Issue 8
Summer 2007
The first collection of solo writings by Bill Landis, including:
-Impossible to find, infamous excerpts of Sleazoid Express and articles considered lost including the 'Deep Fried Streets of Sin' tour of Times Square circa 1984 and the beginnings of the Avon Dynasty from that issue, 'Dollhouse'
-The original cover story interview with Ken Anger from The Soho Weekly News (June 1980)
-The original schedule/flyer for the first month long Sleazoid Express film festival in Spring 1983
-George Payne Superstar: a candid interview with the adult film star recorded at the boxoffice of the Doll Theater with Bill Landis for Sleazoid Express (1983)
-The Sporting Life - Our john in the field John Friday gives the lowdown on the cheapest to most expensive hookers and the spots he meets them in New York; originally written for Swank in 1986
-Friday the Sensuous John - a surreal turn on Mr. Friday's life from Sleazoid Express featuring a great deal of material that was censored out of Swank (Sleazoid Express 1985)
-Hustling the Deuce - a candid look at actual lives of Times Square male hustlers that originally appeared in The Village Voice. Written in December 1985 and shelved for 'politically correct' reasons until April 1986
-AIDS FEAR HAMPERS PORNO BUSINESS: XXX Houses Also Feel Impact of Home Video; 'Dark Underbelly' Patronage Doesn't Help - a round up of New York's last existing adult houses, including the foul projectionists' union strike against Mrs. Wilson's Greek Named 8th Avenue smut pits; from Variety, the showbiz bible, December 11, 1985
-Tromatized - from the Film Comment 'That's Exploitation' issue summer 1986 - a look at the bullying tactics and shoddy output of one of the most publicized self-conscious exploitation film studios. With kudos to Troma for saving two classic exploitation obscurities, Sweet Savior (The Love Thrill Murders) and Cry Uncle, from the glue factory.
-Point of Return - Originally published in The Village Voice on September 9, 1992, this look at ACT-UP at their Needle Exchange program also was featured in an ACLU Handbook about the second generation of AIDS and a book called Beyond Crisis.
-Sex Square - In July 18, 1995, the Village Voice waxed nostalgic about the pre-Disneyfied Times Square, and I give a brief re-cap of my career there, from the insane Night Shift Theater, to working at the Avon Chain, and ending with Mrs. Wilson's smut palaces named after Greek Gods of Love on 8th Avenue. The beginnings of the Avon Dynasty story is contained within this piece.
-Go E-Mail the Doctor - This October 15, 2003 story in The Village Voice was the first to come out in support of the new telemedicine industry, though it proved to be personally a double edged sword. It's since been reproduced on numerous drug-seeking messageboards like drugbuyers.com

Issue 7
The 7th issue of SLEAZOID EXPRESS in 2005 was entirely devoted to Joel M. Reed (Blood Bath, Blood Sucking Freaks)and his infamous exploits.
Bill made Reed look like a master scam artist and manipulator of the highest order.

That issue was briefly available from the Sleazoid website but then disappeared from their listings.
Was it a limited edition or did Reed take legal action?

Here's the cover (Thank you Gavin)
