    It doesn't have quite the same rocking energy that his first novel Wrack and Roll contained but this is a very well written good book in the semi quirky tradition of Rudy Rucker and the best of Avram Davidson The characterization is especially well drawn and the plot while a little hard to completely buy all the way is fast paced and entertaining A good bet for a list of the best thinking person's intellectual science fiction novels of the decade of the '90s when the field was expanding in all directions without a particular destination in mind And we're probably lucky that such a list doesn't exist

    Over twenty years ago I saw a book on the shelf that looked interesting but I decided not to buy it I later regretted that decision and always wished I had Last month I discovered the book is available online for free so I finally got a chance to read it That book is Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on GanymedeThis book has one of the strangest premises for a novel ever The title is not a metaphor it's literal At the beginning of the story on the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Buddy Holly every television set in the world changes to a station showing a thin young man with thick glasses It's Buddy Holly himself somehow brought back to life He's in a transparent dome and stars and planets can be seen behind him that show he's on Jupiter's moon Ganymede Buddy has no idea how he got there and says the only thing he can see is a TV camera with a sign on it that says to contact someone named Oliver Vale for assistance Then Buddy starts singing and no one can turn him offOliver Vale is the hero of the novel a down and out TV repairman with a passing resemblance and obsession with Buddy Holly He was conceived on the day of Holly's death and taught by his mother that he has a mystical connection to Holly He's lived his life around Holly's music and even drives an Ariel motorcycle just like Holly Oliver has no idea why Holly has come back to life or how he's supposed to help him but Oliver sets out on a pilgrimage to Holly's grave site for answers Along the way the people and governments of the world are after him to try to get their TV working again including his psychiatrist a government assassin a televangelist cult a cyborg Doberman and a couple of space aliens in human formIf it's not clear at this point the book is a comedyOliver's journey takes him through the Midwest hiding out in grungy motels struggling with his temperamental motorcycle and meeting odd characters who have hidden connections to his life As the world goes mad from lack of television Oliver becomes public enemy number one considered a terrorist by the government the Anti Christ by the Christian right and a danger to extraterrestrials who've been hiding among us and risk exposureAt the same time half the book is dedicated to the life and times of Oliver Vale whose father killed himself leaving his mother alone and pregnant in the fifties Disowned by his grandmother Oliver's mother gets a job at a radio station and struggles with poverty loneliness and a growing obsession with UFOs As he grows up Oliver is forced to watch her life collapse around her in a surprisingly moving and tragic story partially told through her diary entriesMuch of the novel is about the power of music Oliver shares his mother's view which is that rock and roll is religion His gods are Elvis Presley and the Beatles and his prayers are pop songs His extensive record collection is his prized possession Every death of a major rock star from the Big Bopper to John Lennon is the death of a saint Throughout the book Oliver mediates on the effect music had on his life and the lives of others But it all comes down to Buddy Holly Holly's effect on the world through his interstellar concert is a metaphor for the effect he had on the music world in generalI found the book very dated to be honest It was written at a time when videotape and cable were exciting new technologies vinyl records were the main medium of music and televangelism was ripe for skewering In an age when hip hop dominates the radio and even eighties pop is on the oldies station celebrating the joys of fifties rock and roll felt like a distant memory I did get a sense of how rock and roll changed American culture and felt new and dangerous and it made me wish for those days againOf course the big question with a book like this is Is it funny? I say yes It didn't make me laugh out loud like the works of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett but it did make me smile I usually prefer comedic novels that are zany than this but I liked it Despite the weirdness I found the book very grounded in realism Most of the characters especially Oliver feel like real people I was impressed by the author's efforts to flesh out the story rather than just rely on sheer wackinessview spoilerMy biggest complaint with the novel is that the central mystery of Buddy Holly's resurrection is left unresolved The question of how and why Holly is brought back to life put on Ganymede and put on television is never really explained I mean it's implied it has something to do with the aliens but I still would have liked to have someone sit down and explain it fully considering it's the entire premise of the book I also found Vale's role in saving Holly vague and undefined He starts out headed for Holly's grave with no real plan as to how this will solve anything and then changes his mind two thirds of the way into the book and heads for a satellite dish storedrive in instead with even less of a plan And when Vale finally does what he was meant to do I thought Really? That's it? Vale's role turns out to be a McGuffin an excuse to get him running around with no real point hide spoiler

    A little bit mystical a little rock n roll and just a little bit of sillinessIt was a good read with adventures and humor but in the end it wasn't as entertaining as I thought it would be

    so much potential but is missing something

    I first noted the name Bradley Denton in connection with the excellent story “The Calvin Coolidge Home for Dead Comedians” in  The Magazine of Fantasy Science Fiction Along with Lucius Shepard’s “The Scalehunter’s Beautiful Daughter” it was my pick of best short fiction of 1988 and I tried to cajole everyone I knew into reading it Denton had a way with humor and pathos that captured the heart and soul of Lenny Bruce and John Belushi and said something about everyone at the same timeI was extremely pleased to find out that Denton moved to Austin sometime around then so that I could tell him how much I liked that story He was humble and effusive at the same time and the one thing that I remember him saying in response was “I don’t even feel like the same guy who wrote that story” It’s easy to understand his alienation when you realize that he probably wrote it in 1985 had it rejected a couple of times before Ed Ferman bought it say in 1987 and it’s ultimate appearance in FSF in 1988 A lot of things can happen in three years Three years ago Mark Ziesing sold books from Conneticut Ed Ferman was the editor of  Fantasy Science Fiction people thought the words Russia and USSR were interchangeable and there were American hostages in the middle eastWhen Neil Barrett Jr started selling his weird and wild stories to Asimov’s like “Sweetheart Ginny’s” the talk around the Austin SF scene sounded like this Neil must have sat too close to Howard Waldrop and mutated If not for the evidence of “The Calvin Coolidge Home for Dead Comedians” I would be saying the same thing about Denton now Denton’s first novel Wrack Roll didn’t do much for me but this novel knocked me for a loop  The biggest trouble with this book is that it’s hard to describe except to quote the title  Kind of like Howard Waldrop with a little bit of Ken Grimwood’s Replay and a lot of humor that is Denton’s own  This is my pick for the novel of 1991

    Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede lives at the wacky adventuremagic realism end of science fiction where the alien intelligences behind the events of the novel might as well be angels and demons for all the light scifi veneer of robots and so on But that's fine because the story's a subtle interweaving of a meditation on American music of the twentieth century and of the life of a single mother and her son and the aforementioned wacky adventure sparked when Buddy Holly appears on every television in the world speaking seemingly from the surface of Ganymede one of the moons and Jupiter and telling everyone that for information they should contact Oliver Vale our humble protagonist Any one of the elements might have fallen short for me but the combination really captivated

    I bought it at a library sale because of the title How could you pass that up?Charming witty funny insightful flawed in the way first novels are Even touching in it's way An explosion of imagination One of my luckiest hidden gems because it led me to read the rest of Bradley Denton's work All of which share a delightfully skewed imagination

    Twenty years ago I happened upon this book at a public library and found it to be delightfully entertaining science fiction comedy rock and roll and cultural history all mushed together For this read I had to buy a copy it not existing in the library system I'll no doubt read it again it's just plain fun


  9. says:

    Not great but an enjoyable well written book As the title implies this book is humorous no laugh out loud moments but still pretty funny The story and characters reminded me a bit of a Tom Robbins novel
