A Chocolate Soldier

by Cyrus Colter
£6.99   paperback  The X-Press (1999)

A Chocolate Soldier by Cyrus Colter Prophet or madman? Cager is a man with a mission. As a young boy at the fun fair he watches a sideshow where a black man dodges baseballs hurled by whites. Hit him and you win a prize. He is so quick that no one can, until a former baseball player sends one smashing into his skull. As he is carried off dying, the black man screams, "I am still here, white folks... I'll always be here making trouble for you."
Haunted by the dead man's last words, Cager holds the segregated Deep South responsible for everything and anything, including his own sexual inadequacies. Now, with a ramshackle army of black soldiers behind him, ge is ready to 'teach white folks a lesson they will never forget', as lesson for which he is willing to pay the ultimate price.
