Carlo Zee

His legal name is Carlo Zarelli, but he’s known by his nickname, “Carlo Zee.” He is a highly masculine bodybuilder and personal trainer at a gym in Arizona where he meets Vincent Wauneka and Ted Avila. Carlo’s sexual attraction to muscular young men is not a big secret in town.

Madeira Desouza says, If you are an adult and you enjoy reading science fiction about masculine men in situations of danger and peril that feature very explicit man-on-man sexual scenes, I know that you will read enjoy my time science fiction time travel adventures in Baja Clavius.


Tour

Let me give you a very special insider’s tour of my science fiction time travel adventure series, Baja Clavius. I hope that this will help you as a reader to have a much richer experience.  –Madeira Desouza

The Story

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 located deep beneath a crater on the moon sends gay 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!

The Threat

I tell stories and create illustrations about masculine men involved with one another to provoke the viewer.

I have seen all my life how straight people do not like to see masculine men showing affection towards one another. Straight people will accept drag shows and comedies about effeminate gay men. And why not? Those are non-threatening. But, if masculine men are depicted in a story or images showing sexual interest in one another, oh wow, that suddenly becomes very threatening to straight people!

Some gay men I have encountered also find it uncomfortable to witness masculine men showing sexual interest in one another. Gays relegate such masculine men to the pejorative category of being “too butch.” For all of these reasons, I choose to provoke the viewer in my stories and illustrations.

In this specific context of provocation, there is an existing genre that my storytelling and illustrations fits within. It is called the bara genre. The word bara is Japanese. The genre pertains to gay male same-sex feelings and sexuality identity that is sometimes violent and exploitative. According to Wikipedia, the bara genre deals with masculine men with varying degrees of muscle. Such macho men and deemed to be “beefcake” (an outdated term) or more commonly called by the contemporary gay community term, bears.

The Moon

Yes, I do believe that some day in the future time travel will be possible. If I were to tell you that I met a Navajo Indian who persuaded me to write about his work as a time travel agent from the future, you would not believe me. The young Navajo man told me that he worked in the top-secret based on the moon under the crater Clavius. I found that very difficult to accept even though he seemed sincere and credible. He reminded me that Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick situated their fictional lunar base at Clavius for 2001: a space odyssey, but insisted that he worked within the actual lunar base Clavius.

The Repairmen

At its most simple level, my novel is about repairmen. My fictional 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.

My time travelers 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.

The Brain

I gave my novel narrator the capability to remember multiple events and outcomes even after he goes back in time and changes the past. I knew that this would be controversial since the human brain is locked within the one timeline, so to speak, that we each inhabit.

As far as I know, the human brain can only process memories from within that one timeline. But, having a character with brain damage that somehow enables him to preserve and recall memories from multiple timelines that he visits was a very compelling storytelling choice for me. Hopefully, the readers will find that equally compelling.

The Desert

In my novel I set many of the episodes in the Mojave Desert on Earth in a place that I call Bullhead, Arizona.

The inspiration for this comes from a genuine location. I actually lived and worked in Bullhead City, Arizona. (city website | Wikipedia page)

I learned quite a lot about myself and other people because I lived and worked in such an unforgiving desert. The reputation that this region has for being very hot is no exaggeration. I personally experienced summertime temperatures that exceeded 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Navajo

One of my main characters is a young Navajo male named Vincent Wauneka. He is based upon a young Navajo male that I met during my travels within the Navajo Nation. I have great respect for the Navajo people and their culture. Unlike the often stereotypical way that Native Americans are depicted in fictional storytelling, in my novel the Navajo character will never remind you of the cardboard Indian characters you’ve seen in a lot of Hollywood movies.

The Ex-Wife

Gay men who were never married to a woman won’t understand. But, for the rest of you: I created the character named Katherine Snowe as the ex-wife of the narrator, Ted Avila. She is one of only two female characters in my novel, which otherwise is all male.

The behaviors and the speech of this female character come across as extreme and provocative. When I was younger, I was married for several years to a woman who behaved and spoke in such extreme and provocative ways.

All of the narrative elements pertaining to the character of the ex-wife have been drawn from events that I saw with my own eyes and speech that I heard with my own ears. I want you to know that I am not a gay man who hates females. However, I have a very strong belief that no gay man should ever marry a straight female no matter what. That was one of the biggest mistakes that I made in my life, but I am proud that I wised up and corrected my mistake.
