New Review: Taboogasm, by Gregor Xane (Sun, 28 Aug 2016)
TaboogasmTaboogasm by Gregor Xane My rating: 5 of 5 stars (FULL DISCLOSURE: Gregor Xane has been a fellow contributor on several anthologies, and has become a friend over the last couple of years. That being said, our friendship was born primarily out of his stellar writing abilities, as his debut short story "It Came From Hell and Smashed the Angels" and novella Six Dead Spots absolutely blew me away and led me to seek him out. This review is my honest opinion, as free from personal bias as possible.) I've just finished reading TABOOGASM, Gregor Xane's first full-length work since the mind-melting spectacle that was The Hanover Block. I finished reading it yesterday, slept on it, yet still find myself at a loss for words. TABOOGASM may in fact be a mystical porthole, a voyeuristic excursion into Gregor Xane's dreams. Much like Xane's The Hanover Block, this book defies description. TABOOGASM is its own thing, a whole new flavor of inXanity™. If I wanted to orient a mainstream reader, I'd say it lies somewhere in the general vicinity of Douglas Adams and David Wong (John Dies at the End), and it does - but in the same sort of way that Pluto lies in the general vicinity of earth. The book is unrelentingly imaginative and by turns funny, bizarre, vulgar, and surprisingly action-packed. There's a light feel to the whole proceedings, playfulness laced with a sense of unease generated by a story line that veers so far off the path well-traveled you'll find yourself holding on for dear life as things pick up speed. One of the hallmarks of a good book is a feeling of disappointment when the final sentence arrives, a longing for the story to continue. I'm eager to follow this adventure along to the next uncharted destination, and I hope this book connects with an audience so that can happen someday. The ending leaves things perfectly poised for a sequel. If you want to be amused and disturbed in the best possible ways, give this a spin. You'd have to be incapable of joy to not have a good time with this book. 4.5 STARS - It left me wanting more! View all my reviews posted by Evans Light on March, 27
