Max E Keele about this book: This is the story of a young man's coming-of-age journey through a surreal landscape: an American West filled with magic, witches, demons, and ghost of Aleister Crowley. If you've ever thought it might be fun to read a modern fantasy written for adults, this is it.
When offered a ride in an ancient DeSoto driven by a witch, an anchor-less young man named Rupert and his salamander sidekick, Py, embark on a peculiar adventure that takes them from page to page across the desert to an elsewhere Stonehenge, and a place far removed from anywhen. The witch invites them to attend her Anniversary of the Pyramids party, and things turn decidedly weird. A surreal landscape begins to fill with an assortment of bizarre characters and events leading inexorably to an even more bizarre climax. Their journey becomes a search for the meaning of will and self, and an exploration of the very suspicious nature of reality.
Warning: contains adult language and situations, assorted depictions of mood-altering chemistry, and a talking salamander.

Harry Potter on Drugs
What a trip. This is what you get when you mix the occult with sex drugs and rock n roll. Very cool book. Especially like the Marine. Some good funny stuff here. [by Bob Beezle]
