American Siddhi
A story of the American Heartland, ranging from the Mississippi River to the mountains, it is the tale of a battle for a soul, and on behalf of the souls of the people of the land. Pitting the forces of culture against the power of the individual, the reader is left with a sense of hope and the possibility for a new myth, and a new story.

Assessment:

Steeped in mysticism and metaphysics, Curtis Mitchell's American Siddhi evokes storytellers like Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft at their most high-concept. Through a series of transcribed interviews, a sometimes-sailor named Quinn recounts the supernatural psychic phenomena he is attuned to and his struggles against a secret society out to transform the world. Fueled by visions, Quinn strives to quash a prophecy and preserve mankind's freedom. Briskly-paced and thoroughly researched, Mitchell succeeds where many of his contemporaries fall short: he has crafted a taut supernatural thriller based in real mysticism and philosophy that never feels preachy or gives way to the unnecessary sermons of an autodidact.
