Book Description

Aug. 1 2009
The Da Vinci Code meets Sex and The City in this twisted, page-turning thriller about a virus that cures all diseases, but the only way to pass it to others is through sex. Bill Soileau is the last guy you'd expect to save the world. From the shocking opening chapter of The Sower, Bill is the ultimate bad boy. A deviously handsome player in the world of San Francisco's sexual underground, he doesn't seem to care for anyone except himself. Then while on assignment working overseas in remote Armenia, he's infected with a manmade supervirus that appears to be a cure for all diseases. With the help of a brilliant French doctor, Bill soon discovers he's the sole carrier, and the only way to pass the miracle cure onto others is through sex. When word gets out, Bill finds himself on the most wanted list. He's the ultimate weapon in the culture wars, pitting him against right wing ideologies, religious extremists, and the most famous pop star on the planet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sow This Aug. 19 2009
By S. Beaudoin - Published on
Out of stock? No way. Hey, I want my hardcover copy. But it's okay, 'cause I already read the digital version on Scribd. What you have here, essentially, is an indictment dressed up as a satire. It's the kind of book we need in times like these where people with no conception what the world Socialism means-or even implies-find themselves goaded into using it relentlessly, and incorrectly, in an attempt to subvert an effort to provide health care that almost certainly would benefit them in the long run. It's that level of bizarre, Orwellian comic disconnect The Sower mines. It's a fast read and as much a thriller as a political statement. Plus, its got a great cover, a great last chapter, just the sort of ending certain people deserve. My only complaint is that those certain people got off light, in my opinion. I'm sure Kemble will unleash the really sharp knives with the next book. In the meantime, read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Issues, Light Touch Aug. 18 2009
By Jan Steckel - Published on
This genre-blending novel deals with the issues of plague, genocide, sexuality and the pharmacomedicoindustrial complex and still makes you giggle. I started it in the evening and literally could not stop until I finished it hours later. The characterizations are shallow, as in most satire, but the writer plays with the conventions of the romance and thriller genres in unusual and highly subversive ways. The book is timely, well written (with a light touch) and a real page-turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Careful Where You Spill Your Seed Jan. 7 2010
By James Warner - Published on
The Sower is a page-turner of a queer thriller. Suppose you were infected with the only cure for AIDS, and it became your responsibility to transmit this cure sexually to everyone in the world? Kemble Scott subverts this gay man's fantasy into a humorous and brutally camp narrative that will not go over well with Jerry Falwell.

Action-packed and highly readable. Not even W gets to keep his pants on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrities, PotUS & Popes all lined up for a rogering Aug. 21 2009
By David Gleeson - Published on
Now here's a romp. A nice little plot with more than a slice of parody on Dan Brown. Unlike Brown, and despite the enjoyable level of farce at times, there are some underlying threads here to shake a stick at the hypocrites and make the reader think twice about what's really going on. And despite some recent changes for the better, we really do need to think about what's going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa, boy ---What a Clever Premise! Nov. 16 2010
By Patricia V. Davis (Volonakis) - Published on
Who'd have expected that a deeply provocative and intelligent premise could be conveyed through such raunchy,tongue-in-cheek fun? This is a clever but fast read. You will NOT believe the ending. (No, really. But be forewarned --- you'll either stand up and cheer or be horrifically offended. I doubt there's a reader out there who'd have middle ground response to the last line.) Want something different? Try this one. One of the most downloaded books on Scribd, and the author has even come up with a creative 2.0 version.
