I’m in contact with four of them, and there were four more, but all eight were hesitant, reluctant, and mostly claimed to know little or nothing of what actually went down in the rather complex politics and personal relations in the shop during the years I was there. At first I thou... Read more of this blog post »

I've read stories by Trevor before but this book came as a complete surprise. At first, I found it's rather simple writing rather humdrum, even though I knew it was supposed to reflect the protagonist's own mind, thoughts, and life. But then the stor ...more

This is a baffling book of what can only be called second and third rate Kafka writing. I've been a fan and follower of his fiction ever since I read his wacky novel, Amerika, in college. The famous stories hold up and The Castle was also absurd and ...more

Agents of Dreamland by Caitlín R. Kiernan

I wanted to like this novella more than I did and one problem for me was the arty structure: the story is told by three people and only two of them interested me at all: the two "agents". Why they are of "dreamland" also escapes me. Some pretty weird ...more
