"Heaven is alright - it's just a little hard to find.”
“Spiritualized” is book One of the Spec Time Trilogy. It takes place over four days in 1978, four years before “Vaporized”, and is set in Boulder, Colorado. Colorado, home of the continental divide, is a magnet for the aging youth culture of the sixties, and Jon Cells is there to further his rock and roll ambitions. He is not alone. New Age thinkers have set up a Buddhist-inspired University, drug dealers are landing planes in the mountains, and movie producers are promoting a new horror film at the historic Hotel Boulderado. Law enforcement officers are trying to maintain the sense of order white settlers established when they found gold, the undead Native Americans want to reclaim their land, and the recent string of cattle mutilations has everyone wondering if aliens are to blame.
