Zane Grey (Novelist, Writer of Riders of the Purple Sage)

ABOUT THE BOOKThe concept of a professional writer-as we understand it today-has existed for only about a hundred years. Sure, there were people who made money writing books and articles prior to this, but most of the time these people did not consider writing their main source of income nor their job. They considered themselves &quote;artists9amp;quote; or thought of their writing as a hobby. One of the best ways to become known as a &quote;writer9amp;quote; in the United States in the 1920s and 1930s was to have your name appear on the cover of a formula western novel. Formula westerners were extremely popular during this time.Writers such as Zane Grey, Max Brand, and Earnest Haycox enjoyed this status for work that appeared in a wide variety of magazine and book publications, work that managed to find its way into the most remote corners of American life. Grey, Faust, and Haycox were well-paid too, of course, by the standards of the day, and as Christine Bold reports in her book examining the publishing history of the formula western, Selling the Wild West, Grey became &quote;famous as one of the first Americans to earn $1 million by writing.&quote;Grey achieved this milestone during a career that included the production of over 50 novels, nine of which became top ten best-sellers. Grey stood above the rest of the field, as both his economic success and prominent position in the American imagination indicate. However, his contemporaries and successors still attempted to put their stamp on the sub-genre and they continued to profit from its popularity.MEET THE AUTHORJeff Davis is a lifelong educator with a Ph.D. in English Studies who has taught at both the high school and university levels.EXCERPT FROM THE BOOKThe outlining and the fleshing out of the main character, the hero, became a major preoccupation of the publishers, whose instructions got so exhaustive on many occasions that it seemed the only creative detail left to the writer was the hero’s name. Even this tiny bit of the content could not be left entirely to the writer’s invention, however, as another portion of the letter from publisher Smith to writer Patten demonstrates: &quote;It is important that the main character in the series should have a catchy name.&quote;The importance of the &quote;pulp9amp;quote; and &quote;slick9amp;quote; magazine trade that replaced the dime novel was that they published in serial form chapters and excerpts from longer, complete works. Zane Grey and his contemporaries benefited from the distribution of parts of their longer works in the magazines before the entire narrative was published as a hard back novel. In this way, publishers were able to produce a yearning for more. Although Grey was able to enjoy considerably more authorial freedom during &quote;the golden age,&quote; the detailed instructions glimpsed above had already hardened into a set of rules that even he had to obey to a certain degree. The formula was constructed from the very beginning to be as tightly organized as possible, perfected for easy transfer from individual to individual…Buy a copy to keep reading!

Erotica Writer Zane: I’m Facing Discrimination

Thanks to the multiple Bitchery readers who forwarded this over. Erotica author and editor Zane emailed a DC-area email loop the following account of how her latest book is facing an uphill battle in terms of finding places in which to advertise. Why? Because it’s Black erotica? Nope. Because it’s gay. Specifically, according to Zane’s email, lesbian erotica. Read on

Zane’s Apology for the Status of Today’s World

At first, I was going to hold my tongue about this issue; I really was. When one of the biggest National chain bookstores informed my publicist that my latest book was “too racy” for me to do signings there, I discussed it with a few people and let it go. When a book club service that has carried every last one of my other titles decided “to pass” on this one because they did not feel it fit their demographics, I let it go. But, there is always that proverbial last straw and that straw broke the camel’s back last night. I received an “Apology” email from a person who runs an online magazine. It was an apology to her subscribers because someone was offended by her promotion of my latest title. She vowed to not promote any more erotica or books that were not PG-13 rated. I emailed her back to ask if that includes street fiction or roughly 85% of the novels on the market that have some form of violence, profanity, or sexual content.

The book that I am referring to is “Purple Panties: The Eroticanoir.com Anthology.” Now there have been many Eroticanoir.com Anthologies, including “Succulent: Chocolate Flava 2” that just celebrated six weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List earlier this year. No one had a problem with that anthology or any of the ones before it. They sold them like candy, threw them in the front windows of bookstores and had huge displays, and made them the automatic shipments for book club members. From day one, with “The Sex Chronicles: Shattering the Myth,” I have never toned down my content. It has always been what is has been. All of a sudden, there is “an issue.”

