5.0 out of 5 stars Sympathy For The Devil. 29 May 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After a long reign as the bad boy of rock 'n' roll, the years of excess had caught up with Joe Gibson. Now a bitter burn-out, he couldn't imagine his life getting any worse - until a strange gentleman arrived on his doorstep hinting at great things to come. But when their car was attacked in midtown Manhattan by a Haitian voodoo hit squad and then rescued by interdimensional secret agents, Joe realized that he was not headed for a come-back solo album.

Instead, he became trapped in a nightmare odyssey through the dimensions, pursued by renegade demons and otherworldly death merchants. For an ancient evil was once again beginning to stir in the universe - and to his horror, Joe suspected he was the key that could unleash the ultimate terror that was Necrom...

5.0 out of 5 stars Run don't walk 16 May 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Reread this recently before lending it to the girlfriend. I had forgotten how damn good it is. Basically take every damn conspiracy theory plus the kitchen sink and more drugs than you can shake a stick up, mix them up and ladle on generously.
Highlights far too many to mention but this is the multi-verse as it should be full of hard drinking, hard living demons and suspiciously squeaky clean interdimensional hoppers. Joe Gibson is a drug raddled alcholic but hes our drug raddled alcholic.
A victory of style over substance.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decadent spin through the dimensions in a '51 Hudson... 14 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Meet Joe Gibson. The alter Mick Jagger, who instead becoming clean cut and keeping his band together, is a washed up drunk wishing for the old days of rock 'n roll glory. Enter the Aryan aztecs seemingly intend on protecting him from other wordly beings out to kill him. Throw in the most colorful and awsome demon characters put to paper to turn everything around, then toss in Necrom. A malevolent god like being whos very name makes everyone cringe, and is starting to wake up again much to the terror of everyone. Mix this together with great plot twists, beligerent humor, and you have one fast moving book of sex, drugs, rock 'n roll and demons with a Jesse James complex.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weird with a capital weeee... 6 May 1999
By -gs- [pooka@brown.edu] - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm still not sure how I feel about Necrom. There were a lot of loose ends that don't seems to make much sense, but it was funny and weird enough in places that it kept me interested. Let's face it, you can't get much stranger than an over the hill rock star, kidnaped by an assortment of fun lovin' demons and high-tech Aztechs, being dragged kicking and screaming across multiple dimensions to help wake up an (the) elder god.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOS ANGELES READER -SOUTH OF CENTRAL 13 Aug 2000
By Gabriel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I came a cross NERCOM at the library one day. "Mick Farren.. hmm! never heard of him" ugh! what the hell I'll check it out. I opened onto the first page of NERCO hoping it wasn't another lemon from the library. But by Gaulle I never read such sci-fi like this. MICK FARREN IS THE BOMB sci-fi telling mu fu Were your books at though DAWG. You got me searching all my life.
4.0 out of 5 stars A spiritual, drug induced romp through time and space. 21 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Over-age rocker, against his will, travels time and space to save. . .time and space. The old god wakes, and last time he was around, he was pissed off. Our hero has adventures with drugs, flakes, good music, deamons and police-from-beyond . It's a romp and a guilty pleasure to read

2.0 out of 5 stars No plot, little fun, rehashed story-line 13 July 2001
By OoOoOoO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The usual Mick-style "Tour of the Universe" adventure story plus a little Cthulhu mythos cross-over. Not done well, however, No or little plausible plot, unconvincing paranoia, stop-start scripting, unconvincing characters acting out unconvincing story-line, in general poor handling of dramatic tension. No climax. Stereotypical hackwork. A long long way down from, Phaid the Gambler, Mars The Red Planet or the DNA Cowboys. I only tolerated this because I am a die-hard far-right fanatical fundamentalist Mick Farren Fan. Sorry, Mick, not one of your better days, I am afraid.
