My First Book Review

9 November 2010

I got my first review on  Had to share it with my readers.

5 out of 5 stars.

By Amos Lassen

Lately Dreamspinner Press has been publishing some really first-rate novels and such is the case with Wolf Phoenix’s “Irreversible Error”.  Erik Steppenwolf is a cop who finds himself in the middle of Houston’s drag scene where hustlers are also found.  He got there because he was asked by an old friend to investigate her son’s death.  He manages to get Lola, a flamboyant drag queen to help him and she introduces him to the hustlers who may know something about the murderer.  As Erik sits at one of Lola’s shows, he meets a dancer, Red, and the two are immediately attracted to each other and as they start an affair, the murder puzzle begins to come to light and hints and clues that will lead to a murder conviction are exposed but there is still the idea that everything has not been uncovered.  Things between Erik and Red begin to sour and they go their separate ways and Erik decides that his foray in Houston is over and he thinks about moving on. However he still wants to find the truth and is not sure that he is over Red.

Phoenix gives us quite a look at Houston and the characters that dwell in the seedy underworld of drag queens and hustlers. He has created several interesting characters and Erik and Lola, along with others, are wonderfully drawn. I do not want to disclose any more about the plot because to do so would spoil the read. Take my advice, you will keep reading this until you close the covers and then want to start it all over again.

[NOTE:  The book can be purchased from Dreamspinner Press and in several formats:  paperback and digital versions that can be downloaded to your PC, phone, PDA, or Kindle gizmo.]

    JUDGMENT DAY: May 21, 2011

      I, too, look forward to the rapture. It holds out the promise of being the day of liberation for the rest of us who do not subscribe to a narrow-minded view of God. But, alas, I fear that those who are PROUD of their religiosity, JUDGMENTAL, and HATERS of those who are different, will be left behind along with us sinners–that would be gay guys like me–to continue their regimen of hate and judgment. Such a pity that we can’t get along, because it looks like we’re going to be together until death do us part.
