About the Author

Moxie Mezcal lives under an assumed name in San Jose, California.

More About the Author

Moxie Mezcal pens bawdy pulp frivolities masquerading as high art and should under no circumstances be taken seriously.

Moxie Mezcal has been sighted slouching down the back roads of California in a frock coat that smells of equal parts Gaultier and rotgut.

Like some disgraced cosmonaut, Moxie Mezcal sees only jeering faces in the starry night sky.

Moxie Mezcal swears too much, jogs too seldom, and lies compulsively. Some of the more amusing lies get published.

Kept me guessing until the very end.

Like I said, I'm still not sure about exactly what really happened, but I certainly don't regret reading it.

Near the end of the book a character states her opinion of mysteries. "They always try to trick you, deliberately throwing extraneous plot lines just to confuse and misguide you, withholding important information until the last chapter, using vague and misleading descriptions so you don't notice something that should be plain as day." I can only assume that Mezcal was trying to be funny because this was the blueprint for his entire book. Confusing at points, melodramatic, and never enough information to make a good guess at what's going on. The ending is, well, literally unforeseeable.

So that was the critique but, everything else aside, I couldn't put this book down. The writing ticked me off at points and I wanted to slap most of the characters, however the plot was really enthralling. I turned every page because I really wanted to see what was on the next one and isn't that what we look for in a good book?

I just finished reading this book, all told over a period of 2 days much to the detriment of both my job and personal life, but I would not give that time back for anything. It was intriguing, and made me ravenous for more. I can honestly say that while reading this, my whole being was absorbed into the story line a first for any book I have ever read. Moxie Mezcal is an absolute genius of the literary arts and I surmise will be one of the greatest writers of our time. I plan on recommending this book to ever person I know that despite the distractions of everyday life still enjoys great writing.

Not like anything I've read in a long time. Twists and turns, and then more twists and turns. Just plain fun.

This book was free and it was still over-priced. It was simply a waste of time to read it, but I kept thinking he was going to actually complete a thought somewhere and was curious as to when/where. He didn't. Disjointed, hodge-podge plot that doesn't even have an ending. It was probably an attempt to be clever, but it was far from it. If there was a zero rating, I'd give it that.

While I have to give the author kudos for writing this, sadly the only good thing I can say about it is it was different. Unlike anything I have ever read before. There was far too much going on, too many redundancies and twists that in my opinion were thrown in just for the sake of having a twist.
The writing itself was all right. Lots of typos and errors. Maybe I just don't understand "Guerrilla Fiction" as the author describes this sort of work. Guerrilla Fiction doesn't need to justify itself.
Granted the pulp-fiction style was there, but anything else this could have been described as just lurked in the shadows.
Read it for yourself, you may like it. Sadly, I didn't.

Just finished reading Mezcal's Concrete Underground, and hope this is not the last novel we see from this creative talent. I love D's do what thou will attitude, and the suspense still hanging in the aethers at the end of the story. Very subtle clues haunt the sequence of events. Depictive modules are used in an unusual manner. Nothing is as it seems.

Avoiding predictable twists, the story line is pushed to incalculable boundaries.

Guerrilla Fiction as described in the author's manifesto seems a promising nouveau genre which I HOPE to see more of in the near future!

LVX! 93!

This was a hard book to read. You have to concentrate to follow the characters and action and to wrap your mind around what is happening in this fantasy. Often times you wonder whose dream you're following and whether it really is a dream. This was not my favorite read in quite a while and I'm not sure if I'd try another by this author.

After having finishing reading this, about all I can say is that it was way too strange for me. I still can't tell you what happened. Too many twists and turns, and I don't know what was real and what was the main character's imagination.

I'm glad it was free.
