Life During Wartime


"This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around..."

David Mingolla has an amazing gift and a honorific curse - one and the same - psychic power, also possessed by "others" in varying degrees, and used with a pallet of good and evil to paint the canvas of LIFE DURING WARTIME. Unbeknownst to David, he's been pitted against the root of all evil, war itself.

Taking place in the jungles of Central America in the near future, this novel is a graphic study of the horrors of war with an "Apocalypse Now" vibe of psychedelic and hardcore drugs, explicit sex, and brutal violence. Lucius Shepard knocked this one out of the park and pulled off what most writers would be scared to attempt, with an absolute masterpiece.

Trippy, dreamlike, shocking and BEAUTIFUL. Rest in peace Lucius. I love you man!
