DUNCAN, Okla. — Bob Chinn, creator of the nine-part Johnny Wadd adult film series based on the career of the late iconic porn performer John Holmes, is soon set to release his first novel, “Flesh of the Lotus.”

According to Chinn, the book is based on the second film of the detective series (shot in 1971) and will be the first of six Johnny Wadd novels to be published by BearManor Fiction.

In 2008 BearManor Media published a biography on John Holmes titled, “John Holmes; A Life Measured in Inches” by Jennifer Sugar and Jill C. Nelson.

“Flesh of the Lotus: A Johnny Wadd Novel" was inspired by Chinn's desire to expand upon the original storyline and character; something he was unable to do as a maverick filmmaker in the 1970s within the confines of budget restrictions and time constraints.

“In this book I have tried to depict the character as more or less as I had originally envisioned him and would have liked him to be, and the story is set in the very era in which he was created,” Chinn said.

“It was the era of the Vietnam War when both our country and our society were in the beginning stages of undergoing a radical transformation.

“Johnny Wadd, the private detective character that I have depicted in this book was a part of that revolutionary era and he should not be confused with John Holmes the man, even though somehow they seem to have become almost inextricably linked by history into a single person.”

In related news, the Hollywood production company, Formosa Films, has secured the option for the exclusive rights for a theatrical feature film of Bob Chinn's life story.

The film will center on Chinn's ten year professional relationship with John Holmes and will be co-produced by Will Tiao, the producer and star of the political thriller "Formosa Betrayed" and John Radulovic, producer of the Showtime series "Californication."
