Challenges of Being a Gay Male Storyteller and Illustrator

Because I’m a gay male storyteller and artist/illustrator, I have had to accepted many challenges lurking in the dark unknown ever since I began the process of writing long-form science fiction. What emerged after many difficult years in development is Baja Clavius, my novel-length storytelling about time travelers who are gay men.

I’m sharing this personal information to help shed light on how all this happened. Maybe there are other writers out there who can benefit from my lessons learned or find a certain inspiration.

Straight or Gay?

For one brief moment, I imagined I should write a science fiction novel for straight readers. My thinking was that readers who are gay—particularly gay men—are fewer in number compared to the population of straight readers of both genders. I believed at the time that if I tried to sell what I wrote for a gay male audience, I likely would generate very little attention or money.

But, I chose instead to write a science fiction tailored for readers who like science fiction who happen to be gay males. And yes, I’m aware that some straight female readers enjoy reading fiction that focuses upon man-on-man relationships and sexual activities. Bisexual males may also enjoy reading such content. I just switched my thinking from the genders or sexual orientations of my target audience to focusing instead on telling appealing illustrated stories.

Outside the Envelope

Science fiction has always been a genre in which characters, behaviors, and ideas are tolerated—if not celebrated—even when they happened to be outside the envelope of conventional storytelling. But, early on, I discovered that anti-gay prejudice is alive and well in the community of science fiction writers of the present day as represented by one prejudiced blooger.

The blogger’s online presence suggested that he has an established track record as a writer in science fiction, horror, and comic books. But, he refused to mention my work on his blog—even though I was willing to pay him to do so. He told me that he had concluded his blog readers would not find my gay science fiction acceptable.

Pushing the Boundaries

So, I amplified and expanded upon the man-on-man sexual behaviors of my characters and the violence. I decided to push the boundaries in my storytelling and never stop to consider whether anyone might find it unacceptable. That choice made me feel experience great freedom as a writer and illustrator.

I had interviewed Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry in Los Angeles decades ago. It was a time before there were any Star Trek motion pictures. He admitted to me that he had deliberately toned down the futuristic speculations about moral codes and human sexual behavior for the original Star Trek. He made certain that Captain Kirk and other characters behaved in ways morally and sexually that would be recognizable and accepted by network television viewers during the 1960s.

I chose to do the exact opposite. I created situations in which gay men a few hundred years from now behave in ways that we today would consider to be sexually immoral and against various laws. In doing so, I set myself free as a writer and illustrator.

I certainly planned and outlined what I intended to write or depiction in illustrations, and fleshed out character traits, speaking patterns, behaviors, appearance, and so on. Yet, my creative process mainly involved sitting down at a computer and capturing digitally what I “saw” in my mind about the near future. Inspiration for plot development, dialogue, and other crucial creative matters “came to me” as it were from an unconscious or unidentifiable source. I did not struggle to find anything to write about using this process. I never experienced writer’s block. I eventually concluded that this process was (for me) the only way I could produce creative works.

Real Life versus Fiction

The controversial nature of my work has been noticed, of course, by fans of my illustrations. But, what I create is make-believe. I do not advocate for exploitation or violence in sexual behaviors of gay men. I write about those concepts and I also create explicit illustrations of what those sexual behaviors may look like.

I produced my science fiction time travel adventure novel using the kind of format that reveals very early on to readers whether my controversial science fiction storytelling is something they will find appealing. The illustrations that accompany my science fiction storytelling for my novel are neither subtle or obscure. The illustrations are a clear example of how I let my audience know what they can expect from me. I promise a very wild ride to all who venture out into the stunning near-future world that I envisioned for my storytelling and illustrations.

Baja Clavius Paperback Released

baja clavius 5 book covers

Intended for adults 18+ only. For those who want additional insight and guidance from the author/illustrator. This is not a substitute for reading the short book series.

 
Ted AvilaTed Avila is sent in a time machine from the moon in the 23rd century to Bullhead, Arizona in the 1990s.

Ted is a gay man. He has been given one particular mission to change men’s behaviors using sexual manipulation of them. The desired outcome is to change what happens in April 1995 in the domestic terrorism incident in Oklahoma City.

Vincent Wauneka, also a gay man, is a native-born Navajo. He shares an intensely pleasurable sexual relationship with Ted. In Bullhead, both men join a gym and become clients of a particular personal trainer, Carlo Zarelli, who introduces them to performance enhancing drugs (steroids) as were commonly used by males at gyms especially during the 1990s.

Vincent Wauneka

We learn that both Ted and Vincent serve as time-travel agents. They are employed by the mysterious and highly-secretive international military agency called MMDI—code-named “Moon Men Deep Inside” based on the initials.

