An excerpt from Fire. Sun. Salutation. – A Midsummer Day’s Dream

from the story “A Midsummer Day’s Dream”:
The cold waves of the lake reflect softly in the snow as the sun peaks out behind several clouds roasting the leaves on the trees to turn yellow green under pressure of draught. The snow falls without too much hesitancy and as it settles it turns the white tundra into a puddle of milky resolution creating streams and rivers that navigate the patchwork of the ground until finally coming to rest at the bottom of the cerulean body named Lake Chaubunagungamauganesha. It is hot as hell and the water boils sending steam into the air creating the fog of an outdoor sauna with entire landscapes melting in front of their eyes and time coming to a standstill each breath long thought out and constituting a lifetime’s worth of memories and decidual attachment. Still the snow continues to fall and pile high covering them and their surroundings in frost-laden reminiscings looking freshly decadent while butterflies flock in the air one by one across the sky reputedly beating their wings gracefully rapidly imminently with flagrance in their small truculent hearts.
The group of three stops and admires the tree on fire in the woods. They whisper to each other.
“It’s as if it doesn’t even happen,” says Hector Salvia
To finish the story you’ll have to grab a copy for yourself. Fire. Sun. Salutation. is available now! It is a collection of 9 short stories of erotic surreal splendor. You won’t be disappointed.
New book AVAILABLE TODAY!
My new book Fire. Sun. Salutation. is available now! It is a collection of 9 short stories I wrote between 2011 and 2013. Continuing in the erotic tradition I set in my previous book, these stories seek to honor the Muse through some truly surreal moments of passionate transcendence. You’ll find yourself lost in these exotic fantasies, begging for more, maybe even questioning what is reality. This is great winter reading with the heat turned up to the hundredth degree, hopefully hot enough to awaken that beautiful fiery goddess inside us all. It’s been 4 years in the making so I’m extremely happy to finally release it into the wild.
The collection also features a photo series of sunsets and sunrises from across the country and an introduction by Augustus Depenbrock. The mythical cover art was illustrated by Julia Crachiolo. And everything is printed using Createspace.
You can grab a copy over at Amazon or Createspace. Available for Kindle as well! Buy a copy now and enjoy!
Book description: Fire. Sun. Salutation. is a collection of 9 short stories, both surreal and erotic in experience. It is the story of a writer trying to arouse his muse. A lecher learning to dance. Three psychonauts camping in a slowly fading fairy tale. A rêvelutionary road trip across the great American plains. A man discovering the sensual power he holds in his fingertips, while another finds he is ruined by it. And all throughout this journey, fire haunts the narrative in the form of an all-loving goddess.
These stories are a sun salutation to the beauty of that noble temptress, filled with the heat of her embers. Through stories of foreplay and of ritualized transformation, the text unwinds like a hot night spent in bed with a lover like no other. Written in the context of a dream world, readers of Henry Miller, Anais Nin, and/or Arthur Rimbaud, as well as anyone looking for a new love, will find their every fantasy satisfied between these pages. Enter this dream where the roads are saturated with the juices of a thousand years of lovemaking, and learn to breath.
