10 A Boot Stomping 20 A Human Face 30 Goto 10
Author: Jess Gulbranson
To Purchase: Amazon.com
There is no easy way to tackle some of the deepest issues around, like alienation, death, mental illness, and superstition. Sometime you just have to wade in and write a novel in three days that explores those issues. With gunfire, and explosions.
10 A Boot Stomping 20 A Human Face 30 Goto 10 does just that, and tells the tale of a young, antisocial record store clerk who discovers he possesses a strange power to contact rock stars from beyond the grave. From there it is a taut thriller wrapped in conspiracies, autism, philosophical debate, eschatological horror... and did I mention stuff blowing up?
"...intelligent, thought-provoking, goes down easily." -Jordan Krall
"...a thought-provoking tale that runs along metaphysics, balances strong comedic relief, right when it's appropriate." -Eric Mays
"...clever and funny and smart and one of my favorite new releases." -Christy Leigh Stewart
"Stop thumbing through Pynchon... and get on this!!!" -KI Hope