MMDI sends its all-gay men on missions to change the past on Earth through the use of regular sexual manipulation of men by men. The rationale for changing the past is MMDI computer models that prove human civilization on planet Earth will descend into chaos without MMDI continually “repairing” timelines in the past.

Vincent and Ted hanged

In the line of duty on such repair missions to the past, both Ted and Vincent repeatedly are killed—most often by being hung by their necks until dead. MMDI brings both men back to life using time travel. In Arizona they discover widespread ritualistic hangings taking place in the 1990s, which everyone knows did not actually happen in United States history. The two time travelers keep being sent back to the 1990s in Arizona by MMDI to attempt to change history so that there will be no ritualistic hangings in the late 20th century—how everyone knows events in history were “supposed to” turn out.

But, Ted is not a patient man. He becomes obsessed and angry with his employer after many deaths and MMDI resurrections that both he and Vincent are forced to experience. Ted strongly believes that he is suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and significant memory losses resulting from time travel, even after repeated assurances by a medical doctor at MMDI that Ted is perfectly healthy.

Personal trainer beheaded

The personal trainer for both Ted and Vincent frequently goes to a Mexican border town on the Arizona state line to buy steroids that he then sells at the Bullhead gym. On one such shopping trip to the farmacia, a Mexican drug gang removes his head. Ted makes several attempts to use time travel to change the past specifically so he can prevent the execution of Carlo Zarelli in that border town by a drug gang. But, Ted learns about an impossible choice he must face. If he spares Carlo from beheading, Ted will bring about the direct outcome of an increase in the number of casualties at the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

As with the mafia, there is no way for a person to quit working at MMDI. To give meaning to their suffering and get back at at their employer, Ted and Vincent conspire to take sensitive, top-secret details about the time-travel agency for release to the public in the 20th century. Their intent is to make the general public aware of the presence of MMDI in this misguided attempt at revenge against their employer.

Vincent travels to the past to persuade writers to craft a science fiction novel and movie screenplay with embedded secrets about MMDI. He is successful. But, the outcome of releasing such top-secret details in the 20th century is not what Ted and Vincent expect. MMDI prevails in secrecy and power. Now Ted and Vincent believe that their lives are in jeopardy because they fear MMDI will likely seek retribution.

But, all priorities are shifted on the day that MMDI discovers alien life of high intelligence from another galaxy is responsible for leaving a substance on the moon that was used to make possible human time travel technology. Ted and Vincent are assigned to investigate after time travel missions start suffering from interference apparently initiated by the alien life. Against their will, Ted and Vincent are deliberately injected with alien DNA by an MMDI scientist. Was this the attempt at retribution that both time travelers feared would happen? Their enhanced DNA gives both men the ability to travel in time merely using their minds without any technology whatsoever. While being examined in the medical section of Baja Clavius, Ted and Vincent die suddenly in an apparent accident.

Dani Zaman

A third MMDI agent, Dani Zaman, also receives the alien DNA without first giving his consent. His body does not handle the alien DNA very well. Zaman lapses into a rage that results in him destroying the Baja Clavius MMDI base before drowning himself in the Pacific Ocean.

Marvin Mainer, an employee of MMDI in Washington, DC, is recruited to investigate why and how Zaman destroyed the Baja Clavius base.

Marvin Mainer

Mainer is brought in from his office job in Washington, DC to the top-secret underground Yucca Mountain, Nevada base of MMDI. He reluctantly becomes a time traveler after he is assigned by MMDI to investigate how the lunar base was destroyed which killed all personnel living there.

Mainer’s findings explain why the lunar base was destroyed: Alien life manipulated Dani Zaman after he received their DNA. They forced Zaman to bring about the destruction of Baja Clavius. Their reason was that the technology to send MMDI agents on missions to change the past had unintended consequences—violent damage was done to the aliens’ home galaxy during each instance of the use of time travel technology on the moon. The most simple solution was for the aliens to manipulate Zaman to destroy Baja Clavius to stop the violent damage.

Mainer becomes the fourth MMDI agent to receive alien DNA without giving his consent. Unlike the original three MMDI agents (Ted Avila, Vincent Wauneka, and Dani Zaman) who received alien DNA, only Mailer manages to survive.

Like Ted and Vincent had shown was possible before their deaths, Mainer also learns how to travel in time using only his mind. Drawing upon his newfound knowledge and experience, Mainer travel back in time to prevent the Chinese from ever developing time travel. Instead, Mainer creates a second generation of MMDI to restart time-travel operations (without the use of machinery or technology) to change timelines of the past on Earth and prevent chaos from overtaking human civilization.

One major catch for this second-generation of MMDI agents is that each man much agree to accept a very painful injection of alien DNA that is also both permanent and not reversible. The chief incentive is that if they survive the presence of alien DNA, they will be forever young men and immortal, not to mention becoming top-secret time-travel heroes.

