At the same time, the over the top brutality of "RoughNight" rests in such a sharp comparison to the book's titular story, that Frtischer's genius as an erotic writer is stunning. On one hand, you have a William Gibson/James Cameron sadistic future gone berserk, on the other, a slow, brutal, circling of wolves. It's sadistic without a single blow being struck, frightening without a single threat uttered, and tensely sexual in a manner that echoes "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?." Two men locked in a dance around the other, a barber from the old days of San Francisco and a rough young buck on his mission to find the face of God. There are no razors, but each cuts the other, penetration but no rape. Just long slow sexual burn.
That story, like this book, encapsulates masculine writing in a timeless form. A far cry from most hard core SM writing that loses itself in meaningless genital tossing and faceless back alley crotch mauling. Allow yourself the time to read, absorb and savor each of these stories. From the startling wartime cruelty that opens the book with a torturous breaking of "The Shadow Soldiers," to the final Eros of "Sleep In Heavenly Peace," this is too fine a vintage to pilfer away quickly.
