Meet the Author

Jennifer Stevenson bought a bed last summer, but it wasn’t possessed. She loves dark chocolate, Chicago, and crows, and she would never buy cigarettes for pigeons. After years of trying to be a fragile artiste, she has released her inner silliness. She lives in the Chicago area with her husband of thirty years and two cats. Her first novel, Trash Sex Magic, was longlisted for the Nebula Award in 2005 and 2006 and shortlisted for the Locus Awards Best First Novel in 2005.

The Bearskin Rug is the third book in the Jewel Heiss series by American author, Jennifer Stevenson. Jewel Heiss is an agent for Chicago’s Department of Consumer Services. With her partner, Clay and her sex demon, Randy, she is sent to check out reports of pockets of magical activity. The first seems to be a false alarm, but the second, in a building housing a bakery and a porn magazine and film studio, rings all Randy’s bells. While touring the building, Clay finds a shrine to a sort of porn fairy, while Randy gets trapped in a bearskin rug used in filming. By now readers will be getting a bit fed up with Jewel’s double standards, her unending self-analysis and the slow pace of events. The three books could easily have been condensed into one to reduce the boredom. This instalment sees plenty of self-analysis by Clay and Randy as well. Occasionally funny, there is lots of sex in this final book, including a foursome in “demonspace”. It is essential to read the first two books if the reader wants to have any idea at all of what is going on. Readers who have stuck it out this far will probably not be sorry to reach the end. Tedious.

Chicago Department of Consumer Service detective Jewel Heiss and her partner former con artist Clay Dawes are going undercover. Joining them is the Randy the sex demon she freed from THE BRASS BED. Her assignment is to look into first hand erotic weirdness at a film studio. --- Jewel assumes that a studio making porn would have hinky kinky erotica, but it is Randy who becomes an actor and Clay who becomes an avatar to a sex goddess who get the roles. Concerned over how easily her two male companions have been sexually entranced, Jewel goes deep undercover to end the siren enchantment of sexual harassment that leaves pathetic men like Clay and Randy thinking with their lower heads and women stars of the grope. --- The third Jewel lighthearted urban fantasy continues the adventures of the heroine in a somewhat magical Chicago although almost everyone is in denial that magic exists. The story line is fast-paced as the trio assaults the studio with differing results. The triangle seems to have been resolved, but the audience should read the previous two tales (see THE VELVET CHAIR) to better understand how Jewel ended up with two males in her life. --- Harriet Klausner
