More About the Author

Gary Phillips writes fictional stories of chicanery and malfeasance in various formats, often drawing on his past experiences. He is a Los Angeles native, and was born and raised in the then South Central area of the city. There he was a community activist on issues ranging from police abuse, the anti-apartheid movement and opposing the contras in Central America during the Reagan era.

His most current novel is Warlord of Willow Ridge which Booklist said of the work, "Phillips is a veteran crime novelist who creates a plausible postapocalyptic scenario in which the safety of middle-class America can dissolve in a moment. Exciting, violent, and entertaining." He has also written essays for the Robert B. Parker tribute book, In Pursuit of Spenser and for The Wire: Race, Class, and Genre. Currently with Tommy Hancock and Pro Se Press, Philips is co-editing and contributing to Black Pulp, pulp stories featuring black main characters and editing and contributing to a themed linked anthology of short stories, Night of the Insurgents, showcasing America's super spy before Bauer and Borne, Jimmy Christopher, Operator 5, for Moonstone.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most racist and misogynistic works I have read in years. I gritted my teeth and slogged on through the static artwork and terrible pacing, hoping there would be a payoff for my suffering. There was minimal payoff and the story was offensive to the point of incoherency.

Do not read this if you or anyone you love is: Muslim, black, Jewish, Asian (Chinese), a woman, a person with a disability (uses a wheelchair), to name a few groups who suffer constant slurs in the name of "grittiness." Looking back I am surprised, I don't remember any homophobic slurs beyond a throw away line about the R&B singer having "lesbo" fans.

You finish this with GSR all over your face and your hair blown straight back like you just got off the Formula Rossa 150 MPH rollercoaster in Dubai. Gary Phillips brings it, baby. And he brings it hard.
