In Floating on Secrets, Tantra Bensko follows protagonist, Flair, as she lives and works in small-town, Indiana. Her life seems to be split into three parts: work, floating in a sensory deprivation tank, and obsessing over love and the possibility of it. Lines do get blurred between some of those elements early on as Flair has almost out-of-body psychedelic trips induced by the tank. Has she imagined and fantasized about the short, unexpected romantic encounter with a mystery man in the tank or ...more

For Tantra Bensko's maybe-6th novel - as finely written and wicked a ride as Collapsible Horizon, as Remember to Recycle - the author brings a wild neo.Expressionist sensibility to the most unlikely - and routinely derided - of genres: the ROMANCE. But, as Willie once sang, "Miracles appear in the strangest of places" and, alas, her take on Romance deserves the header that graced the covers of Alan Moore's run of Swamp Thing: "Sophisticated Suspense." Her title, FLOATING ON SECRETS, is sufficien ...more

A book that delves into the deepest reaches of your mind while engaging you in a delicious story is something of a fable these days. From the very first page Floating on Secrets by Tantra Bensko is a veritable mind-bending tale that creeps into the corners of your psyche while regaling you with the intriguing life and times of Flair. Our protagonist is interesting and cryptic in how she deals with the world. She knows there is so much out there for her; she can feel it in the roots of her neo-ps ...more

This is a fast-paced suspense-romance like no other that I ever read. The story transports the reader to places that are not commonly explored and experienced. It is a treat to read and become immersed in. And once you start reading this story, you will definitely want to know how it turns out.

Flair is a beautiful bartender who loves neo-phychodelic rock music. She lives in a world that is quite removed from the ordinary. She studies psychology and finds her peace and solace in float tanks be
