The Galaxy Club by Brendan Connell

image "And that stick might work against fish or dragons or plaster virgins, but it won't do much good against the Galaxy Club." This is a book's book. One that I deem will be found necessary to be carried around in the pocket at all times - not as a good luck charm or a lofted cross to ward off or comfort some Brer Fox or goat crucified by the nearest tree - but potentially as an unmapped beaten road bible, or a dream-catcher, one that you can wryly resort to when the electricity is turned off and Kindles get too damp to ignite words. Permanently re-readable. Dog-eared is best. "A long time ago it was my father who boarded up the Devil."

Extract from my review here:
