Edger - Book Cover
David Beem, Author

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

His power: 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.

The 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!

liner notes for mixtape

Edger Mix: Fall 2018

"Edger Mix: Fall 2018" is a collection of songs that Herodotus, using the Collective Unconscious, pulled from Edger's head. Some are explicitly featured in the book. Others are thematically related. But stay sharp! Herodotus is wily! Some tracks give plot clues for the next book, And one was stolen directly from Edger's subconscious daydream and developed into a full-fledged original composition!
