BIBLIORATI TAKES A LOOK BACK AT BOBBY NASH'S FANTASTIX!


Original novel cover.
Bibliorati's Ron Fortier jumps in the way back machine for a look at my second published novel, FANTASTIX. I really loved this novel and have fond memories of the super-powered characters involved. I also wrote a graphic novel version of this tale that was illustrated by the great Daniele Serra. Sadly, both the comic and novel have been out of print for years, at least a decade for the novel, a little less for the comic. Here's hoping maybe one day the property owner will get them re-released. You can read the full review here.

This is only Nash's second book and it is wonderfully executed. He has matured considerably as a writer since that first offering and the control with which he spins this yarn is both deft and entertaining. I really enjoyed reading this book and came to love these characters. If superheroes are your cup of tea, do not pass up FANTASTIX. It has a lot to say.

The odd thing about the timing of this is that this is the free ebook giveaway to Patrons of my Patreon page who pledge $5 and above are receiving in April. Fantastix is a true rarity in my body of work. Only a small few saw this novel before it was pulled from sales channels. Want the chance to read this novel, the only way to get it is to pledge $5 or more a month to my Patreon page. You'll also be entered into monthly giveaways, a free ebook each month, some nifty behind the scenes information, and Patron exclusive sneak peeks of works in process. You should join us. You can sign up for Patreon here.

FANTASTIX
A novel by Bobby Nash
FANTASTIX IS OUT OF PRINT AND UNAVAILABLE FOR ORDER.

Where were you when it happened?

Dominus, the world’s greatest super hero has been murdered. His body left on a battle damaged New York City street for all to see, the media descends on the crime scene, transmitting the grisly images across the globe. Within a matter of hours the entire world bears witness to the gruesome murder.

It is a message for all those who dare oppose Haven.

Message received.

NYPD Homicide Detective Robert Bettina draws the case. Pressured from above to solve the case quickly, Detective Bettina begins his investigation at the morgue where the autopsy of Dominus is underway. The question plaguing the detective and the medical examiner is a tough one. How do you cut open an indestructible body?

Former super hero, Rob Temple, on the run with his new friend Max, whom he nicknames Mouse, arrive in Mongomerey, Alabama. Like most meta humans, people born with special powers and abilities, they are being hunted by Haven, an international criminal organization bent on eradicating those metas who could potentially stand between them and their goals.

Meanwhile, the world holds its collective breath wondering what is going to happen next.

Together, these elements make up the fabric of FANTASTIX: CODE RED (Originally released March 2006), a taught, suspense thriller from author Bobby Nash (Evil Ways).

FANTASTIX: CODE RED is the story of Lore, Frisk, Kracklin; freedom fighters determined to save as many of their brothers and sisters from Haven with the aid of their mysterious Benefactor, a man with a connection to Project Code Red. Can they succeed against such overwhelming odds?

FANTASTIX: CODE RED is a story about heroes and their destiny.

As FANTASTIX: CODE RED builds to its startling climax, all of these questions will be answered as the fate of the future hangs in the balance. Who will be left standing when the dust clears?
