I have finished reading GHETTOHEAT and found the poems to be amazing. I may not be able to fully relate to all of the poetry, but i can relate to the passion that Hickson writes with. I believe his work is the first I have read in which a man has so passionately professed his sexuality, unafraid of what the cold world might have as a response. Even though I have not had to go through the struggle of being gay and accepted, but I feel that I can still connect with how he felt when trying to find love, or something like it...

I had HICKSON do an open mic/book signing on May 22 and we sold out all his books! I love this guy! He is funny, great to work with and I look forward to bringing him back to do all twelve of our stores in New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia!!! If you don't know what HEAT is then you need to get burned by this F I R E!!! HICKSON keep doing what you do best...BURN THE LITERARY WORLD!!!

BOLD AND COLORFUL. rhythmic and musical, HARD, HARSH, chill, easy, reflective, reverent, whatever the mood's intent, every word delivers an IMPACT, an impact that can be seen, heard, felt, tasted, smelled...but its bigger than that. Hickson is taking on illiteracy among inner-city youth. he's providing a platform for self-expression across media. I definitely recommend reading Ghettoheat!
