First is Suresha’s new collection of Turkish folk humor, Extraordinary Adventures of Mullah Nasruddinfrom Lethe Press, the sequel to his 2001 award-winning book of humor, The Uncommon Sense of the Immortal Mullah Nasruddin. These authentic, hilarious “Naughty Nasruddin” stories deal with tabu topics such as bisexuality, adultery, incest, bestiality, and violence. Repressed for centuries for moralistic reasons, many are being published in an English trade book for the first time. Come prepared to be amused and astounded.

The author will also read from the new anthology, The Bears of Winter, edited by Jerry L. Wheeler (who lives in Denver and cannot attend), published by the Bear Bones Books imprint of Lethe Press, which Suresha edits. Listen to excerpts from growlingly sexy bearotica sure to make your fur thicken.

Following the reading, Suresha will answer questions and sign copies of his books.



Ron J. Suresha’s published nonfiction works include: a self-published beverage recipé book, Mugs o’ Joy: Delicious Hot Drinks (1998, reprinted 2013); an acclaimed 2002 book on the worldwide gay and bisexual men’s Bear subculture, Bears on Bears: Interviews & Discussions (revised edition, Bear Bones Books, 2008); and two anthologies, Bi Men: Coming Out (edited with Pete Chvany, Haworth/Routledge, 2006), and Bisexual Perspectives on the Life and Work of Alfred C.
