Lizard Wine

March 2001

Book Review
Lizard wine is a metaphor for the unpleasant, self-defeating things we sometimes do because we think they offer a way out of life's trap. This intense, violent novel is about three female college students who meet up with three male drifters and their unfolding stories during a long, cold night in Oregon. What's remarkable is that although each character is nailed by circumstance with the bare implications of being either a man or a woman, the predator-prey roles are unpredictable, and for each person, their unique character is the ultimate determinant of their destiny. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly
Elizabeth Engstrom (Lizzie Borden, etc.) has selected 25 stories most previously published from her 20-year writing career and gathered them up in Suspicions, a spooky collection of tales inspired by the author's questions and theories about death, sex, government, technology, family and the unknown. The characters, places and even genres vary widely: while "Fates Entwined" leans toward erotica, for example, "Rivering" is a fantastical tale of a woman who fishes for souls, and "Romana" reveals a basic love triangle with a paranormal twist. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist
Engstrom claims she is suspicious by nature, and she has something to say about seemingly everything: sex, death, the unknown, friends, family--everything. She presents...

DarkEcho
"A darkly seductive page-turner by a writer who knows how to put the erotic thrill into a thriller."

Book Description
A dark erotic thriller. It all starts with two blonde sisters, one black husband and one murdered Navajo. Reality becomes increasingly uncertain as a husband works to help his accused wife. Evidence isn't what it seems to be, neither woman is who she seems to be, and all three hold close their dark secrets. His long-repressed temptations resurface as he slides deeper and deeper into the sisters' sleazy world of black leather, racial preferences, razor-sharp implements and mistaken identities. Is he married to a murderer, or just sleeping with one? One thing is for sure -- both women are trouble, and he can't stay away.

Book Review
Every year, in late summer, writers of fiction, nonfiction, and screenplays gather on the island of Maui, along with editors and agents, for the Maui Writers Conference. Word by Word presents the written version of 36 Maui Conference talks, by such disparate authors as Ridley Pearson, Nicholas Sparks, Mitch Albom, Jackie Collins, and "autobiographer" Eric Marcus (Breaking the Surface). Some of these lectures are considered and well-formed; others have an off-the-cuff feel. The mishmash is somewhat jarring, but there are plenty of choice cuts in the mix. Between the same two covers you can read Tony Hillerman comparing writers to bag ladies--"going around picking up stuff, you never know, you don't need it today but maybe tomorrow"--and Richard Paul Evans (The Christmas Box) likening self-publishing to competing in the...
