Reading Log

How Some People Like Their Eggs, a chapbook of flash fiction by Sean Lovelace, was very nice; smooth, breezy and lightly whimsical Lovelace's voice convey's the complete assurance of a master craftsman. I agreed with Roxane Gay over at Pank magazine ( ) about the standout story being "I Love Bocce".

Read another flash fiction chapbook by yet another very talented young writer, Mel Bosworth, called When the Cats Razzed the Chickens. Well crafted and mostly in a whimsical vein but at only 23 pages this book almost just whets the appetite for more from this source.

Now reading a novel by Mac Wellman: Annie Salem, an American Tale.

The Mac Wellman novel, Annie Salem, was very entertaining and fun; wild flights of fantasy laced with wicked satire. I wouldn't call what Wellman does serious literature in the sense of being poetic or deep but it is extremely imaginative and witty light reading, an excellent foil for the more artsy stuff I've focused on lately.
