Hammers is a brutally funny book about the will to power, the mistakes of big science, and a rogue shark's eternal quest for fresh squid. Hammers follows a young rocker, his sister, their mutual girlfriend and three dumb junkies throughout their mutation from hapless humans into intelligent hammerhead sharks.

Ron Dakron

Nico, a young geneticist, perfects a human anti-shock serum made with hammerhead shark DNA. But the FDA won't let Nico try it on humans yet because of possible unstable genetic mutations. They want years of animal tests before she'll be allowed to try her stunning invention! But Nico's an ambitious pup and decides, what the hell, she'll try it on herself. Should be safe enough. Sure. Except it seems the lab's made a little, ahem, mistake--instead of grafting on a tiny slice of hammerhead DNA to that serum, they've glued the entire code on. Maki maki. Shark




Professional Reviews

Publishers Weekly, September 8, 1997
"Dakron keeps the story moving along at a sprightly (not to say manic) clip . . . readers of his third novel (after infra and Newt) will discover a writer with a fine ear and plenty of gusto."

Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 1997
"Ne plus ultra bizarre, man! With cartilaginous prose, soft as fishbone, sense-bending and scattershot as a Robin Williams shtick where lost meanings blast by, Dakron's third [novel] follows the comet trails of Infra and Newt with a morphological plot out of Ovid by way of Kafka."

Point No Point, Spring/Summer 1998
"Here's Mr. Dakron's fine recent book of fiction, alive and scathing and funny and sexy . . . It's a cross between jive bullshit, hip-hop Henny Youngman, and full-tilt Rimbaudian street-smartass sublimity . . . If you like relentless, lightning-fast, oh-so-witty prose, you'll like the book."
