2 posts | 1 read
THE ONLY PROPER PLACE FOR ICE IS IN A COCKTAIL . . . Im Derby Cavendishthats pronounced Derby with an ar sound, not an er: remember that for later. Ever since I was a boy, the forces of the otherworldly have been drawn to me like divas to a spotlight. But Im ready for them. Bring it on, bitches. Hes the reason there are no zombies at Christmas, no fairy magic (the bad kind) at Gay Pride, and no werewolves (except one and hes a dear friend) at Hanukkah. Hes Derby Cavendish, and for several years, celebrated author Don Bassingthwaite has been bringing him to life each holiday season. Now for the first time, these flamboyantly funny, supernaturally saucy stories have been brought together in one fabulous, long-awaited collection. (Fruitcake faddler sold separately.) If you like your chills with giggles and glitter, Cocktails at Seven, Apocalypse at Eight is for you!

This collection was a lot of fun: raunchy, humorous and flamboyant. I wasn't sure about the old-school-detective-style interior monologue at first, but it grew on me quickly. And it was interesting to see how the author's voice changed story to story as they were written over a number of years. Would definitely recommend and read again. 4/5 #lqbtq+ #junereads #shortstories #specfic
