Bokassa makes Gay Times Summer Reading List

Sometimes, you get nice surprises. Gay Times was mailed a free copy of my book at the end of April and sent a letter asking if they had any pithy quotes to use on the cover. No news came from them. And then… and then… in an idle and curious moment I googled "Bokassa’s Last Apostle and, after wading through the pages of results from peer review sites and my blog, I found this: http://www.gaytimes.co.uk/Interact/Blogs-articleid-9041-sectionid-767.html Gay Times blog site carrying an article listing MY book as one of their five chosen ‘summer reads’. Not only that, but a very nice review and they have even used the cover to mock up a travel bag!

On a sour note, they have got my name wrong And they can’t spell ‘Emperor’. Oh well, that’s a phone call on Wednesday.

Here’s the text of the review:
Bokassa’s Last Apostle – Paul[sic] Shelton’s debut novel takes its reader to places it never expects to go. From running naked on Hampstead Heath with our protagonist, Everton Jones, we go on to meet a hilarious cast of characters in London’s gay scene to help him find the secret diamond cache of the Emporer[sic] Bokassa. But before he can get his hands on the treasure he has to contend with the an army of mimes, a demon, and a violent gang war. With a plot that reads like Alice in Wonderland on poppers, you’ll be laughing at this little diamond all the way back from the airport.
