"Wild satirical tale"
Hamza Senesert has a BA in English lit, but uses it to wash
dishes alongside of peers who cannot speak English. He does
write poetry when the muse hits him so one can claim
perhaps he is just a part-time slacker.
His roommate Ulysses "Yehat" Gerbles shares much in common
with Hamza as he too is a part-time loafer. Yet lazy bones
earns bread clerking at a video store where he has
developed a 5-L life taxonomy system based on his patrons
as he enjoys inventing things.
Hamza falls in love with Sherem, who he admits must have
come out of one of those Mummy videos as she is an odd
duck. She persuades her Coyote Kings (aside to those as
lazy as our heroes -- the royals are Hamza and Ye) to help
her find and safeguard an ancient Egyptian relic with
special properties. Their pals Kev and Heinz are also
searching with the Kings, but they work for Sherem's enemy,
who want to dine on Hamza's brain that possesses special
THE COYOTE KINGS OF THE SPACE AGE BACHELOR PAD is a wild
satirical tale that needs some time to understand what is
going on even with the epilogue at the beginning at least
until readers realize that they have no idea. The plot
spins out of control yet with all that gyration, fans who
appreciate a way out wacky tale will stay the course.
Nothing is sacred as Minister Faust skews anything and
everything through the antics of his likable idlers and the
immediate support cast who usually bring out the worst in
the royal slackers.
