5.0 von 5 Sternen Alternate American history complete with bugs and Guests 23. April 2005
Von Schtinky - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Once again I find myself highly recommending a book that is a limited edition, but if you liked George R.R. Martin's 'Sandkings' for the bugs, you will love Thomas's 'Boneland'. For me, I do not regret one penny spent on this superb tale of morbid history, alien invasion, bug-like mechanisms, and pale humanity. I could not put it down.

Boneland is short, only 167 pages, but covers and amazing amount of ground as it follows the life of John Board, born in Chicago, which is soon to be renamed Coccyx.

In 1893, young Johnny's mother hangs herself, her last words being that there were bugs inside her head. Strange rains of insects had been occurring lately, but though Johnny was too young to make the connection, the history of America was forever changed from how we know it. The Guests are here.

In exchange for being able to observe our violent world, the Guests have provided us with organic, bug-like inventions such as cameras and radios and TVs. Jeffrey Thomas's vision of such inventions and such a world is so breathtaking and surreal that my only wish is that this was a longer novel.

You will follow John Board through his life as a camera man, skillfully manipulating the organic cameras from police work to prison to Hollywood, now known as Boneland. Board does not trust the Guests, but it is not wise to question them or their Mediums either.

Thomas made it easy to envision his world, and skillfully conducted the passage of time throughout John's life, a tale of a man still all too human in a skewered world. I absolutely loved Thomas's renaming of famous places and things into organic titles, like Mandible's Chinese Theater and Scapula Blvd. Don't miss out on Boneland, definitely a 10 Star book. Enjoy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Grade A speculative fiction 11. Oktober 2013
Von Ray Wallace - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In BONELAND, Jeffrey Thomas has created an America made different from the one we know by a strain of bizarre and ubiquitous alien technology. These aliens, known as the Guests, seem to get their kicks from watching human violence in all its various forms. Now, while the Guests themselves cannot make the journey from their world to ours, their machines -- strange, living, bug-like contraptions -- certainly can. And their cameras are more than capable of transmitting the scenes of murder and mayhem they crave back to them.

John Board, the story's central character, is a child when the Guests first impose their influence on the world. As he ages, we get to see the way this influence molds his life and, ultimately, shapes him as a man. I'm going to avoid getting into the plot here because seeing how it all unfolds is half the fun. And, yes, this book is fun despite the the often grim material it covers. What makes it such a joy to read is Jeffrey Thomas's skill at effortlessly conveying very odd, often surreal imagery along with the sheer inventiveness of his fertile imagination. Anyone familiar with his Punktown or Hades books or any of his short story collections knows what a talented genre writer he is. And BONELAND finds Mr. Thomas at the top of his game.

If you're looking for a unique and compelling piece of speculative fiction, you need look no further than BONELAND. Highly recommended!
