Johnson knows how to have fun on the page. The dialogue in BAD SUNSET is crisp, fresh, funny, and easy to hear bouncing around in your mind. But this is THE Alex S. Johnson, right? Odd things shall abound. Of course, while his characters are trading lines back and forth, and you realize you're only pages into the book, but he's ripped open a space-time continuum, introduced you to a badass magic man who rides a salamander, brought Jesus Christ himself into the mix, and let's not even get started [...]
Malpuesta Del Sol, or Bad Sunset, is a true Bizarro novel in every sense of the word, and one that I hope readers and critics alike will hold high and show reverence to in the same manner that the Chinese revere Chairman Mao Tse-Tung's "The Little Red Book".The genius of Alex S. Johnson is revealed in this book, which has taken over three years to write and refine. Who in their right mind would even consider weaving a tale comprised of elements such as a Wild West town; the second coming of Jesu [...]
A Bizarro Western that's also a beautifully crafted novel on it's own, "Bad Sunset" is a great read. Complex and dense, this book mixes various characters in Malpuesta Del Sol, a ultra-violent western town. Add some Biblical retelling, a pissed off Messiah, a mystical Brujo, his apprentice, and you got yourself a damn entertaining story. If you like well written Bizarro and the Wild West, this is definitely the book for you.
I find myself in quite the quandary here. The fact of the matter is I didn't like Bad Sunset. But - and here's the kicker - that isn't Alex S. Johnson's fault. It's mine.That's because I gave this short novel a shot even though I'm not normally a fan of bizarro works. I did so because I am a huge fan of westerns. And even though I understand that bizarro is going to warp any and all preconceived perceptions a reader may have for a book, I just couldn't get on board with Bad Sunset. For me, it to [...]
Wild Wild Wild West Bad Sunset it's a beautiful novel. It's a intense book with lots of well-constructed (and well known) characters, locked in horribly bizarre situations inside a town swallowed by time and dust. Bizarro, that's the perfect term to describe this warm world created by Alex. Mr. Johnson is one of these rare and incredible talents, a handful story-teller. Once you start to read, everything, including the most complex, the unthinkable, the wrong, all begins to happen inside your mi [...]
Now here is a guy who knows how to write with the business end of a pencil! Start with Clint Eastwood in a poncho somewhere in the Italian Old West. Add a zany cast of characters, a lot of bullets, and an assectomy and you have just scratched the surface of what you will find in this book. There are laughs on every page. It is slick and well written, chock full of pop culture references that will have you turning the pages as fast as you can read. I had to stay up until i finished reading this o [...]
