The Popsicle Styx protagonist happens to be an Oklahoma death-row chaplain lost somewhere between Christianity, Catholicism, psychology, white man’s divinity, and Choctaw mysticism.  For the record, a calendar stick is a North American Indian system for keeping track of events and time and is often based on astronomical observations. In the case of whites and ‘mud’ people incarcerated in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, time is written on popsicle sticks. In blood. Your name appears on a stick, your time is up, even off the ‘row.’ “‘You look like hell, Rev,” prison guard Madeline tells Chaplin Richard Harjo. ‘Worn out from carrying signs from God,’ he responds. ‘It’s heavy work.’ ”   Remember Elmore Leonard?  Man wrote some 50 books, uncounted short stories, and numerous screenplays. He’s known for his gritty dialogue, plot twists, and leaving out ‘the part a reader skips anyway.’ John T. Biggs penned ‘Styx’ as if he had scribble orders straight from the man. Combine John T’s mysticism, unsavory characters, and heinous crimes sloshed over with a little sex and you have a late night page turner. Damn fine read that doesn’t waste a single word.
