Interstellar News: I just finished reading “All-the-Way House” by Keith R. A. DeCandido. I got an advance copy as part of a Pensacon exclusive. It’s his take on the Jersey Devil and it’s Book 4 in the Systema Paradoxa series on various cryptids.

It’s split into 5 chapters. Chapters 1 and 5 take place in February 2020, Chapters 2 and 4 take place in 1909, and Chapter 3 takes place in 1735.

Chapter 1 introduces two Coursers tasked to deal with a “monster” on the beach at Atlantic City. Chapter 2 recounts how a then-Slayer first encountered the “Jersey Devil”. Chapter 3 is the secret origin of the Jersey Devil and the Leeds family. Chapter 4 dives into what they Slayer does with his newfound knowledge. Chapter 5 sees the coursers “deal” with the “monster” and explains the title of the book.

It’s well written, an easy read, and I was hooked on every word. It’s available for pre-order on Kindle or Paperback, and you can even get an autographed copy from the author! There’s one illustration in the back of the book, which is absolutely fantastic, and there’s a bit in the back about the origin and description of the Jersey Devil. If the Jersey Devil isn’t your Cryptid of choice, there will be 12 total cryptids available in the series.

TA Out!
