About Susan Helene Gottfried

Author, professional book reviewer, freelance editor, and Rock Fiction expert. My love of what happens when books and music collide led me to create the books in the Trevolution, but stay tuned because I can do oh, so much more than that. Like Broken, only different. And every bit as good.

Reviews of ShapeShifter: The Demo Tapes (Year 2) by Susan Helene Gottfried

Stacy Juba reviewed on April 12, 2011

I read these stories after Trevor's Song, the full-length novel which features the same characters. I'm so glad the author has collections of short stories available which feature the same cast, as it's like coming home to old friends. If you haven't read Trevor's Song, then the Demo Tapes anthologies are a great introduction. The characters in the stories are well drawn and complex - a good read.

I first ran into ShapeShifter, the fictional band, three or 4 years ago at a blog called The Meet & Greet. It was a cute blog by a writer and she was telling us little side stories as well as some times outtakes from her writing that didn't make the cut. It was fun, allowing us to glimpse into the characters of the book she was writing as well as watch these kids grow up from friends, to garage band to super duper famous and all that trappings that come along with that. The book she was writing was Trevor's Song - and one day soon I'm told we'll get to read that book! Yay!

In the meantime the author, Susan, has released a couple of small books. They are compilations from the best of the best of the blog postings. This is the second of such books. It was neat to have them all set down in one place and even neater that she gave a little intro to each one telling us how it came about. It's great fun to follow a band (and their screaming, sometimes shirtless, fans) through her writing and writing style.

I'm kind of a Trevor groupie and I can't wait for the finished product, but... even if you just read this book, you'll be happy with it. It's like little mini short stories while making of a rock band. Give it a shot!

I've read both sets of "Demo Tapes," and enjoyed them thoroughly. I used to work in the music business, and Susan's characters are true-to-life, entertaining and well-developed.

Brava to the author for an outstanding collection of short stories.
