Review: The Parasite From Proto Space

The Parasite From Proto Space


by Brett Petersen

A parasite from Proto Space, summoning memory eaters, funeral machines eating teenagers, space rides to Pleroma, and a frog baby that transcends time and space. These are just some of the stories that will warp your sense of reality until you’re living in Brett Petersen’s mind and you won’t want to leave.



5 out of 5

The Parasite From Proto Space is cheeky, hilarious and trippy. I knew from the first page I was going to love this book. I found Petersen’s writing style to be a bit reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Mike Russel but with a unique twist. If you’re a fan of strange fiction, or things that will make you wonder if you aren’t actually on an acid trip, you’re going to love this book. If you’re not, it might not be your cup of tea, but might want to give it a try anyway.



About the Author

Brett Petersen is a writer, musician and artist from Albany, New York, whose high-functioning autism only enhances his creativity. He earned his B.A. in English from the College of Saint Rose in 2011, and since then, his stories and poems have appeared in over a dozen print and online publications. “The Parasite From Proto Space & Other Stories” is his first book, and unless he is apprehended by the Trump Regime for being an outspoken autistic, will certainly not be his last. Academic critics should note that the subject matter of his stories and his taste in literature in general was heavily inspired by Japanese role-playing video games such as Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, and Shin Megami Tensei. Aside from his writing career, he is the rhythm guitarist and vocalist for sludge rock band Raziel’s Tree, a competent visual artist, Tarot reader, and would-be Kabbalist.
