My review of Cowboy Maloney’s Electric City (Dark Sky Books) by Michael Bible is now live up at The Nervous Breakdown. Great little chapbook, very entertaining, a lush read. Bits of Hunter S. Thompson, a touch of William Burroughs, maybe Denis Johnson if he was lost in the desert, and a sprinkle of Tom Robbins for laughs. Dark Sky is doing some great things. Oh, and Barry Hannah loves this guy too (RIP Barry). Well worth it.
I’ve been a long time fan of Caleb Ross. I always enjoy his work. He has a wide range of styles and genres but his stories always go deep, they resonate, they move and disturb. His novels deserve to be out there, published, now. But until then, dig the new chapbook by OWC Press (Outsider Writers Collective).
I’ve read most all these stories already, since I workshop with Caleb and have known him for years, but I’ll post up an official review once I get it in the mail. For more of his work, check out the blogroll over to the right or click on the red picture.
