Knights Templar in a trailer park on the banks of the Colorado river? It only gets wilder from here. A great fantasy from the great James Blaylock, who mingles whimsy, imagination, and love for the overlooked joys of everyday life. There is intrigue, suspense and a little romance, but also passages like the one where a Knight instructs our hero in how to make sure a casserole is even better the second day (replace the potato chips in the topping before you reheat it.) Blaylock is obviously a disciple of Chesterton and Robert Louis Stevenson, but he avoids flashy prose in favour of sly, back-porch story-telling. His hero, a vague and comfort-loving cartoonist at the end of his youth, is an enjoyable companion along a trip into the mysteries of the Veil of Veronica, the Temple of Solomon, and a lost silver mine to rival the Comstock lode.
