The beguiling sequel of sorts to All Souls demonstrates the capacity of prose that's sticky, engaging, unpredictable, flowing, insightful, and wholeheartedly written to leap the tall buildings of conventional narrative expectation in a single bound b ...more

Clear rating
Feels like a few days of consistent improvisation that came off well enough to call a novella, particularly the first half before the arrival of Maciste. Foreboding, anticlimactic, the tone of The Third Reich, sort of. Riffs reliant on outerspace. Ma ...more

Right book, right time, without a doubt. I've been experiencing a crisis of faith lately, muddling through a prolonged reading slump really only momentarily broken by KOKMS5. Getting 100 pages into long burly novels and bailing on them or "putting th ...more
