A mythical tale exploring and defining the realms of reality and the supernatural, The Sorcerer's Song And The Cat's Meow tells the story of Middle Eastern Sorcerer Aikeem Abdul Jamal Yosaffa, and his faithful feline companion, Pendella Purrfect.
Aikeem, a Sorcerer who has traveled thousands of years perfecting his craft, meets Pendella Purrfect in an alley in New York City. Recognizing that each has a great power for good, they instantly bond and an unconditional love is cultivated. Together, they travel between the world of reality and the magical world of Dreamscape, a plain of existence that defies the laws of nature. In this magical world, animals such as rats, sloths, felines, and rabbits have the ability to talk, walk upright, and reason. As Aikeem and Pendella Purrfect travel between the two plains of existence, they meet such colorful and unforgettable characters as Striped Seer, Snapper the Cat, Jackenstein Muddleboot, and Blitherskites.
On their magical journey, the forces of good and darkness collide. Threatened by sinister forces seeking to destroy and enslave humanity, a struggle to save humankind emerges. In the city of Avalon, where the fate of humanity resides, dark forces, guided by the ominous creatures Dark Seer and Daagbo, seek to align all the creatures of darkness in an effort to overthrow humanity and replace humans as the occupiers of the real world. Aikeem and Pendella Purrfect enlist those with the power of good to fight the Army of Darkness.
As the tale unfolds, readers are encouraged to use their imagination. A well-plotted story with vivid and riveting description of characters and settings, as well as an intense page turning battle, the book is a delight to read. In today’s world, where technology and the quest for superficial material pleasures often act as a deterrent to creative thought, The Sorcerer's Song And The Cat's Meow encourages readers to embrace their dreams. This book would make a great a movie.
I highly recommend this mythical novel to young adults, and to fans of such sorcerer stories as the “Harry Potter” books.

TRITCHEON HASH by Sue Lange $14.95 on sale at Amazon.com & Metropolis Inklink.
Basically a sci-fi romantic comedy, this sometimes-hilarious satire on the battle of the sexes posits separate lives on a faraway planet for women, leaving all the men back on Earth to their own devices, free to pollute the fragile environment and kill each other in pointless warfare. The vegetarian, pacifist women from 30th century colony 'Coney Island' are led by Zen scientists. Pragmatic feminist leaders are secretly considering re-unification, but they aren't sure what the menfolk have been up to, alone for centuries, and FTL space probes can't get through the stratospheric blanket of murk enveloping humanity's home-world, so they send flawed Amazonian test pilot Tritcheon Hash on a solo flight to spy on mankind. Tough spacer Tritch meets her match in thoroughly domesticated biologist, Dr Bangut Walht, who's quite unlike any male that Tritch's paranoid superiors had taught her to expect. But she also has to contend with the unwelcome attentions of Colonel Slab Ricknoy, an incompetent if farcically aggressive warmonger. Should Tritch abandon her beautiful wife Drannie and two kids back on planet Coney to move in with Bangut at his GM farm? Will Drannie still be waiting for Tritch when she returns home to file her recon report? What happens when Bang and Slab both realise that they're in love with the same woman? Sue Lange's debut novel assigns the same utility value to a bucket as The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy did to a towel, but there's far more going on here than just witty asides and daffy quips. There are keen insights regarding human nature, irrespective of gender, so TRITCHEON HASH is certainly worth your time and money, whether you're a diehard space opera fan, a student of life, or whatever...
