We loved this review of Claiming T-Mo by Angela Wauchop in Other Terrain Journal, Issue 7. We are stoked about this enthralling debut by Eugen Bacon.

Claiming T-Mo is more than its stylistic elements of sci-fi, fantasy and speculative fiction— it reads like a well-woven memoir, a family saga in a parallel universe in which human and alien interaction is not such a strange occurrence. This novel will ground and hook you with ‘what is’, and enchant and reel you in with what might be.

Claiming T-Mo

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.
