[Review] The Goat – Bill Kieffer

goat-take-2
Cover by Viergatch

The Goat by Bill Kieffer explores the abusive relationship between Frank (a homophobic homosexual) and Glenn (a cock addicted homosexual), while Frank works to turn Glenn into the perfect victim.

Frank is hardheaded, homophobic bully that gets a chub from going out of his way to beat down on gays. Frank tormented fags in high school for sport, and while doing so, paid Glenn a lot of attention.So much attention that Frank eventually finds himself in a car receiving head from the guy, all the while denying that he’s gay.

Frank, out of frustration, welcomes Glenn into his home as long as he knows his place: a cum dumpster with eyes. Glenn, for various reasons, seems more than willing to play the role of the perfect victim.

The Goat takes place in a world with anthropomorphic characters and magic spells. For those that don’t like that don’t groan just yet. I honestly had no idea what the premise of the book was before reviewing, and it didn’t really occur to me until the gay bar fight scene that the story involves magic (wards). 

If you’re turn off from anthropomorphic animals and furries, then I would still recommend checking out The Goat as it might actually creep on you. The Goat advanced on me like a gay guy at a bar. You talk, have a good time, but then later on shrug off his advance with a mutual understanding., but he leaves with a lurking thought: a mouth is just a mouth, right? Seriously, there is so much dude on dude cock sucking that after a while even a straight dick might move a little. The Goat’s inclusion of furries and magic is not like a flamboyant and in your face like an Elton John, but is a fabulous conservative fag like Milo Yiannopoulos, except with less appetite for black cock. A Milo joke, anyone?

The Goat can be a provocateur at times with Frank representing the closeted, homophobic homosexual to the fullest. If you’re offended by gay bashing, then expect Frank to offend you. Likewise, if you’re homophobic and offended by a dude going down on another dude, then you’ll also be offended. But if you give Frank a chance, you might just learn to love him like Glenn does, and Glenn really seems to love his confused experiment.

The Goat reads well. The prose flows and the description is balanced and paced. The Goat does not spend pages describing scenery or the little buttons on a coat. The Goat focuses on the destructive and abusive relationship between a man and his scapegoat. Overall, I rather enjoyed the story and would recommend it.

The Bleeder Review

image

Some stories merely delve into darkness only to pull the reader out from it with some light humor. Others, however, not only descend into the abyss, they thrive in it. Dumping the reader into a dark, brutal, hopeless world so that she has no other choice but to face the fear!

Order The Bleeder on Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004G5ZSTI/ref=aw_ss_kndl_dp/

The Bleeder began as a series of short stories. Following a monstrosity that is both alive and dead. This monstrosity, this colossal of decay and rot, looms in the dark, taking the lives of anything that crosses it’s path, but is it human? Is there a shred of humanity left inside the monster?

Kiss Me Like You Love Me Review

Do remember those moments, when you’re reading through your favorite book, and the author goes on and on about the details of a coat? Looking at you Anne Rice.

What would it be like to read a gripping, engrossing story that doesn’t pussy-foot around the point? What about a story that doesn’t have all that cumbersome filler and delivers an entertaining experience from cover to cover?

It would be Kiss Me Like You Love Me by Wednesday Lee Friday.

A horrific yet humorous tale that delves deep into the mind of a serial killer with mommy issues. Sounds familiar, and may even sound a bit tired for the genre. But it’s so much more than just another copy. Kiss Me Like You Love Me stands on its own with a narrative that flows like a train on consciousness. Wednesday Lee Friday’s unique style gives each paragraph energy to keep you engaged, and the tone may even have you sad for characters you should hate.

And for those that struggle to find time to enjoy a good read, take this as an example. I received a copy of Kiss Me Like You Love Me last night and stormed through it this morning, losing track of time, losing previous stress, and feeling like I went through an experience I would surely read again today.

Kiss Me Like You Love Me by Wednesday Lee Friday is highly recommended.
