Nik Korpon is crazy talented. If you are a fan of noir, this is a must read. Reminds me of Clevenger, Will Christopher Baer, and Stephen Graham Jones all wrapped into one. Definitely part of The Velvet. Nik is an Author to watch and I cannot wait to see what comes next from this amazing talent. Read it.

Dark, poetic, and heart breaking. This is my kind of noir. Nik Korpon brings all the power of his short fiction to these longer works, and more. Highly recommended, especially to fans of his short story collection, BAR SCARS.

Gritty. I can see why people like this book, but it just wasn't my style. DNF.

Gritty, Interesting, Baltimore, Love Story, Flawed yet Relatable Characters, Thrilling, Noir, Depressing, Poetic I could go on and on describing Stay Go d, Sweet Angel by Nik Korpon in short descriptive phrases but I wont. You are immediately roped into the story by introductions to the main characters, who despite the fact they are involved in the Baltimore drug trade, are written as truly down to earth characters. Being recreational drug/alcohol using cenophiles with good taste in music, they ...more

An engaging story of personal disintegration set to a backdrop of drug-dealing and deceit. This is a collection of two novellas meant to be a single novel, but I think the first story, STAY GOD, is a novel on its own given its breadth and detail, and the second story, SWEET ANGEL, is a novella and more of an aside--or, perhaps, b-side. I think STAY GOD stands on its own and didn't need the epilogue/prequel. But a good read, all around.

3.5 stars. I ended up liking the second story better than the first. Nik Korpon's writing has some truly beautiful turns of phrase but "Stay God" sometimes felt weighed down by all the inside jokes and I wasn't very sympathetic to the character of Michael in either story. I do like the way Korpon writes, though, and I look forward to reading more.

Loved the poetic writing style and cocaine psychosis of Damon was brilliantly described. After all we're all fond of kicking the arse out a wee toot now and then. Just felt the story lacked somewhat.
Guy bumps his dealer and his bird bolts. So fuck.
