Watch out, or the Sexual Avenger will get you! Read about his truly dreadful career in the new soft-cover novel:
by LAURENCE COLLINSON
which is comic and erotic and contains lashings of gayness.
This novel is being published by subscription because even those established British publishers who have been most enthusiastic about it are still hung-up about sex.
The manuscript will go to the printers as soon as there are enough subscribers – not longer than about three months, the author/ publisher hopes. In the meantime, the money will be held in trust and returned if the project fails to get off the ground.
There will be a special limited edition of 350 copies, signed and numbered by the author, at £2.00 per copy. The ordinary edition will sell at £1.00 per copy. Both prices include postage.
