I will be the first to admit that I have a big soft spot for science fiction, and when it comes to gay scifi, I’ve read some pretty incredible books, so it’s hard to amaze me. Yet The Luxorian Fugitive managed to meet all my high expectations. Mann Ramblings builds an interesting future world, and the community of Santa Claus is extremely appealing. Even in the distant future, the beings you encounter are as human as they are today, with the same flaws and qualities.

Luxorian is a world where the rich can afford anything, including slaves. Clones are the new second class citizens, and while this is supposedly a futuristic world, its inhabitants are not afraid to devolve back to gladiator times. They use their Adonirati to fight, and in between their appearances in the arena, they are nothing more than prostitutes.

War is still brutal and leaves just as many scars, just as Liam proves, and love is still complicated at best. Apparently, we are unable to learn to deal with our emotions and in the future, our feelings, wants, and needs are just as mind boggling as they are today. Yet this is the part I love most about scifi, being thrown in a world you do not recognize, yet immediately relating with those who populate it, with their fears and challenges, with their moral issues and their reactions to everything life throws at them.

The Luxorian Fugitive is definitely a page turner, all character are beautifully written, and it also happens to be one hot read. Hadrian is my new book boyfriend. I can’t wait for the next installment in this series!

MannRamblingspic-225x300About the Author

Like many gay men, when Mann Ramblings grew up, there weren’t any heroes he could relate to. The world held him back while he tried futilely to hide the real person inside. So much has changed since those hollow days. He finally found his voice, the voice that says it’s all right to revel in the so-called inappropriate joys, laughs, and loves that storm inside a man’s head. It took a long time to find that courage and now that it’s here, he plans to use it well.

While spending years more focused on visual arts, he never let go of his innate passion for storytelling—he wanted to write and draw comic books when he grew up. Once he discovered M/M fiction, a whole new world opened with new possibilities. Why couldn’t you have fantastic and dynamic tales with an M/M cast? He started reading the online tales of authors like, Night Tempest, Rob Colton, and Alicia Nordwell, which only fueled within him the need to create. Eventually he found, and with a little coercive nudge from Night Tempest, started sharing his tales with an unexpected level of positive response. That experience and support gave him the courage to cross his fingers and aim for the world of M/M publishing.

Born and raised in Michigan, Mann Ramblings continues to type away, wishing it was practical to use a noisy, old fashioned keyboard that clacks with each strike, if only to annoy his loving partner and spoiled miniature dachshund.
