More About the Author

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

This is a strange story. It starts when a younger brother can't sleep and has the older brother take him to the secret sidewalk behind some bushes near the marina where they live with their mother. As I'm sure it is suppose to be, it is difficult to tell whether this is a real world in a fantasy story or a fantasy world imagined by the older brother to entertain the younger one. There are some interesting characters and stories in the secret world by the secret sidewalk. It was an entertaining story with flying people, invisible people, criminals, and even some sex. There were tribes that each had a specific job that in turn gave them superpowers. (For example, the Compost People can turn anything into super rich dirt, the Hosers have the power of tidiness and can compress themselves into tiny packages that fit into soda cans or other small containers, and the Mountaineers, have the power of magnetism so that they can make anyone do anything and are the most powerful of all the tribes.) Strange but entertaining and appealing in an odd way.

I hadn't planned to comment on this book, but after reading the other reviews, decided to add my two cents.
"Secret Sidewalk" is unlike anything I've ever read. It is not written for children, even though the two main characters are the narrator and his younger brother. The older boy is telling his little brother a very imaginative tale, that grows as it is told. The unique characters in this fantasy world come straight from the mind of a creative pre-teen.
I read this one day that I had several other things planned; definitely held my interest.
