Carnality: Dancing On Red Lake

Part historical fiction, part psychological horror, Carnality: Dancing on Red Lake is the first of a six-part series chronicling the malicious mavens and pop-profiteers of America’s Evangelical movement, as remembered by a mentally ill boy who was once the biggest child star of the scene.

Over the last four years Jacob Sloan has lived naked and alone within an abandoned island hotel, smoking cannabis, eating squirrels and swimming in a lake that contains a dark secret. As memory slowly begins to flower in his brain, Jacob recalls the traumatic events that lead him to the island, describing a childhood spent in fear of barcodes, the Antichrist, and being abandoned in the ever-nearing Rapture. In addition to his tales of madness and murder on an Iowa farm, Jacob also recounts the true story of how California’s acid-fueled hippies of the 1960s became the religious-right of the 1980s.

Carnality: Dancing On Red Lake is available for sale from these Denver retailers: Twist & Shout Records, Kilgore Books and Comics, Wax Trax Records, City O’ City, Lowbrow Arts, Fancy Tiger ClothingIronwood, Mutiny Information Cafe, The Oriental Theater, and BookBar.
