Synopsis: Larry Ngitis is a painfully shy writer who travels to the sleepy town of Dry Water in hopes of getting his life and career back on track. He is soon besieged by some of the town's more unconventional denizens, including a witch, a mage-necromancer and assorted ghosts all of whom believe that Larry is a prophet of local legend returned to reveal the source of a mystical, magical spring that gave the town its name.
Review: His precognition has been of little use to Larry, but it shows him a vision of his future with Linda the C.P.A.: a stultifying routine until he dies. Larry flees to New Mexico, where he's greeted by a lightning storm with a personal interest in nailing him and the knowing ghost of gunslinger Matt Carlson. Caught in a duel between a necromancer and a witch, Larry's own sorcerous ability blossoms, and he makes the contest for power three-sided. The prize is the potent substance called dry water, which enables the possessor to change the world's past, present, and future. Eric Nylund conveys his vision so clearly that you'll taste the Silver Bullet's chiles rellenos and smell the mesquite smoke hanging in the mountains of Seco County.