Mainer is rewarded for his efforts by being appointed the new Director of MMDI. He successfully re-establishes a new Clavius moon base where MMDI agents may live and travel in time without using technology.

Vincent Wauneka, Ted Avila, Dani Zaman

Mainer repays the loyalty and service of the three MMDI agents who were the first humans to receive the alien DNA by bringing them into the corrected timeline at the re-established moon base and puts them back into rotation as time travel agents working for the new MMDI.

Not surprisingly, several MMDI agents at Clavius base become fixated with thoughts about the alien life whose DNA runs through their veins. They start a religious cult comprised of MMDI agents on the moon. The cult’s purpose is to praise, honor, and worship the alien life, which they call “The One True Blue God.”

The One True Blue God

The cult starts forcing MMDI agents who are not believers in the religion to worship the aliens to have unwanted orgasms before killing them.

author /illustrator

Such violent tactics motivate the MMDI agents who are not cult members to defend their base with a vengeance. Violent anti-cult battles erupt at Clavius base as the two factions fight for dominance. The base is once again threatened with total destruction.

The alien life intercedes and MMDI agents work with them using time travel to neutralize the cult and save Baja Clavius from being destroyed by the violence. For the first and only time, a new leader of MMDI is put in charge by the aliens, not by the consortium of nations that funds the agency and the moon base.

personal trainer

The new Director of MMDI is Edward Primero. He immediately implements a very harsh workplace culture at the lunar base using sexual manipulation and rape. He becomes the most powerful and successful leader of the base because he intolerantly dominates all the young men who work for him on the moon.


Story

Baja Clavius — the story

Baja Clavius 5 book covers

This is intended for adults 18+ only. At its most simple level, Baja Clavius is about repairmen. These repairmen have a fairly unusual job, however, compared to repairmen who fix washing machines or computers. They are repairmen who use a time machine to travel on missions back to the past to fix timelines.

In Baja Clavius the main reason for the existence of time travel is not to take the reader on a showcase of dazzling technology that produces grand and sweeping high concept adventures. No, not at all.

The time travelers in Baja Clavius are repairmen whose missions are to change people and events in the past to keep timelines from becoming worn down and generating chaos for humanity. What matters most is the human adventures that they experience as men—not that they are on top-secret time travel missions from the 23rd Century.

 

22nd Century

2190 – Chinese explorers discover an unknown substance beneath crater Clavius on the moon. They name the substance lunar blue.

2191 – In Nanchang, China time travel experiments using lunar blue result in a mass casualty event later named the “Nanchang Blue Inferno.” This motivates China to end all their time travel experiments.

2191 – Immediately following the Nanchang Blue Inferno an agency codenamed MMDI is formed by the most wealthy and powerful nations on Earth (excluding China) for the purpose of developing time travel. A lunar base, nicknamed Baja Clavius, is established beneath crater Clavius for the location of the time travel operations to avoid problems for time travel caused by Earth’s gravity. For the next 94 years, MMDI sends agents from Baja Clavius to the past on Earth to correct timelines as part of an ongoing effort to prevent human civilization from destroying itself in the future.

23rd Century

2284 – A discovery is made proving there is extraterrestrial interference that jeopardizes MMDI time travel operations at Baja Clavius. All time travel missions are halted while efforts continue for 47 years to find a way to end the extraterrestrial interference and restart missions to correct timelines on Earth.

24th Century

2331 – Baja Clavius is destroyed resulting in significant loss of life on the moon and the end of time travel operations from the lunar base. MMDI continuity of operations protocols immediately take effect in a top-secret base inside Yucca Mountain in the state of Nevada. A young computer memory scientist already employed by MMDI in Washington, DC, is brought to Yucca Mountain so he can lead the investigation into what happened on the moon. The scientist goes on to create a second generation MMDI time travel operation on the moon at Baja Clavius.

Diversity

Diversity and Inclusion

Commentary by Madeira Desouza

 
Baja Clavius is queer science fiction for adults 18+ only with an unusually strong diversity minus stereotyping. There is no racism here at all like you will find in real life wherever gay men can be found.

In Baja Clavius major gay male characters are masculine gay men who are African American, Arabic, Asian, Latino, and Native American Indian (among other ethnic groups.) These characters go against the grain of typically insulting cultural stereotypes of gay men who usually are depicted as flamboyant or effeminate.

The character images, names, and descriptions from left to right are:

  1. Ted Avila (time travel agent), whose surname is found in French, Latino, and Portuguese people.
  2. Back row, Dani Zaman (time travel agent) born to American parents in the State of Qatar; his first name in Arabic means near or close; his surname in Arabic means time or age or era.
  3. Middle row, Markus Tagawa (director of time travel operations), Japanese American.
  4. Back row, Nicholas Cruz, Mexican American born in Arizona.
  5. Front row, Marvin Mainer (director of time travel operations), African American.
  6. Back row, Anthony Marugo (time travel agent), Japanese American.
  7. Front row: Vincent Wauneka (time travel agent), Native American Indian born in the Navajo Nation.

