“”Life of Polycrates” draws you into a grab-bag of epistles, history, classical literature, Greek myth, and some more original fictional elements – where one starts and another begins is anyone’s guess, however.”
Over at Omnivoracious, the Amazon blog, Jeff VanderMeer has done a really nice post about The Weird, in which he interviews Michael Cisco and myself. The post is here.
1. a rather odd-ball review of The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories for Antiquated Children at Open Letters. I can’t quite decide if it is positive or negative.
2. a story my wife and I translated from the Italian, by Luigi Ugolini, will be published in Ann and Jeff VanderMeer’s forthcoming: THE WEIRD: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Fictions. I am very excited that Ugolini’s tale will be introduced to new readers in English.
