Higher Intelligence FINAL COVER-synapse sketchFiction/Science Fiction

Higher Intelligence, Peter Atwater

On the surface, Higher Intelligence is a science fiction novel about human conflict with a life form on another planet. At a deeper level, it is a metaphor for our treatment of animals who many humans consider to be of inferior intelligence, and the natural environment in general. At its heart, the novel reveals critical life themes about animals, the environment, and what happens when humankind’s penchant for controlling both reaches its inevitable tragic conclusion.

Cubicle Dreams, Drew Pilansky

If you have ever felt pulled apart between your loyalties at work and your personal life, you have lived Cubicle Dreams.

Book Review

5 star rating

This book is a wonder! I am surprised it is not mentioned more because it is absolutely brilliant. The paradox of our reality being an illusion so dependent on individual perceptions and experiences is brought out beautifully. It is also a reaffirmation that it is okay to not fit in, to not care about public opinion, to be essentially free. Five stars and more !!

Literary Book Review

5 star rating

In this YA novel by Sy Kadella, young readers will hop in the car and ride along on a bizarre and funny cross-country road trip with a highly dysfunctional family and see all the people encountered through the eyes of an autistic teenager. On this trip the main character, an emotionally detached child prodigy who is on the spectrum, encounters a quirky cast of characters including a mobster uncle, a channeling aunt, a Native American healer, and a depressed punker who has read The Bell Jar five times. But none of the characters found on the road are as odd as the protagonist’s own immediate family. There are many lessons along the way. The most important being that wherever there is motion, there is bound to be friction, and within this lies the secret to wisdom and the strength to break free. A unique and deftly crafted novel, “Friction in Motion” is unreservedly recommended for high school and community library YA Fiction collections.

vaughan-n-record store end of time cover REVISEDFiction/Fantasy Sci-Fi

The Record Store at the End of Time, Neal Vaughan

Power pop saves the solar system from rogue cops and over-consumption in this fantasy sci-fi.  It is an asteroid of sanity in a universe of reality TV, neo-fascist economics and Justin Bieber fans.  This off-center read embraces a relevant social undercurrent – especially relevant if the dumbing down of contemporary music and political culture makes you want to throw things at the TV.