Anthony Marugo

If you’re thinking “I prefer white guys” when you see the images of the Baja Clavius characters, your are incorrect in how you express yourself.

You can correctly say I prefer Pepperoni pizza and dislike all the rest. But, whenever you say I prefer white guys, you are expressing to the world one simple truth: YOU ARE BEING RACIST.

If you do not prefer to read queer sci-fi stories or view images of gay male characters who are other than all-white, I am asking you to leave right now.

I choose diversity and inclusion. This means I do not hang out with people who are racists or who exhibit racist behaviors or speech.

 


Storyteller and Artist

I am Madeira Desouza, a gay man living in Las Vegas, Nevada. I produce creative works as a storyteller and artist intended for adults 18+ only.
 

Interview

Why did you get started doing digital illustrations so late in your life?

Madeira Desouza: I was in my 30s when personal computers became available to the general public. And, I did not admit to myself and to others that I was gay until a decade and half after that point. Until I came out, I did not have the courage to express myself artistically as a gay man. I could not even be honest that I was gay, so how could I possibly attempt anything in terms of visual expression of myself? I was a total liar! The compelling drawings of two underground artists—Tom of Finland and Dom “Etienne” Orejudos—influenced me greatly and their works I have greatly admired over the decades. When I was younger I fantasized about having the skill and talent to produce visually compelling works like they did during their lives. My visual sensibilities were influenced as well by the very popular science fiction illustrations of Boris Vallejo. I am not someone who creates with pencil or pen upon paper, but using 21st century computers and software gave me the chance to create similar works to theirs in terms of themes and visual aesthetics.

Do you care about the differences between those who create using digital technology versus those who use old-school methods?

Madeira Desouza: I was in an Apple store once when I saw a store employee wearing a T-shirt that said, “I paint with a computer.” That really impressed me! I use a Mac and I think that “painting with a computer” is the new normal nowadays. The traditional, manual methods will always be available to those who want to use them to create visual works. But, I prefer using the 21st century methods because that’s just how my mind works. Martin of Holland once criticized me in a personal email to me in which he expressed his strong opinion that those (like himself) who use traditional methods are the only ones who should be considered “real” artists. He’s gone now and I don’t speak ill of the dead. But, Martin of Holland’s opinion about who gets to be considered “real” as an artist is rooted in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Do you envision that your visual works merit calling you an artist?

Madeira Desouza: I choose to define myself as a digital illustrator. Some call this 3D digital art. But, by whatever name, I want other gay men around the world to have the opportunity to see the visual works that I create. That’s why I use the Internet to share my digital illustrations.

Is there a story behind your name?

Madeira Desouza: Yes, this is a pseudonym. I’m a citizen of the United States, born in California. My heritage is Portuguese from both my parents. Madeira is the Portuguese word for wood. My nickname is Woody. The surname Souza comes from my old country grandfather on my mother’s side. So, the name has the meaning of Souza wood or woody from Souza.

In 1990 I made the decision to leave my wife, file for a divorce, and relocate from New England back to the Western States. Those three mileposts in my life opened me up to make changes in who I was and how I lived. I chose to focus upon storytelling and the visual arts, but I did not want to use my legal name.

When I was a boy, I had an irrational fear that I would turn out to be merely an ordinary man. When I was in my 20s during journalism school, I grew to admire writers who distinguished themselves through their professional works. I developed a very strong attraction to the well-known practice of writers who use a pseudonym. I knew that Mark Twain was the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Filtered through the perceptions of my youth, that was the coolest thing I had ever come to know about the writing profession.

No surprise that Mark Twain has remained my favorite American writer of all time. Not that I think I am as good as he was or ever will be. But, I seek to be humorous like him, to tell vivid and imaginative stories like he told, and, yes, to have a memorable nom de plume like his. I created a pseudonym for myself that would sound considerably more Old World ethnic compared to my own birth name while being a name that everyone should recognize no ordinary person would ever have.

It does not really matter whether someone with a pseudonym is prominent and globally identifiable like Mark Twain or Stephen King or J.K. Rowling or Jay Z. The simple reality is that having a pseudonym is a timeworn way of differentiating yourself from everyone else.

What have other gay men said about your works?

Madeira Desouza: I honestly accept that what I do is not going to appeal to a “mass audience” in the gay world. Some gay men have said that they especially like how I depict men so realistically and yet it’s obvious that the men I create do not exist in the world that we all live in. Others have said that my work is too extreme because of violence and how the men I create treat each other sometimes so brutally. But, I work within the bara genre, which is a genre that a much smaller audience finds appealing–compared to other genres of visual works. Bara genre works depict gay male same-sex feelings and sexual identity with masculine or muscular males that is sometimes violent and exploitative. The more vanilla works of young and shirtless gay men falling in love with other young and shirtless gay men are a lot more safe and less emotionally challenging for the viewer. So, yeah, those works are going to have a “mass audience” compared to the bara genre.

