Mantids by Ron Dakron

Book Description

Mantids is an update on the world's oldest novel--Petronius's Satyricon--with a twist. In Satyricon, the hero can't get an erection; in Mantids, the narrator can't get rid of one. Combine his Viagra overdose with an invasion by mutant female praying mantises and a suzzed-out, speed-tweaker Astoria, Oregon locale; add biting comedy and a warrior heroine and stir into a B-movie plot stew and you have a classic Dakron novel, chock full of sardonic prose and more fun than a barrel of junkies.

Buy Mantids book by Ron Dakron from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.

Hammers by Ron Dakron Hammers, Paperback (October 2008)

A young woman geneticist perfects a serum made from both human and shark DNA. In her hurry and ambition, she skips biotech protocol and tries the serum on herself. But she makes a mistake: instead of shooting up a fraction of shark DNA, she pops the entire hammerhead genetic code.

Newt by Ron Dakron Newt, Paperback (January 1992)

A Caribbean woman loves a Seattle sculptor. Their romance should end with slurred Daquiri kisses. But there's this little problem. Someone else wants her- the guy in the aqua Thunderbird. The colour of his ride clues her who's driving. Her first lover. Someone related.

Infra by Ron Dakron Infra, Paperback (July 1987)

A failed artist receives a letter. It's a photo of his lost love, brutally murdered. He knows who the killer is - a young Venice mafioso. He does nothing, until the dreams start. Then he plots vengeance. He slays the mafioso. Yet the killer starts chasing him, through Spain and nightmares. And now the fun begins.

Author Biography - Ron Dakron

Ron Dakron is the author of four novels--infra, Newt, Hammers, and Mantids--. His work runs the gamut from surrealism to sci-fi pastiche. Point No Point tagged his novels as a cross between jive bullshit, hip-hop Henny Youngman, and full-tilt Rimbaudian street-smartass sublimity. Raven Chronicles judged him as sinister as a thirteen-year-old with a lighter and a keg of butane. Publishers Weekly deemed him a writer with a fine ear and plenty of gusto.
