Review – Edger by David Beem


by David Beem

Meet Edger (Ed-jer), a twenty-six-year-old gadget retail dork destined to become the world’s first superhero!

His superpower: the ability to channel the Collective Unconscious, a psychic network connecting the living and the dead. In his arsenal are the skills of Bruce Lee, the strength of Samson, the wisdom of the ages…and the dancing chops of Michael Jackson—including that one twisty foot move, crotch grab, and fedora tilt.

But there’s a catch…

Like every psychic superpower to get administered through a hypodermic needle, this one comes with a prick. Someone seems to have misplaced the booster necessary for stabilizing his superpower. Without it, Edger has three days before his brain turns to pudding.

Join our Dork of Destiny as he overcomes the world’s greatest butt, two rival Cluck-n-Pray gangs, an evil cow, a Green Bay Defensive Tackle, rifle-toting assassins—and a pair of stoners who inadvertently create the world’s first supervillain after a wild night on Twitter!

Missy’s Review –

This story has it all… Nerds, jocks, Super hero’s, ‘evil’ villains, Artificial Intelligence, Bruce Lee, nerdy talk and jokes. Oh and an evil cow. David Beem takes a 26 year old UBER DORK computer wiz Edger (Ed-jer) on a fantastic journey to become a Superhero. Edger must figure out how to control the Collective Unconscious and get back his buddies technology, InstaTron Tron, before it does something crazy. Or before someone influences InstaTron Tron to do more harm than shut down the power on the Eastern Seaboard.

The way the story is written has a kind of Big Bang dialog to it but somehow ‘Edger’ feels so much more relatable. I loved the character development, the humor and all the little fandom jokes ‘Edger’ had to offer. From start to finish David Beam had me hooked. You can’t go wrong with a ‘high tech super-advanced nano-artificial intelligence” that thinks it might be a neo-Nazi anarchist cow. If you like quirky characters and dialog, a little science fiction, artificial intelligence and superhero’s than you’ll enjoy ‘Edger’. I hope this story keeps going because Beem had me at “Welcome to UBER DORK. My name is Edger, Ed-jer, and I’ll be your Dork”.

David Beem enjoys superhero movies, taekwondo, and flossing. He lives in Djibouti with his family and crippling self-doubt. Help actualize David’s inner confidence. Visit his website today, and buy all the stuff. Facebook Twitter
