Born Against.

Vermiform Records.

Error Fanzine.

Men’s Recovery Project.

Wrangler Brutes.

Punk Planet.

On-air disputes with Sick of it All.

Touring Europe with Articles of Faith.

To accurately fathom the influence Sam McPheeters has had on your humble narrator during his formative years, one would need to employ the services of a couple of flowcharts.

Needless to say that I was intrigued when Sam started dabbling as a writer, with Loom of Ruin from 2012 being his novel debut, which, in essence, was a amalgamation of cliffhangers meandering to an apocalyptic end.

What makes Exploded View an engaging read is that McPheeters seems to have had an open concept during the writing process, with current and personal events finding their equivalent in this science fiction novel.

In the age of “fake news,” Exploded View with its short chapters evoking a cinematic feel tells the story of this decade, where falsifying news is de rigueur and where adjusting and modifying what is fed to the wider public as “reality” is a mere man-made changeable, nuanced constituent rather than an immutable constant.

With Sam McPheeters constantly reinventing himself, Exploded View whets the appetite for his next project.
