The Way Beyond: The Life and Times of Halycon Sage

Sage and No-Name Stupid, his TV-watching, motel-sleeping horse, have escaped into the western desert to save the world. They’re helped by a brilliant but eccentric Czech inventor, an Iraqi-American family facing ruin, Ruby—resourceful queen of the Dirty Dog Gang—and Ratbone of the Fifth St. Mofos. They’re opposed by some detectives, some spies, and a shadowy figure of evil. The book critics, outlaws, and tiny invisible robots could go either way.

The Life and Times of Halycon Sage has the stirring immediacy of a guitar riff.
—BlueInk Review

“This deliciously funny, madcap novel leaps with frenetic energy reminiscent of Mid-1960s post modernism. —Kirkus Review

A tale that skirts in and out of reality and fancy, like a porpoise bobbing above and below the waves. — author James Partlow
