    The meaning of that old expression, "23 skidoo"–i.e., to get out with all due haste–is infused with new contextual life in this author's debut novel. A true hybrid, the book falls within the nexus of conspiracy research (viz., metapolitical non-fiction) yet is presented in the guise of a thought bomb sci-fi thriller. It’s the story of a lovable mug whose reverence for Jimi Hendrix, love, truth, and liberty, drives his quest to uncover secret knowledge; to debug "the big questions." As such, 23 Skiddoo rips into the inner reaches of outer space; points-of-view coming from way back beyond across the stars inform and instruct both the protagonist and the reader: “Kindly Uncle” ETs orient us to past and present; alien hybrid abominations show us, trenchantly, the nature and resilience of the creative force, viz., survival. The jury is out on the planet’s Luciferians; it always has been. And their System drones on. But is there a polar opposite System set up to counter... More > evil, greed, perversion, and injustice? 23 Skiddoo's protagonist thinks so. At least he is determined to find out–as determined as the System is to contain the new contagion known as “integral consciousness.” Here, mention should be made of the factory our protagonist oversees–the one that produces the Dystopiex, an ET-designed disruptor for neutralizing the System’s ever-conditioning, electromagnetic waves. 23 Skiddoo does indeed reach way back beyond across the stars. Halfway through the author uses an adaptation of L.R. Spencer's Alien Interview. Though it departs from the action, the inclusion of the Alien Interview lends an intriguing subtext (assisting the protagonist to answer that age old question, Who am I?). Some humorous interludes involve, e.g., the protagonist's ghost writer–a real ghost (or celestial) who lives up in his attic. There’s also an encounter with the Excrementalists. This cult was created by Ex, one of the book’s sleuths, who specializes in designing worldviews, and is based on the seemingly simple realization that all and everything is “shit.” Then there is the people-eating “monster” plagued by flatulence. This book asks a lot from its readers. But for those red pill mutants willing to undertake the journey, 23 Skiddoo yields up rich rewards. As the book goes deeper down the rabbit hole, there are side-tunnel forays into ayahuasca-land and meanderings into sufic lore. It's an ambitious work that leaves the reader in a strangely ponderous state.< Less
