Darger & Surplus At The Beach


I'm on the road again -- this time a day trip "down the shore," as we say here, to Mile Zero where Marianne and I will eat seafood, swim, and not do a lick of work all day.

It's a tough life, but somebody's gotta live it.

Meanwhile, here's the latest review of Chasing the Phoenix from the Barnes & Noble blog. Which is, I acknowledge, a marketing tool and thus unlikely to say anything bad about any of the books they're trying to peddle. But it certainly is enthusiastic.

Here's a for-example:

Much like its stars, the world of Darger and Surplus is utterly unique and easy to be seduced by. The setting is a distant future, long after our high-tech civilization has collapsed and the demons—literal—of the internet have been banished. It is a speculative fiction tour de force: a future dystopia populated with mythology and dealing in tropes of high fantasy.    

I won't pretend that such praise doesn't please me.

You can read the entire review here.

And every word of it deserved.
