Be sure to pick up a copy of the July LightSpeed Magazine for an excellent review of Eugen Bacon’s CLAIMING T-MO, by reviewer Chris Kluwe!
Claiming T-Mo is a book packed with so much love, fear, pain, and hope, that it invites multiple re-readings, and is good enough to justify the time spent doing so. Read if: You like seeing words that don’t get used very often; you’re okay with non-perfect families trying to get by; your family issues include teleporting demi-gods.Chris Kluwe, LIGHTSPEED MAGAZINE #110
In this lush interplanetary tale, an immortal priest flouts the conventions of a matriarchal society by choosing a name for his child. The act initiates chaos that splits the boy in two, unleashing a Jekyll-and-Hyde child upon the universe: named T-Mo by his mother and Odysseus by his father. The story unfolds through the eyes of these three distinctive women: Silhouette, Salem and Myra - mother, wife, and daughter. As they struggle to confront their fears and navigate the treacherous paths to love and accept T-Mo/Odysseus and themselves, the darkness in Odysseus urges them to unbearable choices that threaten their very existence.More info →
