From Gershom Reese Wetzel’s Teres

Raine Corbette

He seemed vampiric, sallow. Maybe it was the light from the table lamps. Maybe it was his size against the looming scale of the room with its tall windows. Perhaps it was just Raine’s abundant personality, magnified like a sun when he smiled, churning like a storm when brooding suited him.

Teres – It’s About Time

December 10, 2013 at 8:46 pm (Fan Art, Reviews) (, , , , , , , , , )

TeresTitle: Teres

Author: Gershom Reese Wetzel

Publisher: LucidBooks

Genre: Science Fiction

I read this book in April of this year (2013) when it was still a pdf file. Go back in time a few (or ten) years and I remember listening to Gershom (my dear friend) talk about his ideas regarding a character named Teres.  I remember a very cool dinner party at Macaroni Grill with Teresa Noreen, who seemingly semi-inspired the character Wetzel invented in his mind.

She was stunning.  So is the book.

I read the book in approximately three to four hours.  I believe it’s 300 pages or so long.  It was riveting, and I was doing a real time discussion as I read with the author, searching for mistakes.  There really weren’t any that I recall.

I’ve been leery about posting a formal review on any of my typical sites (shelfari, goodreads, amazon, etc.) though.  Not because I don’t like the book – I love it – but because I have the great honor of being mentioned on the back of the book and I don’t want any potential customer to feel duped or think my thoughts are self-serving or insincere.

back cover Teres

I feel too close to write an unbiased review, but I am way too excited about Teres to leave my thoughts undocumented.

Teres is all action and go from start to finish.  It’s glorious sci fi patterned stylistically after typical books of the genre, but with a depth that is not easily comparable in anything else I’ve read.  Wetzel may not have intended on delivering such a moving message about life, government, and religion, but by nature he’s a wise messenger and that couldn’t help but come across in his writing.

As I mention in so many of my posts, I am a sucker for dystopian societies, and this one is right up there with the infamous Big Brother from 1984 and Libria from the amazing film Equilibrium.

What makes Wetzel’s work so engrossing is what a visual masterpiece he has created.  He is first and foremost an artist, then a graphic designer and author.  His writing is enhanced by the images his fingers itch to draw out on paper.   It’s also really cool that he has the ability to do all his own cover and concept art.

I can’t wait to see more from this character – and her creator.  I see sequels and graphic novels and films of the Aeon Flux caliber in Teres’ future.

When I’m Not Reading… I still hang out in bookstores…

June 3, 2013 at 1:01 am (Events) (, , , , , , , )

And I love hanging out in bookstores with Aoristos, Wine, Cheese, and more Aoristos!

20130601_144839Good Books in the Woods of The Woodlands was kind enough to host a wine and cheese tasting while allowing patrons to look over the shoulders of the artist of Aoristos while he drew FREE custom portraits.  (There’s a map of the store at the entrance because it’s easy to get lost in the wonderful maze of books.)

20130601_144847At events, Aoristos sells prints: one print for $15,  2 for $25, 3 or more for $10 each.

20130601_152437Marilyn, Anakin, and Artisan… What a lovely combination…

20130601_152524HEB has a surprisingly awesome wine selection.  Purple Cowboy was the universal favorite of the day by all Good Books in the Woods patrons.

A Weekend With Super Heroes

May 7, 2013 at 3:31 am (Events) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Half Price Books Humble just celebrated May the Fourth Be With You in serious style.  There was a costume contest, a raffle, Comicpalooza tickets to give away, free comic books, and free art work by some amazing artists.

Bright and early in the morning, sporting a Spiderman t-shirt and super awesome white frilly skirt, my daughter showed up bright eyed and bushy tailed to get her own free artwork.  Here she is chatting with artist Merrick Shaka Khan.

Then, Aoristos – Creationeer arrived to offer his artistic talents to our customers for a few hours. It was amazing to watch him put peoples’ faces into their favorite characters.
