Brian | 10 comments i have heard the name Brian Evenson a lot. he seems to have a blurb on every book i've enjoyed over the last few years. but i've never read anything by him. what book should i start with?

oh, man! i'm sorry - i never saw this post!!!

i have only read Dark Property, but i really liked it. very dark post-apoc novel. his last few books were kind of dark mormon horror- type stuff. sadly, i own nearly all of his books, including the geeky sci-fi stuff, but have only read dark property.

i was planning to read immobility next week, though...


Greg | 113 comments I only read The Open Curtain, which I think is a little different from his usual books. That one is a novel about his own experiences growing up as a Mormon. I really liked it, but I think it's quite a bit different from his usual fare. I wouldn't recommend reading the Aliens novels he writes under his penname B. K. Evenson, unless you really like Aliens and want to read more stories that take place in that universe.

okay, so i just read Immobility and i can definitely vouch for its quality. a true literary page-turner.


Brian | 10 comments the one book my library claimed it had turned missing. this will take a while.
