Book Description

Raised from birth to be a force for justice, Damian Stockwell has forever trained to combat the evils of the world. Blessed with the physique of a demigod and one of the world’s foremost minds, he travels the globe on a quest to confront evil and punch it in the face. At his disposal is a vast fortune, an endless array of gadgets and loyal friends.

Now, one of those friends has gone missing in a Central American jungle and the only clue is the grotesque image of a demonic tribal mask. Dam and his trusted valet Bertrand rush headlong into danger and go face-to-face with evil incarnate to save their missing friend and attempt to destroy the Horror in Honduras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny. January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Full disclosure requires that I note two things here. First, I received my copy as a gift. Second, the author is an old friend, and I am one of the people in the acknowledgments section.

Ordinarily, based on those two sets of caveats, especially the latter, I would decline to write a review merely out of the perception of bias. I have thus far abstained from reviewing any other works by Wallace precisely for this reason, even though I have deeply enjoyed each one (and recommend that you buy them!).

This is an exception. This is one of the funniest things I have read in a very long time -- I could not make it through the first third of the story without bouts of laughter. It is cleverly done, with a real love of the period, a deft hand for satire and humor, and a fantastic pace, perfectly replicating the movie serial to which the book is a subtle homage.

Looking back, the last time I laughed at a book so much was when I first read Life, the Universe, and Everything -- in a turn Douglas Adams would have appreciated, that was the first book of the Hitchhiker's Trilogy I'd read -- at the age of twelve. Through a marvelous coincidence, that anecdote provides a segue to discuss the style in Horror in Honduras.

The work is written in a style that is inspired by written works like the Hitchhiker's Guide, and movies like The Pink Panther, The Naked Gun, and the great adventure serials of the 1930s and 1940s. It is fast-paced; and full of visual gags, broad rather than boringly cutting irony, and serious adventure in contained settings. It is refreshingly compact, with very little spare verbiage, and is often suggestive of setting and details rather than directly evocative as a result.

About an hour in I had a pretty good visual in my head of Damian Stockwell. If you are familiar with the cartoon The Tick, then you get the body type and way of talking. Take him out of his blue costume and dress him like Indian Jones and you pretty much get my visual.

Damian Stockwell is as American as Apple Pie. He's almost as beloved too. If I had to think of an individual as beloved, it would probably be Betty White. Don't mistake that as saying Stockwell is frail though, his description seems to indicate that he would make Duane "The Rock" Johnson look like a little person.

Damian could do it all alone, but what fun would that be? Damian employs the services of a loyal friend, a Frenchman named Bertrand. His fighting skills are second only to Damian, though his patience is unrivaled. At least halfway through the book, you'll ask yourself how Bertrand can take Damian's frequent barbs. It's clear they are very good friends.

This book is a wild romp around the globe and is all kinds of exciting. Lots of action. Lots of adventure. Lots of good fun. I can highly-recommend Horror in Honduras to fans of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror in Honduras December 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a great book. Hands down...Personally I want more of this character. I can not get tried of this guy.

I am in love with Damian Stockwell. He is larger than life, strong, tall, dark and handsome type.
He is a James Bond meets Indiana Jones. Men want to be him and women want to be with him. He has and is what my teenage daughter refers to "you got swag".

The story is well written. Keeps ya wanting more each chapter that you read.

You really need to get this book .... you WILL not be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the tradition of the radio cliffhanger July 14, 2013
By pbbelly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In some ways this story is right out of the thirties-like a radio serial. Unique characters, interesting gadgetry and tons of action. I loved it enough to grab his other Damian Stockwell book. I love his brand of humor and the Clousseau/Kato relationship Stockwell has with Bertrand.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun ride May 29, 2013
By MikeB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Benjamin Wallace is a newer writer with a lot of skill and a sense of humor that makes you want to have him over as a dinner. The satire, "in jokes", and puns will keep you chuckling with every page.

Tremendous fun that I recommend for anyone who needs an escape from reality for a brief while. I had a smile on my face the whole time and quite a few giggles that I couldn't suppress.

1.0 out of 5 stars Might make a good comic book
Very shallow. I didn't find much to like about this book. Might be OK for a teen age reader, but not for a mature adult seeking a good, well-thought-out adventure story.

Felt this was a waste of my reading time. More like sci-fi and most of it ridiculous. Also difficult to follow.

More About the Author

benjaminwallacebooks.com
dumbwhitehusband.com (check this out for more dumb white husband fun)

I was born in Canada; I grew up in Texas. In between I've had a thousand fascinations.

Little things. Trivial things. Almost anything can catch my imagination and spur on a thought-a random article on Wikipedia can cost me hours of a day as I link from page to page.

Mix this active imagination with poor time management skills and you get me. I have more ideas for stories than I have time to tell.

But, I'm trying; I write in the wee hours, the downtime hours, and the many hours when I should be sleeping. One day I hope to write in the daylight hours. Maybe then I'll be able to stay a step ahead of my imagination.

Until then I'll do my best to write books worth reading with jokes worth laughing at as fast as I can. The serious stuff is being taken care of by a world full of great writers. I don't want to shock you or change your mind. I don't even care if it makes you think. I just want you to squirt that drink out your nose.

Hope it's not carbonated.

That tends to sting.
