    (Atomik Aztex) [PDF NEW] ´ Sesshu Foster I choose to read this because the premise sounded so interesting Alternate history in which the Azteks survived and thrived contrasted with a multiple reality structure in which the protagonist is confronted by a reality in which the Azteks did not and he works at a meat packing plant However I didn't get the impression in reading the book that the protagonist in the 2 contrasting realities was the same person or was aware of his

review Atomik Aztex Sesshu Foster ☆ 4 Download Atomik Aztex Download ´ 104 In the alternate universe of this glitteringly surreal first novel the Aztecs rule having conuered the European invaders Zenzontli Keeper of the House of Darkness is visited by visions of a parallel world run by the Europeans where consumerism reigns supr. Eight years after finishing this book for the first time I still get excited whenever I discuss it pressing my copy upon friends and relatives with the wide eyed please read this entreaties of a newly saved evangelical Atomik Aztex is a wildly enjoyable read a super stylised detonation of slick phrases memorable scenes and some genuinely funny moments This is a book that makes you want to read sections aloud to your friends just to hear the rhythms and punches of Foster s sentences you may not want to read all of it out though there are some seriously blood and guts y sections Atomik Aztex is a story of two parts one a 20th century alternate reality where the Americas were never colonised by Europe and an Aztec Empire founded on Aztec techno spiritual practices and continual human sacrifice is a regional power The empire is fighting their timeline s World War Two and is engaged on the Eastern Front allied to the Russians The main character of the novel Zenzontil is a ranking member of this society a warrior leader slave owner and general badass This narrative is juxtaposed with the very different world of Zezontil s dreams where he endures the grinding existence of a Hispanic meat plant worker in 1940s California I m a bit of a history geek so Leopard skin cloaked Aztec warriors hunting Nazis through the ruins of Stalingrad was always going to get my boat out of dry dock but while the story and setting of Atomik Aztex are strong they aren t what make the book great What makes this book uniue is Foster s continually inventive and surprising prose Foster is a poet and it shows in the best possible way Language is his instrument and he coaxes words into truly entertaining rhythms furiously minting neologisms at a rate that would terrify the dictionary editors at Oxford Collins and MacuarieThis is Foster s only novel he has published several books of poetry and it made me an instant fan of his work I ve long hoped that he ll write another

