Smashwords book reviews by Lazlo Ferran

  • The Chronicles of Baltrath - The Dark Wizards on Nov. 22, 2010
    (no rating)
    With the following sentence from the creation myth of the God Kith, 'It was ages ago, that the first of the great warriors dared to crawl forth from the mire of fear, and spat defiantly into the face of death', we are launched headfirst into the violently beautiful world of Baltrath. This is not Gary Kuyper's first novel but it is like an egg that emerges fully-formed and with the promise of many secret things within. First in a series(?) Baltrath creates for us a world which has faint echoes of both Tolkien and Norman (Gor) although the acute and unique sense of pace and ironic humour are entirely its own and grip one from the start. Groad, son of a famous warrior is looking for his own entré into the world of Warrior Immortality in the empire of Kith and soon meets up with Turpane, a waif-ette with a keen sense of her own destiny and a challenging, feisty wit. Together they launch a mission to wrestle a power-weapon from the keep of the Dark Wizard, Maggoth. The friendship is loaded with a totally believable friendship/sexual frisson, glazed with wry humour: I soon found myself warmed wholeheartedly to both their characters and the mission that opens this beautiful novel. The author, although having a sharp vision of the world's geography and physical presence, seems most interested in culture and explores in depth the foundation of a culture he has imagined but which has verisimilitude I found hard to resist. A World where women's beauty is judged on the size of their eye-teeth? Oh yes. I am sure there will be many surprises and challenging contrasts with our own culture along the way for the reader of this excellent novel.
  • The Sensing on March 30, 2011

    I have finished The Sensing. Okay I have quite a lot to say (maybe not in words but in import) so are you sitting comfortably? Hold on to your chair or sit down if you are not sitting down. Take a deep breath. I feel I have to be very serious about this because what Gary Kuyper has written here is something very special. I have loved all of his works so far -especially Baltrath, but all of them have a beauty and texture to be enjoyed. However this is entirely in a different league. I think he has finally found his 'voice' While it's not perfect and I do have some slight quibbles, for the most part his writing seems to be 'in the zone' and I was 'in the zone' reading it. Nan is a great character, most sensitively drawn and from her first scene, almost to the end of the tale, it has an easy flow about it - mature, and carries the reader along on that mysterious gentle current of intoxication that only a great writer can manage. I would say in places it reminded me of To Kill a Mockingbird and Catcher in the Rye (although that book is a bit bland compared with this) - the greats of American Literature. I am not exaggerating and I had to take a deep breath before writing this as I want to impart to you the significance of what he has achieved and do my duty to literature (gulp). I have no doubt my references to US fiction are a result of the story being set in the South of America and if he has one final reference point in literature before he literally take off and enters the (solitary) domain of true individualism (in literature) and uniqueness, it is probably American LIterature. I am sure he could do something equally intoxicating if he chose any other genre, however - UK fiction or any other type. All this is just around the corner for him.

  • 101 Politically Incorrect LIMERICKS: Volume Two on Feb. 26, 2013

    This second installment in Gary's Limerick catalogue continues the quality of work in the first. I find some of the poems perhaps hastily constructed - that may be unfair as I don't write limerick's myself and I know how hard poetry construction is. What I mean is that some stray so far from the limerick formula that their impact is impaired. However there are some real classics. I can't include more than one here as very few are printable for the general public. This is one of my favourites: An Irish prisoner called Mike Went on a long hunger strike His cellmate, Dick Used him to pick The lock and escape on a bike My own particular favourite is the cricket one. Bawdiness is where Gary's strength is brought to this art form. Bawdy? I'll say! Gary would be able to come up with a much better simile or metaphor than I but I can say that even I find some of the limericks stretching my imagination and sensibilities. If you really want to plumb literary depths, I think Gary only has a very few to be compared with. Perhaps the late Lord ? Read it if you like bawdy limericks. You will love it. Although not my favourite literary form I give it 8/10.
