Thom Nickels is theauthor of SPORE (StarBooks, $16.95 pb).
This Philadelphia author has set his new novel in Philadelphia's neighborhoods: Germantown, East Falls,Vally Green (Fairmount Park), Roxborough and Center City.

After his wife leaves him on their honeymoon, Dennis, a misunderstood and out of work Philadelphia architect, begins a quest to find out who he is, why he does what he does, and how to understand it all. Thus, he begins his journey, while taking things to the limit in all kinds of strange situations.

Dennis's mission is to offer proof to the world that homosexuality and bisexuality are every bit a part of "The Big Plan" as is heterosexuality. He begins his activist campaign as a "street preacher," but in so doing, he stirs up reactionary forces that want him dead. Dennis's dire warnings shake up the status quo. One warning is that people who do not act on their latent bisexual or gay desires will develop diseases cause by a spore and that religions that condemn same-sex love will not inherit the new kingdom.

Will his predictions prove right? Will he be condemned? And, what about the spores? SPORE will leave you wondering about the world you think you know.
SPORE is truly a thought-provoking novel that will leave you wondering!
