Synopses & Reviews
The Nix family has arrived.
And Latchahie County will never be the same.
In an effort at improving his family's lot, the Nixes have moved to rural Florida to open Dogland: a combination zoo, restaurant and motel. But it isn't long before Nix and his clan of eccentric supporters run afoul of unsympathetic locals.
The problem? Luke Nix has hired Ethorne Hawkins.
Hawkins is black. And it's 1959.
"A deceptively simple story, rich with complex characters and timeless themes. This novel will charm enthusiasts of contemporary fantasy."--Publishers Weekly
A "compelling, absorbing, hard-edged work, lit by glimpses of another, more fantastic reality: reminiscent of top-notch Orson Scott Card, child-centered but tackling adult themes fearlessly and with great charm."--Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
lives in Bisbee, Arizona, with his beloved wife, Emma Bull, and his tolerated cat, Buddha. (They didn't name him. They don't know who Buddha fooled into thinking he was enlightened.) He writes novels, screenplays, short stories, and comic books. He's proudest of Dogland
-your mileage may vary. He thinks his two best short stories are "The Princess Who Kicked Butt" and "Dream Catcher."
In 1994, he ran for Governor of Minnesota and finished third in a field of six. It really isn't worth watching Toxic Zombies to see his very brief appearance in a very bad movie.
