Tire Grabbers (second edition) - John Bennett

Tire Grabbers

The revised second edition of Tire Grabbers, speculative fiction that goes beyond Orwell and Huxley, projecting a future into which we are rapidly moving. It is the story of Moloch, a horrific force beyond good and evil that mutates out of the modern world and begins feeding on spiritual marrow, threatening Mankind's extinction. And it is the story of the children who challenge Moloch, with their innocence and with an army of mind creatures that they eject into the outer world and call (for reasons that become evident as the plot thickens) Tire Grabbers. The first edition attracted a cult following and received rave reviews.

"Tire Grabbers is a rambunctious, ramshackle whale of a novel..."

Jim Feast
Evergreen Review
NYC

"Despite praise from Bukowski, Saul Bellow and Tom Robbins, three highly distinctive American idols, a broad audience has yet to discover Bennett. Tire Grabbers could break the barricades.

David Milholland
Clinton Street Quarterly
Portland, OR

"The writing is edgy, fast-paced and thoroughly engaging, as with everything that Bennett has written in the past. Tire Grabbers is certainly a high-water mark in Bennett's long career..."

CHILDREN OF THE SUN & EARTH - John Bennett

CSE

John Bennett's latest novel. A lean, hard-hitting 226 pages, a story of smuggling and drug trafficking that stretches from the American Revolution into the turbulence of the Vietnam War and the explosion of cocaine use in America during that era.

"What happens when seasoned Vietnam vets form their own drug cartel and go up against Pablo Escobar and the entire intelligence community of the U.S. government?All hell breaks loose ..."

 "I tend to start books in the evening, to read just a few pages before hitting the sack... but this book it just sucked me in. Early on I was caught up in the re-creation of the world of smuggling drugs in 19th-century Seattle. I dont know how you did that research, but it was very rich, specific, believable. Impressive stuff... from there on I was in. The book just kept moving and moving. Great stuff..."

Kent Meyers, author of The Work of Wolves and Twisted Tree.

Tire Grabbers (first edition) - John Bennett

yes

"...the writing is edgy, fast-paced, and thoroughly engaging, as with everything that Bennett has written in the past. Tire Grabbers is certainly a high-water mark in Bennett's long career, a postmodern parable to rattle the cage of the terminally disenchanted."

Mark Terrill
Small Press Review
Paradise, CA

"Upon my first reading I could not help but see parallels to Philip K. Dick's Valis Trilogy....the great J.R.R. Tolkien....and Robert Anton Wilson's Cosmic Trigger. But there is much more to Bennett's vision than the obvious comparisons to the above authors...This is a book that must be read, studied and enjoyed. This is speculative fiction at its best."

B.L. Kennedy
Rattle Snake Review
Sacramento, CA

"Tire Grabbers is a work of epic dimensions, with its own mythic (cosmological) structure, its struggle between good and evil, its heroes and villains, all of whom engage you as complex characters in their own right...."

Richard Livermore
Chanticleer Magazine
Edinburgh, Scotland

"Despite praise from Bukowski, Saul Bellow and Tom Robbins, three highly distinctive American idols, a broad audience has yet to discover Bennett. Tire Grabbers could break the barricades."

David Milholland, Editor

Bodo - John Bennett

bedo65

A novel about a German war orphan who grows up in America and self-destructs in a burst of flashbacks in the Sixties.

"Bodo is as well-told and movingly described a story as many a ballyhooed book stacked in shiny covers in major bookstores."

San Diego Reader
San Diego, CA

"Bennett's writing is fluid and often movingly perceptive..."

Publisher's Weekly

"Bennett brings to his novel a hard, clean style, knowledge of history, a satirical edge and unusual tact."

Los Angeles Times
