Free download ↠ Spaceman Blues ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Brian Francis Slattery ´ 8 Read & Download When Manuel Rodrigo de Guzmán González disappears Wendell Apogee decides to find out where he has gone and why But in order to figure out what happened to Manuel Wendell must contend with parties cock. Sort of Neverwhere meets Men in Black if that can be believed Wendell s lover Manuel disappears and rather than grieve and let go Wendell decides to dedicate himself to finding him even if it means giving up everything he is and traveling deep into New York City s underworld a city beneath the city populated by the forgotten and the dispossessed Oh and also there are some aliensThere was a lot I liked about this book Slattery achieves some very moving moments moments that say a ton about the relationships between people and about how hard but also how important it is to make a connection Unfortunately pretty much all of these moments happen between minor characters I never felt like I really had enough of a handle on Wendell to feel the full weight of his transformation and his journey Part of this I think is because I found Slattery s prose style a little difficult he employs lots of long loopy dream like sentences and they can be a bit hard to follow I also found the red herring of Manuel s past and personality very frustrating he s not in the end very important to the story at all but it feels a little bait and switch to me this holy grail at the end of the uest that not only isn t holy but is manufactured by Dixie Cup Maybe if Slattery had sold the ending better or even just differently Still a lot about this book is memorable and strange and beautiful and it says some interesting things about immigrants in America and about love It also has a pair of buddy cops named Trout and Salmon So much potential Hopefully I ll be able to return to it in a few years and get out of it

Free download ↠ Spaceman Blues ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Brian Francis Slattery ´ 8 Read & Download Fights and chases; an underground city whose people live in houses suspended from cavern ceilings; urban weirdos and alien assassins; immigrants the black market flight riots and religious cults Painte. It s not often that one comes in contact with a truly literary style piece of science fiction with superheroes trench coat aliens and underground floating cities let alone a literary style piece of science fiction that works Slattery s Spaceman Blues is a stunning if not astonishing piece of fiction the kind of book you want to read over and over because each time you do you ll find something new that you missed before the kind of book that reigns in the pulpy goodness of the Golden Age of science fiction and comics with a style that will draw in readers of Thomas Pynchon and E L Doctorow in my opinion and based upon a limited exposure to those writersSpaceman Blues takes off with the disappearance of Manuel Rodrigo de Guzman Gonzalez the boyfriend of Wendell Apogee Wendell isn t willing to accept that Manuel is simply dead and sets out to find out what happened But in doing so he finds himself chased by alien assassins and the unexpected hero to an underground society stricken with fear by the destructive force of beings that have in store for the Earth than they are letting onWith a diverse cast each with their own stories and connections Spaceman Blues is a rather unusual and exciting read Every sentence seems packed with important information and Slattery s style manages to wander into the lives of his uniue characters while still pushing the story forward that wandering rarely harms the overall integrity of the story For such a short novel Spaceman Blues does so much it takes our main character from being just a man to a superhero digs into the lives of a multitude of characters each with uniue back stories and personalities and gives respect to the pulp literatures of the last century by taking them to a new level while still engaging with their classic natureReaders of Spaceman Blues may see interesting mythological parallels too The plot itself feels like an allusion to the story of Orpheus with Wendell descending into an underground world in search of his lover in much the same way as Orpheus had There are interesting parallels to Biblical figures too particularly the four horseman These elements add to the depth of the work giving it the sort of multi layered narrative not often found within inherently popular forms of literature particularly because the way this work is written intentionally draws one to the language to the writing itself and what Slattery is actually saying rather than what the basic points of the plot areSpaceman Blues is not without flaws though While I enjoyed the ending of Slattery s 219 page novel I expect some readers will dislike the lack of a significant conclusion and perhaps may find the pessimistic view at the end to be too literary or unsatisfying or depressing To add Slattery s style is not an entirely approachable one in the sense that it is not written like the novels that embrace the popular literature style He writes with a certain fluidity if that is the proper term to use here with sentences that would generally be considered run ons but work precisely because of the type of book Slattery was writing occasionally his style works against him when he wanders too far in the narrative If you want to read this book go into it understanding that it is written in a long literary style rather than the style you might be familiar withDespite its flaws Spaceman Blues is a fast paced and short read I d recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different because this work is certainly different if not uniue a character story than a plot story It s also an example of why Tor is one of the pioneers of science fiction publishing Slattery has an interesting vision that I m glad to see get the attention it deserves Hopefully I will have the opportunity to read of Slattery s work in the future because if Spaceman Blues is anything to go by I expect he ll have a long career ahead of himGo check it out
