Product description

Product Description

While chain-smoking Roy Scherer might aspire to fill loafers better worn by Marlowe, Hammer and Spade, reality wears such a whim thin. His clients veer from immortal to monster-brow-beaten, and he’s up against foes that howl at the moon, one case of Lazarus Syndrome, dismembered talking heads, and a vengeful Japanese spirit. Scherer's only allies? Ditzy, bookish assistant Suzie Miller, her gung-ho, mostly inebriated father Art, an ageless ballet dancer with martial-arts skills, and a Smith & Wesson boasting silver-plated rounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a champagne bubble, pop-pop-popping! 26 December 2015
By Daniel G. Helton - Published on
Verified Purchase
What do you get when you drop Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor smack dab in the middle of Ghostbusters? Or combine Tom Wait’s gutter-swept poetry with a Men At Work chorus? Or portray a jejune, seen-it-all cynic interacting with werewolves, aliens and an animated typewriter? Confusion? Some of that, for sure. Humor. Quite a bit. Whatever else comes to mind, “Small Change” keeps the reader on his toes and off his guard. Manga meets DC Comics. A liquor-soaked adrenal gland high. Andrez Bergen manages to serve it all up simultaneously, not without seams, but with enough stitching to keep it all together. “Small Change” is an intoxicant that will not leave you hung over in the morning.
3.0 out of 5 stars Vignettes that need development 8 June 2016
By Mets6986 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Andrez Bergen's work is a crazy-quilt of pop culture influences and references. The bedrock for much of it is the hardboiled private-eye tradition, but with a pronounced screwball comedy flavor.

Here there are two prime influences, both from U.S. TV of the '70s. First is "McMillan and Wife" and second -- as Bergen freely points out in his afterword -- is "Kolchak: The Night Stalker". I was (and am) a "Night Stalker" fanatic, so I know what Bergen was aiming for here: a mixture of supernatural horror and comedy, with monsters from various cultures.

The sensibility is right, but I think the stories needed more development. They're vignettes. My two favorites (the "Japanese" ghost and especially the Beer Monster) could have been brilliant TV episodes or novellas if they had been fleshed out. But after the Beer Monster got off to a very promising start, it ended all too quickly.

I wish Bergen had made this a series and rolled out full stories over time instead of putting all these pieces in one small bag. It would have been more in keeping with the inspiration.
