And what a tour! Within these pages Gates proves there’s ALWAYS new information about sex and desire, because human adaptability and creativity ever combine to discover new frontiers of pleasure, whether by imagining ourselves superheroes or tiny or giants, or simply stuffing party balloons down our pants.

Stories of a Chicago Police Officer by Murphy $20.99 – Sex or lunch, what would you do, six days in a row? If you don’t find the baby soon, will she freeze to death? It appears to be a single gunshot wound directly under the chin; should we assume suicide or possibly foul play? It appears the grandfather had a heart attack and fell through the glass storm window. Do we remove the body before the young grandkids show up? It’s against rules but we can’t allow the children’s last memory of grandpa to be crumpled and bleeding. Is that a gun in his hand or is that a cell phone? It’s too dark, but the call was a man with a gun! If you’re right you’re a hero. If you’re wrong you go to the morgue. These decisions are made on a daily basis if you are a Chicago Police Officer.

Madman’s Eye: The Art of Mac Blackout (Hozac Books) $32 – Around Chicago, his art has become inescapable, always peeking out from a storefront, a doorway, an alley, or one of his beloved garbage cans, his aesthetic has become an unofficial pock mark on the face of the city. As his direction has drifted across so many projects over the years, he’s gone from respected graffiti artist, into the world of fine art, and into pen & ink, collage, & multi-media painting. Not to mention his numerous world-renowned punk bands, Functional Blackouts, Daily Void, Mickey, New Rose Alliance, and his solo material with Mac Blackout Band, Mac has always been at the center of a rogue nervous system that needed to come to life on it’s own in the form of his art.
