Inhaltsangabe: Warlock, A Novel of Possession:
Allen Barrow, a shy bank clerk, dresses out of discount stores and has a small penis that embarrasses him. One night at a noisy, popular bathhouse in Manhattan he meets Destry Powars-commanding, vulgar, seductive, successful-who pulls Allen into his orbit and won't let go. Destry lives in a closed, moneyed world that Allen can only glimpse through the smoky windows of popular media and tabloids. From generations of impoverished drifters, Powars has been chosen to learn a secret language based on force, deception, and nerve. But who chose him-and what does he really want from Allen? What are Mr. Powars's dark powers? These are the mysteries that Allen will uncover in Warlock, a novel that is as paralyzing in its suspense as it is voluptuously erotic.
Vom Autor: Some people expect Warlock to be one-handed reading material. It’s not. Although erotic, it is not pornographic. Some expect a stick-in-the eye, pulpy horror novel. The horror element in it is much more subtle, like in Ira Levin’s classic tale of urban horror, Rosemary’s Baby, than in Clive Barkerdom. What the book is about is submission and surrender--those two exquisite sexual feelings--surrendering to someone whose behavior you might find repulsive, but whose magnetism is unavoidable. Warlock is about giving up your "common sense," your judgment, and realizing the power of surrendering to your deepest needs and feelings. So this book has an S & M feeling, without dungeon scenes, leather masters, etc. In fact, in one leather bar scene, Destry Powars sneers at the posturing going on: he is much more powerful than that, the real master also in submission to Allen Barrow, the naive creature who, in turn, is enthralled with Powars, yet repulsed by him. The newsletter of NY’s Gay Male S & M Activists, called Warlock "the essence of S & M." In some ways, women may identify with this book more than men: women are often called upon to surrender and to be surrendered to. In gay relationships, this sense of total surrender, and the security to do it, is usually lacking. But, when the moment comes and it happens . . . well, that is the domain of warlocks, those powerful rebels within their own hearts, among us.
