About Mel C. Thompson

Mel C. Thompson is a writer of fiction and poetry. His stories tend to center around the topics of greed, sex, religion, alcohol, and history. He is a cultural relativist, which means the good guys and the bad guys are often hard to find in any given tale he is telling. Being a staunch enemy of political correctness and traditionalist norms, it is unlikely that a doctrinaire conservative or an orthodox liberal would come away from these stories feeling happy. He is a trained philosopher who majored in that discipline at the California State University at Fullerton, specializing in such diverse topics as World Religions and scientific methodology. Much of his fiction might loosely be called "theological comedy," although he is now venturing into more overtly secular themes. He is also a publisher and has published other authors under his Mel C. Thompson Publishing Company label. As an amateur musician and part-time radio personality, he appeared on KMEL as a nerd rapper and geek-philosopher. He earlier wrote Buddhist hymns and ordinary pop songs. He survived as a security guard and clerical worker for decades before going out on disability due to a host of physical and mental health problems. At this phase of his life, his studies have gravitated toward higher math, computer literacy and electronics.

I really enjoyed Harbor Boulevard. The book begins as our protagonist (and narrator, based up on the author himself) sets out, with a forever-unnamed companion, to walk the entire length of Harbor Boulevard in Orange County, California.

This premise is admittedly odd, but not entirely fantastic. However, as the intrepid duo make their way towards the Pacific coast, they have a series of increasingly bizarre encounters with people, situations, and events which reflect various aspects of our current cultural milieu. I was engrossed and fascinated from start to finish.

The adventures that occur on Harbor Boulevard as the protagonists slowly make their way toward the mysterious Solomon Wedge, despite being crazy and fun, also somehow speak to the conditions inherent in the America where we live right now. Recommended.
