, while supplies last.

Robert-Levy

Playwright Robert Levy's debut novel The Glittering World is available for order. Check out this description of what's being called a dark, modern fairy tale:

“It’s a long way from the grit of New York City to the stark beauty of Nova Scotia, and many years separate Blue Whitley’s only two journeys between them. One occurred at five years old, when his mother stole him away from the hinterlands of Canada. Now, twenty-five years later, he’s returning to sell a house left to him by a grandmother he barely remembers.

“He plans the trip as a week of leisure, joined by his best friend, Elisa; her stalwart husband, Jason; and Gabe, Blue’s admiring young co-worker. Idyllic Starling Cove, however, is not your typical vacation spot.

“Blue senses secrets withheld. Strange whispers on the wind welcome him home, pulling him toward the dense, dark woods. After a shocking discovery—that Blue went missing in these forests as a child—life as he knows it falls apart. And when another abduction strikes, the truth about Starling Cove begins to emerge.

“Told from all four characters’ points of view, through lush, evocative prose, The Glittering World is a stunning debut novel—a unique blend of taut psychological thriller and supernatural suspense.”

La-Toya

Big ups to my friend Steve in Chicago for snapping this. This dude on the right is reading—in 2015—an original hardcover copy of La Toya Jackson's first memoir, which came out in 1991. Love it! I just mentioned that book in my memoir, which is coming from Lethe Press in the spring (gulp).
