More About the Author

C.SeanMcGee is a prolific multidimensional story teller and philosopher writing strange literary fiction novels in a tiny town in the Brazilian countryside called Araraquara, a place where the air constantly stings with the smell of burned oranges, where the sun offers little respite, painting the trail of clouds with its picturesque red and orange hue, and where Sartre himself chose to diverge his famed Brazilian discourse away from beaches and the choking populous, in favor of cobbled roads and the ubiquitous Baroque acrhitecture and devilish sculptures.

C.SeanMcGee writes what he coined Strange Literary Fiction, a blend of articulate literation with concise philosophy and some difficult and oddball themes. He writes from a purely philosophical lens with a sharp wit and a twisted perspective of humanity. As an author, his writing is schizophrenic, not holding to any repeated theme, ranging from Dystopian FIction (traditional - not this new age pop culture rubbish), Dystopian Fairy Tale, Political Satire, Philosophical/Theological Satire, Idelaistic Satire, Black Comedy, Literary Fiction and Horror.

Neath each story is the same vibrating string.

C.SeanMcGee is an Alien

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Where to start reviewing this tale? The story starts off by giving us a view of the world through the eyes of the little boy Alex. I find this part endearing, being a parent myself (albeit somewhat disturbing). However, as the story progresses and Alex winds up in the dungeon, the events grow increasingly darker. This Gruff persona puts the reader constantly off-balance: is he nice, is he bad, is he a victim? The truth seems to twist and turn on every page, which makes this a bona fide page-turner. Highly recommended (for people who are not easily shocked).
