“… reading it is like watching a terrifying drunk in a bar lazily hit bullseye after bullseye on a dartboard with their switchblade while they smile at your date.”

Scripsi sent me a link to this funny review of Shadow Country, a book I recently described as probably one of the best books I have ever read.  In fact, cowardice and “probably” be damned.  It is one of the best books I have ever read.

According to their Wikipedia entry, The Fiction Circus “holds staged multimedia fiction readings accompanied by electronic music and incorporating visual art and theater as a frame narrative” in New York City and Austin.
