    0 out of 5

    Hieronymus Jones was a strange boy, a hair past fifteen, tall and pale with jet black hair, dark brown eyes and a very peculiar kind of mind. If he was not the smartest thing on the planet, he was a very close second. He had secrets, dark and terrible, wonderful and pure. Secrets of hidden worlds with lost people, that were not entirely human. Most unusually, he held secrets… of magic.When Hieronymus Jones saw Gertrude Green for the first time, he sat up a little straighter in his seat. She was an odd girl with a smattering of freckles across her pale skin, impossibly red hair and perfect green eyes. She too had secrets. Together they would discover a connection to each other, far deeper than either could have imagined. Mysterious pendants, evil twisted mounds of monstrous flesh and school bullies are one thing, but when a small unimpressed squid makes a nest in Hieronymus’s cup of tea, something clearly needs to be done. Honestly, this is TEA we are talking about, don’t these creatures have any manners?The first book in a fantasy romance series, awash with bleeding edge technology, magic, humor and hideous tentacle laden, Lovecraftian nightmares, that are coming to kill the world… woot.

  • The Complete X-Ray Rider: Mileposts on the Road to Childhood’s End by Wayne Kyle Spitzer

    0 out of 5

    Jonesing for a drive-in theater and a hotrod El Camino?

    It’s the dawn of the 1970s and everything is changing. The war in Vietnam is winding down. So is the Apollo Space Program. The tiny northwestern city of Spokane is about to host a World’s Fair. But the Watergate Hearings and the re-entry of Skylab and the eruption of Mount Saint Helens are coming…as are killer bees and Ronald Reagan.

    Enter ‘The Kid,’ a panic-prone, hyper-imaginative boy whose life changes drastically when his father brings home an astronaut-white El Camino. As the car’s deep-seated rumbling becomes a catalyst for the Kid’s curiosity, his ailing, over-protective mother finds herself fending off questions she doesn’t want to answer. But her attempt to redirect him on his birthday only arms him with the tool he needs to penetrate deeper—a pair of novelty X-Ray Specs—and as the Camino muscles them through a decade of economic and cultural turmoil, the Kid comes to believe he can see through metal, clothing, skin—to the center of the universe itself, where he imagines something monstrous growing, spreading, reaching across time and space to threaten his very world.

    Using the iconography of 20th century trash Americana—drive-in monster movies, cancelled TV shows, vintage comic books—Spitzer has written an unconventional memoir which recalls J.M. Coetzee’s Boyhood and Youth. More than a literal character, ‘The Kid’ is both the child and the adult. By eschewing the technique of traditional autobiography, Spitzer creates a spherical narrative in which the past lives on in an eternal present while retrospection penetrates the edges. X-Ray Rider is not so much a memoir as it is a retro prequel to a postmodern life—a cinematized “reboot” of what Stephen King calls the “fogged out landscape” of youth.

    After being homeless for three years, nineteen-year-old Rafael Ortiz takes up his sister’s offer to live with her in Atlanta and Akilah, his new hot mouthed classmate with an answer to everything, inserts herself into his life despite his protests.

    He’s suspicious of her first. No one has ever cared about him unless he could give them something in return. Then terrified. He may be seven-hundred miles away from Miami, but it’ll never be far enough from the stepdad that raped him and left him with two ways out as a kid. Running or killing himself. Some days, Rafael still thinks it might be easier to do the latter. For her own sake, he should keep Akilah at a distance.

    Rafael falls for her anyway.

    Then his stepdad shows up in Atlanta and the man still wants to have sex with him and sabotage everything good Rafael has going for him.

    He could run again—but that would mean breaking Akilah’s heart and leaving his future with her behind. Killing himself still means more or less the same thing. But at least then Akilah could move on with her life.

    His last option—one he never considered—is to reveal what his stepdad did to him. Otherwise his stepdad will sabotage his relationship with Akilah and the future Rafael thought was just in his grasp. He might just kill himself anyway if that happens.
