Hollywood Author Josh Hickman will release his latest brand of
satirical, humorous books in mid-November. In the author’s new book, THE KINFOLK: CULT OF SEX AND CHEESE  he explores the maddening world of cults.  Mr. Hickman’s new novel follows his last satirical fantasy book, FIVE SLICES OF FEAR, that has received much critical praise from book reviewers.
Hollywood writer Mr. Hickman releases his new book as the fourth in a fantasy book series he has created and published.  In THE KINFOLK: CULT OF SEX AND CHEESE he chronicles the rise and fall of a “seductive, fanatical cult” led by the enigmatic Dillman “Papa Dilly” Bradford.
meets fiction in the funny fantasy worlds author Josh Hickman creates.
This time his fascination with cults has produced a fresh, yet familiar
cast of charlatans, rubes, losers, and lucky fools, finding laughs in
the cult impulse, religious fervor, and the common pathos of the average
person who will do anything to find solace and belonging. Once more,
author Hickman focuses his gaze on tragic comedy that is human
existence–with all its fears, pitfalls, trials, and triumphs–and again
he speaks hilarious truth to power in his latest entry THE KINFOLK: CULT OF SEX AND CHEESE.
“For as long as I’ve read books I’ve always been a huge fan of
comedic novels,” Hickman asserted. “It was time I decided to start
expressing my own comedic side of creative writing.”




“To get close to
something a million times is the same as being a mile away from it!”
Papa Dilly reminded a hastily-gathered group of upper-level Kinfolk in a
scornful shout, wagging his finger judgmentally. “What you see to believe in is what you need
If you need a doorstop, I’ll be your doorstop. As you need
me as your aquarium, I’ll be your aquarium, for those of you that don’t
have an aquarium… If you need me as your Pat Boone, I’ll be your Pat
Boone. Need a pimp? Say ‘Hello’ to Silky Bradford, welcome to my stable!
I am just a holy mirror. Turn your nose up at me, you’ll see a beggar. Worship
me, you’ll see a higher being. Look me straight in the eye, you’ll see yourself.
If you need me as your merciless vengeful God, I’ll be your
merciless vengeful God!”
The windows rattled in the long, sweaty pauses as the winds outside grew
with the rhetoric.
I’m not God,” Papa Dilly clarified paradoxically.
God is me!





Equally fascinated with horror movies, comedians, and true crime
since early childhood, Josh Hickman spent equal time wading in the heady
waters of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, the Three Stooges comedy shorts, and Helter Skelter
while growing up in various parts of Texas. When he became a writer,
Hickman incorporated his comedic sensibility and lifelong love of the
horror and true crime genres into his satiric writings. His past comic
novels also include the fictional comedy bio THROUGH TICK & TINN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE GREATEST UNKNOWN COMEDY TEAM EVER KNOWN and the illustrated surreal, cautionary high-seas treasure-hunt saga AMBERGRIS. Hickman lives and works in Hollywood.His latest book is the satirical fantasy, The Kinfolk: Cult of Sex and Cheese.
