Erik's Recent Updates

Old Custer by Eli Cash
"I will go against the critical consensus and assert that Cash most assuredly IS a genius. Admittedly his work so far is extremely derivative of Cormac McCarthy, but was McCarthy himself not slavishly derivative of Faulkner until the publication of..." Read more of this review »
Erik and 2 other people liked Allison's review of Old Custer:
Old Custer by Eli Cash
"Mediocre, at best. The language would get confused at times, and it seems apparent that the author's personality was imposed on the main character's motivations."
Erik and 6 other people liked Jbrancky's review of Old Custer:
Old Custer by Eli Cash
"Most historical accounts of the Battle of Little Bighorn focus on General Custer's Last Stand, a reckless demise of literary proportions. However, a few accounts challenge this alleged outcome, including this hypothetical historical narrative base..." Read more of this review »
Erik and 16 other people liked Joe Valdez's review of Old Custer:
Old Custer by Eli Cash
"Outlandish polemic by celebrated bon vivant Eli Cash restlessly argues that George Custer not only survived the Battle of Little Bighorn, but went on to become a naturalist, as well as godfather, as it were, of the national park system. Cash wield..." Read more of this review »

“If you're 50 years old or younger, give every book about 50 pages before you decide to commit yourself to reading it, or give it up.

If you're over 50, which is when time gets shorter, subtract your age from 100 - the result is the number of pages you should read before deciding whether or not to quit. If you're 100 or over you get to judge the book by its cover, despite the dangers in doing so.”
