From Publishers Weekly
When Beto Orozco revives the ancient Aztec god Tezcatlipoca via artificial intelligence technology in the ethnically indeterminate, cyber-heavy future, the trickster god inhabits Beto's body and enters the Hollywood scene in Ernest Hogan's (High Aztech) Smoking Mirror Blues. This hyperactive, racy, imaginative novel imagines the collision of a pop-American underworld, practically limitless technological capabilities and a mischievous deity's predilection for taking control by wreaking havoc.
