Heroin in the Magic Now is a pornographers tale, but not just any pornographer, oh no. This is a man, Gary Hack, who has found himself on the fringes of even the fringes, making monster porn for the most unsavory of clients. Men who will ask him to do things, things he can't live with, that is except for help of his ol' friend, a warm embrace, his very own personal demon... But just how much is he willing to pay for his livelihood, and his habit?!
I have been reading Terry West regularly now for the better part of a year and I have not once been let down. However lately Terry has found a whole new level of emotional maturity in his writing that has me just in awe. In the pornographer, Gary Hack a man who by all reasonable thoughts should be a heel of a man, some one deplorable, and detestable, instead is a complex character who beyond his failings is just a broken sad man struggling to find a way to make it through the life he has accepted for himself. You can feel his desire for more, but his lack of faith in himself out weighs any glimmering vestiges of hope. I found myself so invested in this man, and his struggles, it felt so personal that I can't help but like him. He's the epitome of the underdog, self made or not.
Don't misinterpret that though, the story has meat, raw, and bloody. Filled with strange fetishist monster sex, the dregs of society combining forces in this perverse pursuit of carnal entertainment, and all happening in the ugly underbelly that is city living.
HEROIN IN THE MAGIC NOW is a nightmare on acid. It is beautiful, deep and sad. To call it unexpected is such an understatement! I can not say it enough, Terry is a master of delivering succinct stories that although short, deliver you fully into their world, and live on in your thoughts long after the last page!
