Memorabilia

 

 

Memorabilia A.S. Coomer front cover resized for website.jpg

​When adjunct professor Stephen Paul accidentally discovers the suicide note of his recently deceased friend, he unwittingly trips a wire into his own enigmatic madness. Within hours, the basic characteristics of his life rupture and are transformed by incarceration and psychiatric chaos. As a prisoner of the state and of his own body, Stephen’s existence appears absurd, ruthless, and barely stitched together. He must come to embrace that the only way out is through an associative mind, one that is as much invisible as it is material.

Memorabilia is a Kafkaesque narrative driven by the existential nature of creation. It’s a novel of self-discovery, exploration, and understanding, risking more and more as it progresses. A.S. Coomer questions the nature of reality and the reliability of the mind.

Coming Fall 2019 from 11:11 Press. Preorder here.

The Fetishists is “a hell of a ride”, according to the Toledo City Paper. Read their review of the novel here.

Rush’s Deal

Rush Walters is a comic book-reading teenager looking for all the answers, and he’s willing to look in all the wrong places to get them, too: from calling upon guardian angels to summoning demons, employing tasseography bibliomancy – and black magic – Rush is oblivious to the price he and others must pay for his Faustian desires. RUSH’S DEAL is a headlong dive into the dark side of the quest for knowledge. Part non-visual comic, part alternative history of a forgotten swamp & its cursed residents, A.S. Coomer’s debut novel is a ticket ride for intrepid kids of all ages.

***Rush’s Deal is currently out of print. A new, paperback edition is slated for publication in 2019 through Lit Fest Press, with cover paintings by Cole Dunn. Rush’s Deal on Goodreads.
