    This phantasmagorical adventure begins with a man named Jeffrey


    This phantasmagorical adventure begins with a man named Jeffrey Allbright travelling to France, hoping to reconnect with his brother, a World War I soldier missing action. He soon discovers that France is not the final destination. With the help of a mystical African guide named Mahanjero, Allbright treks through Morocco and into a netherworld of intrigue and danger, dark carnivals and fun-house mirrors, and a city of oval jade structures inhabited by angels. It's a world that apparently intersects the infamous Interzone of William S. Burroughs, because Burroughs actually shows up to lend Jeffrey a hand (and a gun). Anyone who has listened to recordings of William S. Burroughs, reading or talking, can readily hear his voice when he delivers the two-word admonition to Jeffrey Allbright, "ride last," to keep from being shot in the back.
    I enjoyed this book very much. Forrest Aguirre is well versed in esoteric knowledge. There are references to magic circles, necromancy, Greek mythology (in one scene, Burroughs descends into the river Lethe of Hades wearing, of all things, a deep-sea diving suit), and even an indirect reference to the Egyptian practice of removing a body's vital organs in prior to mummification.

    It's a wild ride. Don't stop reading until you break through to the other side.
