RARA-AVIS: Welcome to Vicki Hendicks, guest of honour

From: William Denton ( buff@pobox.com)

Vicki Hendricks is on the list and getting the mail! All is working well. It's very generous of her to come and join us for the month and I'm sure we'll all make her welcome.

You can check her web site to find out about her books and read a short bio:


I just got IGUANA LOVE (1999) off the shelf again for a read. Here are the blurbs--I don't know if she likes them, dislikes them, or is tired of them, but they're humidly evocative:

  "Hendricks is Jim Thompson in a G-string."

  "A red-hot tale of Miami vice with more lurid twists than a Florida

  "No one writes better abour white trash gone bad. If James M. Cain were
  a woman and alive today, the postman would always ring once on the doors
  of the sultry Miami condos inhabited by Hendricks's characters in heat."
  (That's from Maxim Jakubowski.)

Vicki Hendricks is ready to chat and looking forward to hearing from people, so by all means say hello or ask a question. If you're a lurker but like her writing, now's a fine time to speak up, too.