Do you deliberately produce works that are not “safe” and “unchallenging emotionally” for the viewer?

Madeira Desouza: Guilty as charged.

Why?

Madeira Desouza: Because I choose to provoke the viewer. That choice is deliberate on my part. When I look around me at the straight world, I see straight people who do not like to see masculine men showing affection towards one another. Straight men and women will accept drag performers like RuPaul Charles, whom I greatly admire as a genius and always enjoy watching. Straight people derive pleasure from enjoying laughs at the satirical comedy and the sexual ironies that RuPaul excels at. I think that major Hollywood comedies featuring men in drag such as the Mike Nichols film The Birdcage are also “safe” and “unchallenging emotionally” for straight people. That nonthreatening kind of gay man is what seems to find a “mass audience” at least by Hollywood standards. But, I don’t work in Hollywood. I choose to depict muscular and masculine men who connect with one another emotionally, physically and sexually. And yes because I am working within the bara genre, I use violence and exploitation as themes. What I do is considered provocative. And this is no accident.

Did you intend to provoke people with your novel as well?

Madeira Desouza: Yes, of course. That was my intent. My science fiction time travel novel is now entitled Baja Clavius. It was originally released in the early 2010s under different titles, but I started writing it decades ago during the 1990s before I had ever begun doing any digital illustrations. Provoking readers is a very different process compared to provoking viewers with visual works. I chose the science fiction genre deliberately so that my novel would turn out to be emotionally challenging and not at all “safe” in the intellectual or visceral sense. Baja Clavius is a science fiction about time travel, but it is also true to the bara genre because I depict gay male same-sex feelings and sexual identity with masculine, muscular males that is sometimes violent and exploitative. My target audience is gay males, but I suspect that straight females will enjoy it because straight females are known to enjoy the bara genre. I doubt that this science fiction novel will ever become a Hollywood movie–and that’s fine with me–because this is unfilmable on many levels. However, I continue to believe Baja Clavius would be excellent as a series on streaming services such as Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix.

You’ve mention Hollywood a couple of times now. How does Hollywood fit into what you do?

Madeira Desouza: I worked in Hollywood. That was back in the day when I was in my 20s. I lived and worked in the other great American nexus of fantasies and fabrications, Washington, DC, from the mid-1990s through the early 2010’s. I relocated in 2012 to Las Vegas, Nevada.

You see similarities between Hollywood, Las Vegas, and Washington, DC?

Madeira Desouza: Yeah, I do. All three places exist to create fantasies and fabrications. Deception or trickery is at the heart of what gets done in Hollywood, Las Vegas, and Washington, DC. But, Hollywood and Las Vegas are all about show business. There’s an emphasis upon business–making a good name and money for oneself and for bringing wealth to corporations. In contrast, Washington, DC is all about the fight to attain and maintain power for oneself and for governmental organizations and for corporations. Hollywood and Las Vegas produce entertaining deceptions. The normal process is that the audience chooses to willingly suspend disbelief and buy into the deceptions and go along with deceptions because doing so is what is expected. That’s the tradition after over a century of show business coming from Hollywood. Las Vegas is slightly younger than Hollywood in terms of show business. But, in both places, the audience knows what is expected of them. Meanwhile, Washington, DC also produces deceptions–some are entertaining and others are tragic. But, unlike with Hollywood or Las Vegas, in Washington, DC the big difference is that there is no willing suspension of disbelief in the deceptions. This is not a subtle point, either. The point is that deception which demands willing suspension of disbelief is not at all dangerous. The deception from Washington, DC is somehow perceived as reality even though deception by any other name will always be deception.

Baja Clavius
was written and illustrated by Madeira Desouza of Las Vegas intended for adults 18+ only. Why this is for gay adult males. The stories are about young male time travel agents who work for a top-secret agency code-named Moon Men Deep Inside (MMDI) located beneath the crater Clavius on the moon. You may want to start by looking at the hundreds of images created by the author.

Baja Clavius is fun, stimulating, sexy, provocative, and a very wild ride.

What if you could change the past to make the present and the future better? Would you sacrifice the lives of people from yesterday to improve the lives of people tomorrow? An international agency (MMDI)  located deep beneath a crater on the moon sends male time travel agents back to the past to repair timelines. They use sex with other men to alter events in time. But, there are unintended outcomes!

Paperback Book Available

The big, thick, and uncut Baja Clavius is available in paperback exclusively from Amazon.

