Title: Hindu Sex Aliens
Author: Larry Weiner
Page Count/Review Word Count: 208
This is a very odd book, even compared to Paradise Rot and Once Again, with Blood, the first two books in this trilogy. This one is the finale of Weiner’s Island books, but this one breaks the pattern of the previous two by basically taking the writing rulebook and setting fire to it.
Weiner himself is a character here, and it works surprisingly well. Weiner doesn’t just break the fourth wall – he drops a nuke on it. The reader is treated to transcripts between Weiner and his psychiatrist as they discuss his writer’s block and his inability to finish the third book in his series. And so of course, in the end, he goes along to the very island that he created to find out what happens.
At the same time, aliens are invading and IT engineers from HP in a parallel universe are making their way to the island. Plus there are yoga mums and Hindu deities and a quite frankly impressive amount of amusing sex. This is delightfully farcical and satirical and a worthy end to the trilogy. Now I think I need a holiday.
