'Mechanical Fantasy Box' contains SF-based electronic pioneer and disco producer Patrick Cowley's homoerotic journal. The journal begins in 1974 and ends in 1980 on his 30th birthday. The book chronicles his slow rise to fame from lighting technician at The City Disco to crafting a ground-breaking 16-minute remix of Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love' to performing with Sylvester at the SF Opera House. Vivid descriptions are told of cruising in '70s SoMA sex venues to primal highs in Buena Vista Park and composing pornophonics in his Castro apartment. The book includes contributions from visual artist
Gwenaël Rattkeas well as introductory essays by Josh Cheon, Theresa McGinley and Jorge Socarras.

Also available: MECHANICAL FANTASY BOX (CD), MECHANICAL FANTASY BOX (2LP) (LP).
