Peter Schutes (1896-1981) served in France during World War I. His predilections caused him to be ejected from the service at the end of his tour of duty. His love for other men was treated as an illness. He spent several years in a California State Hospital, quite unable to change his nature. The experience left scars that took years to heal. He escaped by feigning a "miracle conversion" to heterosexuality.
He did not begin writing until the 1950's. He found catharsis and psychological healing through his short stories and novels that depicted micro-worlds where love and sex between men were natural and free. His graphic language and taboo topics kept his work banned everywhere outside Denmark until the landmark Memoirs vs Massachusetts (Fanny Hill) ruling that led to an explosion in American gay porn. Peter's prolific volumes of steamy men's tales, were some of the finest literature to grace the shelves of dirty bookstores.
