A Lightbulb’s Lament
Salad Fingers meets the Wizard of Oz In a dark arctic wasteland, Mr. Watts, a gentleman with a lightbulb for a head, wakes up with little memory of his past. He links up with Prisma, a beautiful ex-prostitute, and Doc, an old man who can heal people with his hands. Mr. Watts helps Prisma overcome the Gutter Bitches; in exchange for his help, Doc and Prisma embark with him on a journey to replace his lightbulb head, and maybe provide a bit of generous light to the dark, apocalyptic world. With a bloodthirsty Telemarketer on his tail, existential angst, and the world’s future perched on his shoulders, Mr. Watts has his work cut out for him. No one ever said a gentleman’s duty would be easy…
“In A Lightbulb’s Lament, Wamack gives us a flickering and awkward hero in Mr. Watts-a man with a lightbulb for a head-as he stumbles his way through The Great Blackout in search of The Creator. Along the way he fights with Gutter Bitches, runs from Telemarketers, and struggles to keep himself and his friends alive. Wamack has a relentless, incandescent imagination that takes surprising turns.” -Mel Bosworth, author of Freight
“I’ve never read anything quite like Wamack’s A Lightbulb’s Lament. It has the right combination of weirdness, comedy, violence, and existentialism. A uniquely fun read.” -Jordan Krall, author of False Magic Kingdom
“Watching Wamack glow for a number of years now, and the Lightbulb book more than fulfills that promise. A disarmingly naïve treasure trove of ideas and words; mixing the freshness of truly brilliant SF, Horror visions with an aura of traditional European literary Absurdism.” -D.F. Lewis author of Nemonymous Night
“Lot’s of good and strange and weird stuff happening in this book.” -Mike Kleine, author of Mastodon Farm
