Reviews

Recommended for people interested in early works of the weird.


(3 stars)

This is an odd little book. It has tiny stories, arguably vignettes, that mass, undeveloped, in its pages. Many are excellent, some are weak, all are finished so quickly that unless you choose to linger they seem lost in the flow of stories. He cheats a little: many of the stories are effectively the same story. There’s a bleak humour that emerges from many of the stories.


(4 stars)

imaginative, visual stark, melodious. well read with calmness and variations
