Boston Posh Review

Boston Posh by Wol-vriey

☆☆☆☆☆ Superbly executed, brilliantly written!

Very rarely does a book engage my imagination to the point where I enjoyed it so much that I want to experience it again. However, when reading Boston Posh, I can honestly say, it was a blast! Not only did I read it twice, I read it thrice – and back-to-back! It was just honestly so entertaining that I absolutely loved it.

Sometimes you can catch a great movie in the theaters and want to see it again just to catch the parts that you missed. Boston Posh is like that. It is sensory overload and an imagination trip, all wrapped up into one.

Boston Posh has the feel of a pulp fiction/detective novel, only bizarro style. The story takes place in a dystopian future that is overrun by dinosaurs and dragons. Set in Boston, it centers around two primary characters: a private detective named Bud Malone and a high class prostitute named Posh.

Early on, before the two meet, Malone is hired by a rich widow to locate the widow’s missing daughter and must brave the dangers of the monster-overrun town and the evil abductor “Frank” to put together the missing clues of the daughter’s disappearance.

Meanwhile, Posh is trying to escape from her pimp, a guy by the name “Herbie” and his thug-enforcer brother “Bulldog”. As Herbie arranges some very perverse sexual encounters that Posh must endure, she eventually gets fed up, and well, you’ll just have to read the book to see how this all goes down.

Let’s just say that as all hell is breaking loose, Posh and Malone finally get together and what takes place is something only the cleverest wordsmith can pull off, and well, Wol-vriey does it splendidly.

I give Boston Posh an enthusiastic two thumbs up. It is wonderful dark humor, horror, erotica, and transgressive fiction at its best. For adults only, this might be the best novel I have read all year!

Guiltessa Dolores Review

Guiltessa Dolores by Wol-vriey☆☆☆☆☆ Guiltessa Dolores – a primer into Bizarro fiction Wol-vriey style!

If you have never experienced Bizarro-genre fiction and are a bit hesitant to try a full-length novel such as Wol-vriey’s Vegan Zombie Apocalypse, then Guiltessa Dolores novella might be what you are looking for.

As with any piece of transgressive fiction, you must start by suspending disbelief and allowing the words to simply take the mind on a fantasy. Failure to do this will leave you scratching your head and bewildered on stuff that just can’t happen in real life.

However, for those of you who are able to suspend disbelief and allow a Bizarro story to unfold, you will find adventure in Guiltessa Dolores.

This story revolves around a character known simply as “Malone”, although this should be noted that this is not the “Bud Malone” that appears in Wol-vriey’s epic-length Boston Posh novel. In Guiltessa, Malone wakes up to find his skin missing, having been sold by his wife “Tess” to the scorpions for money, since Malone – who once was rich – is now broke.

The story proceeds to take Malone (who is later known as “Mal-Scorpio” by the scorpions) on a journey of wackiness, with run-ins with a skeleton wishing to marry his bones, an alliance with the scorpions, and a grim task that the scorpion queen – Guiltess Dolores – needs his help with.

Here is an excerpt from the tale:

“Do not fear, Mal-Scorpio,” the scorpions clicked to him. “Our covering will protect you from the sewing-needle rain when it falls.”

If you can dig that, you’ll be able to dig this story.
Enjoy!
