Prolific writer Dale Pierce seems to be cranking out books all of a sudden, more rapidly than customers can keep up with them, both from established publishing houses and the somewhat lesser though faster books-on-demand printing. Tales From The Bullring would be one of the latter, but nonetheless impressive of his works.

 

The book is as of now only available by orders online at http://www.lulu.com/content/5828139 for $18.00 in book form and $3.50 for an economical e-book download. The project is nearly 300 pages of  solid text and no photos, giving tons of information to the reader without illustrations. While the project could well have been enhanced with some shots of the bullfighters mentioned in the book, such is not to be.

From the border bullrings of Mexicali, Nogales, Ciudad Acuna, Reynosa and Juarez to the gigantic circle of sand in Madrid’s Las Ventas arena, Pierce offers tale after tale related to this world of sunlight and slow death. One finds reprinted interviews with the late Curro Rivera and Marcial Lalanda to be riveting, with special note to the latter recounting memories of Manolete, Granero and Nicanor Villata, the last of whom he harbored a little known personal dislike.

 

There are accounts of bullfights in Mexicali, Tijuana, Nogales and Juarez, featuring forgotten toreros such as Mauro Liceaga and Cagancho Hijo. There’s a tale of Manolo Martinez surpassing the challenge of the younger Curro Leal in Tijuana in 1973 and Fernando Dos Santos fighting a bull that received an indulto or pardon in Nogales in 1970.

 

On the heels of the release of Matadores Latinos by Floricanto Press in California, Pierce took matters into his own hands and went with a second project with books on demand.

 

“As of right now, this is an experiment,” he explained. “We will see how it goes. If the sales online are alright and some of the sales set up at border bullrings come to pass, I will go through with getting an ISBN number of place it in the stores. Otherwise, I am simply going to keep things like this and go for foreign reprints. After all, I have one book, Matadores Latinos, available in stores and on the stands already, though it is different from this book. Tales From the Bullring covers much broader territory, where Matadores deals with the history of the defunct bullring in Juarez.”

 

Pierce creates a unique hodge-podge of bullfighting tales, without any particular rhyme or reason, but in doing so binds together a unique work with a wealth of information for anyone interested in the art form. Pierce even offers an alternative in a segment devoted to those opposed to the bullfight. One cannot accuse him of being lopsided in reporting.

 

There are accounts of the fatal gorings of many toreros who died in obscurity such as Antonio Ruiz, Regional, Alejandro Izquierdo, Esteban Garcia and Alejandro Cabrera, who was only 16 years old when he died in a festival in Aguascalientes, after taking a horn wound in the neck.

 

There are fascinating stories of behind-the-scenes episodes concerning Joselito, El Gallo, Belmonte, Armillita, Varelito, and  the independent film-maker, Jeff Stoll, who keeps cranking out Ed Wood type horror films with bullfighting themes.

 

There are accounts of bullfighting museums and graveyards, running of the bulls and drinking fests in fan clubs devoted to specific toreros.
