A Rogue's Decameron consists of ten stories - tales - that loosely follow the fabliaux style and are based within the spirit of Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales and Boccaccio's The Decameron: extravagance, joy and ribald humour around sex, lust, vice, death and other ?hungers' of human beings. Using similar framing technique as these works - a prologue, a short description of each story and an epilogue, the stories explore themes such as social commentary and satire aimed at personal politics, societal mores and customs, hierarchies, and religious beliefs. All with Toronto as a backdrop and brought up to date for the sensibilities of a 21st century audience.

Born in Vancouver, Stan Rogal now lives and writes in Toronto. His work has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies in Canada, the US and Europe, some in translation. He is the author of 21 books: 5 novels, 5 story and 11 poetry collections, including after words (Guernica, 2014). He is also a produced playwright.
