What Readers Are Saying about The Book of Squidly Light
“This book is dynamic, intelligent, sensitive and poignant, containing both sunshine and rain. For this reader, it is a delightful apocalypse. It has a dizzying menagerie of characters dealing with time travel, alien encounters, parallel universes, all couched in the author’s core values of love, hope, courage and acceptance, combined with her inherent sense of whimsy and authenticity. The story is a beautiful tapestry of today’s headlines including a crazy dictator directing the theatre of the absurd. It reads like science fiction, but feels like REAL.”
Re: A Different Kind of Squid – NOT a Horror Story
Since books that sound alike are sometimes grouped together in the public mind, we of the LightSQUIDian Federation and the Dry Gulch Creek Editorial Board hereby repudiate any similarity between The Book of Squidly Light and various horror publications with titles or author names containing the words “light” or “squid”. Rather than wishing to “make your skin crawl and your nights sleepless” we hope to bring you comfort, inspiration, illumination, joy, and laughter.
To this declaration we hereby (therefore, heretofore, and henceforth) set our hand and seal—our hand, tentacle, paw, hoof, and seal.

The Life and Times of Halycon Sage
HALYCON SAGE, founder of the post-modernist minimalist neo-symbolist pseudo-realist school of literature, has voluntarily disappeared. The author is hoping to save the world, but has also run away from the Mail Pile.
HALYCON SAGE, whose origins, identity and whereabouts are all mysterious and who may be a Native American male, is about to meet some odd characters: petulant critic Basel Vasselschnauzer, confused genius Alexander Preisczech, a Gypsy, assorted gang members and secret agents, and a shadowy figure of evil.
HALYCON SAGE has a faithful equine companion, No-Name Stupid (the original “Horse with No Name”). But even with Stupid’s dedicated assistance, can the great quest succeed? And will “Boo Radley Goes Hawaiian” ever be written?
Readers say, “Too much fun! Absolutely hilarious!” “A whole new kind of fiction that defies categorization. It’ll have you laughing out loud.” “This is a book different from your usual read, and one that has hidden depths.”
