All good stories begin with fascinating characters, and this novel is replete with them. We have Gwen, nineteen, five feet two inches, voluptuous and gorgeous. Gwen is a budding journalist who will do anything to get a story - and the story she gets leads her far deeper into an awareness of herself and sexual experience than she ever planned to go. We have Dan, big and brawny, a young cop, who discovers in himself a love of Gwen so overpowering that it leads him to heights of heroism and to depths of human understanding. We have the shadowy Mr. Mason, a Las Vegas racketeer, whose shadow grows blacker and more vile with each succeeding revelation of his character. And then we have Cliff, a giant of a man who proves to have a gentle heart; Claudia, a whorehouse madame and a sadistic lesbian; and Bob, Gwen's understanding and intelligent journalistic employer.

Poet John Glassco wrote a great many unusual and eccentric works during his career, and ranks among the finest Canadian authors of the 20th Century. This particular title, published under the pseudoym "Miles Underwood," has achieved status as a must-have in your BDSM library. It is the account of Harriet Marwood, summoned to tutor the son of a 19th Century Victorian businessman, Arthur Lovel, whose wife has died, in the proper way to conduct himself, and to quit what is wonderfully termed "self-effacing." Our Ms. Marwood soon takes over the house, leaving the businessman free to consort with Kate, his whore, and the boy, young Richard, at her mercy, where he most wants to be.

One of the funniest moments in the history of Olympia came when the South African poet Sinclair Beiles entered Girodias' office with sheets of paper adorned by Chinese characters. Telling Girodias a story about youth spent among missionaries in China, Beiles indicated his reams of parchment, and stated that they were unique erotic writings from that nation, and all he'd need to translate this phenomenal document would be some money each week for a new chapter... As it turns out, Beiles was working from an earlier translation of the 15th century erotic classic Jin Ping Mei, a work about Hsi Men (Ximen Qing) and his six wives that, with its graphic descriptions and instructions, is said to have inspired the Kama Sutra, among other books. The Jin, Ping and Mei in the title are the later three wives, and the most interesting ones for our purposes. One of those later spouses, whose name translates as Golden Lotus, is a character from the classic "Outlaws of the Marsh," delightful woman lady who poisons her ugly, smelly, not-getting-it-done first husband to marry the libertine Hsi Men, and is punished for this crime by the tiger-slaying, heroic brother of husband one. In Jin Ping Mei, Hsi Men is able to take advantage of the corrupt regime and have that heroic brother sent far, far away, while he continues to enjoy his wives and lifestyle. Beiles simplified and improved upon his translation, removing tedious interviews with court officials and drawing out some of the more intimate scenes.
The work is also known, in English, as "Golden Lotus," "The Love Pagoda," "The Six Wives of Hsi Men," etc...

This anonymous tale, published by Olympia in the later years, is an insect's-eye view of amorous contests held in a village, also observing the general activities, as it were. Our eyewitness keeps us close to the action, but casts an intriguingly detached eye, unless he sees fit to aid in the congress.

The tragic life of Aubrey Beardsley (illustrator of "The Yellow Book," and Oscar Wilde's Salome) was, in addition to his untimely death at age 25, further marred by censorship. The famed illustrator had compiled his erotic text "Story of Venus and Tannhauser" into a couple of underground editions, but was only able to publish expurgated versions of the work in a magazine known as "The Savoy"--Beardsley was dismissed from the Yellow Book, a publication he had helped found, because of his friendship with Wilde, when the latter was seen holding a yellow book prior to his arrest on charges of homosexuality. Luckily Miles Underwood, author of The English Governess, has joined Beardsley's illustrations with the deceased author's unfinished manuscripts of the story. Adding in his own bits here and there, voila, we have "Under the Hill," a kind of fairy tale for adults, featuring Tannhauser, a German hero of myth and Venus, goddess of love, plus some wild parties, and sex without repercussion.
Sex and general salaciousness in the decadent theatre district of... Liverpool. Hey, in the trenches, acting folk work extra hard on every aspect of their profession. Besides, to date this is the only Olympia title to combine the erotic life with Shakespeare. Also there's a player in it named Maurice, and as we erotophiles all know, anytime there's an Olympia title with a "Maurice" or a heavily accented publisher, you gotta pay close attention to the backstory. It's just like a "J.C." character in Faulkner.
