Brett’s paranormal investigations are at a stand still, so he’s up for it when Uncle Gonzo invites him and his friend Jimbo, and ex-girlfriend Liz on a road trip, destination New Orleans. Things get interesting right from the get go. The trip almost ends before it gets down the road, when they swerve to avoid a figure that appears out of the fog. Turns out it was a ghost. But a ghost is the least of their worries, as a raging demon who hops from body to body and can sap their life force with a touch pursues them. This road trip is anything but normal and they’ll be lucky to reach their destination. This is one crazy road trip. Brett and Liz are working on renewing their relationship, Jimbo is harassed with phone calls from his insecure, jealous girlfriend Frannie, and Uncle Gonzo(not really anyone’s uncle) is always there to stir the pot, sarcastic with a capital S. Where the author really got me was why, if Jimbo’s girlfriend may be the one who sicced the demon on them, was Brett the target? I kept searching for subtle clues, something to point me in another direction. Then I got caught up in the dialogue, the witty repartee, and the pit stops they made along the way. Even if a demon’s after you, you still have to take a bathroom break and eat. But thinking it won’t attack when others are around is a dangerous mistake for Brett and the poor guy barely escapes it clutches. I think Gonzo’s van, Soccer Mom, was the perfect vehicle to carry us down this winding road. The weird gets weirder, the demon gets angrier, and the gang gets more desperate. This is where you fasten your seat belts and hold on to your butts. The path is filled with potholes. I received this book for my honest and unbiased review.

I come to this book already a fan, having read and enjoyed Blue Spirit and Reality Check. So I was anxious to read FOUR TIL LATE, his latest, or perhaps equally appropriate, his earliest, release. FOUR TIL LATE is a re-release of his first novel, part one of a trilogy, and as I understand it, with a bit of editing and rewriting. So I chose to wait for the "new authorized edition." Rewrite or not, the story still permeates with "essence of new author" excitement, with a strong sense of a new voice coming onto its own, of a new writer anxious to introduce his vision to the world. Personally I'm glad the rewrite has not polished away that essence. Approaching the tale now after having read tales of the more mature, more disciplined, author, was a treat for this reader. The job of a speculative fiction author is to take the reader on a journey into the strange and unusual, to go someplace magical and thrilling and maybe a bit dangerous, where anything can happen, What better way to present that idea than to tell the tale of a literal journey--a group of four friends who hop into a van and go on a road trip. Protagonist Brett and his friend Jimbo join their older "Uncle Gonzo" on a road trip from Indianapolis to New Orleans. En route they'll pick up Brett's ex-girlfriend Liz. Some are running away from their past, others are heading forward, though they barely know to what, or why. The story weaves between the road-trip present and drifts into the character's past, bringing out in bits of secrets and traumas that may hold the answer to why a strange ghostly specter has suddenly given chase to the traveling minivan. What is the strange manifestation, and why is it chasing them? It may be Jimbo's batty girlfriend Fran, who won't stop calling his cell phone since being shut out of the group's travel plans, or it might be a darker, more sinister, threat. Garrison has a knack for creating fun, interesting women characters, and this book is no exception, as quirky Liz consistently steals almost every scene she's in. I'm looking forward to logging more miles with the next volumes of this series. Bottom line--a great start to a fun and intense paranormal thriller trilogy.

Brett and Liz broke up, but now Brett’s on a road trip with Gonzo and Jimbo and it seems his friends have decided to meet up with the ex-girlfriend on the way. They’re not picking up Jimbo’s girlfriend though, and they’re not taking Jimbo to see her—both causes of serious concern and not a little danger. Pitch-perfect dialog pulls this story along, and the author deftly keeps the voices perfectly in character, the language perfectly natural, the conversation swift and unforced, and the reader riveted to every word. All the senses come to life in this tale: Smell the food, the drinks, the over-ripe stink when the car-windows need opening; enjoy the zany conversation; see the mist and wonder what’s hiding behind it. This trip feels real just as soon as the rubber hits the road, and even if you don’t recognize all the musical references, you’ll hear the guitar riffs playing in your heads. Something or someone is playing with Brett’s head too. A figure in the fog might be a ghost. A nightmare might almost be real. And a shadow’s stalking him. But “Why me?” he asks. And the reader’s slowly drawn into asking that too. Well-timed backstory, well-drawn characters, and genuine scares all come together in a tale that hides wisdom behind its shroud of fog and fury. Join pagan witch, innocent bystander, and friends just looking for music and a well-chilled beer, and enjoy this Halloween tale. Disclosure: I was lucky enough to be given a free ecopy of this soon-to-be Halloween classic.