There are many benefits of having a paperback book that you read as compared to using a device. You look cool and smart, for instance, if you walk into a room carrying a paperback book. Getting this paperback book brings all 26 episodes of Baja Clavius together for the very first time.

This is controversial science fiction adventure about time travel agents with very bad behaviors. It is for adults 18+ only. A few hundred years from now, these time travel agents work within a top-secret agency located beneath the crater Clavius on the moon. Their time-travel missions take them to Earth in the past where they ruthlessly manipulate men who are targeted for their roles in historical events.

Baja Clavius is similar in storytelling style and tone to the works of Russell T Davies (Cucumber and Banana, Doctor Who and Torchwood on the BBC), and, to the works of author Christopher Trevor.

Here you will experience radically different storytelling from standard cause-and-effect fiction. Baja Clavius is true to the bara underground art genre. One recent comment about my stories says it all quite clearly: “Your kind of stories are truly not found elsewhere.”

Madeira Desouza says: Most writers will admit what I admit here: We do not like violence and exploitation in everyday living. We write about violence and exploitation. It’s fiction. It’s only pretend. It’s only art. It’s merely make-believe. I suspect that what I’ve created probably will not be made into a traditional Hollywood movie or television show because the story and characters do not fit into the framework of major motion pictures or television shows that tell science fiction stories. Yet, I definitely can imagine this would make show business sense as a series of episodes for streaming on Amazon or Hulu or Netflix.


Here is How High The Moon — theme song for Baja Clavius:

Baja Clavius

Set a few hundred years from today, Baja Clavius transports you to a world not like our own. Male time travel agents are valued for the work they do. These time travel agents are doing noble work that they believe will save our species. However, in the real world in which we presently live, the time travel agents’ behaviors are considered immoral and illegal. Is the future of the human species worth using immoral and illegal behaviors?

The Baja Clavius short book series is not like any storytelling you have experienced. It is for adults 18+ only. You will be unable to set these stories down once you start reading them!

Desperate White Supremacists

We may all easily recall Desperate Housewives, the 2004 to 2012 television series on the ABC network. But, we may not be sufficiently savvy to perceive desperate white supremacists in these United States. Perhaps this commentary will shed some light on the topic that may become a network television series, too, in the not-so-distant future on Sinclair Broadcasting Group nationwide for rednecks everywhere.

Look no further than to Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017 to find clear-cut and very obvious examples of desperate white supremacists. Unfortunately, I suspect that after this commentary appears online, there may be other examples elsewhere outside of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I easily would anticipate such a violent outburst in the great state of Texas, for instance.

In August 2017, I happened to publish a fictional story that stands as an antithesis to desperate white supremacists. I offer this to anyone who is against desperate white supremacists. What I wrote is entitled Baja Clavius: Moon Men Deep Inside. Visit BajaClavius.com for more details. There is a free download, so no purchase is necessary, and there is no obligation to buy anything at all.

I am not attempting to cash in on the debate over white supremacy here in my country. I happened to have lived in the Commonwealth of Virginia for nearly 20 years, but now I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. What I wrote took decades to finish starting back in 1990. This work (finally!) was completed years before Trump promised to “make America great again” and other such blatant pandering to desperate white supremacists going on these days here in our beloved country, the United States of America.

If you are reading this you deserve to have an alternative to the pandering to desperate white people by Trump and his kind even if you happen to be one of those desperate white supremacists. Trump got elected primarily because white people in the United States were sincerely and undeniably afraid of being displaced culturally and politically by blacks from everywhere and by Hispanics from Mexico, in particular.

Whether Trump believes any of that pandering propaganda he espouses is beyond my expertise to discern. He may be brilliant. He may be insane. Who knows? I am not qualified to make that determination either way. So, you have to judge Trump for yourself.

But, I am qualified to write Baja Clavius: Moon Men Deep Inside as much as anyone is qualified to write science fiction nowadays. I promise you that this work of science fiction is an alternative to hatred of blacks and Hispanics. Go to BajaClavius.com to download your FREE copy right now and set yourself free from the Trump propaganda machinery (otherwise known as Fox News Channel, Sinclair Broadcast Group, and names we know and love so well.)

Baja Clavius: Moon Men Deep Inside is an alternative to the commonly-held belief in these United States in an interventionist deity. He is popularly known as God the Father and/or God the Almighty.

If you believe the undeniable genius of the Dutch artists of the Renaissance, then you already believe that this interventionist deity sports a big white beard and has blue eyes. And, yes, of course, like the Dutch Masters, God in Heaven above has light-colored skin.

This Dutch-defined interventionist deity of certain Caucasian origins lives “up there” somewhere in another dimension otherwise known as Heaven. At God’s side is his only son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And, there’s also a third deity as well. He is named the Holy Ghost. He completes the trinity that we all are supposed to worship if we are expecting to be going to Heaven when we die.

