Adrian Flodden, 23, is crazy for heavy metal, literature, and for women of 30 – although the latter pose a predicament rather than bring contentment. While his articles on a magazine draw attention to his favourite writers, it is by hosting a radio show in college that he either upsets or uplifts his audience due to the thoughts he vents and the songs he plays to back these up. Well, the music of Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Deep Purple and Motörhead (among loads of loud bands) might not be the answer to his problems, but it certainly helps Adrian and his friends to make better sense of everyday life.
STARGAZER: A rock satire is the portrait of society as seen from the angle of a subculture that reflects it, notwithstanding such society rejects anything off its boundaries; a tale that does not defy but mocks at conventions, denouncing the absurdity of what most people pin on those who embrace heavy metal.
Reproach, derision and reflection, along several nods to classic books, videogames and popular movies, plus a strong dosage of electric guitars throughout 13 chapters (as plenty of songs feature in and help tell the story)... quite a feast! No wonder STARGAZER just received the gold medal for humour/comedy in Dan Poynter´s Global Ebook Awards 2013.
