My review of Forecast by Shya Scanlon is now up at The Cult. Vonnegut meets PKD, it’s a fantastic book. I don’t want to repeat everything I said in the review, but following this story from its original publication across dozens of websites as Forecast 42, to its publication by Flatmancrooked (which sadly is closing up shop) to the new release as an eBook, this novel has quite a history. It carries the political and philosophical angst of Vonnegut with the strange, near future visions of Philip K. Dick. This was a wild ride, one that I really enjoyed.
Some very kind words from Jed Ayers (Noir at the Bar in St. Louis) about Transubstantiate in his Barnes and Noble column today, when talking about The Dewey Decimal System by Nathan Larson (which looks like a great book). I’m honored to be mentioned in the same article as so many fantastic voices. And TDDS looks like my kind of novel. Be sure to check it out. Just follow the link above.
