Format: Paperback
"Hangar" is an ambitious, giddy mega-riff on films (especially Fifties B-movies), vampires, tiki culture, werewolves, zombies, East Bay (Northern California) locales, politics, gory cartoonish violence, explicit (sometimes icky) sex and pretty much anything else you can probably imagine. Its characters and its pacing are often manic, its scope and tone flirts with epical, cheesy notions, making this one of the most id-tastic, action-packed rollercoaster works I've read this year. Did I mention that this is NOT a kid-friendly book?

I have one nit about this 514-page, self-referential novel, and it's relatively minor: whenever Radon and Adam Brayne have their "hard science" conversations, they run way too long, almost bring the story to a screeching halt (even Brayne complains about the down-the-rabbit-hole feel of these exchanges). While I admire the authors' ambition of updating - providing fresh wrinkles - to this Fifties B-movie novel and I understand how cerebral Radon can be, his exchanges with Brayne ramble for pages when a relatively few, concise lines would suffice. Yes, some of these conversations, a mixing of nerd-tastic science and smutty sex comparisons, are funny, but early on they take on a filler-not-thriller feel.

As I noted before, this is a minor nit in a work that's one of the most gleeful, imaginative, bordering-on-epic novels I've read this year. "Hangar" expands the notion of a "genre blender," takes it to new, heady heights. If you can get past the rambling sections - seventy-five pages could have easily been cut - this is the book you should be buying right now.

I loved this book. Full disclosure - I bought it because it was written in and about my hometown of Alameda and includes several scenes in my favorite Tiki Bar there. I don't normally read pulp fiction - but this book had me hooked from the beginning. Aliens who have been guiding us throughout history, zombies, vampires, tiki lore and settings, Richard Nixon, lots of gratuitous sex and space travel - all wrapped together in a crazy, wildly imagined and wonderful book. AND you get some physics/gravity/black-hole theory thrown in for your intellectual side. What's not to love?? It's hard to describe how all these seemingly random themes work together into a great read, but trust me, they definitely do!

Space, Aliens, Science, Rockets, Vampires, Zombies, Monsters, Women (oh, the women), Nixon, Mobsters, Elvis, Sex, Booze, Drinking, Bars, and Tiki. And Legends. And Gold. This was a fun read all the way through. I thoroughly enjoyed it from cover to cover. What will happen Next!? as the chapters interpose like an old movie serial, blending the entertwined and twisted plotlines together and around each other until the final climax (of which there are many...). And if you're really intrigued after reaching the end, visit the source of it all, on Alameda Island; just start at Hanger ONE and work your way down the bar. When you are done you'll at least know WHAT gravity IS. And you'll never have a Mai Tai quite the same way again. Read This Book, and don't stop, is my advice.

Format: Paperback
Fulks' & Viharo's It Came from Hangar 18 is the literary equivalent of the Trader Vic's Zombie: best consumed on an empty stomach and sipped leisurely. It is a pop culture full frontal assault, knocking aside all your previous literary sensibilities like the cosmic tenpins in Valhalla. It reads like Popeye's manly devotional, with the occasional splash of cold-water science via Sherman and Mr. Peabody. It will make you both smarter and hornier than you ever thought humanly possible, while leading you by the curiosity straight through the minefield of existential Possibility. It is a heavy metal ballad of the human condition, with a chorus of The Ventures and a turnaround by Martin Denny. It is the script for the greatest drive-in movie of all time: the dream collaboration of Robert Rodriguez, Rod Serling and Russ Meyer. It will introduce you to things you've never heard of, and remind you of things you forgot before you were born. It will scare, inspire and titillate you; it will kick your intellectual ass and uplift your spirit, if you have one. It will simultaneously ennoble and humble you like the noir Philosopher's Stone. It is the book you have been preparing to read all your life. Throw out your Raymond Chandler, your Joe Lansdale and your Bukowski: the future of sharp, tumescent writing is here and it abides in Hangar 18.