I knew Sesshu Foster and I were going to have problems as soon as I read the note before the beginning of the book which I will reproduce in full because I think it gives a good sense of what Atomik Aztex is and is not aboutThis is a work of fiction Did he feel the need to say this because the cover only says Atomik Aztex and not Atomik Aztex A Novel Was there any way anybody could have mistaken a book with this title for a work of non fictionReaders looking for accurate information on Nahua and Mexica peoples or the Farmer John meat packing plant in the City of Vernon need to read nonfiction patronizing italics his So not only does he offend anyone who actually sought out his book and knew what they were looking for but he s casting doubt on all the seeming facts he includes in the book itself which is strange because he spends whole pages talking in great detail about the processes involved in for instance Aztec sacrifices or Farmer John meat packing A significant portion of the book is devoted to listing facts about all this stuff and he casts doubt on the accuracy of all of it before he even starts GreatPersons attempting to find a plot in this book should read Huck Finn Whoa wait No plot Shit Well he hasn t uite scared me off yetAlso in this book a number of dialects are used including the extreme form of the South Western pocho dialect cal ordinary inner city slang and modified varieties of speech from the Vietnam era This is no accident So from this it looks like there are going to be large portions of the book that are nigh incomprehensible to the average personMuch as I d like to I m not going to give him any flak about the note except to say that taken all together it strongly implies that Atomik Aztex is plotless and characterless making it what an exercise in language Let s hope the prose is good thenUnfortunately the prose could at best be described as uneven Foster is clearly a capable writer maybe even a great one But every great line is covered in garbage Sample line of dialogue Don t you know nothing Let me put it another way Why drown all your kittens in the same sack on a rainy day when you can wear concrete galoshes to your own funeral find yourself staring up thru the dandelions hog wild on a Month of Sundays in the Windy City Don t be such a Knuckle Sandwich Spaz Attack I m not being entirely fair that line isn t exactly representative of the entire book but it IS representative of a dense clich ridden six page dialogue with no tags or paragraphs none of which really makes any sense whatsoeverBack up Let me try and reconstruct the story a little bit For context The whole book follows Zenzontli Keeper of the House of Darkness and the only character possessing than one dimension Half the time he s a wage slave in a Los Angeles slaughterhouse The other half he s an Aztek sic warrior of some power and status who leads other Aztek warriors during the Battle of Stalingrad Guess which one s the dreamvisionhallucination It s the slaughterhouseas far as I can tell Naturally it s way complex than that There are characters common to both storylines although they share nothing than a name no character is really developed beyond physical description and mannerisms And the mannerisms seem interchangeable just like the spelling of every word Then you have the instances where the two storylines collide where characters address Zenzontli the meatpacker as if he were Zenzontli the Keeper of the House of Darkness All this gets pretty confusing and neither the writing nor the story itself possesses enough power to make the reader want to puzzle it all outIt definitely has the potential to be interesting there are some nice parallels between the savage Aztek culture and the eually savage though slightly subtly so American capitalist culture But why does Foster have to make it so pointlessly difficult There s no reason to cram all the text onto each page with half inch margins and no paragraph breaks There s no reason to include cryptic black and white photos at the beginning of every chapter There s no reason to spell the same word two different ways in the same sentence There s no reason to write certain passages in italics if those passages don t differ in any meaningful respect from other passages There s no reason to insert a page of text clearly culled from email spam subject lines into a character s speech That s not just me disparaging his writing he really put email spam in there PENIS ENLARGEMENT FDA Approved vacuum pumpsurgical enlargement Gain 1 3 Permanent and Safe Enhance Erection Dr Joel Kaplan 619 574 PUMP et ceteraAnd there s certainly no reason to end the mostonly captivating scene in the book with Except that never happened

review Atomik Aztex Sesshu Foster ☆ 4 Download Atomik Aztex Download ´ 104 Hic novels along with Ishmael Reed’s Mumbo Jumbo the paranoia of Philip K Dick and William Burroughs and an outrageous cyber Aztlán mix reminiscent of Guillermo Gómez PeñaSesshu Foster is the author of the critically acclaimed City Terrace Field Manu. Sadly this book is probably really fun The conceit an alternate world where Aztec Aztek in the book magic not only repulsed the Spaniards but led to Aztec world domination coupled with a world spanning plot bringing our protag back and forth to our world where he works at a meat packing plant killing cattle all day sounds like great funUnfortunately someone convinced the author that telling the Aztek part of the story which is the bulk of the story at least as far as I got in four to seven page paragraphs with no clear cues to the reader as to pacing or thought train and no way to bookmark was a good idea Clearly the editor fell down on the job it was his or her job and the job of the members of the writers workshop and the publications that printed portions of the book before it came out all thanked in the frontmatter to talk Sesshu Foster down from trying to be James Joyce at the expense of helping readers experience his or her world The writing in those unreadable blocks isn t bad The characters are developed slowly if at all but this isn t a character driven story Or plot driven for that matter The frontmatter also haughtily suggests that readers looking for a plot should go elsewhere clearly they don t deserve Foster s vision But auctorial excess is both one of the prices and one of the rewards of reading The milieu story is a good read I especially find myself wondering how the relationship between the two worlds and their separate kinds of sacrifices would pan out Unfortunately I don t have the time or the energy to read the rest I don t want to fight a book to enjoy it And unlike Joyce the words themselves don t transport me sufficiently to draw me alongI m glad I saw an in store employee recommendation for this book and I want to see another by Foster but I won t buy it until I ve spent some time with it in the store I regret wasting enough time that I m simply teased by it but I don t resent the shelf space I ll give it Well not too much