I was under the age of 10 when I was socialized (i.e., forced through years of brainwashing) to believe that these three gods-in-one are the basis of The One True Church. In comparison, all other religions are known to be “fake news” but we didn’t have the gall to use that sorry phrase back in the 1950s which Trump (who is older than me) believes was the sole time that American was, indeed, what he calls “great.” What Trump means, of course, is there once was at that time in these United States that had far less of cultural impact of black people as well as people from Central America. Those days are gone forever and cannot be ushered back by anyone.

I was born and raised in California. There I met many black people and people from Mexico, specifically. So, because of my upbringing in California, I naturally have a died-in-the-wool suspicion of people (like Trump) who were born in New York City. Nor do I accept the lies I’ve been sold about black people and people from Mexico.

I learned to think for myself. I learned to evaluate people based on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin or their country of origin.

Happily for me, over the decades I have met many wonderful people who were born in New York City who someone did NOT turn out to be chiefly arrogant and aggressive but lack sufficient content of character as do Trump and all his offspring.

My writing and my 3D digital art, and, especially Baja Clavius: Moon Men Deep Inside are, taken together, intended as a celebration for those of you out there who think for yourselves and who have learned the secret of evaluating people for their content of their character. But, who am I? Well, the honest truth is: I am a white gay male atheist over the age of 65 who was born in the leftist state of California.

Readers’ Reviews

If you’re looking for something really different in sci-fi erotica, there’s nothing quite so unique as the writings of Madeira Desouza. In his latest novella, Desouza takes us on a wild roller coaster ride with a group of moon-based time travelers who embark on a series of missions to change Earth’s past. Building on the memorable characters and plots from his previous successes, Desouza enhances his unpredictable yet brilliant writing with all-new, original illustrations created just for this volume. The story is a stunner, the artwork is a surprise with the overall effect being lustful, fiery, shocking and hilarious. Politically correct it isn’t but for fans of either genre it’s a journey you won’t want to miss! [Amazon.com review of 2012 edition no longer available]

………………………………………………………………………….

queer science fictionTime travel is one of the most interesting and rich themes in science-fiction. It offers so many variations for dealing with paradoxes and inconsistencies that arise from changing the past. Madeira Desouza’s gay erotic tale of time-traveling agents raises a question I have never seen posed before: how do time travelers cope with the changes that have been wrought in their home world by their efforts to fix problems in the past. MMDI—which is both the title of the book and a play on the acronym for the agency—suggests the agents will have to be effectively brainwashed upon their return so that they are not traumatized by the consequences of their actions. So then, what if an agent can’t forget?

This book is occasionally delightfully sexy. But the most intriguing parts of the story are the occasional recurrences where events are repeated with slight changes because the protagonist Time Travel Agent goes back and tries to change outcomes. The sexiness is fun, but the time travel is mind-boggling in just the way a good science fiction novel can be entrancing and satisfying. [Amazon.com review of 2010 edition no longer available]

………………………………………………………………………….

queer science fictionIt’s a courageous step. Gay science fiction can be a very hard sell indeed, which is why too little of it is published (that is, gay science fiction as distinct from the oceans of erotica being churned out by the m/m e-presses, most of which is barely recognizable as science fiction, and much more easily identified as erotica with futuristic props and set dressing!) [2011 review]

………………………………………………………………………….

This is definitely not your “normal” read. I think that if you are a GLBT Doctor Who or Torchwood fan you might be more inclined to find this an interesting read as I did. It’s been a couple of days since I’ve finished reading it and I’m still processing the story.

This is a huge eBook and it contains all the Madeira Desouza novellas together in one bundle. I’d like to read more of his novels.

Thank you for an interesting read, Madeira Desouza! [2013 review]

………………………………………………………………………….

queer science fictionI read Moon Men Deep Inside and it really was an exciting ride. I have no other way to describe it but a “ride.” The pace of the book was superb. I would be moving along and then “bam!” the unexpected would happen.

Your ability to weave the multi-timeline plot was impressive. I continuously found myself being surprised by events.

I must admit, the first chapter made me a bit nervous. I thought the book was going to take the direction of straight-up erotica with no real story or depth behind it. Boy was I wrong! [2012 review]

In almost everything you read, you find which character you would be, and with the books you really love, you can cast everyone in your life as someone in the novel. Surprisingly this book was no different for me. I binge-read this book until I could finish the whole thing, staying up late nights and avoiding sleep because you just couldn’t put it down. A must read because you will get deeply invested in the lives of the character, and you will feel like you know them. [November 2017 review posted on Amazon.com.]

………………………………………………………………………….

