Nicboth by Cleve Sylcox is an imaginative romp through the worlds of fantasy and sci-fi depicting a dark time in the history of mankind. Sharon Lombardy is a meteorologist from the Melbourne Institute of Climactic Weather investigating a series of torrents that have devastated everything in their path. She has no way of knowing that the paths of a fisherman on Wilbur Lake and a United States Senator in an underground labyrinth will cross hers in a quantum leap towards doomsday. They are among the chosen few who are about to stumble upon a supernatural struggle on which the fate of mankind may rest.
Sylcox’s absurdist style has never been more evident as he sets his sights on the heavenly hosts, coming off his brass-knuckled Package series. Senator Newton wakes up to find himself amidst a think tank of demons set upon eliminating the Judeo-Christian institutions of the earth in an attempt to plunge mankind into an unprecedented dark age. They are led by General Que, an archfiend who is planning to bring the fallen angel Bel into his demon hordes in an assault against Heaven itself. Charles Hanson, a Missouri farmer praying for the torrent, learns that a mysterious black box holds the answers that the Senator and Sharon are seeking. They join with a small band of unlikely allies in an attempt to preserve the light of the world before it is too late.
This is a rollercoaster ride through the madhouse that only Sylcox could engineer. Pick up a copy of Nicboth by Cleve Sylcox and prepare for some devilishly stormy weather.
