More About the Author

Michael L. Wexler was born on tax day (April 15), 1970 and was thus written off from a very young age.

Defying all odds, he thrived in the middle class suburbia of Highland Park, NJ, spending time as "Munchkin" at the Rutgers University Microlab (age 13), and setting off fireworks with Perry Kolias.

With a dearth of plaid and a Brooklyn Fade haircut, Wexler arrived at Princeton University in the Fall of 1989 and quickly met all the right people -- ensuring quality vacation homes and good conversation to this day.

When seeking fame and fortune as a ladder to happiness proved unsound, Wexler resorted to dreaming up fantasy worlds inside of which to contextualize his ennui -- and has been residing there ever since.

Though family members have often pleaded with him to return to the "real world," and a stint in "the Big House" has not been ruled out, Wexler has cobbled together a patchwork cosmology which has kept him incarceration-free and in fairly good physical health.

Mike or Michael -- either way is fine -- enjoys Autumn, long walks in the park, chess, tennis, songwriting, and sitting on pool decks in the sun.

Format: Hardcover
It's always great to find a new book series that has it all: adventure, action, charm, humor. And when I first stumbled across THE SEEMS by John Hulme and Michael Wexler, I knew that this was going to be something good. And it was. The first book, THE GLITCH IN SLEEP, was a good entry into the new world of the Seems - the world creating The World. While a bit cutesy at moments, it definitely was a fun fantasy/adventure title. And then book two, THE SPLIT SECOND, took everything that was great about the first book and made it even better. So nothing could have set my expectations higher than when I discovered the third volume, THE LOST TRAIN OF THOUGHT. And while it definitely promised a lot, it didn't quite live up to it.

The plot starts straight out with Fixer Becker Drane's court trial in the Seems. Becker has broken rules in the Seems, and now the Powers That Be have decided that he needs to be held accountable for his actions. But before the final verdict comes down, a Train of Thought bound for The World goes missing, as do four of the best Fixers known in all the Seems. Soon Becker finds himself on a mission to save The World once again, but this time, if he fails, the Seems may just come crumbling to its knees as well.

Hulme and Wexler include much of the same humor - striking puns of everyday phrases. They also have plenty of mystery going on: where is the lost train? Who is trying to overthrow the Seems? What really is The Most Amazing Thing of All? But where this book seemed to fail was the fact that it kept cutting away just as an action scene was about to begin. And instead of showing us, they just skipped ahead and explained in a paragraph or two what had happened.

SPOILERS…

Becker dies in the end! yeah it was a noble death and all but what about his family and his younger brother? they simply lose their memories and never question where he went to, oh come on! his girlfriend also gets her memory erased and we never know what happens after. I would have loved to see Beckers little brother become a fixer with Becker. It might have ever worked with his girlfriend! I loved the series bit was dissapointed in the ending.
