Sensing a theme here if I have the gumption

There was an awful story here but now there’s not. On the other hand, this has got to be the best dead lizard photo I have ever taken.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

The writing is well done though, and I never felt like the dark material was wrote for shock factor. It just worked with the overall feel of the book and character. This is a very complex book and felt like it was two books into one. There are two different plots going on in Every Dead Thing so it took a bit to get the backstory of both plots and all the characters. That’s why I’m not giving it all the stars.
