  • Sloughing Off the Rot on April 21, 2013

    Lance Carbuncle continues to surprise. Continuing to paint with a wide brush topics and vistas that would sicken most people, you need only pay attention to the intricately layered concepts and neologisms he creates to glimpse the depth of passion he brings to the table. What you will find within the fractured leaves of this work will excite, entertain, enervate, enliven and sicken with a generous smattering of comically offensive observations that cut across all stratospheres. It thus becomes clear that Carbuncle is an equal opportunity offender. Much like his groundbreaking work, Smashed, Squashed, Splattered, Chewed, Chunked and Spewed, you will at once be stunned, then flummoxed, and finally mesmerized as the twisted logic he spins coils you into a snare so tight to be an epiphany in sweet pain. Yet churning beneath this smorgasbord of seemingly incongruous and tragic-comic elements is a palpable current of profundity: the search for self, identity, and what it means to be human. Not to mention a generous smattering of biblical allusion. Among the most noteworthy elements of the tale are its non-linear plot, and the influence on events of choices made by men, women and beasts. And as the word odyssey has come to refer to an epic voyage, it is a most fitting summation of this novel. What we have is a modern day Homer's Odyssey, with lead character John the allegorical Odysseus. I don't know about you, but I find comfort in the knowledge that Carbuncle is out there laughing at this oddity called life for us sinners. Audacious, innovative and satirically precise humorists such as he are a rare find indeed. In short, this work is not to be missed.
  • Jack Dawkins on April 24, 2013

    Charlton Daines has with graceful aplomb crafted a masterful and winning tale, craftily adopting the tone, lingua franca and communal sin qua non of olde tyme London. The tale blips along quite naturally, all being of one with its Olive Twist beginnings as it swiftly toggles from Jack Dawkins in his natural "petty thief" state, to the new and improved Jack Dawkins who so smoothly acquaints and inserts himself into polite society. Naturally, it is only a matter of negligible time before Dawkins runs head on into his old cohort, Oliver Twist, who has cleanly moved in to and adopted the habits, manners, and air of upper crust society. A world of seemingly impenetrable suspicions mars their first meeting. Oliver, who expresses to Jack, "Once a thief, always a thief," is understandably concerned about his old acquaintance's ability to shake his old persona. Jack, aka Artful Dodger, receives this pronouncement as a right hook to the head. Here forward, the tale twists and turns and rises and falls on many incidental and ultimately incendiary developments, pushing Jack Dawkins to the outermost limits of his wily character and its permutations as a fierce internal struggle rages, leaving him unquestionably at odds with his scandalous actions as he moves deeper and deeper into a world he had only known antagonistically as the Artful Dodger, only to face it now head on with a susurrating, closely held hope that he may one day be fully accepted into this world, much like Pinocchio wishing ever so dearly to become a "real boy." As rehabilitative efforts have been reported to have no appreciable effect on recidivism, the criminal justice system's efforts to rehabilitate offenders have failed. With hope springing eternal, Jack Dawkins proceeds with trilling trepidation, deeply haunted as he finds painful the truism "old habits die hard." In this well-crafted saga, Daines has whipped up not only a study on criminology, but what may very well have been the continuing tale of the Artful Dodger had Dickens so chosen to pursue it to its logical conclusion. If the story of Oliver Twist has a lingering resonance with you, it is strongly recommended you read this indispensable work of Charlton Daines. Not only does it serve as worthy companion to its engendering tale of old world London, but it is a tale that Dickens himself would no doubt approve without compunction. C.B. Smith, author of Love, Knuckles and Melody Genesis
