Horatio Slice, Guitar Slayer of the Universe by Oleander Plume (#gay #erotica #scifi)

Okay, stop whatever you are doing and pop over to Amazon (or wherever you buy you books) and grab a copy of Horatio Slice, Guitar Slayer of the Universe. Actually, you might as well grab a few copies, because this is a book you are going to want to lend . . . but sharing your own sticky, dog-eared copy might be a tad embarrassing.

I have no idea how she did it, but Oleander Plume has somehow managed to capture an orgasm on paper. Seriously, this is the most gloriously debauched, ridiculously entertaining, and brilliantly erotic book I have ever read - and I read a lot! It has cute boys, sexy rock stars, hot vampire pirates, stunningly adorable aliens, and so much hot, messy, explosive sex. Horatio Slice is unabashedly pornographic, but it is also full of adventure, ribald humor, and even some genuine moments of adrenaline-fueled terror.

Seriously, this is about as good as it gets, as close to perfect as a book full of boys can be. :)

Gunner is one of the cutest, happiest protagonists in erotic fiction, a young man who gets whisked off on an adventure with his rock star idol, finding himself and his heart along the way. He is innocent, without being naive, and just . . . well, happy. Horatio (inter-dimensional rock star) and Snake (intergalactic space pirate) are two of the dreamiest hunks you are likely to meet, on or off the page, friends, lovers, brothers-in-arms, and mentors to young Gunner. The three of have more sex than should be humanly possible, in more positions and combinations that is humanly possible, but there is an underlying theme of love, respect, and camaraderie beneath it all. For me, though, it is Sugar who steals the book, an impossibly beautiful genderqueer alien who, along with seven identical Humerians, keeps the boys in line, the ship running, and the (oh so yummy) juices flowing. I have never fallen so completely in love with a fictional character, and never so desperately desired to knock the heroes down and insert myself into a scene.

Normally, I tend to sit down and binge on a read, devouring pages over a night or two, but Horatio Slice is one I have lingered over, allowing myself the taste of a chapter (or two) every night, and prolonging the ecstasy. I have been a tad silly and over-the-top in talking about it, but I mean every word. Oleander Plume has serious talent, and an imagination to match. I am not saying the fate of the universe depends on you reading this . . . but do you really want to risk it?

Oleander Plume lives in Chicago, Illinois, with her husband, two daughters and a pair of obnoxious cats. While she writes in many genres, her favorite is m/m. Or m/m/m. Or m/m/m/m, or … who’s counting, anyway?


  1. I will be beaming about this review for the rest of my life. Thank you so much, I am thrilled you liked my kooky little story, Sally! xoxox

    1. It was glorious . . . a delight! I dragged out reading it because I didn't want it to end. :)
