Everyday Spectres: Billy and Bear
By Vic Winter
Published by Torquere Press ebooks, January 2008

Review by Ida Vega-Landow

Despite being a cat person myself, I liked this little novelette by Vic Winter about a shape shifting man and his lover. Billy is a working class lad toiling at a factory in some anonymous big city; Bear is his faithful dog, a big, brown stray that followed him home from the park one night and turned into a gorgeous man with café latte skin and waist-length dreads. After getting it on in the shower, they wake up together and decide to stay together. [more]

Bringo Springs
By Laney Cairo
Published by Torquere Press

Review by Lynn Loper

One of the great failings of porn is that the authors forget that the characters in their stories are people, and people have lives. They can't just wander off and have uninterrupted sex for weeks on end. They bring their lives and professions with them into their relationships.

In Bringo Springs, it works beautifully. A graduate student is called to his grandfather's farm; granddad is in the hospital, and there are cows to tend and horses to feed. When he gets there, he finds the farm run down and the water offline. A call to the neighborhood handyman produces the handyman's son, Geoff, who sees the rainbow decal on the grad student's car with a happy smile. [more]

Cut Bait
By BA Tortuga
Published by Torquere Press

Review by Lynn Loper

I'm not real big on the usage of sentence fragments to express strong emotions, and it's something that BA Tortuga does in almost every paragraph. Between that, and the fact that the author has a pretty standard style (sketchy introduction of characters, fuck fuck fuck, one more sketchy character scene, the end), his/her work isn't my favorite.
