Newman is a writer who commonly receives the dubious criticism of being too clever. Unlike moments in the work of the similar Waldrop I think the criticism usually rings false, because Newman always tells a hell of a story keeping you entertained while indulging his encyclopedic grasp of pop culture, history, and literature. “Amerikanski Dead”, “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” (w/Eugene Byrne), “Residuals” (w/Paul J Mcauley), and “Victorian Ghost Story” do this the best, combining history, pop culture, horror, and satire in bursts of surreal invention.
