Brief intro: Joe wakes up in a barley field with no clothes, no memories, and no idea how he got there. Before he knows it, he's off on the last great journey of his life. With his soul guide Baker and a charge to have courage from a mysterious, alluring, and somehow familiar Stranger, Joe sets off through a fantastical changing landscape to confront his past.
The quest is not without challenges. Joe's past is not always an easy thing to relive, but if he wants to find peace—and reunite with the Stranger he is so strongly drawn to—he must continue on until the end, no matter how tempted he is to stop along the way.
Review: Winner of the 2012 Gaybie for Best Speculative Fiction. This is a strange book. Sometimes heartbreking, others hilarious, Joe's last journey is fascinating. Recommended for fans of the genre that want something differeny, of for adventurous souls.
