A Novella by

Set in Istanbul at the height of the Cold War, the novelette “Crown of Thorns” recounts a young American intelligence officer’s erotic submission to a brutal Turkish stevedore. In a revealing Author’s Note, Aaron Travis cites John le Carré and William Burroughs among his influences for this dark account of obsession and betrayal.

Michael Bronski, Gay Community News: Travis is “known for his exceptionally hot, and smart, short fictions.”

Max Marra, Babilonia (Italy): “Travis is a very personable young writer, with a wholesome air and a ready smile that betray no outward sign of his capacity for spinning such contorted and corrosive fantasies.”

Sam Steward: "Aaron Travis writes with a golden pen.”
