John Holmes Bio Out In August

LOS ANGELES - Jennifer Sugar and Jill Nelson have announced the completion of their book, John Holmes: A Life Measured In Inches. The biography of the late porn performer will be published in August by Bear Manor Media.

The book will be available for purchase at Sugar and Nelson's website, as well as, Barnes & Noble and other outlets.

According to Nelson, the book was conceived four years ago. The publication date, August 8, coincides with what would have been Holmes's 64th birthday.

The book traces the performer's life from his hard-scrabble childhood in rural Pickaway County, Ohio through his glory days playing fictional character Johnny Wadd to his cocaine-addled final years that included an alleged involvement in the infamous and unsolved "Wonderland murders" and Holmes's AIDS-related death.

Included in the biography is new interview material gathered from Laurie Holmes, Bill Amerson, Bob Chinn, Julia St. Vincent, Detective Tom Lange, Detective Frank Tomlinson, Paul Thomas, Ron Jeremy, Seka, Marilyn Chambers, Candida Royalle, Rhonda Jo Petty, Dr. Sharon Mitchell, Bill Margold, and others. Also included are over 100 reviews of John's most notable films, photos and a filmography.