Amazon.com.BAJA CLAVIUS is more than out of this world – it evades comparison. Our protagonist Ted Avila is a former military man commissioned to become a top-secret time travel agent on a lunar base nicknamed “Moon Men Deep Inside” located beneath the crater Clavius. His mission is to repair timelines in the past to save humanity by employing his insatiable carnal appetite and penchant for domination.

Along the way, the incredibly virile Ted becomes sexually involved with many buff, muscle-bound men on Earth, all in conflicting timelines. Vincent Wauneka – Ted’s oft-partner in both vocation and lust – is typically along for the very bumpy and murderous ride. But it’s not all as easy for Ted as simply following his lascivious instincts. He can remember multiple timelines even after changing them, creating a psychic cacophony peppered with perceived memory loss, flashbacks, experiential repetition, and a colorful array of cognitive dissonance.

And there’s a lot more going on: Wild West execution-style hangings, kinky voyeurism, international drug trafficking, telepathic erotic mind control, alien meddling in DNA and more. This can make for sometimes confusing leaps in plot, time, and sequences of action, perhaps as a nod to the protagonist’s bouts of amnesia. However, for the reader it can make for a baffling, groundless context.

Author Madeira Desouza created the most recent edition of BAJA CLAVIUS thanks to robust reader feedback and crowdsourcing. This seems to lead to a bit of stylistic and formatting disorientation in the story. It might also account for the series of copyediting errors throughout.

Where BAJA CLAVIUS shines is in its description of the natural world, invoking the Southwest postcard nostalgia of jagged rocks, the neon lights of garish casinos, lonely highways, and the bleak, unforgiving desert. Desouza also offers esoteric and compelling scenes of action. Indeed, the story insists that, like the characters, the reader reluctantly disrupt any expectations of space and time. This makes for a worthwhile examination of action and consequence.

It’s important to note BAJA CLAVIUS espouses the bara genre, a Japanese underground art form known for sex among adult men. Still, even outside of this community, the rugged, rough-hewn intensity of Desouza’s work bears merit. Niche queer fetish escapades collide with clandestine cowboy missions from the moon in BAJA CLAVIUS. While this oftentimes violent and sprawling sci-fi thriller is not for everyone, it offers compelling imagery and curious insights into a boundless universe.

authorIf you’re looking for something really different in sci-fi erotica, there’s nothing quite so unique as the writings of Madeira Desouza. In his latest novella, Desouza takes us on a wild roller coaster ride with a group of moon-based time travelers who embark on a series of missions to change Earth’s past. Building on the memorable characters and plots from his previous successes, Desouza enhances his unpredictable yet brilliant writing with all-new, original illustrations created just for this volume. The story is a stunner, the artwork is a surprise with the overall effect being lustful, fiery, shocking and hilarious. Politically correct it isn’t but for fans of either genre it’s a journey you won’t want to miss! [Amazon.com review of 2012 edition no longer available]

time travelTime travel is one of the most interesting and rich themes in science-fiction. It offers so many variations for dealing with paradoxes and inconsistencies that arise from changing the past. Madeira Desouza’s gay erotic tale of time-traveling agents raises a question I have never seen posed before: how do time travelers cope with the changes that have been wrought in their home world by their efforts to fix problems in the past. MMDI—which is both the title of the book and a play on the acronym for the agency—suggests the agents will have to be effectively brainwashed upon their return so that they are not traumatized by the consequences of their actions. So then, what if an agent can’t forget?

This book is occasionally delightfully sexy. But the most intriguing parts of the story are the occasional recurrences where events are repeated with slight changes because the protagonist Time Travel Agent goes back and tries to change outcomes. The sexiness is fun, but the time travel is mind-boggling in just the way a good science fiction novel can be entrancing and satisfying. [Amazon.com review of 2010 edition no longer available]

time travel agentIt’s a courageous step. Gay science fiction can be a very hard sell indeed, which is why too little of it is published (that is, gay science fiction as distinct from the oceans of erotica being churned out by the m/m e-presses, most of which is barely recognizable as science fiction, and much more easily identified as erotica with futuristic props and set dressing!)

This is definitely not your “normal” read. I think that if you are a GLBT Doctor Who or Torchwood fan you might be more inclined to find this an interesting read as I did. It’s been a couple of days since I’ve finished reading it and I’m still processing the story.

This is a huge eBook and it contains all the Madeira Desouza novellas together in one bundle. I’d like to read more of his novels.

Thank you for an interesting read, Madeira Desouza! [2013 review]

Vincent WaunekaI read Moon Men Deep Inside and it really was an exciting ride. I have no other way to describe it but a “ride.” The pace of the book was superb. I would be moving along and then “bam!” the unexpected would happen.

Your ability to weave the multi-timeline plot was impressive. I continuously found myself being surprised by events.

I must admit, the first chapter made me a bit nervous. I thought the book was going to take the direction of straight-up erotica with no real story or depth behind it. Boy was I wrong! [2012 review]
