    There has always been hints of the occult and evil in Kem Nunn’s books, but none take a full on plunge into the territory (unintentional pun) like this book. Not a horror novel really but a book that slowly reveals itself like a half remembered dream or nightmare with a slightly awkward start and remains fairly disjointed but becomes gripping as you try grasp any thread of logic to pull you through a labyrinth of UFO cults, crazed rednecks, mythology, bizarre murders, gone to seed hippies, something called “the mystery of the Mojave”, and other high desert weirdness. The plot is part caper, part religious vision, part horror, road trip, comedy, and all weird. Comparison to David Lynch, Nathaniel West, Repo Man, and Flannery O’Connor are well earned by these bizarre proceedings. Resonances with Manson Family, Jonestown massacre, Zebra killings give this spooky stuff some weight, especially delivered in Nunn’s earthy style with its causal vulgarity and clearheaded descriptions. Nunn’s work is all underrated but none more than this forgotten second novel.

    As the weather warms up my mind drifts to the open road, and Kem Nunn's brilliant southwestern gothic novel Unassigned Territory hits the spot. I'm looking forward to reading Pomona Queen. Nunn is great for fans of fiction about psychedelic drugs, UFO's, strange happenings, stranger religions, hippies, bikers, "California," and pot-induced paranoia. Recommended for fans of Repo Man, Thomas Pynchon's Vineland and The Crying of Lot 49, with a healthy dose of Scanner Darkly thrown in for flavor.

    I remember reading "Chance" by Kem Nunn, and wondering how could a guy who wrote: Tapping The Source, Pomona Queen, Tijuana Straits, and possibly the best of all of his books, Dogs of Winter, how could that author write a book this bad? Now I know. At some point after Tapping The Source, the author wrote this book "Unassigned Territory". What a dogs breakfast of a book this is. For some reason Mr Nunn, felt that Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, didn't do justice to the death of the American Dream, and so he decided to write this little opus, and stage it in the Mojave Desert in 1970. All of the characters are boring and one dimensional, and there really doesn't seem to be any point to the story, and it drags on forever. I couldn't believe it was only 300 pages, it felt like 1000.Skip this one and "Chance" and enjoy the rest of his books.

    As someone who discovered Kem Numn due to John from Cincinnati, and is a big fan Jfc, this was a great novel. I am a skeptic, a disbeliever in all things, but there is something about the absurdly unexplained in fiction that really appeals to me. I love the loose ends of this novel, the nagging suspicion that within the fictional reality of it, the main characters were truly on the precipice of a metaphysical clusterfuck and that perhaps if the book had continued past the last page all questions would have been answered... But what fun would that have been?

    Of all of Kem Nunn's books, and I think I have read them all, this is my least favorite. That may be partly because the story has nothing to do with surfing or the ocean and I am partial to those subjects in Nunn's hands. That aside, a mediocre Kem Nunn read is WAY better than many other options for how to spend your time."There was something else going on and he would be damned if he could say what it was, only that deep inside, in a core no one saw, tiny gears were failing to mesh, miniature wheels had broken from their stems and run afoul of the wiring." ........and..........this gem:"A lifetime of yearning unwound before him like some lost and endless highway, humming in a voice he could not name." ........I can name it Kem Nunn. It's the blues.

    I maybe unfairly judging this authors early book by his more recent work. I see all the seeds of the weirdness (compliment) that is Nunn's but the story seems somewhat discombobulated and difficult to follow. There is a moment at the end where things begin to pull together. A pivotal moment when the narrative comes to a kind of fruition. It still for me remains a suggestion and something that does not quite make the phase shift.The sensation I have is similar to that I had at the conclusion of "John from Cincinnati". Sort of "Um, what just happened?".I would contrast this to the end of "Tapping the Source" and "The Dogs of Winter". In these two narratives, there was an unfinished quality that gave the sense of a new beginning. Again this story comes close to that but does not pull it off like the two aforementioned stories.

    I have to agree with the general consensus that this is not Kem Nunn's best book...far from it, in fact. He's an excellent writer, but this one, well....right from the beginning it was a hard read due to the obnoxiously named characters (Obadiah and Delandra)...names that are so outdated and stereotypically white trash are hard on the eyes and stop the flow of a story. Secondly, the story started building and suddenly started twisting and became almost silly...the ending just sucked.It left a lot of holes and just went nowhere fast. I felt like this one really wasted my time. The best part of this novel was the descriptions of the desert and the accuracy of the "desert rat" mentality.

    This book is about religious cults, possibly Jehovah's Witnesses, Moonies, Scientology, LDS, or a combination of those. The ending was disturbing to me. I didn't like it as much as Tapping the Source or Dogs of Winter (two of the best books I've ever read). However, I left it at my in-laws house and my father-in-law picked it up and read it. He said it was outstanding. So I do recommend it if you've read the other books mentioned above and like Kem Nunn (and who wouldn't--he's amazing).

    Years ago a friend foisted two Kem Nunn books on me (this one and Pomona Queen), insisting that they were the Second Coming of Southern California noir. I couldn't get all the way through either of them. Now I realize this is the same guy who may have lured David Milch away from "Deadwood" and toward the unfortunate "John From Cincinnati." Ptooey.

    Not his best book. Most similar to John from Cincinatti tho, which doesnt say much.
