Thousands of people will receive a devastating medical diagnosis this year. And for most, what follows is a nightmare of anger, shame, loneliness and passivity. Instead of being encouraged to take a lead role in orchestrating their finales, they are expected to wait patiently for the curtain to fall. The Amateur’s Guide is on the cutting edge of death and dying work. It provides an opportunity to break free from the painful silence our culture imposes on death talk. Whether filling out a durable power of attorney form, completing a death anxiety survey or personally designing a unique end-of-life plan, you will be totally involved and engaged. This unique seminar/support group format exposes you to a myriad of life situations and moral dilemmas that arise as one faces his/her mortality head on. Learn from and with people just like you. Ten diverse fictional characters provide essential role models for enhancing life near death. Additionally, six presenters, experts in their field, offer timely advice to help make the end of life less intimidating and more of a rich, poignant transition. This is about achieving a good and wise death in the context of real dying, with all its unpredictability, disfigurement, pain, and sorrow. This workbook is primarily for those currently facing their mortality. But concerned family and friends, healing and helping professionals, lawyers, clergy, teachers, students, and those grieving a death will all benefit from joining in. Because, as we all know, none of us is getting out of here alive.

Secrecy, Sophistry and Gay Sex In The Catholic Church
by Rev. Richard Wagner Ph.D., ACS
Price: $19.95
Paperback: 253 pages
ISBN: 978-1-61098-212-2

For centuries homosexuals have been vilified and persecuted by the Catholic Church, but the Church has always had a very inconvenient secret.  Many of its clergy, even those in the highest echelons of the Church, were and are homosexual.  Little was known of the lives these religious people lived until the publication, in 1981, of the groundbreaking, Gay Catholic Priests; A Study of Cognitive and Affective Dissonance.
     Richard Wagner is the author of that study and he is a gay priest. The media firestorm that erupted after its publication and the backlash within his religious community because of its publication eventually destroyed his public priesthood.  This story of his 13-year battle with the Church to save his ministry exemplifies the spiritual isolation, emotional distress and ecclesiastical reprisals every gay priest most fears.
     Secrecy, Sophistry And Gay Sex In The Catholic Church provides an intimate and sometimes disturbing look into the unseemly inner-workings of the Catholic Church.  It is a detailed account of the Church's take-no-prisoners attitude in stamping out whatever they perceive as a threat, especially if the threat comes from within.

This is the true story of John Smith. A man who discovered that unsuspectingly renting a room from a professional Dominatrix at the tender age of sixteen tends to influence character development. Years of playing in the London spanking and fetish scene followed until one day, unexpectedly, his fun and games came to an end. Now, almost a decade later, he’s moving to Manhattan and determined to seek out other like-minded people to share his interests once again. Kink and the City is the hilarious account of what happened next.
     Without a drug addled past or even an abusive childhood to excuse his predilections he throws himself in where angels fear to tread. From downtown to midtown and out to the Hampton’s he pursues his bizarre interests, dealing with recalcitrant housewives and adult schoolgirls, fearsomely skilled dominants, body building Amazonians, rabid fetishists, nervous dominatrices and spanking fanatics. Taking us on a very real voyage of discovery though the subculture of kink in Gotham, the author opens each new door with trepidation and holds it open for the reader to experience every new encounter, each more outrageous than the next…

The leatherboy Handbook
by Vincent Andrews
Price: $19.95
Paperback: 184 pages
ISBN: 978-1-887895-67-5

In the past when a potential leatherboy has asked me, where do I start I had to guide them to a dozen publications and even then the information was incomplete. Now the answer is simple, The leatherboy Handbook! This book is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the “boy subculture”. Vincent Andrews draws on his own experiences in the leather community as well as some of the best source material available to create what will surely become the companion volume to Larry Townsend’s Leatherman’s Handbook.
    
In a clear and concise voice with numerous references, “boy vince” has created a goldmine for the budding leatherboy, no matter what his gender. Most importantly, this book explains much of the “why” behind the boy experience, and that is the key to its value. I heartily recommend this book for both boys and Daddys, subs and Doms. It is a good read and a requisite for any leather/kink library.
