MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 1994

"And next time, with luck, will."
At their best, Laymon's cackling horrors (The Stake, 1991; Night Visions 7, 1989) are the nastiest around—sleek, black- humored, skirting (if not slipping over) the edge of pornoviolence. Read full book review >

THE BEST AMERICAN SEX WRITING 2004 by Dan Savage
Released: Feb. 1, 2005

"Technology-enslaved, boring, all-American: this is pretty dispiriting stuff. Thank goodness Erica Jong is there to remind readers, in closing, that 'wild passionate sex exists.' Even without a credit card and a mouse."

BOOK REVIEW

NON-FICTION
Released: Sept. 13, 1999

"A book of humor and heart and a vision of life lived fully, Savage paints a picture of an ideal home for his and his boyfriend's child in its blemished humanity and right-on queerness; it's a book that can't be put down for the same reasons."
Savage's memoir of his experience with adoption reveals an acid tongue and a boundless heart, a savvy blending of social commentary and self-deprecating humor, with an ending so sentimental that, in comparison to the beatific vision of Daddies Dan and Terry, June and Ward Cleaver would look like Al and Peg Bundy.
