Ira Nayman's You Can't Kill The Multiverse (But You Can Mess With It's Head)

You Can't Kill The Multiverse (But You Can Mess With It's Head) PosterLadies and gentlemen, I've spent a lot of time working on nonsense manuscripts. In fact, I like comedy pieces that rely heavily on it. I enjoyed Dream Catcher and, no matter how many people tell me it was supposed to be a serious story, I'm not about it. Being John Malkovich, How to be a Serial Killer, Wristcutters: A Love Story... Some of the best fantasy novels and reads are strictly based in nonsense. I mean they literally have little basis in reality, which makes them, literally, nonsense. Imagine then what it feels like to read nonsense that has an absolutely nonsensical dialogue, inner dialogue, and narrations to boot. Think The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe.

You Can't Kill the Multiverse (But You Can Mess with Its Head) is ridiculous. I was recently sent an excerpt from the author, a fellow purveyor of nonsense like myself, and I was blown away by the writing style. It reads like intelligent gibberish, which I loved. I was stoked to find that it's part of a series for those of us who take life a little lighter than others and expect our reads to do the same.

Free Welcome to the Universe PosterThis sequel to Welcome to the Multiverse (Sorry for the Inconvenience) is almost an invention of style itself. Very few authors would dare it and far fewer publishers would relish in the idea of publishing it. The story goes something like this: A young man, a nearly failed but still "accomplished" (in that he made it through school) wizard is working into the night. His plan is the same as every dark wizard's, to punish humanity through magic. What better way is there to accomplish such a feat than to turn every vehicle on Earth into frogs. Wait, huh? That's right, he turns every vehicle on Earth into frogs, accidentally.

The Street Finds It's Own Uses For Mutant Technologies AccessoriesSo, he's a bumbling, fumbling idiot. Perhaps not the best trait for a dark wizard. That isn't even the most funny part. The narration of the entire story seems to come out almost like a thought—with pauses, doubling back to slightly change a statement, and modesty overridden by small inlets of truth. I loved it. The only thing more enjoyable are the comments from other characters that hilariously make smart remarks about their own situations or actions. Definitely a book worth checking out, or set of books as it were. Check 'em out and let me know what you think downstairs. Indie?
