Just when you think you’ve read just about every genre, with every possible plot, and scenario, along comes <b>Burnt Jesus</b> by Landon Alspiret. First, not to worry, lightening will not strike you, second, you may still suffer from anxiety and looking over your shoulder at times, again, not to worry. Third, you may suffer from sore laugh muscles, once you get over the “did he really say that?” feeling.
Leon was a blandly regular guy, he probably sets the standard for the definition of non-descript, over-looked, etc. when, one day, along comes a severely disfigured man who claims to be Jesus, from another plane of existence and he needs help from Leon to stop the mysterious murderer who is killing off all of the Jesusi from other realities. Is it Lucifer? If not, then who is it? Has Leon’s life finally taken on some excitement or has he gone over the edge? Once all of the remaining alternate reality Jesusi can get together, it is only with Leon’s help, that the answers may be found. What does this journey mean for Leon? Will he come out unscathed, or will some monumental change come over him? What of those from other realities? And…what’s so special about Leon’s appendix?
Burnt Jesus and his alternate reality selves are detailed, intelligent and a little hyper, preferring riddles to straightforward answers.
Are you looking for something a little out there, different, humorous, irreverent, yet harmless? Landon Alpsiret’s style is quirky, yet entertaining, playing with words, playing minds, pushing the envelope of creative writing! I see a cult following behind Mr. Alspiret’s writing, an yes, even mainstream readers looking for something a little different!