The only difference between “Purple Panties” and the nearly two dozen other titles that I have written or edited is that it is a collection of LESBIAN EROTICA. To that, I say shame on it all. It saddens me that we still live in a world that is so sexually oppressed. Now I am not saying that people need to rush out and read the book, or any of my books. I am saying, point blank, that people have a ton of sexual hang-ups that they need to get over. Everything is not for everybody but to “be offended,” to claim that a book is “too racy” for book signings but “Succulent” was not too racy a couple of months ago, nor “Dear G Spot” before that, or the book before that and so on, makes the real rationale behind it obvious. Will they feel that same way when “Honey Flava” comes out two weeks from now or “Another Time, Another Place” in early June? “Zane’s Sex Chronicles” in August? “Sensualidad: Caramel Flava 2” in August? Will they feel that same way when my next full-length novel “Total Eclipse of the Heart” comes out in November? “Head Bangers 2: An APF Sexcapade” in March? Will those books be “too racy” for book signings or to be featured?

Do not mistake this as some sort of plea to sell books. “Purple Panties” is currently #442 on Amazon.com, just as high, or higher, in rank than any book that I have ever put out. It will sell like crazy because it is a book that was long overdue. There are millions of people in this world in same gender loving (SGL) relationships. Who has the right to judge them, or tell them what they should or should not do with their lives?

This saddens me because I have now gotten a glimpse, just a tiny, miniscule glimpse of the discrimination that homosexual and bisexual people face in this world; especially in American society. Eleven years ago I set out on a quest to liberate and empower women”both sexually and overall. To know that we still have such a very long way to go is disappointing. I am not a lesbian but not because I have anything against it. I am just attracted to men. However, I now consider myself an “honorary lesbian” because I am pissed off at the injustices directed towards them and their gay male counterparts.

I am not going to go on and on about this but I had to speak on it. Life goes on.

P.S. Do not think that, for one second, this will deter me from my path. “Missionary No More: Purple Panties 2” is complete and will be released on schedule next January. “Flesh to Flesh” edited by Lee A. Hayes, a collection of GAY EROTICA, will be released later this month. I am proud of that book as well. People love as they love; not as directed.

I’m curious – is there a bias against lesbian erotica? Has anyone encountered this bias in their own work in the past? I know that a few erotica publishers have mentioned in passing that f/f erotica is not among their biggest sellers – is there a lack of interest in reading female-centered sexual content, or is there a blockage getting it to the marketplace altogether? I know there are different types of discrimination faced more by lesbians than by gay men, but are booksellers reacting to a perceived lack of demand for f/f erotica and protecting their bottom line, or is there a decided aversion to anything lesbian? Your thoughts?

The name of Zane Grey is synonymous with the Old West. Born in Zanesville, Ohio, Grey was a New York City dentist who became the most famous western fiction novelist of his day. His successful tales of cowboys and Indians and outlaws and settlers played a key role in the worldwide establishment of the western as arguably the most popular genre—in print and on film—of much of the 20th century. His topic titles alone still ring with the force of myth: Riders of the Purple Sage, Code of the West, Thunder Mountain, West of the Pecos. Grey established many of the precepts of the western, like the vaunted “code of the West,” the heroic adherence to honor and loyalty and chivalry, and other shibboleths that resonated in the minds of readers and with the culture at large, transcending the author’s invention to become a kind of perceived history. His position as the great, legendary chief of all writers of westerns is appropriate not only for his lasting influence but for the scope of his achievement. Grey’s work cumulatively encompassed the American frontier experience—landscape and nature, pioneering, lawlessness and gunfighters, cattle drives, range wars, the problems of the Native Americans, the coming of telegraphs and railroads and boom towns, romance, racial intolerance, revenge, tragedy—in an epic vision of the West that dwarfed all other writers in the genre.

Grey’s flaw, noted even in his heyday, was an antiquated prose style that owed too much to James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) and other stolid writers of an earlier era and nothing to the vigor and immediacy introduced to American literature by Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Jack London, and others from whom Grey could have learned. Still, Grey had his creative virtues, including a journalistic thoroughness about research, much of it gathered from authentic residents of the Wild West whom Grey interviewed and befriended when he began touring the actual locations in the 1900s. Grey also was socially modern (if erratically so), with enlightened views of the Indians and the their mistreatment by the American government.

Although Zane Grey is no longer widely read and his status as the all-time best-selling writer of westerns was long ago taken over by Louis l’amour, he remains a totemic figure, one of the great folklorists of American history.
