Overview

A funny, sexy sci-fi thriller with an apocalyptic finish

Undercover agent Seven Rives sees himself as a modern-day 007. He's assigned to investigate an old college mate, Rufus Thornberry, (aka. "Mandrake"),now a billionaire rockstar, whose shadowy "Institute for Multidisciplinary Psionics" proclaims the immanent end of civilization as we know it, by some radical new science, or magic, or both.
Soon Seven finds himself way over his head in a surreal world of hipsters, hackers, artists, dancers, suburban witches, rogue physicists,funky Tibetan Lamas, and Meso-American shamans.
Are they harmless dreamers or dangerous lunatics? Can Seven infiltrate the Institute-- or will they infiltrate him?
Either way, the world will never be the same.

I don't mention Adams and Gaiman lightly. "Pyrates of the Kozmos" is smart, funny, and beautifully written. I love a book that is unpredictable - spare me the formulaic - and I want story telling that grabs and keeps my attention. "Pyrates" does exactly that, with twists and turns and surprising revelations all over the place! My only quibble is that it could have used one more round of proof-reading - there are a few typos. But the dialogue is great, the imagery often incandescent, and the ending is to die for!

This is a great first novel that barrels along like a rainbow snow ball, gathering in mystical traditions with every bounce until it vaults over the edge in a giant evolutionary leap! Hooray Mr. Cutter-Diamond for creating some great characters and laugh-out-loud dialogue and internal monologue. I couldn't put it down.
