Madrugada? the Time Between Midnight and Dawn Madrugada gathers nine of David May's early stories, stories about a circle of friends exploring San Francisco's infamous Folsom Street from the apex of its notoriety to the beginning of its decline as sexual haven for leather men. While covering much of the terrain familiar to readers of SM erotica, these stores go further, exploring the implications of Male Leather's Cultures codes and iconography. Madrugada celebrates the power, pain and pleasure of men loving men, honoring our history of raw sexual energy. First published in 1997, Madrugada was called lyrical or evocative by some, it later became a part of the permanent library at the Leather Archives in Chicago. These stories are powerful statements about a way of life? Of these stories, my favorite ones take us on a trip into the leather world, but never leaving behind the true essence of the character. In these stories, the trip might be hot but mainly because were following a person on a sexual journey? -M. Christian in Batteries Not Included Perfect if you?re getting in the mood for a night out at the local leather bar. -Ed McLaughlin in Boudoir Noir David May's stories of San Francisco's gay leather community depict a milieu in which sex is explicit, extreme and in your face? David May's generation of bad boys is out on the street kicking butt. -Michael Perkins in Screw From a spontaneous breakout of bootlicking in the first story through a raunchy roundelay of lubeless gangbangs, shackle-packed pain sessions, and one stingingly memorable whipping with a urine-drenched belt, May crams his tight little volume with excruciatingly well-rendered S&M scenes. You can practically smell the rough sex on the pages?Virtually every character in Madrugada (most appear in several stories) ends up shifting between roles. This accentuated duality adds intriguing nuance to a book that might otherwise be viewed as relentlessly brutal. -Jim Gladstone in Lambda Book Report This is the best collection of SM stories I have read in a long time. -Victor Terry in Checkmate (incorporating Dungeon Master) Dare to explore the Time Between Midnight and Dawn, a time when inner yearnings are met, when fantasies are realized -- a time when frightening truths are faced for the first (and sometimes the last) time, a time wherein four young men find themselves both lost and found?
