Ray Garton, . . Cemetery Dance, $40 (300pp) ISBN 978-1-58767-044-2

Schlockmeister Garton (Sex and Violence in Hollywood ), with tongue firmly in cheek, serves up an X-rated fable about a glamorous new neighbor, Lorelle Dupree, who generously provides the answers to everyone's erotic dreams in a Chicago suburb. Few readers will be surprised when a courageous preacher figures out that Lorelle is "a daughter of Lilith... a sexual vampire." Adolescent males who can afford the high sticker price will gobble this easy read up like popcorn, while the more mature may smile at its excesses and its sense of the ridiculous. (Oct.)
