Editorial Reviews

U.C.I. Crimonology - Gloria Carter ( Circle of Hope )
Glenn Langohr's Gladiator is fast paced from the first paragraph. The character's are described vividly and I could feel the energy coming off of them! Emotional, mental and a fierce pace to the last word. Shocking!
U.C.L.A. Gang Theory - Jackie Smith
Gladiator, is the third book of A California Pelican Bay Prison Story and the pace is relentless! This time it starts with B.J sitting in a cell agonizing over a letter to his wife, wondering if she is okay. Then the action is non stop into hardcore gang wars between the hispanics with a gun tower out to dispense unrighteous justice with bullets that kill. Great ending!
Author - Zack Fortier
Dude definitely writes like he has been in the environment. Impressive detail and descriptions of the attention to detail required for survival on the "Inside".... G man keep at it. Brought back memories of the streets, the way it felt and sounded. Definitely would recommend this short story to anyone curious about the way if feels to really be there.
O.C. Weekly - Don South
Gladiator is an epic short story told through the lens of a prisoner who obviously knows some of California's darkest secrets. The author exposes a prison gun tower guard who gets off on shooting inmates and setting up riots to do so! A look at how all of the inmates try to get along between races. How they have to fight over space when diplomacy fails. A lethal page turner!

Meet the Author

Author Bio- I'm an obsessive compulsive addict, in recovery, saved by God’s Grace, who researched the U.S War on Drugs so deeply, I met and did business with Mexican Cartels, outlaw bikers and street gangs until the criminal justice system interrupted me. From prison, for 10 years I wrote every morning at 4 AM, before the politics and survival in a variety of California level 4 prisons took over. Upon my release from prison I married my dream girl ballerina Sanette, who plays Annette in the sequel to Roll Call, Upon Release. My vision is to help other prisoners write and publish their art and stories and God is blessing me in this direction daily with my Lock Up Diaries and other works. I use prisoner art for my book covers...

Here is the review for my first work, Roll Call

Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media



A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction—sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic—of America’s war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr.

Locked up for a decade on drugs charges and immersed in both philosophical tomes and modern pulp thrillers, Langohr penned Roll Call, a light fictionalization of his troubled life. “I went from obsessively pacing my cell and wondering and worrying about how I was actually going to get my attorney to defend me, and how many years this sentence would bring,” writes Langohr in an afterword, “to realizing that if I find a way to write what’s in my head, I can find a way out of this hole I had put myself in!” The book’s hero is Benny “B.J.” Johnson, a kid who grows up in a troubled home. His parents are essentially good, but they fight often. Eventually, his mother escapes, departing in a “small car with over a hundred thousand miles on it and some clothes.” From there, B.J.’s descent is all but inevitable—he hangs out with the wrong crowd and starts dealing. But the author is not content to tell the story from only the protagonist’s perspective. Instead, he toggles the angle like a master director, taking in the stories of American lawmen, Mexican dealers, outlaw bikers, prison guards, pawn-shop dealers and a dude named El Diablo who says things like, “I have a master plan that I am willing to share with you.”
