Tamper was a welcome read, a great novel about the things we see, and the things we believe we see - and, is there a difference there? The story setting is familiar and exotic at the same time - with flashbacks to a time that's not there anymore, and that was filled with wonder.

There's an underlying tension to the book - something you would find in Stephen King or HP Lovecraft, and I don't pass comparisons with a light heart; the story picked up pace and the writing was wonderfully crafted to se

A rather charming tale of one man's search for the truth. Reminiscent of the Hardy Boys but grown up and living a modern age of mystery and fantastic wonder. This story goes places you never expect while still managing to keep its feet firmly planted on terra firma. A very realistic soul trip.

“Idols of the injury,
dug in behind the least understood
motor plan information.
The vile abomination temporal lobes and
The four loathsome memory walls and
The four reasoning, arithmetic beasts
are found for all behind pain and planes.

Portrayed as a house,
Go in, function, cause blindness from
The house's hearing spirit, judgment and
The court's four bronze woes and
The functioning brain lobe wings,
Go in, hearing and perception,
I dig under door fronts, pain and plans.”
