Dance of the Chupacabras!

Today is turning into something of a Chupacabras special! While prowling around the Net earlier, I came across this new book: Dance of the Chupacabras, written by Lori Lopez. I have to confess that I haven't read it; however, the write-up looks like it will be an entertaining read:

A dark Wonderlandish "Odyssey" that merges and contrasts elements of humor and horror; fantasy, reality, and literary nonsense; legends, myths, and history; Pop, Mexican, and American Culture; wordplay and swordplay. It is a modern legend, a rumpus of revelrous rompery about being lost and choosing the road least traveled . . . the path unknown. In Tome One of the whimsical epic adventure, a Mexican-American brother duo of folklore dancers and a desert farmer - along with a diverse band of mortals, angels, and ghosts - battle supernatural forces to protect an oracle-princess as well as past, present, and future times from an Aztec serpent god's wrath. (Read sample chapters at the author's website:!)

WARNING: Contains big words and inventive language. What is an Author's Draft? This edition represents the author's pure and untampered vision!

About the Author

Lori Lopez is the mad scientist of writing. She delights in taking Literary (as well as Poetic) License to conduct bizarre experiments with the fundamental nuts and bolts and D.N.A.A.A. (Do Not Alter, Amend, or Ameliorate) conventions of Literature. This author's abnormal brain is constantly sawing and splicing and sewing oddball inconsistencies, while brewing tubes of syllabillic bubbly broths, formulating preposterous plots, mixing batches of garbly mumbled metaphors, conjuring jars of frothsome notiony potions, and zapping to life a lurching legion of eclecticly antic eccentrically assembled characters. Tome One began in 1996 as a rather simple idea for a screenplay based on and written for Lori's sons. The concept has evolved into not only one trilogy of intricate tales, but a trilogy of trilogies. Further details about her oddness and strange otherworldly projects can be gleaned by visiting her website: - but beware the consequences . . .
