Kill Baxter

Author: Charlie Human Format: Paperback Release Date: 09/04/2015

This is the brilliant follow-up to the critically acclaimed Apocalypse Now Now. And He Thought The Hard Part was Over...The world has been massively unappreciative of sixteen-year-old Baxter Zevcenko. His bloodline may be a combination of ancient Boer mystic and giant shape-shifting crow, and he may have won an inter-dimensional battle and saved the world, but does anyone care? No. Instead he's packed off to Hexpoort, a magical training school that's part reformatory, part military school, and just like Hogwarts (except with sex, drugs, and better internet access). The problem is that Baxter sucks at magic. He's also desperately attempting to control his new ability to dreamwalk, all the while being singled out by the school's resident bully, who just so happens to be the Chosen One. But when the school comes under attack, Baxter needs to forget all that and step into action. The only way is joining forces with his favourite recovering alcoholic of a supernatural bounty hunter, Ronin, to try and save the world from the apocalypse. Again.

Neil Gaiman meets TarantinoMit Apocalypse Now Now hat Charlie Human "e;ein verrucktes, finsteres, respektloses und wunderbar abgedrehtes Debut"e; (Lauren Beukes) geschrieben, das in seiner Heimatstadt Cape Town spielt. Sudafrikanische Mythologie + magiebegabte Kopfgeldjager + Rock'n'Roll-Highschool = punkige Urban Fantasy vom Allerfeinsten. Eigentlich lauft fur den 16-jahrigen Baxter gerade alles rund. Sein kleines Pornobusiness an der Highschool boomt, die Eltern lassen ihn in Frieden, und er ist uber beide Ohren in die zauberhafte Kleptomanin Esme verliebt. Doch als diese von einem wahnsinnigen Serienmorder entfuhrt wird, laufen die Dinge aus dem Ruder. Zusammen mit dem Kopfgeldjager Jackie Ronin macht Baxter sich auf die Suche nach ihr und entdeckt hinter dem gewohnlichen Alltag von Kapstadt eine Schattenwelt der Ungeheuer und Magie.Ein anarchisches, ubersteuertes und verdammt witziges Fantasy-Debut mit Kultbuchpotenzial. Mit Apocalypse Now Now und der Fortsetzung Kill Baxter macht Charlie Human den ganz Groen der Urban Fantasy - Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher und Ben Aaronovitch - ernsthaft Konkurrenz.

But when Esme gets kidnapped, things start to get seriously weird, and the only man drunk enough to help is a bearded, booze-soaked, supernatural bounty hunter who goes by the name of Jackson "e;Jackie"e; Ronin. Plunged into the increasingly bizarre landscape of Cape Town's supernatural underworld, Baxter and Ronin team up to save Esme. On a journey that takes them through the realms of impossibility, they must face every conceivable nightmare to get her back, including an odd brush with the apocalypse.
