More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Pull up a chair and prepare to consume a heaping stack of freshly made, out-of-this-world speculative fiction! The Amityville House of Pancakes is a quartet of masterfully crafted novellas that includes works by J. D. Welles, Jack Mangan, Jetse de Vries, and Adrienne Jones.Welles's "The Girl in B33" features Nicholas Brown, a hard-nosed metaphysical investigator who is called upon to solve a bizarre death in a much-historied theater, where a man sitting in seat B33 spontaneously exploded and onlookers saw a ghostly girl in his seat. Brown must solve the ethereal mystery before more innocent theatergoers die. Mangan's "Dirk Moonfire and the Nefarious Space Women" is a tongue-in-cheek homage to pulp science fiction that follows a crew of manly men as they travel to the far ends of the universe trying to rescue a scientist from the clutches of alien invaders. En route, they crash land on a giant space slug inhabited by a colony of beautiful space babes. All goes well until Moonfire gets the dreaded Special Treatment. "Cultural Clashes in Cadiz" by de Vries is a time-travel adventure set in 13th-century Spain that pits a rogue time-traveler against the two trackers closing in on him. The story's conclusion -- where the traveler's reasons for illegally going back in time are finally revealed -- is as mind-blowing as it is brilliant. "Gypsies Stole My Tequila" by Jones chronicles the life of a washed-out punk rocker who, upon his 40th birthday, must make good on a drug-induced blood oath he and his bandmates sealed almost 20 years earlier. Powered by the warped sense of humor of editor Peter S. Allen -- who founded AHOP as a web magazine in 2001 to showcase quality humorous speculative fiction -- this is a small-press gem that will surprise and enthrall all who read it. Highly recommended. Paul Goat Allen

    Concerning Adrienne Jones's GYPSIES STOLE MY TEQUILA

    After reading GYPSIES STOLE MY TEQUILA, I am convinced that Adrienne Jones can do no wrong. She is one of the only living writers of English who knows how to properly fashion a sentence. The writing tickles you, teases you. It glints and sparkles. It caroms off your brain. Ageing is a rather ticklish subject -- and there is nothing more pitiful than an ageing punk-rocker -- but at the end of her book, you are literally trembling with laughter. Not laughter as a response to humor, really, nor the laughter of embarrassment, but rather the laughter of giddiness and glee. Even as tendrils of pig intestines spill across the page a la REANIMATOR, you're convulsing from laughter. I attribute such a physiological response to the book's elegant verbal play, its charm and grace. I wrote down several of her sentences on the back of an envelope so that I could luxuriate in them later:

    "The lines that separated the days of the month had a mossy growth protruding from them, black and rotted looking, like dead vegetation was pushing its way through the calendar from the back."

    "The cliff was beauty, rage and death, swirling in a cacophonous shifting of imagery and emotion."

    "A wash of pink and red chunks completely blotted out Max's face momentarily before the innards slid down his body onto the floor."

    "He shook it off, but could feel the bloody wetness, clinging to his skin, painting it red."

    "The cliff was silent save for the wind and the waves."

    Even as the main character, Joe Blood, inches toward his fortieth birthday and possibly his self-imposed destruction, you'll be sliding slipperily down Jones's language slide, your nerves all aflutter.

    Joseph Suglia
